@AtlanticCanuck That is true, racism seems to be another issue that gets a lot of push back too, of the "what about reverse discrimination?" type. Campaigns for gay rights, too. Homophobes will say that gays are demanding "special rights" or "special treatment".  Prejudice operates like that, unfortunately.

Martin, thanks for posting this blog. I had actually never heard of White Ribbon Day, not even sure if there is such a thing in the US. 

There is one thing I don't get: why is it that every time there is a campaign against sexism or violence against women there are people who say but what about men? There are specific campaigns for every single issue on our planet and this kind of reaction just doesn't happen. Like, if there is a campaign to end the killing of unwanted dogs at animal shelters, I don't see people complaining about why there is no campaign against cat killing. Cat people just go ahead and have a campaign of their own, and we all win.
