Slut Walk 2015: The same old song and dance


The Slut Walk 2015 season is here.  This means scantily clad women parading in the streets chanting “yes means yes!” and all the while pretending to be victims of supposed rape culture.  It’s the same old song and dance (even though they do it anew every year) of “muh sexual freedoms” and reductio ad Patriarchy.

On January 24, 2011, Toronto Police Constable Michael Sanguinetti said, ” …Women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.”

Sanguinetti’s abrasive advice is what started Slut Walk, and for the record I’m glad that we have men and women speaking out against rape culture in response to him.  I’ve heard worse advice on how to prevent rape, but it’s important to recognize that rape culture didn’t just spring up out of nowhere.The only person to blame for the violent act of rape is the rapist.  We cannot stop rape by telling the victim that he or she need to take greater responsibility for their own appearance and lifestyle choices.  We stop rape by teaching each other that it is socially and morally unacceptable to the nth degree to violate another person by raping them.  However, even if every man in the world were neutered it wouldn’t excuse immodest behavior on part of the woman.  The feminist community has lately turned into a band of wailing infantile children despite the warnings and observations of prominent feminist author Camille Paglia.  I’m realistic enough to realize that slut culture and rape culture are not curtailed by limiting female agency, so don’t think that the men are getting a free pass here.  I will not write an article about what men’s responsibilities are because of the fact that almost all of my writing is targeted at the male demographic between 16 and 38.  Lecturing men about how men should behave is almost all that any of TYN’s writers do around here.

The amorphous collective of students and community members who participate in Slut Walk think that rape and sexual assault prevention has something to do with being able to flaunt their sexuality like an animal in heat without having unwanted advances made on their person.  The crux of their argument comes down the notion that a woman should be able to dress and act however she wants without fear of being raped as a consequence of said behavior.  The onus of responsibility is placed on men, because women are only responsible until they’re not responsible (no surprise there, right?).  The control comes by blaming men for every sexual impropriety committed by any man (and in this worldview also every woman) and leaning on social and legal controls to license and protect their bad decisions.  In a very basic way, that is one way to prevent rape, but then again so are chastity belts.  But, that doesn’t really “fix” the problem, does it?

Several of us writers at TYN have already talked about Slut Walk and the very thing it purports to be against.  Aside from the commonsense approach that rape culture (if it even exists at all) is the product of bad choices by all parties involved, none of us have really given an Evolian perspective of this phenomenon.  There isn’t one specific action to blame, and neither is it something that only men or only women are blamed for.  Even in Julius Evola’s most misogynistic writings he condemns Schopenhauer’s estimation that women’s sexuality is mere “bait for procreation,” and the causes of rape are fundamentally different than what we perceive them to be now.

I won’t spend time quibbling over the differences between rape and rape-rape, but there is something happening between men and women that women perceive to be a violent crime, suffice to say I won’t venture into whether or not all sex is categorically violent.  The nature of sexual intercourse of whatever type and the varying degrees of consent are not things that I am arguing here.  What I am arguing is why we keep seeing instances of sexual assault and unintended sexual lifestyle-related consequences.  Evola gives us a starting point.

“In natural erotic development, every experience of deep passion and strong inclination doubtless follows the path of that which is called ‘pleasure,’ but it does not have pleasure as a principal and preset objective; if it does, we may well speak of lust and debauchery, which are trends corresponding to dissociations, degradations, and ‘rationalizations’ of physical love.  The idea of ‘pleasure’ as a ruling motive does not exist in the ‘normal state of eros,’ but the impulse aroused by sexual polarity causes a state of intoxication reaching it’s apogee in the ‘pleasure’ of physical union and orgasm.  Any man who is truly in love, in possessing a woman, entertains the idea of pleasure as little as that of children.” (Evola, Metaphysics of Sex, p18)

Those who haven’t read Evola may be surprised to learn that he almost completely dissociates love and sex.  Rape and sexual assault happens to a person when men or women choose to associate with people who don’t love and respect them.  Alternately, the kind of people who commit sexual assault quite simply don’t don’t have a heart, are not seeking a lasting loving relationship, and are bound up in an addiction to pleasure.  As with all addictions, the person addicted to pleasure will cross all manner of social boundaries to get his (or her) fix.  Women might feed their addiction for pleasure by seeking fast relationships, and men might be getting their fix from taking advantage of and degrading those same women.  I shouldn’t have to say it, but just to make it clear: When men take advantage of women in such a manner it is at least as degrading to the man for violating all pretenses of honor and civility.  I can’t honestly say that rape culture exists, but I can say that simple degenerate behavior from both men and women does exist and what we’re seeing today is, as Evola describes, symptomatic of a debased and degenerate society.

“In periods of decadence such as the present one, sensuality develops in the dissociated form of simple pleasure.  As a result, sex becomes a kind of drug, and the addiction to it is no less profane than actual drug addiction.”(Evola, Metaphysics of Sex, p18)

And decadence we have in abound.  Bloomington, Indiana was recently named the fourth gayest city in America while having only two or three “official” gay bars.  Bloomington also has the fifth largest gay population per capita.  That’s pretty amazing to think about when you consider that a 30 minute drive in any direction outside of Bloomington puts you into solid GOP country.  Indiana was also in the news lately.  No, not for RFRA, but for something else: an outbreak of HIV.  This is just not a great combination.  An HIV/AIDS outbreak, a large gay population, and promotion of consequence-free sexual lifestyle is just not a great place to be in.

If the looming HIV and AIDS outbreak weren’t bad enough, just remember that things can always get worse.  And, yes, it does get worse.  The kind of lifestyle that Slut Walk activists and sympathizers promote is dysgenic.  I’m not saying that everything comes down to whether or not members of society are being pro-creative and having children, but it’s kind of a B.F.D. when the people who are producing are teaching the next generation a dead-end lifestyle, transmitting HIV, choosing abortion over adoption programs, or simply opting out of society for whatever reason.  Women might indeed be chanting “consent is hot!”, but their male supporters are singing the chorus just under their breath: “reneging is not!”

    I always thought that men and women are complementary,and not contradictory…Each gender has it’s roles and qualities ,and It’s a grave mistake to downplay the importance of one of them in order to benefit the other,as the radical feminists like to do.
    As for the so-called ,,rape culture”,this concept is one of the brainchildren of the feminazi worldview,very similar to the ,,us vs the world” atitude of the jews.
    I once read a very interesting essay written by Amory Stern called ,,the Women of Christendom”,detailing the holy role of the women in the Holy Scriptures and the christian social teaching,with an emphasis on the orthodox worldview(the author himself is an american convert to Orthodoxy).
    I appreciate this article,comrade Thomas!Keep up fighting the good fight!

    Slut Walk is a good I.D. event of who not to date, anyway, and who to try to “brainwash”, which is to say, clean their brains of feminist propaganda

    We truly are in the “Times of Noah”, when the Whores of Babylon feel free to walk our streets and feel no repercussions from the general population.
    May God have mercy on us all.
