Amber Rose Recaps ‘SlutWalk’ Event
By Amber B
Following her much-talked about ‘SlutWalk,’ Amber Rose fills in for Larry King on the Emmy nominated series Larry King Now to guest-host a panel discussion on sexual violence, slut shaming and feminism. Panelists include Orange is the New Black and How to Get Away with Murder star Matt McGorry, broadway singer and former American Idol contestant Frenchie Davis, female sexual medicine specialist, Dr. Jennifer Berman and Professor Juliet Williams.
“Sexual assault, or rape, is not an act of sex. It’s an act of anger and violence so sex doesn’t have anything to do with it. How we dress and how we look doesn’t matter in that circumstance.” Dr. Jennifer Berman speaks on sexual assault and the perception of it in our culture.
Guest-hosting a Larry King Now panel on several issues including slut shaming, Amber Rose recalls the hateful comments she and Blac Chyna received on social media after they posted a twerking video in an Uber enroute to the MTV Video Music Awards in August and combats it saying, “I think society does teach us as a culture that if you are sexy than you can’t be smart or if you do dress sexy or if you’re confident in your sexuality that you are asking for it.” (clip below)
Frenchie Davis responds saying, “I think something that was very telling was you started talking about how we have to continue to talk to women about how they conduct themselves when they’re out in public, but why are we not having the same conversations with men? About how they conduct themselves publicly because you can’t take the responsibility away from them. How I dress has no bearing whatsoever on your inability to control yourself and I think we have to be really clear on that.”
