Comment on the White Ribbon Campaign
There has been some debate on the White Ribbon Campaign’s Facebook page under a picture of a woman with bullet holes all around her face and the words “Killing me softly with his words”, and elsewhere. The nice white ribbon people have now removed my comments and seem to have blocked me from further input.
As everyone here knows, I don’t write abusively and censoring my comments is simply evading rather than addressing worthy challenges. My last comments involved some variations of the type of campaign they are running, as follows:
E hoa bro, show you’re against burglaries of white people’s houses
Sisters, show you’re against false allegations towards men in the Family Court
(1935) Jews, show you’re against financial exploitation of Germans
Homosexuals, show you’re against spreading AIDS to the heterosexual community
Muslims, show you’re against terrorist bombing of western kindergartens.
Not cool huh? No, and the male-bashing white ribbon campaign is equally unacceptable.
I encourage others to comment on their Facebook page. Feel free to use my campaign variations above. It shames them and makes the point. Their censorship response simply shows they are unable to defend their sexist campaign.
FOR THE ATTENTION OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN REFERRED HERE BY THE WHITE RIBBON PAGE ON FACEBOOK.
You will be here because you will have followed a link suggesting that this site contains similar content to alleged ‘misogynistic comments’ that were deleted from white ribbon’s facebook page.
Many people were outraged when white ribbon chose to upload a sexist poster that revictimised many men who had suffered domestic violence. An online discussion ensued, but anybody who disagreed with white ribbon was denigrated and insulted.
Three (by my reckoning) individuals who had successfully discredited some of white ribbon’s claims had their comments deleted, were blocked from posting, and were then subjected to vicious slander from white ribbon, which they were unable to defend themselves against. One victim even had it implied that he supported rape, when an out of context quote from somewhere else (it most certainly did not come from MENZ) was associated by implication with him and with MENZ.
I have followed this whole saga and I saw for myself that the comments that were deleted were moderate and inoffensive. But they did discredit some of white ribbon’s views, and thereby threatened their credibility.
Please do not judge those who have been silenced when you have not seen what they actually had to say. Don’t believe the hype, but demand to see the deleted comments and decide for yourself!
The only abuse has come from white ribbon, but they choose to hide behind lies, deceit and abuse.
They have abused people and they have silenced them. That is totally unacceptable for any group that claims to be an anti violence organisation.
Shame on you, white ribbon.
