Warehouse Stationery > The All Blacks > White Ribbon

Filed under: General — Equality @ 1:57 pm

Today I noticed that the Warehouse Stationery store in Palmerston North has at least one White-Ribbon poster at the check-out. I did not check every till, but it was there prominently placed at the one I did go through. The sadness was increased to see the All-Blacks were featured on this poster. Clearly the All-Blacks will do whatever for money, just as Warehouse stationery will. They are not my heroes and from now on will never get my support. I think it right out of order for a trader to think it okay to negatively judge half their customers on account of gender, simply because its popular to do so. If they had any merit at all, they should acquaint themselves with reputable stats about violence and abuse – and not those from gender biased groups such as Women’s Affairs; Women’s refuge; the Police [they wear white-ribbons] and all the other ignorant and shameful entities.
I confronted the shop assistant and he said that while Ribbon was about “Domestic violence”. He seemed to be arguing that violence done by women is not “Domestic Violence”. IDIOT!
I recommend you choose who you spend your money with.

    “I recommend you choose who you spend your money with.” Sadly, this is war, and that is EXACTLY how you/I win. Boycott companies, raise awareness about experiences. This is clearly discrimination and is violating human rights.

    Sad, because that store has good deals although its competitive edge is fading. I will still take advantage of its service but I will express my view on each occasion that I see any White Fibbin poster there. I guess it’s difficult for any shop to turn away the misguided White Fibbers when they come to ask if a poster could be displayed. It seems like such a good cause, until you think about it. Most people don’t think much.
