Occupy Wall St, Hot Chicks, and SlutWalk

Occupy Wall St, Hot Chicks, and SlutWalk Thursday, August 28, 2014, 3:07:39 AM

The idea that Occupy Wall St brings hot chicks, a point this blogger made two days ago now, in response to the photo of an terrifically attractive woman holding up a sign with a quote from Goethe reading “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free,” caused a bit of a reaction around the Internet – most in agreement. Here’s this blogger’s video with the point, and the photo by photographer David Shankbone:

Now, a series of blog posts and videos have surfaced to prove two points: first about the Occupy Wall St. Rally drawing hot chicks, second about the notion that the Occupy Wall St message is vague.

An October 1st blog post by Ed Rants.com (a single-author blog which showed up in Google News!), perfectly captured the argument without even trying. The blog post over there compares the Occupy Wall St protests with SlutWalk and blogs about this exchange with a middle-aged couple:

But while Becky expressed a desire for peaceful unity between SlutWalk and Occupy Wall Street, I began to discover some unanticipated fissures. In search of SlutWalkers who didn’t fit into the demographic of mostly young women, I discovered a middle-aged couple named Murray and Sandy. Both were dressed up for the SlutWalk.

I asked them about Occupy Wall Street.

“I’m very aware of it,” said Murray. “I have a number of friends there. I think the message here is perhaps a little more clear and direct. Over there, it’s a little muddied. But, you know, we definitely wish them luck.”

“I’m not sure why they’re there,” interjected Sandy. “I mean, I know the economy sucks. But I’m not sure what picketing Wall Street is going to, you know, do to help the economy.”

I asked them why they thought the Slutwalk message was clearer than the Occupy Wall Street message.

“Cause this kind of stuff has been going on for as long as I’ve been alive, I think,” answered Sandy, who told me later that she used to work in Wall Street. (She also said later that she approved of Mayor Bloomberg’s parochial statement about bankers struggling to make ends meet.) “That women get accused of inviting rape or whatever by the way that they’re dressed.”

“This is an event that started from an idea with a message,” said Murray, “whereas Occupy Wall Street, I think, just came from…”

Sandy: “General dissatisfaction.”

Murray: “Let’s just go make noise and see what happens.”

That exactly underscores the point. Occupy Wall St will not grow unless and until this problem is hammered out. Perhaps Van Jones involvement – calling for an American Autumn – will help give a single message to Occupy Wall St. A true movement can’t be that just because people are dissatisfied, because at some point they will become dissatisfied with the movement itself.

Also, Occupy Wall St. does draw some amazingly hot women, some willing to take off their bras to make a point about their unhappiness with Capitalism:

And from the videos that appeared at the end of that photo, going topless (because one can’t afford a shirt) is apparently becoming a kind of habit at Occupy Wall St protests.

Stay tuned.
