Demanding Equality and Justice for Everyone
A recent gender-swap parody of Halifax Police Dept. misandristic “Don’t be that guy” poster campaign has been posted around another bigoted man-shaming event also sponsored by tax funds: Jackson Katz to Speak in Halifax in a public school.
We respect free speech, everyone is free to speak in public spaces, and unlike feminists at the University of Toronto we do not block doors preventing people to attend venues nor pull fire alarms, but we do not support public funds going into financing bigotry and sexism and will speak agains it, expose it,
We respect all the hard working police officers, men and women, who had no say in whether or not the official posters got approved by municipal management. And we ask that everyone understand this: the police staff of Halifax, on the street, working their arse off, putting their lives on the line, aren’t responsible for the management’s disapointing decisions to support a campaign slandering all men as potential rapist who needs to be reminded not to rape.
Don’t be that bigot.
