WELLINGTON (AFP) – Nearly 1,000 people, many of them scantily clad women, joined New Zealand's "SlutWalk" marches Saturday protesting that victims were not responsible for rape.

About 500 marched through the streets of Wellington and more than 400 in Auckland carrying signs that read "Real men take no for an answer" and "A kiss does not equal consent", reports said.

The "SlutWalk" phenomenon, which has spread around the world, was sparked by a Toronto police officer saying women could avoid being raped by not dressing like "sluts".

Wellington organiser Maria-Jane Scannell said the same attitude existed in New Zealand and it placed the blame on the victim rather than the rapist.

"We?re all here because we agree that rape and sexual assault are never the fault of the victim," she yelled through a megaphone.

Natalie Thorburn, 21, told Fairfax Media she joined the walk because she wanted to change the culture of blame.

"We want to make a statement to say we can wear whatever we want," she said.

In Auckland, the crowd marched through the central city chanting: "Yes means yes, no means no, whatever we do, wherever we go."

Rape survivor advocate Louise Nicholas said young girls going out late at night did not deserve to be raped.

"Nobody ever deserves to be subjected to such a heinous crime and that?s exactly what rape is," she said.

"I want to take this opportunity to mention how thankful I am for an Obama re-election. The choice was clear. We cannot live in a country that treats homosexuals and women as second class citizens. Homosexuals deserve all of the rights and benefits of marriage that heterosexuals receive. Women deserve to be treated with respect and their salaries should not depend on their gender, but their quality of work. I am also thankful that the great, progressive state of California once again voted for the correct President. America is moving forward, and the direction is a positive one."

lol I'm starting to think a lot of those gals that participate in these "####### Walks" do it just so they have a reason to go out and "strut their stuff".

The '####### walk' phenomenon is just old news. Why don't they think of something new?

Actually it was a Police spokesWOMAN not spokesman....who suggested a women dressed like a #######, might be sending suggestive signals.

I have written to the local police force and asked them to retract their suggestion that

people should place valuables in a locked trunk when shopping.

After all, isn't asking people to change their behavior, actually blaming the victim of crime?

:whistle:

That's why I carry a handgun concealed on my person. No need to change MY behavior...or be the victim.

I hear ya, for those who don't pack.... they have been advised to take proactive measures to minimize the likelihood of being a victim ... such as to not wear jewelry or carry expensive electronic gadgets around in "certain" areas.

Why_Me is obsessed with the ####### walk movement. At least I can admit to my ####### obsession.

Rather I am just concerned for the well being of all these well intentioned women who are making sacrifices for sluts all over the world.

So anyways...tell me more about this ####### obsession of yours. Like when did it first begin ?

English only outside the regional forums, please!

Actually it was a Police spokesWOMAN not spokesman....who suggested a women dressed like a #######, might be sending suggestive signals.

In January, Toronto Police Const. Michael Sanguinetti told a personal security class at York University that "women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized."

So anyways...tell me more about this ####### obsession of yours. Like when did it first begin ?

I'm sorry. I think you've mistaken VJ for wannagetmygrooveon.com.
