Many people are still fighting to get this nasty little gadget off the market.
George has never given up and I commend him for this.
Please help.....

This is the Trading Standards Address in Swindon, England where the company are based.

From Janet's (my local Trading Standards officer)reply (below) it would seem that further compalints may be important.
Thanks.

Heck, I say let them sell it.

Be a perfect "Get Out Now" symbol for guys.

Say you visit a particular femaleshome/apt/etc and see that little gem. Instant "Get Out Now" sign.

If you visit someone who has one of these, you would be a very poor judge of character.
What would you be doing there?

I have already been campaigning against this thing, from clear across "the pond". A few weeks ago, I photoshopped together a little ad flyer for those people, designed to put them in a pretty bad light. The flyer includes contact information. I have been spreading these flyers here and there, in Washington state USA where I live, and hopefully this has created some ripples already. Time will tell. I would advise others to consider similar samizdat actions. Not only does it put the heat on "those people", but it serves the larger effort against feminism as a whole.....

This is the kind of thing that would stick in the collective mind like glue from hell if it were made widely enough known. So let's make it widely known, and make sure that a link with feminism is clearly established; when people think of feminism, the Knife Block Man should be one of the images that IMMEDIATELY springs to mind.

Further thoughts: If we succeed in "correcting" those people too quickly, we'll deprive ourselves of the exquisite sport of barbeque-ing them slowly....and making them famous for all eternity. The propaganda benefit would be lost if this thing ends with a brief splash that is quickly settled and forgotten. We don't want it to be forgotten; we want to leave a scar, a permanent record. We want the Knife Block Man to become an historically enduring symbol of feminism.

Dont we....? :?:

This problem has gone on for months now. George has contacted politicians and many agencies, I myself have contacted religious groups to no avail. The problem with leaving it any longer is this.

As you can see the things just get worse and worse. We have to stand our ground.

A big thank you for the response we have had. I have had lots of e/mails please get others to send the message that would be great.

Well I know some women (and sadly a few "men" ) who find this filth funny .
It was posted on a female friendly board a few months ago , much to the delight of the man-hating feminists . I protested and was "flamed" .
I was told to "lighten up" "It's only a joke" etc .
I am glad I am not the only one who found this incitement to murder (for that is what it is ) offensive .
I hope this gets banned and anyone caught selling it is subject to the most severe penalties .

Believe me ..George has tried everything!
I have seen the e/amails... police, government.
The church, I have tried myself, to no avail.
This is a last ditch attempt to stop this nasty little gadget..
I will not give up.

If you had a similar thing for black people, or women, or almost any group other than men, it would not be tolerated. The media would be all over it. It would probably be construed as illegal in some form or fashion.

This is a very good example of the inequality that exists.

Want to see one Zarby this is what someone sent me to put on my blog?
