    I actually think the “get Facebook to remove pages that contain rape “jokes”” is detrimental and refuse to sign them.

    I need opposition to polish my thoughts on this, though.

      Without presenting any reasons why you believe it’s detrimental though, it just kind of comes across like trolling, not seeking opposing views.

    Wow, nice to see my comments earlier today were taken into account. As always, everything that happens outside the boundaries of the first world matters little to first worlders.

    Really, a campaign to get femicide recognized as a crime against humanity is a very important feminist happening and I think it would benefit from treatment in feminist blogs that reach a wide audience, like yours. Help us get this out there.
