There are people on this planet, lots of them in your little world actually, who think it is evil to eat meat, wear fur or discriminate against minority groups. However, these same people think it’s okay to slap, ridicule, lie to, ignore, neglect and sexually abuse their children or someone else’s. THIS is the world we inhabit, not the pretend reality most create out of the clay of apathy and social selfishness. Yeah, I’m ranting again and it won’t fucking stop until they dump my sorry arse in the ground. CHILDREN matter more than anyone or anything else.
If you like your causes and demonstrations either in the physical reality or the virtual world via facebook, twitter, blogs etc, then why not demonstrate against the fact that children are STILL seen as property by their parents and the government and that they have no rights at all simply because they are innocent, weak and vulnerable.
As I sit typing these words I am completely aware that this post and anything I say/write on behalf children is futile and that no such demonstration will ever occur on par with the civil rights movement, gay rights, environmental awareness or even animal rights. Think about that and consider why this is. I don’t expect any comments to this and I certainly know there won’t be any shares or likes, because it’s too important and real and more than a bit uncomfortable for most.
