Twin Cities Slut-Walk scheduled for October 1st at 2:00 p.m. at Saint Anthony Main to prove that women can walk around in skimpy clothes without being sexually assaulted.
Girls, you’re missing the point. A woman couldn’t get sexually assaulted at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon on Saint Anthony Main if she were stark naked carrying a sign begging for it. At worse, some tourists from St. Paul might take your picture to show the folks back home.
It’s not risky behavior if there’s no risk. Reschedule the event for 2:00 on a Saturday morning on the U of M campus.
I’m not sure if any of these “slut-walkers” have turned up on First Avenue North on any given Friday night in the summer. It’s kinda passé, I’d think. But what do I know.
