What if we create a code of conduct to encourage forgiveness and stop the circular firing squads?

Above are a series of Code of Conduct images that hopefully will encourage forgiveness I put together from pics on the Internet. Sometimes having graphics helps people to imagine a future beyond the current, oppressive situation that they are in. These are just rough drafts and I greatly welcome more images that are not put together by me. I am currently seeking help in working on creating a standard feminist code of conduct on blogs, and in addition, I am going to start working on a collective to promote forgiveness so there is not so much in-fighting.


Towards an end to institutionalized patriarchy...within our lifetime.

We have recently seen LGBTQI come under such vicious attacks as to have constitutional ammendments created to discriminate against them. The time for us to work together is now... before it gets any worse for all us.

Divided we are weak... united we are strong.

We must learn to forgive one another instead of fighting one another.

"....a political struggle that does not have women at the heart of it, above it,
below it and within it is no struggle at all.”
