poster 27


27. wALK THE TALK?  We can act against abuse by being more aware of our opinions, speech and actions that might be arrogant, intolerant or biased. By looking honestly at ourselves and realizing that we too can have blind spots and double standards. By making a strong commitment to change. By signing the Consent is Sexy pledge. Enlighten yourself. Empower yourself. Speak out against abuse and sexism. Respect yourself. Respect the rights of others.

    I am white and my girlfriend is black. Everywhere we go people stare and often make stupid comments about us. Our parents (hers and mine) are unhappy about our relationship. Apartheid is supposed to be dead and buried. I want to say to all those intolerant people who criticize us : stop being so judgemental about other people and mind your own business.

    This is the poster that made me stop and think. Do I really have blind spots? Am I prejudiced? But if I am honest – it’s true. I do laugh at gay guys sometimes. I’m not even sure why I do that. But I know it’s not fair. This makes me see that all kinds of prejudice at their root are the same thing – a kind of fear. We don’t like it when people are racist but is prejudice against gays different? I don’t think so.

    This message is great. Change starts with you! Until I acknowledge that I am capable of blind spots, change cannot happen.

    Great Message! Change starts with you! And to first accept that I am capable of having blind spots, is the first step to becoming aware and then making a change.
