Warehouse Stationery > The All Blacks > White Ribbon
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.
