0 Comments

It’s not the slickest website, but we love the idea of¬†RockTheSlutVote.com¬†– embracing the insult that’s meant to dismiss, discredit and silence “uppity” women in order to increase voter turn-out for political candidates who respect women’s rights.

“How come there are so many movies about a teenage boy who wants to have sex and this is the only one about a teenage girl who wants to have sex?” Thank you!
