December 6 has been proclaimed the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women by the Canadian Government and commemorative events occur annually across Canada to remember the women killed and to continue action to end violence in all its forms.

The Montral Massacre of December 6, 1989, in which 14 women students at the cole Polytechnique were systematically killed and 13 other students wounded by a lone gunman, is indelibly imprinted on the minds of Quebeckers and others who struggled to comprehend the worst single-day massacre in Canadian history.

My Aunt was one wounded in this attack. Please show your support and wear a ribbon. You may notice the one I have in my avatar, if anyone else would like one, I would be more that glad to do so for you. I will be wearing one on my avatar until December 6th, and continue until December 20th, one extra day for each of the lost women.

Please be aware. Please be aware of abuse against women. Please, try and put a stop to it.

Show your support, wear a ribbon.

Oh, that's good... the soldier, gun in hand, depicted in UO's avatar is wearing a white ribbon which is to remind us of all the female victims of violence...how appropriate.

The picture in my avatar is showing support for the soldiers that have or currently are fighting/fought for their country (US or other). Why then can I not also show support for this?

This seems like a very worthy cause to drum up support for. I hope many others join in.

(sarcasm) Oh, of course you can support both. I mean, violence is so relative. Its alright to kill enemy soldiers, but not anyone else... I completely agree. (/sarcasm)

I do not wish to argue with you as it is not appropriate in this thread, but perhaps I didn't make myself clear, so maybe I should rephrase: My avatar is showing support for the soldiers that have died for their country, not because they are killing other people.

Xepher, you are beginning to smell like a troll to me. Do you know what happens to trolls?
This thread wasn't created for you to throw off track with your garbage.
Be careful. You'll not get another warning. So far, your main contibution to his board has been ignorance and insult.

1- A troll is a person that just stirs up trouble. Kinda like a guy that spews filth in a thread looking for support for a good cause.

2- This is a privately owned site. Do you recall clicking yes to the Terms and Conditions that you probably didn't read? Your free speach is NOT gaurunteed.

3- Do you have anything else constuctive to add or are you going to continue with #1?

#15 of the T&C:

Consider yourself asked twice.

Violence against women is just plain wrong. But...I got questions...

Besides proclaiming a day for remembrance, has the Canadian government made these crimes against women stricter?

Can these women get guns to protect themselves, or do they have to rely on ribbons to protect them? Canada does have strict gun laws don't they?

I am not critizing ribbon wearers, but it reminds me so much of liberals...Look at my ribbon, it proves I care, and as long as I care, it makes me feel good!

Sorry to anyone in advance, but really what good is caring if no action is taken? BTW wearing a silly ribbon is not taking action.

Its about showing respect to those who died and those who suffer today as a result of this tragedy,

Im sure some things have changed,

Wearing a ribbon it a show of support, showing that you acknowledge the fact that these women where killed,

How is bringing attention to the problem not taking action? Action comes in many forms and the most important one is to educate the people that there is a problem. I think these liberal ribbons as you would say serve a decent and worthy purpose.

There's an article on that site titled something like "how two pornographers turned me into the 'F' word" and it's by a man. I think you may find it an eye-opener about how much "yeah yeah. We'll nod to shut the feminists up" is done and how LITTLE they think this problem is.


Can these women get guns to protect themselves

Women have been socialized against violence. Very few know how to shoot and of those that do, most would hesitate to harm/kill someone. By the time she made up her mind, he'd have the gun and another weapon.

I'm not making this up. I coached fencing (sword fighting) and they used to use me to "retrain" the guys. Most women with a sword in their hand are very timid or very hysterical fighters (even with some training.) I'm very unusual because if you come after me aggressively, I will come after you and tear your head off.

The guys would always start off very confident and "ho hum" about facing a small woman on the fencing strip. After I had scored about six hits on them and run them off the fencing strip several times (I chased one guy up into the bleachers) they got the message that Not All Women Are Wimps.

But most couldn't use that gun. And most can't use most of the "self-defense" tactics we're taught (it's not that they're WRONG... it's just that they work well UNLESS you're in pants, running shoes, and you're being attacked by a Very Small Man who is your height.

There ain't that many 5'3" muggers in America, lemme tell ya.
