Violence and World of Warcraft

I do not know much of the facts or what happened to the Gold Queen.  She was attacked not long ago by five men which has left her hospitalized.

Violence against women or anyone for that matter is something that is just not acceptable, and should never be tolerated.

I received a e-mail forwarded to me by Power Word Gold about this from someone who wanted the gold making community to post something simultaneously with a link and/or image to the white ribbon campaign.  I decided I will just go ahead and post something now.

What is the White Ribbon Campaign? The White Ribbon Campaign (WRC) is the largest effort in the world of men working to end violence against women (VAW). In over fifty-five countries, campaigns are led by both men and women, even though the focus is on educating men and boys. In some countries it is a general public education effort focused on ending violence against women.
Violence against women happen both online and in meet space as well however so I want to remind everyone, who ever witnesses physical or verbal/mental abuse that is our job to stand up and speak out.

It is sad that living in these modern times when we have come so far from ancient times, that intolerance still exists today.  sexism, racism, intolerance of people's beliefs or lack of beliefs, many things have come farther in the right direction then they where in the past but yet there are still some who stubbornly hold onto beliefs that women are somehow less then that of men.

Please show your support for those you care about, by being passive about anything we witness makes just as much a part of the problem.
