ed: Tue, Jul 21,am 5 Time to read: about 3 minutes. Ina year-old Canadian high school student, Rehtaeh Parsons, killed herself after being gang-raped by her classmates and subsequently bullied, shamed and blamed by her peers.

Parsons is only one of the many teenage girls who have attempted or considered suicide after being unable to escape sexual bullying both in online platforms and in Palo alto slut. The film emerged as part of the UnSlut Projectan organization founded by Emily Lindinwho was sexually bullied during middle school after her boyfriend and his friends spread false rumors about her being a "slut. Her diary entries illustrated the emotional turmoil caused by sexual shaming, turmoil which in Lindin's case led her to consider suicide at the age of A huge of girls and women who read Lindin's diary entries reached out to her, expressing that they wanted Palo alto slut share their similar stories as well, Lindin said, and this is how the project expanded.

Lindin defines slut shaming as "implying that a girl or woman should feel inferior or guilty for her real or perceived sexual behavior. So that's where 'unslut' comes from -- undoing everything that's packed into it and all the assumptions that allow that word to continue to make sense as an insult. A special sneak peek from the documentary will be screened on Wednesday, July 22, at 6 p. This will be an almost-complete version of the documentary, lacking only three minutes of animation that is intended to portray potentially triggering scenes such as rape or suicide. The screening of the minute documentary will be followed by a panel discussion.

According to Lindin, what is unique about the Palo Alto event is that it will allow for an casual conversation more intimate than that at a film festival or premiere. At this "community get-together," viewers will have a chance to hang out with Lindin and share any questions or comments they might have about the UnSlut project.

There's something about this that doesn't add up. The lead describes an incident that almost everyone would find unjust, i. But then the a bit of bait-and-switch seems to happen. Rather than staying on protecting victims of rape and bullying, the focus shifts to opposing "feeling inferior or guilty for [one's] real or perceived sexual behavior.

Like the behavior of the classmates who raped Ms. Maybe we and our Canadian neighbors could make a start by taking a good hard look at the hypersexualized adult culture that we've developed and have carelessly allowed to seep down to younger and younger children, such that Ms. Parsons' young attackers could even conceive of their crime, and the equally outrageous way they Palo alto slut their victim to her death. Shaming has its place in human society; it always has, and always will.

Adults should see that it gets pointed at the perpetrators, not the victims. Lindin should stay on that target. However, the concept of shaming a person when HE or she has broken cultural and moral norms is not necessarily in itself a bad thing.

Let me be more specific. Prior to the 60's having out of wedlock was a shameful event. And the families had to step up to providing the care and support. Else the baby was given up for adoption. By sometime in the 70's this had changed. NOTE - I am not talking about a grown, mature single woman who decides to have a baby. The result is either: an unwanted child likely raised in poverty even on government assistance, having to be given up for adoption, or an unnecessary abortion.

It has been a staple of the Big Three religion systems since thebook of Genesis. As a mother raising a tween daughter, I am sympathetic to this film. When I got to the word "bully," however, I had to stop and wonder about some shame-less sexual behavior that has seemed like bullying. I live in an apartment complex where you would not expect to hear residents having loud sex at unexpected times of day, like when young children are playing nearby and when families are gathered together.

Here, there was a female who was so loud you could hear her from the next building. Although she seemed sexually liberated, she also seemed to be aggressively blasting her sexuality to everyone in the vicinity. At the core of bullying is the feeling of contempt, and it's hard not to wonder if she felt contempt for everyone living around her--perhaps especially towards families with young children who had to suddenly deal with the situation every time it occurred.

The woman, herself, did not appear to have children.

The area of the complex did not seem family friendly in the way that a certain area of a high school might not seem safe when it's a bully's stomping ground. A little dose of shame, rather than shamelessness, might have spared residents from that woman's sexual bullying.
