“This is What I was Wearing (Tell Me I Asked for It, I Dare You)” is the slogan that was originally seen on a sign held by a feminist activist at the 2011 SlutWalk in New York City. Online, both the slogan and the photograph of the sign have been parodied through image macros and photoshopped images.
On October 3rd, 2011, a photograph of a casually attired young male protester with a sign which revealed the outfit was the same one he was wearing when he was raped was posted the official SlutWalk NYC Tumblr. The photo was taken that day at the SlutWalkprotest held in Union Square against victim-blaming, slut shaming and rape culture. According to a post on The Slut Project, the image was captured by photographer Francesa June. Though its original post has been deleted, the photo has more than 35,000 notes on Tumblr as of May 2013.
[image: A teenaged boy at Slutwalk NYC. He has short pink hair and is wearing jeans and baggy grey tshirt. His jeans are ripped at the knee, but are otherwise unremarkable, and his tshirt has some sort of maroon logo. He is looking directly at the camera, and holding a large white sign. His sign reads: THIS IS WHAT I WAS WEARING. TELL ME I ASKED FOR IT. I DARE YOU.]
By January 2012, the photo had gone viral on several humor sites, Google Plus and even school newspapers. On January 31st, the image was submitted to Reddit’s /r/Pics  for the first time, gaining more than 6,997 upvotes and 1,624 comments prior to being archived. On January 10th, Tumblr user spiffyblargh shared a photoshopped version resembling the cover art of Deus Ex: Human Revolution that he had found in a thread on 4chan’s /v/ (video games).
In March 2012, another edited version of the photo featuring the avatar of the Gorilla Munch mascot and a reference to “That Really Rustled My Jimmies” began to circulate on 4chan and Tumblr (shown above, right). By May, the sign had been parodied across multiple 4chan boards, most notably on /tg/(traditional games) /a/ (anime and manga) and /tv/ (television and film). Other variations have since popped up on Reddit and Quickmeme.
