Out on a limb
An email I sent to the British Heart Foundation today:
I went into the Oxford BHF shop today to buy some greetings cards and came out without cards and very upset. Why? The text on one of your cards was: 'She always gives me sound advice... 99% sound, 1% advice.'
I was staggered and assumed it had been donated but no, it had the BHF logo on the back.
We all swim in a sea of low-level misogyny all the time so it's easy not to see it but if you think I'm just a 'humourless feminist' (that's another bit of misogyny, by the way) please consider:
Would you put this on a rack if the same text was by a white person about a black person? Or by an able-bodied person about a disabled person?
Please get this offensive stuff out of your shops and shred it.
I took a picture of the card as evidence but I’m certainly not blipping it.
