Why women should avoid dressing like sluts

Statement from slutwalk Toronto;
On January 24th, 2011, a representative of the Toronto Police gave shocking insight into the Force’s view of sexual assault by stating: “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized”.
As the city’s major protective service, the Toronto Police have perpetuated the myth and stereotype of ‘the slut’, and in doing so have failed us. With sexual assault already a significantly under-reported crime, survivors have now been given even less of a reason to go to the Police, for fear that they could be blamed. Being assaulted isn’t about what you wear; it’s not even about sex; but using a pejorative term to rationalize inexcusable behaviour creates an environment in which it’s okay to blame the victim.
Historically, the term ‘slut’ has carried a predominantly negative connotation. Aimed at those who are sexually promiscuous, be it for work or pleasure, it has primarily been women who have suffered under the burden of this label. And whether dished out as a serious indictment of one’s character or merely as a flippant insult, the intent behind the word is always to wound, so we’re taking it back. “Slut” is being re-appropriated.
We are tired of being oppressed by slut-shaming; of being judged by our sexuality and feeling unsafe as a result. Being in charge of our sexual lives should not mean that we are opening ourselves to an expectation of violence, regardless if we participate in sex for pleasure or work. No one should equate enjoying sex with attracting sexual assault.
We are a movement demanding that our voices be heard. We are here to call foul on our Police Force and demand change. We want Toronto Police Services to take serious steps to regain our trust. We want to feel that we will be respected and protected should we ever need them, but more importantly be certain that those charged with our safety have a true understanding of what it is to be a survivor of sexual assault — slut or otherwise.

Analyzing to much of the stupidity of all this is not what I want to do, but making a few point about how dumb people can be about been aware of the reality around them can put peoples lives in danger...
First would be the apologists inside the Toronto police force, if we read their statements, the first thing that crossed my mind is, "politically correct" but "realistically incorrect". If anyone was in a perfect situation to explain  what the statement about dressing like a slut really means, it was the female police officers of the Toronto police force or any police force for that matter. They are the ones who are in the front lines of sex assaults and rapes...
If they would of  been honest and caring instead of trying to be politically correct, this is what they should of said in defense of the one that made the original statement...
" Look you little shits, you wanna dress like a slut, all the power to you, you have that right, but believe us when we say, its not safe out there, there are bad people in the world, there always will be, we can't be everywhere. We all want to live in a fantasy world were we feel safe to do whatever we want, but this world does not exist, where as, most people are good people, there will always be nasty ones who hunt on the weak, these people are called predators, men and women. Now, predators on this planet, whether animal or humans, look for signs of weakness, or something that will attract their interest, in the animals case, it is for food, but in the humans case it is usually for other reasons.
Dress like a "slut" and you will attract the interest of the predator, it's not that you don't have the right to do it, as the antelope has the right to roam freely, but reality dictates to the antelope to be careful of its surrounding. Now the antelope knows this, how come you don't....
If you want to dress like a slut, you have to be aware of your surrounding, the idea that it should be safe is correct, but not realistic, you might attract the attention of that one, who is on the prowl, and this has the potential to put your life in danger...And remember, the young do not always do what they are told and usually copy those around them, by your irresponsible actions, you are putting their live in danger also.
It is not right, it is not what we want, but it is..reality."

In their statement above, they are right about everything they say, everybody should have the right to dress the way they want, doesn't matter who or what you are,(keeping in mind dad might be heartbroken if he see's his daughters dress like sluts, but hey, dad is a man right? who cares what he thinks? As long as he pays the tuition?)
The point is, and always was, we don't and never will live in the perfect world, the feminist who supports this, does it for power, if she would care, she would at least say.....be careful if you want to dress like a slut....IT'S NOT SAFE OUT THERE...But they don't do they.
We can protect ourselves against
Rape...
Murder...
Theft....
But it will always be there, understanding this, taking precautions, is what makes us safe.
The world is full of good men and women, we all care for each other, we all defend and love one another, we care for our children, our families, our elders.
And if we do care for one another, then we are obligated to understand and accept that there will always be dangers, to be aware of these realities, keeps us safe.

What does not exist is the socialist utopia those old feminists want you to believe will come about, maybe someday it will, but for the moment, it does not...
Smart people are always aware of their surroundings.
