A slutwalk in Brazil known as the “Marcha das vadias” turned ugly recently, when an unknown man began aggravating the crowd by exposing his penis to thousands of angry feminists. The footage, captured by an unknown person and uploaded to youtube, shows an unidentified man gesturing at thousands of cheering and hooting protesters. They begin throwing rubbish at him and advancing upon him. Undeterred, the man appears to expose his genitals to the crowd. Shortly after this, the man is forced to flee as the angry crowd chase him. He appears to get away unharmed.
You can watch the footage for yourself here, the footage is moderately nsfw, as it may contain misogynist genitals:
Slutwalk, if you’ll recall, is a movement that began in Canada in 2011 in response to comments made by a Toronto police officer, who suggested women could reduce their chances of being sexually assaulted if they refrained from “dressing like sluts.”
Outraged, feminists took to the streets in droves, some of them topless to protest the idea that dressing a certain way might provoke a certain unwanted reaction. That if people were to become overwhelmed with a certain type of emotion at the sight of naked flesh, it was their responsibility to control it, not for the other person to alter how they dress or behave. So how did this crowd respond when they were confronted by a naked penis? They turned on him like an angry mob.
By all accounts, it looked like this man violated the law by exposing his genitals, in much the same way protesters in other parts of the world have violated public decency laws at other slutwalk protests. No doubt this won’t be the end of the matter and his identity may very well be exposed by outraged feminists and their allies. If I could offer any advice to this unknown man it’d be this: you should be very careful about how you act and how much skin you expose in public. You may attract the wrong kind of attention.
