That is absolutely disgusting.  To think that people would even consider saying things like that to someone simply because she expressed an opinion just makes me so angry.  To think that people like that even exist and seem to have no qualms about posting these things on the internet for everyone to see goes to show the type of society that we live in.

Well, I’m not here to tell people to be angry, hopefully just from clicking on those 2 links, you already are.

I’m here to show my support for Lindy West.  I’m here to support her fight.  There will always be jerks in the world trying to keep others down, but that just means we have to join together and fight even harder.

Lindy West, I’m proud of you.  I’m proud of the stance you’re taking and the strength it took to take it.  Always remember, you’ve got people on your side.

SlutWalk Chicago

There is no question what I will be doing on Saturday.  Recently, I found out about the phenomenon known as Slutwalks, and am very happy that I discovered it before Slutwalk Chicago took place.  So yes, this Saturday, I will be Downtown, Chicago, participating in this powerful event, walking alongside my fellow people who share the same passion and values, listening to what promises to be some wonderful speeches,and getting the word out as much as possible about this great flaw in society.

So, if you are in or anywhere near the Chicago area, please join me on Saturday for this great event.  It begins at 11:00am at Thompson Center, from there we will walk to Daley Plaza to listen to the speakers, and the day ends at 3:00pm.  I am very much looking forward to this, and I hope all of you are too!  Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to see as many people there as possible!

Also, here is the facebook event page for further details: http://www.facebook.com/events/356219161132288/

I will also be posting photos of the event, probably Saturday night or Sunday.
