I had a really fun time yesterday down at Slutwalk Seattle 2012. I am also very glad that I had my press cred’s as an e-mail as I got asked at least four times about why I am here and what am I doing before we even made it to Westlake for the rally. Apparently if I heard it right they had to eject people for voyeurism, so I can understand the stress. There were about seven photographers I saw really covering the event. And the awesome intern from the stranger, I hope we see each other at another event, you were getting some awesome pictures.
One of the things that surprised me though were the number of men. I simply do not equate men as victims of rape, that is always something that will open my eyes. What you can’t imagine, can sometimes happen with negative consequences for the inability to imagine it.
I think this year was huge, with all the issues about denigrating women, women judges in Arizona saying you get what you deserve even if it is an off duty security/patrol person who felt you up. If you hadn’t been in the bar, then it wouldn’t have happened to you.
You can snag the pictures over on Flickr, with all the controversy over smugmug in the last couple of days, I’ll be using Flickr until I can figure out what I want to do with them. While Zenfolio looks good, you never know. In the mean time, enjoy the show, it was a very cool place to go visit. And I have to admit, it was a really fun photo shoot.
I will so need to find a good plugin for WordPress that allows connectivity back to Flickr Galleries, sorry about not being able to include them in here.
