Officially Studio5Graphics will at this year’s major fund raiser for Slut Walk Seattle. This is one of those best causes you can be involved with, and we will be helping out with the photo booth so you can get your fun on and get some cool pictures along the way as a donation. We are donating our time, our gear, and our box of awesome props, you donate a buck or two to Slutball and walk away being happy. A bit about SlutWalk so you know what is going to happen here:
What: on January 24th, 2011, a Toronto police officer gave some advice that is all too common: “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” From an 11-year-old in Texas being blamed for being gang-raped to a teenager in Seattle not being able to file rape charges because witnesses “portrayed the act as consensual,” this line of thought pervades our culture. As long as it seems like the woman might like sex, they’re made to take the blame.
We’re sick of slut-shaming and victim-blaming being a part of our culture, so we’re doing something about it: we’re going to make our voices heard. On Sunday, August 25, 2013 we will walk in Seattle to stand together to shift the blame from victims, fight the social acceptance of rape in our culture, and re-appropriate the word “slut” as one that cannot be used to harm.
People of all orientations, gender identities, races, ages, abilities, walks of life, and levels of sluttiness are invited to join us. All we ask is that you stand with us for what is right. We’re sick of being shamed for our sex choices and being told that survivors of sexual assault brought it on themselves. If you’re sick of it too, come walk with us!
So this fundraiser is pretty important to getting Slutwalk to happen, so many very cool people are donating time, energy and support for this amazing group that you need to come on down and say hello to everyone. And get a groovy picture taken at the same time. So say hello, meet us at the Re-Bar at 8PM sharp and let’s get our party on.
