End the Vancouver Slutwalk!

This petition had 1,760 supporters

Recently, Libertarian Candidate Lauren Southern participated in the Vancouver Slutwalk, offering her opinion on rape culture, in that she holds the opinion that it does not exist.

Instead of engaging in the discussion, participants of the Slutwalk started a petition to have Lauren removed as a Libertarian candidate for her riding. (Obviously not realizing that the Libertarian Party values freedom of speech and opinion, and would go against the very principles of their party to remove her as candidate.)

The organizers of the Slutwalk insist on rhetoric of, in some cases, extreme hatred of men, and assert that we live in a "Rape Culture" (a claim debunked by the leading advocacy group for rape and incest survivors in North America, RAINN.)

They insist that men should be taught not to rape, as if they aren't already aware, and rely on anecdotal and oftentimes faulty evidence.

So this petition is for those among us who would like to see the Slutwalk come to an end, not to rob the protesters of their rights to speak, but to force them to address the statistics and be held accountable for spreading often false, misleading or entirely fabricated statistics to prove their point.

Sign, and let your voices be heard.
