Yesterday saw the launch of the 16 Days of Activism Campaign in South Africa and we at MyCityByNight felt that was definately worth a mention.
We might at times even come across as a touch chauvenistic, but the truth is that MyCityByNight really loves the ladies and what you stand for in greater society. There are a great deal of women out there who make us really sit back in awe- not just cos they’re mooiness but also because they are doing a better job than most people out there at making this world a better place and really making a difference.
THAT is why MyCityByNight has no time for any one person who thinks that they have the right to abuse women or children- either verbally or physically. If you really feel the need to get your inadequacies out come have a chat to us- I’m sure a headlock and rear naked choke or two from us will sort you out.
A little bit more about the 16 Days of Activism Campaign: (taken from the government website)
Imagine if, for 16 days, there were no rape, no child abuse, no sexual harassment, no emotional abuse. The 16 Days of Activism campaign challenges South Africans to declare a truce on violence against women and children – and, ultimately, to make it a permanent one.
Around the country, South Africans are being called on to combat violence against women and children. For the eighth year, SA is taking part in the global 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women campaign, which runs from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) through to International Human Rights Day on December 10.
This year the campaign, coordinated by the Department of Correctional Services, is popularising the white ribbon as a symbol of personal and organisational commitment to the eradication of violence against women and children.
And as is the case with Everything down here in the South, you can win a prize for not abusing people and showing your support for something which should come standard to all human beings *sigh*
