From Greg: "Is that anything like Gorge Rising?"

>>>..the expression of a person's "gorge rising at" anything in the sense of loathing or disgust is derived...<<<

You are saying you have a sense of loathing over one billion women coming together to say "ENOUGH!" about men who feel they have a 'Right' to attack, rape, abuse, bully and belittle women?

Why does this not surprise me.......?


And now, back to the thread...From Ravi's daughter....

Petition to sign and also a very touching video from Anoushka Shankar

I wasn't aware of this movement before. Frankly *anything* has to be better than the massive commercial fest that is valentine's day.

Yes, there are some people I know locally who are taking part in this. It seems like a good alternative to the usual Valentine's Day cash grab.

One Billion Rising - Facebook Page

And taken from that page above:
POWERFUL video! - Flash Mob in San Francisco

Women have had enough....and I say this on a day when the main topicsof news over here are about an athlete who shot his girlfriend..and one of the main actors from Coronation St. who has been charged with 19 offences against children...

It is time for all The Good Men Of The World to Stand Up And Be Counted!

Yes, well, it's obvious you won't be amongst them, Greg, having seen your earlier comment..

So, if you don't mind me saying this, as a woman, please feck off and leave me alone, for your stalking of me is weird and unsettling. It ain't my fault that you're the kind of man who gets truly pissed off if any woman dares to show a sign of intelligence, doing your best to cut her down at every opportunity...

And cue his "Ha! Lizzie, you *think* you are intelligent?" jokes...


Yup..and I ain't afraid to say it, which also gets right up your nose, but hey, you know what?

Frankly, my dear, I don't give a fuck....

Actually, the situation is the exact opposite of the one you describe, Liz. Or is that Rhett?

Ah, Liz, you're not doing the Sisterhood any good the way you're carrying on.

And that's MR. Stalker to you.

You're doing The Sisterhood one helluva lot of good, for they can see exactly the kind of man that 'One Billion Rising' is all about...

You've not come into this thread for ANY other reason than to have yet another go at me...

And, for your information, I'm not part of The Sisterhood, but I'm standing right beside them in this, for the appalling things that have recently happened to two women in particular, one of them still a child, has brought women together around the world.

Sadly, there is not, so far, 'One Billion Rising - The Men's Group' but we will live in hope that one day The Men Of The World will come together to ensure this appalling behaviour and outlook disappears forever...

It's a shame that more men aren't in this thread telling you to shove your head where the sun don't shine, but hey, I'll say it on their behalf...


And now, back to the topic of this thread....

You think she'd appreciate the free advertizing I'm providing her, CS, but no. That's gratitude for ya!

but I'm standing right beside them in this

No, Liz, you're not standing anywhere with or near them. You're home, snug & warm, playing with your computer, and telling everyone what a wonderful job you're doing.

I don't know what Greg's motivation may be, but he's not doing anyone any favors with his immature heckling.

This thread is about a hugely important issue which needs to be kept in the forefront of public consciousness. Lizzie, thanks for the links.

One Billion Rising is thought by a lot of women to trivialise abuse. Like those pictures on facebook where people think they are saving the rainforest or curing cancer by clicking "like", 1 Billion Rising seems to suggest you can dance away rape and violence against women. It's a placebo.

Why I Won't Support 1 Billion Rising

No, no, no!!! Absolutely not, that's just foolish.

But you CAN Tweet & Like away all of those! Liz will explain how its done.
