No. Just listening to Jeremy Vine on slutwalk. Jeremy is his usual provocative self…but then, that’s his job.
It’s the phone-ins and the e-mails. So many comments around the provocative nature of what women wear. One commenter suggesting that if you dress as a pork chop, you shouldn’t take up lion taming.
Someone else saying that this movement overlooks millions of years of evolution.

Not that these comments exist.
But the whole tenor (including the old codger on now) suggesting that women should learn “common sense”.
Slutwalk is needed. Utterly. Absolutely. As long as this attitude is endemic, that by dressing in a certain way, one is somehow to blame…
