    The crass childishness of the ‘Slut Walk’ campaigns aside – do you want your son to grow up in a world in which all women can be safely, responsibly and reliably trusted never to point a false acccusing finger ?

    The consequences are life ruining and its frequency is hidden and lied about by the media and the intelligentsia.

  4. Hugo, I love you. This: we cannot reconcile our arousal and our compassion. In other words, the lie says we can’t truly respect what we also desire – is a big fat lie you have nailed! Well done!

    There are so many women working on this issue & I love that you advocate for simple, direct compassion.

    Bravo!

  6. I found this text from facebook. Many of my friends had relinked it, posted it to their friends’ walls and recommended it.

    I think it’s one of the best entries on the subject I have ever read, and I will intend to recommend, relink and post it forward. Thank you very much for this!

    Lemme guess, a man wrote this right? Of course men who want some one night stand won’t call a woman at that time a slut…

    Dude, a woman shouldn’t have to debase herself to just get acceptance. I’d rather be seen as modest than a revolving door. It’s amazing how a guy will sleep with the naked whore before sleeping with the girl who chooses to have moral values.

  8. I thank for the information.
