WATCH: Why feminists kicked me out of a Slut Walk in Los Angeles

Lauren SouthernArchive

This weekend, Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos and I were thrown out of the Amber Rose Slut Walk in Los Angeles by the LAPD.

Despite the Left’s professed hatred for the bigoted, patriarchal, racist police, they had no problem using them to eject a woman and a gay man who disagreed with their kooky theories about how women are an oppressed class in America.

It was a perfect display of the kind of censorship encouraged by modern feminism.

Security was called after I asked actress and model Amber Rose if she believed in rape culture. Upon hearing a question that was not in line with the Slut Walk’s official narrative, organizers went into panic mode.

Eventually, the police came to handle this horrifying case of wrongthink. They claimed we weren’t allowed to film or record the event, despite us being surrounded by self-proclaimed “sluts” filming and taking photographs, who were allowed to continue undisturbed. We clearly garnered the organizers’ attention merely for asking the wrong questions.

The Slut Walk had good reasons to avoid tough questions. With the horrendous turn-out -- the organisers predicted thousands; less than 300 showed up -- lack of clothes, and men who had shown up to “only see tits” (their words) it only took a small amount of objectivity to see the flaws of the event.

The organisers grasped at any excuse to stop our coverage. When Yiannopoulos asked to record the event with his phone, as many other attendees were doing, the flustered organizer first agreed, then disagreed, then told us the police were on the way and that we were about to be arrested.

The organizer and security had no interest in working out a solution where we could stay and participate. They simply wanted us out of there.

Some of the attendees were just as intolerant as the organizers. After just one interview, I attracted a shadow: an angry activist from the pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood, who would interrupt me mid-interview to warn participants that I was asking “inappropriate” and “wrong” questions. As it happens, I’m undecided on the abortion debate, but he still found my questions threatening enough to chase me around the event and butt into interviews.

As we waited for the police to arrive, Yiannopoulos and I decided to test the tolerance of attendees by challenging their opinions. We stood in the square holding two protest signs, both of which quickly enraged the Slut Walkers. Yiannopoulos’ sign, which read “Rape Culture and Harry Potter… Both Fantasy,” was snatched and ripped up by an attendee. My sign, which read “Regret is not Rape” also came under attack, but we managed to salvage it after a game of tug-of-war with the same activist.

I suspect the organisers would have cooked up a spurious excuse to eject us regardless of whether we were filming. From the organisers to the attendees, it was clear that the Slut Walkers were furious about our attendance. No-one was interested in hearing the other side despite us being entirely peaceful and reasonable. Like zealots throughout history, they believe their opinions are cardinal truths that are not up for debate.

Ironically, the voices they decided to silence were those of a woman and a gay man. Despite the authoritarian Left’s determination to use the female and gay identities as a battering ram against their opponents, it’s clear that they have no interest in the increasing number of women and minorities who don’t buy into their narratives.

The organiser who called the cops on us wore a shirt bearing the slogan “Vote For Women” but I suspect she only meant women who agree with her. I’m running as a candidate in this month’s Parliamentary elections. Would she ever vote for me? Somehow, I doubt it.

Feminism is not an inclusive movement. Your options are assimilate or be censored. After my first Vancouver Slut Walk, many believed I had simply happened across a few radicals, but their zealotry is being replicated all over the western world.

Amber Rose’s was the third Slut Walk I’ve covered, and the “sluts” continue to display the same intolerance for others’ opinions as they did in Vancouver. Although we may laugh, these are not a few radicals, and this is not a dead horse. Feminism is being pushed and supported from all angles, commercially and politically. Even the police are on the side of feminist censorship.

Yet ordinary people simply don’t agree that there is a vast male conspiracy out there thwarting and harming women at every turn.

Not even women are buying it: fewer than one in five women in America identifies as a feminist. Can you blame the other four fifths?

I wish Lauren would quit being a patsy for Saudi billionaires-funded anti-feminists like Zunera Ishaq who also blame rape victims for inviting attack and who are trying to change our law to make women responsible for rape for not covering our bodies, for driving, for seeking education, for going out unescorted without a man, etc. Rape culture is growing in the west commensurate with immigration and adding fuel to the already threatening misogynist fire of shariah helps democracy not one whit. It is, in fact, a form of treason, a betrayal of freedom.

But I guess Lauren needs to make a living. Like all rats that betray their kind. Like Zunera Ishaq.

Slut walk looks like a bunch of mentally deficient sluts parading around exposing themselves with no regard for anyone. Don’t think any of this is catching on and will fizzle away shortly.

However, I am curious Glenn, what you meant by the following: “Erin has found herself in the Alice through the looking glass world of academic feminism.”
commented 2015-10-09 00:17:54 -0400
For the sake of trying to get back on topic, I won’t even bother responding to some of the comments that have been directed towards me, or any of the other commenters who dared to offer a critical perspective on this video.
Lauren attended (I presume) because she had a theory, and she was attempting to gather empirical evidence in support of her theory. That theory, I think, is less about whether there is any so-called “rape culture”, for example, and more about questioning whether or not the people who who run around shrieking that rape culture does indeed exist really have any idea what they’re talking about. I would argue that she was simply trying to expose these same people, who claim to want open, peaceful dialogue, as close-minded zealots who refuse to acknowledge the existence of other points of view different from their own, let alone actually debate with them, in a free and open public space, no less. To me, she’s trying to illustrate that modern proponents of what passes for “feminism” today, simply can’t stand up when subjected to academic criticism (for what that’s worth today), or any other form of rigorous scrutiny.

You need to understand something about me – I have a sense of humor, so I may make funny or sarcastic comments in our back and forth banter.

I don’t LOOOOOVE Muslims so much and the question was ridiculous in the first place and worthy of being mocked.

Your ass has been handed to you repeatedly, which is the very reason why you have had numerous meltdowns on here and you know that.

I don’t need to tell you why it’s OK – because the media doesn’t ignore it. You do know that most of the time, The Rebel is simply commenting on news that OTHER media sources have covered. There is no actual breaking news here.

“nobody other that you two gives a shit about what you are demanding.”
Glenn, I think you must you must be getting me mixed with someone else again. What on earth do you think I’m “demanding”??
commented 2015-10-08 01:59:39 -0400
Jimmy. There you go with your ridicule. You can’t answer the questions so you ridicule (you forgot to mention Sarah Palin). My ass has never been handed to me by you or your pal Terry – ‘cept in your dreams!! If getting along is the key, why don’t you get along with me instead of me with you? Did you think that stupid psychology would work on me?
You pick on Ezra for the tiniest of things, but say nothing about the MSM completely ignoring issues. And of course, we don’t have those previous discussions in front of us. Something you seek to take advantage of. But you know as well as I do I’ve called you on that and you had no answers!!
Now, why don’t you tell us why it’s ok for the MSM to ignore all the videos of “refugees” tearing up every country they go to? Or why they refuse to report on the stark increase in rape wherever they land? (Both have been reported here).

Jay ….that is really a silly question……for some reason the Liberals insist on believing that lesbians with malignant penis envy speak for women collectively…..and use those points as guidelines of qualification to mandarine position…..Lauren would be seen by the Liberals as a traitor to her gender and a hetero normative heterocentric heterosexist schill and auntie Thomasina to the evil patriarchy….which must be overthrowl Party ….for as much as it my cost….and perennially and persistently…..as only the most obsessed control freaks could possibly muster…….YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED INTO THE BORG RESISTANCE IS FUTILE…..level of overbearing assertion…..
commented 2015-10-08 01:22:42 -0400
So, Glenn, nutbar or not she is not likely to be appointed by the Liberals to a policy advisory position.
commented 2015-10-08 01:10:31 -0400

I meant REAL questions. Not retarded ones. You think asking me why I LOOOOOVE Muslims so much is a real question? Maybe in your world – but it my world, it deserves to be mocked.

I don’t have higher standards for Ezra. In fact, I have pretty low expectations for Ezra and most of the time he can’t even meet that.

If getting along isn’t the objective for you, then you have no reason to complain every time you get your ass handed to you – you know going in that if you fuck with the bull, you get the horns. And yet you have incessantly cried like a baby on here about the big mean liberals. Maybe getting along should be your objective.
commented 2015-10-08 01:09:49 -0400
Apparently she is running….though that is really a course project for her political science degree….as a LIBERTARIAN…..I was invited to do that…..but holy smoke….let’s face it…..libertarians are by their nature a veritable herd of cats subject to the will of no control freak whomsoever……so who…pray tell could you ever appoint to be the “party whip”……..:-)
commented 2015-10-08 01:04:09 -0400
Not that I know of Jay…..:-)
commented 2015-10-08 01:00:21 -0400
Glenn, has Lauren Southern ever been appointed by the Liberal Party to anything? She does not say so in her piece.
commented 2015-10-08 00:55:06 -0400
Jimmy. You don’t give me any answers. The last “answer” you gave me, when I asked why you LOOOOOVE Muslims so much, was to simply hurl insults and mention Sarah Palin.
Trying to get along with Liberals? You’re trying to imply that getting along is the objective, and if I’m not on board I’m a bad person. Sorry, that stupid psychology doesn’t work on me!
Recently I asked why you have such higher standards for Ezra than the CBC. Do you have an answer yet?
commented 2015-10-08 00:49:38 -0400
Alright Jay…..I will turn over my cards in turn……polker style…you have called my bluff….

In the big picture…this event don’t mean shit…….except that the Liberal Party sees fit to make mandarin appointments to POLICY advisory positions…..selecting the sort of NUTBARS…..we are talking about here
commented 2015-10-08 00:43:59 -0400
I would be curious to know if anyone on here thinks Lauren Southern did something that warrants enthusiastic support.
commented 2015-10-08 00:41:20 -0400
I would come more to the story to see what it is about and what went on. Only then I might support or not support the activist.
I just can’t figure out why Lauren Southern was at the rally in L.A. . It seems a long way to go to make a lame statement at a mediocre event.
commented 2015-10-08 00:39:05 -0400
Glenn, did you say “If you did not come here to support Lauren… it would be reasonable to assume that you do not enthusiastically support her…”?
commented 2015-10-08 00:33:34 -0400
Just to make it clear to any and all concerned…..If you didn’t come here to support Lauren…..it is reasonable…..to assume..in light of the pattern of whatyou and your likeminded ….ummmm….nah I just got to say it……trolls ………have said…..it would be reasonable to assume that you do not enthusiastically support her………

When did that happen?

Then why….pray tell were you among those trying to undermine her?
commented 2015-10-07 23:12:58 -0400

No – Erin is one of the very few reasonable and sensible conservatives here – who actually feels that opposing views are important and debate is a good thing as opposed to the conservative bubble that most of you are striving for.

You might need another 20 years. Your questions are always answer – you just don’t like the answers that you get. Don’t act like you are trying to get along with liberals.

If I ever meet the techy at Apple who designed the software that hovers over every keystroke I type…..I will kick his nuts up to where he can suck them and do the time with my head held high….sorry for the mashed words in previous posts
commented 2015-10-07 22:40:17 -0400
Jimmy and Terry….nobody other that you two gives a shit about what you are demanding……The yrue nature of this event is the simple fact that a portion of the population has not outgrown an adolescent craving for attention….and if you shot back at me that Erin is equally guilty…..well I suppose you are right.

But all of that notwithstanding……Erin has found herself in the Alice through the looking glass world of academic feminism..

And me….and certainly the readership of all who make her videos viral…..admire her courage….

So other than “attention whoring” …….what is it you are accusing Lauren of……that you honsetly think thatme or any other reader of this forum would give a shit about?

I light of how much of this resource you have seen fit to commandeer…..that is a reasonable inquiry
