    Hi, I just thought I’d let you know that under the FAQ section, the link to the laws regarding rape victims doesn’t work. Apparently, the info isn’t at that url anymore. Could you change it? Thanks

      Hi Esther, thanks for alerting us about that. Not sure if you have heard, but the Ministry of Law plans to repeal that section.

      More info here: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/singaporelocalnews/view/1167548/1/.html

      It is great cause to celebrate w/ SlutWalkSG this Sunday. Changes may be effected on the legislative level, but there is still a lot on the societal level and from the ground up that we need to raise awareness about and reach out to. SlutWalk Singapore is just the beginning.

        yeah with the repeal in effect,is this event even necessary?We should now be worried if any black sheeps among women would try to abuse this change of law and manipulate others.The judge would really need to be discerning and good with evidences so as not to end up creating more victims on either end.

        Plus,i’d like to see such a repeal be done to help potential male victims of the same crime.Too much assumptions on female being victims would dilute efforts made to give redress attention to all.Many other laws also need repealing but havent been done,just because they dont really benefit feminists’ cause,though in all fairness they should.

    Goodness,do singaporeans have nothing better to do than to be part of something which disgraces themselves?Have the new generation become so boliao?

      @Aeroster

      Have you even read the About page etc? Contrary to what it’s name suggests, SlutWalk Singapore is NOT about Singaporean girls becoming sluts. SlutWalk Toronto was started because people wanted to protest against the perception that girls who are raped could have prevented it by wearing less revealing clothes, flirting less or basically being less “slutty”. Although SlutWalk Toronto is also about girls reclaiming the word “slut” and sexual liberation, this is not the case in Singapore. If you read information on the events on the pages of this website, you’ll realise that nothing suggests the event is about girls dressing skimpily. It’s about protesting against discrimination against the victim instead of the criminal. It’s about saying “Don’t rape” instead of “Don’t GET raped”. Rape is usually more about power than sexual attraction.

      So no, this event is not something that is disgraceful. It’s about an important issue, and the new generation is NOT “boliao”, as you put it.

      Here are some quotes from the About page:
      “our ultimate goal is not to reclaim the word (slut)”
      “One does not need to identify as ‘slut’ to be a part of SlutWalk. We are asking you to join us for SlutWalk, to make a unified statement about sexual assault and victims’ rights and to demand respect for all.”
      “SlutWalk Singapore is asking you to COME AS YOU ARE — whether in t-shirt and jeans, in fishnets, in a sari, in a jacket, or in a tudung.”

        then you should not be using the same name isn’t it? its contradictory and it brings the audience to the same meaning of what happened in Toronto. That is why so many negativity from the social perception. You may be right that you are fighting the cause against raping. but the bigger picture is a conservative yet to be mature society is something which is not acceptable. ladies in singapore are well respected everywhere in the world. remember when our then prime minister symbolizes singapore airlines with local girls?
        i am not local and i had experienced the local arena ever since. through the change of times, i realized that local girls are getting more and more daring. which is good. individual empowerment. yes that is good. but when emotional strikes, are there balances?
        please ponder again about the name for this cause.

        Still,the kind of name u put forth is giving the wrong idea.And the title speaks much for everything,cos its what people will read first.There are better ways to oppose rape than to do this.If u give the wrong direction right from the beginning,how do u expect it to work well?u should be launching an antislut movement instead.Asking girls to dress right will not hurt either,since it shows u are respecting ur surroundings
        .As u feminists so enjoy putting it,it isnt about the dressing but power.so why did u bring that up to me when i havent even mentioned it?Prevention is always better than cure,so if u can prevent urself not getting raped,then why not?Like how u prevent getting tangled with all other forms of criminals too.If they listen to u,they wouldnt be called criminals would they?So ur message will only invite derides from them,not stem the problem.
        Indecent dressing might not provoke rape but it will surely invite other stuff,like molest,groping and taking of lewd photos.Is it not a feminists’ responsibility to advise girls to prevent this,especially in an age where girls seem to find indulgence in dressing in deplorable manner?(just look around u,or watch the noose episode on ninja auntie)

        Few movements will have a goal contrary to their name.Who the heck would put forth the wrong idea right from day one?There is a difference between being creative about the name and being totally ridiculous.

        The homepage is also too flashy with pictures and words to make it look serious

    STUPID MOVEMENT JUST LIKE LGBT 2… JEW VERSION OF HUMAN RIGHT.

  8. December 2, 2011 4:14 PM

    Regarding the event on Sunday 4th December…
    I have read at the About page that LGBT, QABC and DEFG are welcome, although I don’t know what these abbreviations mean. Anyway, I was just wondering if people like us – MCP – are also welcome?
    Me and my friends, we belong to the MCP movement. We love sluts, we respect sluts and we would like to contribute to the promotion of the slut movement in Singapore. Should we come?

    I wish Singaporeans would not ape the west.
    And no matter how you put it, this is so sorry and slutty.

      Quite true.Why call it slut rather than antirape,or anticrime?

    In another blog reporting about this,i received a slew of irrelevant patronising replies after posting my views.You can’t blame people like me for having a low opinion of the cause if supporters wrote such nonsense.I’m glad to see no flaming here,but still the very name of such a walk bears much consideration.And rape isn’t the only crime happening.We have gang murders on the rise in recent days.

    we should have a gaywalk,for men to assert that they can wear what they want without ANY prejudice.

    Hi, when will you be staging the next Slutwalk?

    OMG GET OVER ABOUT WHAT THIS EVENT IS CALLED. WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT IS THE CAUSE AND MESSAGE IT IS TRYING TO PUSH FORTH; which is definitely good. Besides, its not about prevention or cure. Its about changing mindsets – and on that, I think it is important to start changing the perspectives that we have currently which is highly patriarchal! Because patriarchy makes us view the word slut as a negative connotation; when in fact we can change the implicit meaning of it to empowerment and freedom. THATS THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS WALK. CHANGING THE CURRENT PERCEPTIONS BEHIND THE ISSUE OF RAPE. Stop acting like a coward and be daring to challenge this current system. though it may be an arduous task to completely transform patriarchal mindsets, but it has got to start somewhere. & thats what this walk all about. CAPITAL SLUTwalk FTW!
