On Thursday, I wrote about SlutWalkDC, an event in which participants are encouraged to dress like ‘sluts’ to proclaim to the world they should be able to dress and act how they want (no matter how promiscuously), without facing any consequences. Organizers insisted the march was meant to raise awareness for victims of sexual assault, but after witnessing the Saturday spectacle, it seemed more like a self-righteous parade that ignored any sense of personal responsibility. A few girls even showed up topless, claiming that they’re ‘still not asking for it.’

Here are just 10 of the strangest signs participants proudly waved:

There were the artsy ones.

Some were Disney-themed.

Then Ryan Gosling made an appearance.

Grumpy Cat was not impressed.

Some were hard to miss.

Some signs weren't on poster board.

Hey, at least some were patriotic.

Stay classy, ladies.
