Aww, it’s me & my sign, causing a tumblr debate. Yaay? For the record, I am “not asking for it” just because of what I am wearing… But I am a proud slut and “say yes” all the time for some hot, consensual sex ♥
PS When it happened to me, I was wearing hospital scrubs.
Nice try, really.
“So, in general sluts say yes, which means that sometimes they say no…”
No. A general truth indicates that something is a fact, therefore “sluts say yes” worded as a general truth means that they will NEVER say no. Which would imply that they cannot be raped, since they will never not consent. Which is why it’s a plain stupid sign, going against the other photo which depicts the true sentiment of the Slutwalk, which proves that even some participants of the Slutwalk have no idea what it’s about.
The numerous attempts to insult and mock me are ignored as usual.
Any further questions?
I’m not mocking you. I’m pointing out that it’s fucking sad that you feel you have to point out one person to discredit a protest that attracted thousands. No really, what are you trying to accomplish? And if you’re so critical of the way Slutwalk brings issues of rape to light, I’m curious as to what your ideas to stop rape are. Come on, man, enlighten us awful anti-rape activists with your brilliance.
Oh, and by the way, a generalization is a generalization. A “general rule” still has exceptions, that’s why it’s general. Thus, it is not that it is impossible to rape sluts, and one individual person saying that she is not asking for it is not a contradiction.
“I’m not mocking you”
Well, the second half of your last post consists of practically nothing but mockery, so I won’t waste my time arguing such a blatant lie.
“if you’re so critical of the way Slutwalk brings issues of rape to light”
Actually, not at all. I support its core concept. But there is an unfortunate aspect of it that subverts its whole point: the multitude of self-proclaimed feminists who have wildly varying concepts of it in their minds, along the lines of “reclaiming the word ‘slut’! Fuck yeah, proud sluts!” etc. etc. while completely disregarding its actual point: raising awareness about rape. Kindly tell me, how does a sign that implies that the woman holding it (as well as the others present, since they all identify as sluts) will have sex with practically anyone who comes their way speak AGAINST rape? To me, it would appear that it in fact PROMOTES rape, based on the “she had sex with tons of others, why would she refuse me of all people” delusion.
That’s the thing, that “she had sex with tons of others, why would she refuse me of all people” delusion…is a delusion. I’m glad we can at least agree on that, and I mean that in earnest. Women shouldn’t have to pretend like they don’t have sex with lots of people in order to defend against rape or being blamed for their rapes. So, fuck yeah sex positive, fuck yeah slut positive, and fuck no rape. These concepts are not mutually exclusive, in fact, they all go together pretty well.
Sluts say yes. This is the general rule. However, if and when they say no, since it is only a general rule, that means it’s still rape. Just because a self-proclaimed or societally labeled slut says yes when asked doesn’t mean that people suddenly get to stop asking. The proclamation of yes, once asked, is the exertion of agency. Never being given that opportunity is what robs one of agency and the ability to consent, thus making it rape.
