The New Paper “twisted our mission into something people could make fun of” – Slutwalk Singapore

The New Paper “twisted our mission into something people could make fun of” – Slutwalk Singapore

Why did they print this in a SlutWalk feature? Why didn’t they denounce it? Their intentions are clear: They wanted to turn the movement into a joke. They wanted to make people enraged. They might as well have printed: “I was playing StarCraft 2 and a bunch of banelings blew up all my marines, it was like being virtually raped.” Or, “I bought a lightsaber on eBay and got hit with a huge customs tax, it was like being fiscally raped.” Or, “I am a designer and I was forced to use Comic Sans, it was like being artistically raped”. What do all these statements have in common? All of it is irrelevant to SlutWalk. All of it trivialises rape and makes a mockery out of real suffering. All of it, and anything like it, should have been either A) not printed or B) printed and condemned by The New Paper. Instead, they printed it and left it floating in a vacuum.
