Earlier this month, Dallas SlutWalk launched its Facebook page in advance of what I assume will be the first ever slutwalk in Dallas, planned for April 23 at Dealey Plaza. What is a slutwalk, you ask? From Dallas SlutWalk:
A Slutwalk is a walk in which women (and men) walk to protest rape culture and slut shaming. It is also to promote the idea that a slut isn’t necessarily bad, but that society is constantly putting a bad connotation on the word itself.
You can learn more about it here. One presumes former Observer scribe Andrea Grimes is already signed up. (And, please, people. I’m not calling Andrea a slut. I’m just saying that this is her bailiwick. That’s all. (By the way, it’s especially delicious to read her post about her former co-worker, Richie Whitt. First sentence: “It can be hard to tell that Dallas Observer sports blogger Richie Whitt is a sports blogger, since his professional blog, the one that is actually hosted on Village Voice servers, largely consists of pictures of women in various states of undress and reflections on recent Korn performances, so you could be forgiven for wondering where the hell he thinks he gets off shitting on Texas Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis for having the gall to miss a start in favor of attending the birth of his second child.”))
