Female paralysis e-mail warning

Please take a minute to read this.
This is very scary and COULD HAPPEN TO ANY OF US.

A few days ago a woman received an e-mail. Like many of the e-mails she had opened before, it contained important information about a woman much like herself who fell victim to yet another violent crime.

This woman read the e-mail twice, carefully taking it all in. She thought of the many times she too might have fallen prey had she been at the wrong place at the wrong time. She heeded the warning. She inhaled the life saving advice making sure to store it in the reptilian part of her brain where she could find it quickly if she ever needed it.

The woman then forwarded the e-mail on to her friends. There was nothing else she could do. After all she was helpless. Only a woman. Now incapacitated.

She couldn’t stand up to protest against war that condoned killing. She couldn’t speak out against organizations that blamed women for men’s actions. She couldn’t even lift a finger to turn off the TV when she realized her son was watching the very things she feared – for entertainment purposes.

She had fallen victim to her own paralysis.

But this doesn’t have to happen to you.

Do something about it while you still can. Stand up against systems that tolerate hatred. Rise up against violence and prejudices. Raise kids to be peacemakers. Take back your bodies. Demand the right to walk freely, unharmed instead of being a prisoner in your own world.

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world could be a different place if we just didn’t accept things the way they are.

  1. I recently read a short article in “Der Spiegel” that had two photographs of Kiera Knightley in it from the “Pirates of the Caribbean”. The photograph is of Knightley in a basket-like woven leather bikini top with a bow and arrow.
    The European promotional shot shows Knightley with her actual bust/bra size of an “a” cup; however, the American promo shot was enhanced: her cup size was changed to a cup size “c”.
    Too bad none of the American press ever reports on such things. Stick chicks are flat; heavy chicks are not, period.
