Step Apart from Six Apart, & Nurse In at 6A HQ

Step apart from Six Apart on 06/06/06M
Let's communicate with SixApart. They can ignore e-mails: they can ignore letters: they can probably ignore nurse-ins, though anyone who lives near enough in San Francisco, Paris, or Tokyo should definitely give it a try on Tuesday 6th June.

What they cannot ignore - what their bottom line will not let them ignore - is a drop in numbers of the people using LiveJournal.


For anyone in San Francisco, "a nurse-in is planned to take place at Six Apart's US Headquarters, located at 548 4th Street, San Francisco, CA. The event is planned for 12 pm on Monday, June 5th. The activists encourage nursing mothers and supporters to join in the protest."

Maybe a RL event will get more media attention. I don't think the journal deleting will do anything tho.

How super awesome would it be if Lj "accidentally" ran a purge and "accidentally" forgot to exclude accounts deleted less than 30 days ago?

EWxactly why I'm not participating, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they did exactly that.

My favorite remark on the mommie tantrum comes from a member in the feminist community:

"If anyone truly believes that being told you can't show your nipple in a default user pic is the equivalent of being told you can't show your skin color, then I can only conclude that those people live in a different world from the one in which I reside, and if I were to give that world a name, it would be White Privilege."

LOL so true!

Otoh feminists would usually be saying it's wrong that men's nipples can be shown and women's can't, especially the Ontarians.

...and not so much as a peep about the nurse-in from anyone.

I think we have a good idea of how that turned out. It's okay. I'm sure tomorrow will be a resounding success!

It was a less-than-massive demonstration, as described here:
