All women are responsible for their own rapes, duh, which is why a Toronto police officer brilliantly advised the female students of Osgoode Hall Law School in January that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimized.” Yeah, a cop actually offered that as a “safety tip.” In response to this victim-blaming, “sluts and allies” are taking to the streets on April 3 for a SlutMarch. The activists organizing the event say they’re taking the term “slut” that the police officer used in a derogatory manner and re-appropriating as a point of pride, which I love. Canucks can find all the SlutWalk details here; we hope some Frisky readers will attend and tell us about it. Watch out, Toronto — the sluts are coming!

Need a fake girlfriend? Have no fear—a company called Cloud Girlfriend is here to bring you one. All you have to do is tell them a bit about what your perfect girlfriend would look and be like, and they’ll create an online personality for her.

Cloud Girlfriend hasn’t officially launched yet, nor do they divulge exactly how much their service costs, but the site is registering clients. I can think of a few reasons guys would want this—to make another girl jealous or to convince friends and family members that they’re straight if they’re still in the closet—but overall, it’s kinda sad. Especially the fact that this faux girlfriend they’re advertising wears zebra print pumps. Ew. [AOL News] Keep reading »
What sort of man sews a quilt from 58 pairs of women’s panties
? Louis Garrett of Missouri, that’s who. With his hoary beard, tattoo across his forehead, and wife beater tank, he’s a Creepy McCreeperson sent from Central Casting.
Louis only wants women’s panties made from rayon, acetate, and silk for his panty quilt — “no polyester, I don’t want none of them cheap, dollar store, not sexy farm girl panties. I want classy!”
Classy indeed. Just like Louis himself. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
