FFS Friday - the White Ribbon edition.

So many shiny things this week! Not many crap things... bar one. This one puts all the other crap in perspective, and I don't really much feel like having a first world whinge. And it's a big point, so I'll give it some breathing room.

This week we heard the worst domestic violence incident I've ever heard. We called the police. They took their time. We called them again. They turned up. Phew!
Then, we heard the female say to the police officer 'No, I'm fine. Everything's fine. Nothing's wrong over here.'


Truly. I don't believe for one moment that the police bought it, but what can they do?
No one, male or female, deserves to be treated like that. No one should let themselves be treated like that.

I don't swear very often here, but for fucks sakes.

Do you swear? I've also sworn over here... you should too.
There's also Men's Line for blokes to chat too, and Lifeline (13 11 14) for anyone needing help 24/7.
And to the lady in question, I wish you'd knock on my door.

I will be back oh so soon with a real FFS Friday...

Dear Baby G
