I just think we should not add fuel to that fire. I think it would be more
effective to protest this under the umbrella of OWS. Maybe during the
next big protest, somewhere, have all the women in front of the *line*,
or better yet, marching inside the group, perhaps with placards reading
all the same ... Solidarity within solidarity (or something
like that...) Nothing like visuals to get the point across.
I can barely read about this shit that is happening without finding my
jaw clenched and my teeth grinding away ...
IMO, though, I think women turning out in huge numbers in front of
their reps office all over the place will be the most effective. The *Not Tonight, Dear*
idea is clever, but it could put women in this light of being kind of
these manipulative creatures, insubordinate, disrespectful to the big bad hubby, etc. --
at least I think some could interpret it that way.
Huge numbers, everywhere. Personally, I've always been a fan of silent protests and
will suggest them as often as I can to anyone listening.
Every last one of them -- "Listen for the damned pindrop, people!!!"
Not only does it put a fine point on the excellent organizing ability of GAs,
but it could help to isolate Black Bloc as well.
