i used to work at a company that did typesetting and graphics. over the desk of one of my co-workers was a sign that was meant to warn against the dangers of careless typing and proofreading - and also intended to shock and amuse. the sign read:
THE PENIS MIGHTIER
THAN THE SWORD
i always found it disturbing - and all too true!
i don't know what made me think of that just now.
and i know - guns don't kill people - people kill people - and that could apply to this as well.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
