A female journalist attended a Slutwalk rally holding up an inflammatory sign reading: ‘There is no rape culture in the West’. Lauren Southern, a reporter from Rebel, was filmed waving the sign and interviewing those attending the event in Vancouver, Canada. Miss Piggy wrote an essay about feminism and it’s fabulous, obviously Slutwalks are organised protests inspired by a 2011 comment by a Toronto police officer who said ‘women should avoid dressing like sluts’ if they wish to avoid sexual assault.

USA downed Germany (Picture: Getty) A little bit of success can go to anybody’s head – but it’s pretty ridiculous in the case of the USA national team.

And if that’s what you’re aiming for, then you’re doing […] Read more →
250 students donned fetish gear…or came as grandpas (Picture: The Tab ) Police had to shut down an ‘S&M and M&S’-themed fancy dress party when they found 250 students in leather bondage gear… and grandpa outfits. University revellers in Jesmond, Newcastle, went all out for the birthday party, with some donning corsets and thigh-high leather boots, some wearing M&S pyjamas or dressing gowns and others choosing to combine the two themes.
