For Sluts Only

1.  the doctrine advocating social, political, and all other rights of women equal to those of men.

Why anyone wouldn't be a feminist beats me, but yes, I am a feminist, and proud of it.  As well as being a proud LA Slutwalker, and seeking to advance equal rights for women and men, and protection for children, planetwide.  

VICTORY!!  The FBI responded to petition and lobbying efforts and updated their definition of rape:
The old definition, adopted over 80 years ago, had been extensively criticized for leading to widespread underreporting of rape. Defined as "the carnal knowledge of a female, forcibly and against her will," it excluded rapes involving forced anal sex and/or oral sex, rape with an object (even if serious injuries resulted) and rapes of men, and was interpreted by many police jurisdictions to exclude rapes where the victim was incapacitated by drugs or alcohol, or otherwise unable to give consent. The old rape definition excluded many rapes against women and all against men.
The new definition, as it appears on the FBI website, is: "Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim."

And of course, the latest WTF is the concept of "legitimate rape." As opposed to the other kind.

I do primarily write about other things than rape and sexual assault.  So if you're looking specifically for posts about these issues, I have conveniently gathered them together here, along with posts and articles not by me but which I thought were pretty good.  Please feel free to add more links in the comments.

Meredith B. doesn't mention the word "slut" in this video, but it's all about the attitude.  Slut, bitch, I will not be ashamed.   No matter what somebody calls me.  Nor will I try to fit myself into someone else's idea of how I "should" behave or look.

Are you a slut too, or just a feminist?
