Just because I decided to wear booty shorts does not mean that it's okay to take advantage of me and rape me. amirite? Sluts Don't Cause Rape, Rapists Do: Why "Slutwalks" Are Sweeping the World | AlternetThe idea behind the Slutwalks is simple, yet so often fails to get through: rape is rape, no matter what the victim wears, says or does.
