SlutWalk Los Angeles Happens Saturday in West Hollywood
Walking the walk.
There are perp walks. And power walks. Now there's a SlutWalk coming to West Hollywood tomorrow.
But before you line the parade route, Charlie Sheen, note that the participants aren't embracing your kind. Rather they're protesting the notion, uttered this spring by a Toronto cop, that "dressing like sluts" could get women raped.
It sparked a global backlash. The SlutWalk, since successfully organized in Toronto, Boston, Amsterdam and Brazil, was born.
Participants want it known that it doesn't matter if they're in high heels or long pants -- nothing invites rape.
Saturday's event happens at noon at West Hollywood Park (647 N. San Vicente Blvd.).
Bring your heels. Or not.
