      public perception and media debacles. Not the issue of the march at all. This is evolving faster and wider than I ever expected.

      And yes it is going to overshadow the whole slutwalk thing anyway. Not a great time in life to be seeking attention for rape issues in downtown NYC.

      I'm holding my breath each day and sleeping less, etc. This is not a regular old time in history. Yes I think the whoile world should be focused on this and only this right now.

        it's honestly a moot point. Slutwalk isn't going to cancel, and IMO they shouldn't. And I don't see it diluting the OWS message at all. I think it will amplify it, if anything.

        One great big festering neon distraction, I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

        The corporate media is not our ally, it is the ally of Wall Street. It is 100% Wall Street owned and operated.

        OWS will succeed in spite of the corporate media, not because of it.

      see...it would be different if we were talking about you know...brown people or gay people. Hate against them stands out. Belittling and and dehumanizing women...thats just standard.
