Though FP mentioned this two years ago (and traced its origins in that previous post), the tips are again going around facebook, so I cannot resist. I theorize that the DSK arrest and the media attention to the SlutWalks has many of us hungry for their repetition! (Thanks, Sheri Ross)

You might also be interested in this one. (I like the one you’ve posted, but find it a little limited because it makes a negative point. The one I’ve linked is sort of a positive alternative proposal. Of course, these points are compatible and reinforce each other!)

profbigk, I always hope I am joking a bit. I’m sure it is not important. The somewhat odd thing is that the old post has fairly frequent visitors, so I’m wondering whether there’s a link, other than yours.

rape culture/victim-blaming e.a. is much too rooted in societies – and even today = 21st century, public administrations are still publishing leaflets telling women how-tos “not to dress/behave …” etc.
(e.g. ind Austria – german – http://anarchieundlihbe.blogsport.de/2011/04/14/wo-seid-ihr-massen/
