Today is a day of international protest against abuse, organised by blogcatalog.com

Today, September 27th, I encourage you to post about any abuse topic you care about — child abuse, domestic abuse, animal abuse, drug abuse, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, political abuse — and let the world know you stand united with thousands of bloggers as part of the Bloggers Unite “Blog Against Abuse” campaign.

Depending on your topic, you can even link to local, regional, national, or international organizations that you care about or support. Every post will count!

There are dozens of badges you can decorate your website, emails or blog with, and of course you are welcome to make your own.

There are a couple of places where you can place a link back to your post: blogcatalog and topix.

I wish to blog about the ‘gentleman’ who pleaded guilty to 14 counts of animal cruelty.

As the RSPCA report on their blog,

The court heard that the 14 charges related to 5 cats. One female, white short haired cat called “Trinity” had a broken back for 9 months, and despite being told by a Vet that the cat needed to be put down, nothing was done. 

The cat was also severely emaciated and dehydrated, suffered sores from dragging its back half around, had significant tooth damage and an elevated heart rate which usually indicates extreme pain. 

The 4 other cats also suffered emaciation and dehydration, severe eye infections and were infected with potentially deadly feline influenza.

One of the cats had also suffered a stroke and had neurological disease.

How about we ‘put down’ animal abusers? Or child abusers?

Let’s bring back castration as a way of dealing with proven child sex offenders.

    Castration might solve it if child molesting and rape were sexual crimes, but they’re not primarily sexual, they are domination crimes, the thrill of overpowering another, weaker, smaller person.

    I get more hate mail when I stand up for the rights of women and children. I guess the abusers and the masochists are offended.

    I am opposed to “pimp” as meaning “promote”. That’s verbal abuse in my opinion. Pimping is a filthy, degrading, abusive behavior.

    I think that abusing animals, ala Sick Vick, should be punishable as much as abusing humans. Weaker creatures need more protection and the punishments must be harsher.
