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?

Prince. Thks for your input. I do, quite often ask questions. They never get answered because they can’t answer them!
As for the assessments, it’s not something I do off the cuff. You’re talking 20yrs of first hand experience and studying to figure this stuff out.
commented 2015-10-07 22:19:25 -0400
Absolutely. We are just seeing one side of the story here from a person – whose goal it was to fuck with people at the event and record it for our entertainment.
commented 2015-10-07 22:11:10 -0400
“Now I ask you. Why was she thrown out? What legal grounds were used other than really stretching the ‘disturbing the peace’ into absurdist realms?”
Marty, I can’t answer that for two reasons.
1) I don’t know what the cops said or did, what laws or regulations governing the event might have been, what permitting was involved, whether charges were actually laid…I simply don’t know.
2) I also don’t know what actually happened on that site. Our “evidence” is a short documentary vignette, shot, scripted, narrated and edited by a person who’s avowed purpose at the event was to provoke a hostile response and record it. I don’t know about you, but that’s not a narrative perspective I’m inclined to trust.

Marty,

To clarify – I meant to say news sources and media sites. Unfortunately part of what you are complaining about is that due to ratings.

What you probably want to see covered in the news, the majority don’t give a shit – they have already changed the channel. So in a world with such brutal competition – including newspapers dying and people moving away from TV to get their news on the internet, it’s all about ensuring that people don’t change the channel or go to another website.

Lauren, kudos to you for exposing the intolerance of the lunatic left. They only believe in rights for themselves. If the newly lunatized Liberal and/or NDP parties ever become the federal government, it will be a socialist tyranny.
commented 2015-10-07 20:53:07 -0400
Marty,

Well that’s the great thing about the world we live in – we have access to countless news and media sites. We can get the story from every possible angle and make up our mind.

Jimmy Da Silva : You missed my point. This isn’t about left vs right. This is about what’s allowed to be reported and what isn’t. You have some eye-opening to do. you got lost in the forest staring at a single group of trees.

ALL of our news is pathetic. It is mainly a bunch North American first world pansies either dodging through politically correct mazes or doing armchair field work without any fact checking. SNN was bad for this too. All I get from it is, well the left says this but,… or well at SNN they have no real journalists, so… or my favorite from Michael Coren : ’Don’t bring up John Tory, or you are going to get us into trouble’. So much for hard news when the CBSA and CRTC are a part of that same cartel permitting only certain news items. Ezra got it right bringing Therebel in this way. His opponents can only target him personally now while leaving all others out of it.

Meanwhile, just about ALL of them are ignoring a very large chunk of critical world events, such as Saudi’s war in Yemen, Pakistan’s war in Balochistan, Turkey’s aiding and abetting ISIS for YEARS, or the fact Russia was the biggest contributor to refugee aid and relief money to Ukraine. You also saw no investigative reports on Russia’s strong ethnic ties to Ukraine thanks largely to Stalin and the old USSR, which saw millions of people relocated to supply the USSR with a Russian majority population in the Ukraine. That’s the root cause of the bad blood and barely a peep of this from any North American outlet.

We are all being made to believe Putin is Lenin reincarnated and the ‘big red menace’ is going to rise and eat us all up. When did we all start forgetting history so easily? Cold War history aside, Chechnya isn’t Russian. Ukraine still hasn’t been invaded, (shut up about Crimea already) and I doubt Syria is going to have is regime changed. Something here is a bit off, don’t you think?

Either North America or the entire world is lying. In this case, I will side with the world. History will likely favour me better after. Just a hunch…
commented 2015-10-07 19:10:03 -0400
In the picture Yiannopoulos is carrying a sign that says “Rape Culture and Harry Potter (are) both fantasy”. Is that not a bit weird? What kind of a fantasy life does he have?

Peter,

I don’t know about you, but I can see woman dressed very sexy or even naked for that matter and I am not thinking – damn, I want to rape that bitch. How about you?
commented 2015-10-07 18:17:26 -0400
Marty,

You are being way overdramatic. There are still fantastic journalists in North American media, who break incredible REAL news as opposed to bullshit that Lauren Southern is covering and do brilliant reporting. And yes, even The Toronto Star has done great work.

The problem is that conservatives right from the get go – think any media source that isn’t giving fellatio to everything conservative – has to be lying. That is a fact. Even when the media was getting everything right about Rob Ford, the morons of Ford Nation felt that journalists – who were doing their job mind you, were being really mean to Rob Ford. They preferred that ass kissing that Joe Warmington and Sun News Network were doing…until eventually The Toronto Sun had to finally admit that Rob Ford is spectacular fuck up and a liar.
commented 2015-10-07 18:11:58 -0400
This display does nothing for feminine equality. It portrays women as mindless sex objects while fueling men’s derision. It encites a division like forbidden fruit. Hey look but don’t touch. I wonder how many cultures would be trusted with this exposure. This sad culture does nothing to expose the crimes against humanity. Quite the opposite
commented 2015-10-07 17:54:11 -0400
Jimmy Da Silva: Right off topic now, aren’t we…

It is an easy formula for me. It’s called ’Don’t trust North American news’.

Almost ALL of it is a lie or at best provides insufficient details. It is comparable to watching people do the bare minimum and not bother to fact check. Also doesn’t help all major media outlets in North America are owned today by a 6 company media cartel. Our ‘conservative’ sources are independent sources and if you were to list all of them, you would find very little actual conservatism to them. Any media outlet is about as truly liberal as you can get, or at least should be. Failing that, they would run out of stuff to report on in a big hurry, or just become a historical documentary agency, which is what National Geographic, BBC and CBC are in a way already. Idiots claiming Funker530 or Liveleak as ‘conservative’ agencies as an example are right out to lunch.

I arrive at my viewpoints in spite of what I am told and shown, not because of it and all of my opinions are formed after logical consideration and not solely because ‘someone says…’.

Someone says we live in an overwhelming rape culture. That person is wrong. This is not Saudi Arabia. Nowhere will you see anyone PUBLICLY in support of rape of any kinds or any legal institutions which enable it without reprisal.

Someone says rape culture does not exist. That person is wrong too. We have rape crisis centres and sell rape whistles for a reason… We also do not encourage women to be out alone at night where heavy drinking might be involved and even have self-defense classes specifically for women. Gee I wonder why that is…

Our western ‘Rape Culture’ is in fact a counter-culture which manifests within organized crime and other gang cultures. Pretending it isn’t there won’t make it go away either. Lauren, show that’ There is no Rape Culture’ sign to any vice cop and they will tell you where to shove that ‘no rape culture’ sign within 10 seconds! If not, they are a shitty cop!

Hyacinth,

I know what you mean – when you read The Rebel comments section long enough, you can’t help think that most people are drinking the same batshit crazy Kool-Aid, like some sort of cult.

Reading through this thread, it reads as if Terry and Jimmy are the same person simply typing through different sign-ins, either that or they are drinking from the same sippy cup.

Terry. Public disruption = disturbing the peace.

It is already a crime, and I feel we should leave it. Now answer me this honestly. I hate watching these vids, but I sat through this one for you. It hurts my humanity too much to watch Lauren have a point, but spectacularly fail at making it each time by adhering to an inaccurate absolute: ‘There is no rape culture’. That makes her as bad as the radicalized feminists she has an issue with.

Now back on topic. I watched Lauren ask some odd questions, but break no laws. I watched her get assaulted several times… and watched authorities DO NOTHING!

Now I ask you. Why was she thrown out? What legal grounds were used other than really stretching the ‘disturbing the peace’ into absurdist realms?

So more like Darth Vader?

I love that like a lot of stupid conservatives, Lauren brings up Planned Parenthood sells baby parts. Like Carly Firoina also brought up in the Republican debates. This has been repeatedly debunked by various media sources. Even Fox News’ Chris Wallace called Firoina a liar – for all you conservatives that only trust conservatives sources.

I have to ask – are you really that fucking stupid Lauren?

Jimmy:

Thanks for the kind comment. And don’t worry, I don’t take the anger too seriously. Partly it’s because I think some of our friends here aren’t actually talking to you or to me, but to the Phantom Lefty who haunts their nightmares – you know, that gay bolshevik treehugging gun-banning pseudo-intellectual latte-drinking Muslim Aboriginal NDP/Liberal/Green/Bloc-voting Tesla-driving oil-hating slutwalking tax-raising freedom-loathing Obama-voting creep that’s out to take their rifles, force them to learn french, install catalytic converters on their vehicles, and force them all into same sex marriages. They’ve somehow gotten us mixed up with that guy.
