    White Ribbon Australia goes into liquidation

    Schadenboner time.

    White Ribbon Australia is kaput

    Now, domestic violence is a bad thing. Some men here are victims: glassed, stabbed, run over by some psycho bitch. But WR was always 100% about "end men's violence against women". So fuck them. WR was also one of those "raising awareness" charities. They didn't run shelter or anything, they just raised awareness. Which is to say, their goals and methods were always entirely political. So, double fuck them.

    Their focus was on what they called "primary prevention", which mainly involved scolding men in general and boys in schools. Needless to say, most men willing to sit still and be scolded, hanging their heads in shame and guilt for being a man in the first place aren't going to be wife-bashers.

    Nevertheless, big corporate sponsorship and all the perks that come with being a charity.

    So why are they going down? Well, seems they ran out of money. How TF does that happen? How does an organisation with no expenses but advertising and admin, with grunt work done by volunteers (technically, although a lot of them were dragooned into it), that gets tax-free money from the public trough run out of money? Nothing in particular - it mostly went on salaries, it seems. No big embezzlement, just nickel and dimed to death. But wait - you ask - who decides how much the employees get paid? The employees, obviously. I mean - who else is there? They answer to no-one.

    WR is going under, then, because the people in the organisation have looted it. And I'll bet that quite a lot of those people looted it while off on sick, stress, and maternity leave. Doing nothing and collecting a salary for it. And feeling absolutely justified in so doing. Don't you know they are all single mothers with kids?

    Leaving the world still run mostly by men with old-fashioned, outmoded ideas like "integrity", and "a fair day's work for a fair day's pay", and "if someone is paying you, you should actually turn up to work and do the job".

    Ahhhhh! It's a good feeling, seeing your enemies fall.

    re: White Ribbon Australia goes into liquidation

    I'm doing my part! I'm not violent toward women, never was, now there's almost no chance of violence since I ghosted half the human species.

    Sure there's the oddball angry bitch trouble starter, but that's what CCTV, dashcam, and bodycam are for! I guess I could be violent when attacked by women being violent, but that hasn't happened either, and I've been seriously assailed by violent women being violent on more than one occasion, I chose to defend myself without striking back. Maybe the next violent woman won't be so lucky, or maybe she will, ya never know when someone's gonna pop? It's the main reason I walk softly and carry a big stick!

    Ya never know, but limiting contact and conversation to ZERO will decrease the odds exponentially!

    The parasite outgrew the host? Shocking!

    This place was nothing but a training ground for greater ambitions. It will be interesting to see where these 'successful' managers move next.

    I wonder if they hit hard times by touching the third rail of abortion, aka "reproductive rights," even though they apparently tried to walk it back (which, by the way, was a huge political mistake). Nothing will start a lib's head spinning faster than not fully supporting the killing of babies. From their warped perspective, you may as well be Satan himself.

    Re: White Ribbon Australia goes into liquidation

    For those like me who didn't know, from Wikipedia:

    The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) is a global movement of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls. It was formed by a group of pro-feminist men in London, Ontario in November 1991 as a response to the École Polytechnique massacre of female students by Marc Lépine in 1989. The campaign was intended to raise awareness about the prevalence of male violence against women, with the ribbon symbolizing "the idea of men giving up their arms". Active in over 60 countries, the movement seeks to promote healthy relationships, gender equity, and a compassionate vision of masculinity.

    Re: White Ribbon Australia goes into liquidation

    I am very wary of anything I read on Wikipedia. It often gives good and valid information on any given subject, but just as often it is skewed beyond reason.

    If you’re unsure of this just read what it has to say about MGTOW here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men_Going_Their_Own_Way

    Associated with the alt-right, the MGTOW community has been called a misogynistic male supremacist group. The Southern Poverty Law Center places it "on the borders of the hateful incel community".
    How many of our members here relate to this definition?

    With regards to Unboxxed post about Wikipedia’s entry about the WRC, even if this is true, where is the gender equity mentioned in the quote?

    It mentions male violence against women and girls, something I’m definitely against generally speaking, but what about female violence against men and boys? Where is the equality?

    I don’t know anything about the movement, but from the Wikipedia mentioned entry it seems like just another feminism movement to me and I’m glad it imploded!

    It just needs a snarky goodby song, and someone at the door to tell them to not let the screen door hit them in the ass on the way out.

    Re: White Ribbon Australia goes into liquidation

    If it takes public funding for human rights reasons in 2019, its almost sure its to the average man a much bigger threath than burglars or robbers.

    Of all the people around me, the ones Im concern the most are those who say they act for what is right and moral or even worse for fairness.

    Maybe they could take a stab at the men's shaving supply market?

    Indeed. These are the people I find have the least understanding of such concepts.

    Re: White Ribbon Australia goes into liquidation

    It sounded like what they were doing had more to do with having power and control over men and boys rather than preventing violence or keeping women safe from violence and abuse.

    First, violence isn't divided by context, so there is no 'domestic' violence. It's just violence and it has nothing to do with patriarchy or men oppressing women.

    Second, if their intention had been to keep women safe, they would have wanted to have educate women on the real risk factor for aggression such as sense of entitlement, poor impulse control, low socio-economic status, tendency to make hostile / angry interpretations for events. An educated guess would suggest that those behind the white ribbon campaign possessed many of those traits (as do many of the women behind the feminist and Duluth scam).

    So what they were doing put women more at risk. So it's good for women that their brand of misogyny went out of business.
