Children? Slut walk? This is VERY inappropriate! The term slut isn't a nice one children need to hear.

I had an initial bad reaction .... BUT I GET IT! It is kinda important. The name may have not worked, but the issue that keeps the cycle of victims being unable to get justice STILL remains "SHE WAS DRESSED LIKE SHE WANTED IT." Good message ..... bad "naming' ..... took effort for me to read what it was (put me down as caring but LAZY) :)
