    Exactly. I marched in Burlington, VT’s first anunal SlutWalk yesterday afternoon in an attempt to fight back against this sort of hate and harm to women and girls, and b extension, to LGBTQ people and male victims of rape and assault. It’s discouraging to find out that while I was making signs and starting dialogue on my campus to encourage fellow students to march with me, The View was inflicting 20 times the harm that our little protest helped. It’s shows and attitudes like this that had people glaring at us and making nasty comments, telling us we were disgusting for fighting back against rape culture. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 college women will be sexually assaulted. No one deserves that, but women who encourage rape culture by slut shaming and victim blaming do a lot more to help along their own victimization than any miniskirt ever has.

    Thanks so much for posting this, it’ll really help me! I have an internship in the fall and have been–I’m ashamed to admit–falling all over myself trying to figure out what I’m going to do. I’m excited, but its scary too! Especially for someone not used to having to, say, network. I was accepted as an intern at a place where it would seem mandatory to network, too. (Its at the local offices for a member of the House of Representatives.)
    I’ll be starting that first day with a lot more confidence. Thanks, Emerald. 🙂
