I love trying outside of the box ideas to get folks excited about voting. This idea however, the #ThisSlutVotes campaign, was very much inside of the box — Amber Rose’s @myslutbox that is.
Every single July Slut Box will have a voter registration from in them, courtesy of HeadCount.
There obviously is a lot of humor in this. But this is far more than just a joke. All of us have power to make an impact in our society. And “Slut” for so long has been used as a way of robbing people (especially women) of power, of dehumanizing them, stealing their agency. But sluts don’t have to be weak. JFK was one of America’s biggest sluts and he became president.
Lots of women and queer activists have worked very hard to take that word back. Because regardless of one’s sexual promiscuity, or outfit, or attitude, we all deserve to feel ownership of our body. And in turn, of our nation.
Recently our federal government, Democrats and Republicans in a rare show of bipartisanship, teamed up to rob sex workers of safe avenues for them to do their jobs. We likely will end this year with a Supreme Court stacked against a woman’s right to make choices about her own body. And we have gestapo-light police forces arresting a woman suing our president, for being touched by said undercover cops, solely to intimidate her. Well now more than ever we need to fight for what we believe in.
This is an absurd picture I took of myself. But hopefully it got you to read all of that, and will get you to fight against the injustices of how we police bodies (especially female and queer bodies) in America, before it reaches the point of no return.
