this guy pulled out his dick in front of like 5 billion feminist protestors holy shit

Some context for the idiots claiming the women are overreacting:
This occurred at a Slut Walk. For those not familiar with it, the Slut Walk is basically a peaceful protest seeking to eliminate the rape apologism so prevalent in society. The basis is that no woman is “asking for it,” with “it” being rape. It’s not a feminist protest; it’s a human rights protest.
Many of the protesters, as you can probably imagine, have dealt with sexual harassment or rape in their own lives. Many of them have structured their daily activities to avoid being raped. The gathering is supposed to be a place for them to feel empowered and able to recover in the company of those who understand what they’ve been through or who will not blame them.
Nobody at a Slut Walk will tell a survivor that it’s her fault. They will not ask what she was wearing to provoke her attacker. Nobody will say she had too much to drink. Nobody will tell the men in the group that they are inherently rapists themselves, and nobody will tell a male survivor that his experience “wasn’t really rape.”
Then, this fellow comes along. He sees this gathering of survivors and their supporters, and to him, it’s a joke. He sees feminazis. He sees girls who are taking “a bit of fun” too seriously. And what does he do? He exposes himself to this group of survivors and supporters - some of whom are, in fact, underage.
He sexually harasses literally hundreds of women in one act. Aside from public indecency, there was cruel intent in his actions. He wanted to make them uncomfortable. He wanted to “put them in their place.” Other photos from this event show him flipping the protesters off and laughing at their anger.
And there are still people defending his actions. There are those who still feel like these women were asking for itand that they deserved to be harassed for trying to claim they weren’t. There are those who feel that women should be taught a lesson this way, and they applaud this man’s actions.
So no, he didn’t pull out his dick in front of feminist protesters. He harassed dozens - if not hundreds - of rape survivors. The reaction to his actions alone outline the purpose of the Slut Walk.
For those of you still doubting whether what he did was wrong (and I do wonder if there’s something wrong with you, if you have doubts), let me give you an analogous situation. Imagine a gathering of black civil rights activists. Imagine Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and all their colleagues gathered together to demonstrate that being black did not make them lesser people. That being black and living in the South did not mean they were “asking” to be the target of hate crimes.
And at this gathering, a white man decides he should teach them a lesson by pointedly hanging a noose from the nearest tree and laughing at their anger. And other white men, laughing along with him, commend him for taking these activists down a peg.
That’s what happened here. It’s not an “OMG, I can’t believe he did that!” moment. It’s an “OMG, there are people who think this is okay” moment. And the fact is, it’s not. It never will be. And that’s the take home message of this ridiculous rant I’ve written up.

And this is why we still need feminism.

this made me cry holy shit

That was hands down one of the most well-written and beautiful responses I have had the pleasure to read. Thank you

Incorrect! Try again next time friend! You almost got it right but you completely took away any justice you did with that rant at the end. 

The guy’s an asshole for sure, but in your little rant towards the end you used an analogy with a noose representing the penis. 

That is in face grossly sexist. If the point of the slut walk is to prove that it’s not women’s fault for rape etc etc then flashing a dick is an exaggeration of that line of thought. That thought being that the body is natural and beautiful and not something that should be categorized as purely sexual. It may be offensive in this specific case and he did it as a very stupid prank, it isn’t a weapon and it shouldn’t be compared to a noose…

It’s a dick. It doesn’t kill people and it is in no way similar to a tool used to remind slaves of years of slavery. 

So why you may be correct that the dude’s a prick, and he probably did deserve it for being a huge asshole, you are sexist if you believe that a penis is not something to be praised just as much as any other body part. You sounded great until the analogy. But you clearly have issues with the penis. It is a body part and as true feminists know, a natural and wonderful thing just as every aspect of the female and male body. Equality sure is hard these days. 

Oh, and if it isn’t already evident, I’m not sexist. I’m sure there’ll be a good number of people that will try to say I am (through no logical reasoning) but I am in fact against both rape and sexism in any way.
