Interesting debate, one worth my belated two-paise: Tongue LOL

I don't think it was the intention of the Ralliers, as RTH pointed out previously, to glorify the derogatory term of "s**t", though I'm personally against the word being used even in a rub-in-your-face fashion, simply because that actually re-in-forces the view of non-conforming women as "s**ts".

Also, many people are taking it in the manner that this Movement had justified dressing up in inappropriate attire. I think that's a gross misunderstanding of the intention that the Rally strove to drive home.

The "does-this-mean-it-is-okay-to-dress-like-a-s**t" is kinda invalid in this whole context, simply because the message wasn't the "Defense of indecent clothing". Rather, it implied the oft-touted and oft-conveniently-ignored fact that  "Dressing inappropriately does not make a woman "fit" to be raped."

That's a fact, one that none can mitigate by any human argument.

As per as indecent dressing is concerned, its more an issue of the wearer's taste and self-respect, that she's likely to have questioned, in that that she chose to wear attire unsuited to her dignity. That'll be a vilification of the wearer from the WEARER'S POINT OF VIEW. But such criticism does not amount to pandering the belief that "Dressing inappropriately makes rape of the wearer okay".

There's a huge confusion in this issue on separating the two contexts adequately.
