A Dose of Buckley 45 – Slutwalk

I feel like I haven’t REALLY offended anyone in some time now. Not that it’s necessarily my intention to do so, it’s more a byproduct of the way my mind works. Anyway, if I don’t this week, then it’ll only be because no one’s viewing this.

The Slutwalk took place this weekend in Toronto. What’s the “Slutwalk” you ask? Well, it’s a protest brought on by the whole York University thing, where a cop came in and gave a presentation on preventing sexual assault and said that you could do so by “not dressing like a slut”. Apparently this is the wrong attitude to have, because it blames the victim. I don’t feel it blames the victim any more than telling people to stay out of the African jungles if they want to avoid being eaten by lions. Sure they shouldn’t tell you where you can and can’t go, but it’s advice you can take or leave. Anyway, watch the video for my full rant:
