Last edited 19th May 2011

On the Imprudence and Uncharitableness of Immodesty

Last edited 17th May 2011

A Toronto police officer has turned heads around the world by saying, “Women can avoid rape by not dressing as sluts.” His remarks have touched off worldwide protests in Europe and also in Boston and New York by women who engage in what they call “Slut Walks.” In these, they dress provocatively and carry signs that denounce the blame the victim attitude of the police officer and others who explain rape by blaming the victim. There is nothing that justifies the rape or assault of any woman, and the police officer was very insensitive in his remarks. However the reaction has gone the other extreme, by glorifying immodesty.

Last edited 4th May 2011

The Australian Government is cracking down hard on tobacco industries but what is most frustrating is the hypocritical approach given to other public health issues.
