    RE: Black ribbon day?

    White Ribbon launch today. Please if you get the opportunity ask them if we still need to question, or the like.

      I have to say, I'm rather fond of the indigo ribbon idea for various reasons. <.<

        It's annoying that all these colours are taken, otherwise a black ribbon would be a great idea.

        What we should do though is design a T-shirt with a really clear and provocative slogan on it, and start wearing those proudly at protests and on "White Ribbon Day".

        Maybe something like "So violence against men is okay, then?" or "Why aren't you saying 'Stop Violence Against EVERYONE'?" It's provocative, addresses the crux of the issue and will make people reflect on their own bigotry.

            Remember, women are ribbon freaks, they've already come up with a thousand of the fuckers.
            Agreed. We don't need no ribbons!

            Seriously, using a ribbon would send the wrong message IMHO. We don't need to emulate them.

              When I send an email my signature line reads "I object to violence against everyone".

                I'm with brock. Ribbons are useless decorative drivel, hardly appropriate for a male statement. Our symbol should be something iconic as it relates to our movement. Personally I'd pick our recording devices, and I'd have us paint 'em pink. The tool we use to make them take responsibility, in a color that reminds them they've made it necessary.
                Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.
