India: Slut Walks (Debate)

A bit of a damp squib but notable for the introduction. Stay tuned as the BBC turns its fire from Israel to India while civilization makes its way merrily toward the Abyss.

The Slut Walk wasn't an unqualified success either.

The Bhopal event looks like the most dismal flop imaginable. First, the name. Slut Walk, it turns out, does not appeal to that city's female population. The march had to be renamed: The PrideStride for Women. Next came the attire. Slutty outfits, the organizers agreed, would not go down well in Bhopal.

Related somehow: "At the end of the day you cannot tax beauty nor subsidize ugly."

Frankly demented: "I blame Christina Aguilera, who with her bleating hymn to self-deception, Beautiful, convinced a generation of broads that they were ‘Beautiful, in every single way’."

Via Five Feet of Fury.
