I am confused. I read the info. you sent. Went to add my signature as I want to support and am asked to sign into my Facebook account rather than simply sign and support. I annoyed do it anyway. I then am asked to allow Causes to add my Birthday. I wanted to pass that step to SIGN YOUR PETITION to support as this was the point and am unable to do this unless I allow you to add my birthday?? I have now taken more of my time to deal with the Facebook thing and write this note rather than the whole original intention.
Yep same thing happened to me not a smart way to get people to support this cause you guys ned to reorganise yr site so the petition can be signed directly!
the same for me, I signed up for the cause but I do not want my birthday to be raised, I want you to take note.
I have been a supporter of causes for some while so I do not suffer similar problems. However, some of causes' petitions are a little tricky; for example the one on Ecocide. If you are still experiencing problems try emailing Anne Dias, [email protected]; I have found her helpful in the past.
it is exactty the same for me! I dont want anyone to know my birthday date! or anything personal! We just want to sign!
I tried to sign the second petition but kept being asked to 'submit a number' - What number? I didn't want to state my birthdate.
same here. I just wanted to sign and add my voice.
I signed with no problem . I really do not know what is happening
I had the same experience and ended up not signing as a result.
Elizabeth and Claire-Cecile, I'm sorry about the problem you've had signing in. I think Causes has made changes to their set up. But I will bring this to their notice. Could you please try to sign into your own facebook account and then click on sign? For those who are doing that it seems to be working.
yes that worked for me, but still I had to allow the site to use my birth-date info..
All I had to do was touch the "Sign the petition" bar in the email and that was it. Nothing about Facebook or my birthdate. Maybe try again with the email...?
Thank you for your kind reply and concern. I tried again 3x and same Facebook / causes requesting my b- day. Other things I have signed in the past I just click on sign the petition and that's it with a follow up thank you e - mail. Not sure why this is happening with this Cause.
To Nick Godwin - I was once asked to submit a number. I put in a random number and it worked! Don't ask!
hi Elizabeth, We've got many complaints like that. And so we've finally posted this petition on Changes.Org too. Here's the link. Please sign and circulate. And thank you much! http://www.change.org/en-IN/petitions/women-deliver-apologize-to-the-suryanelli-gang-rape-victim
I tried to sign and share with my Facebook account, but then the submit button was grayed out, so I was not able to do either. No wonder there are so few signatures! Please let us know when you have fixed the website so I can try again.
I did the same without luck
WE EXPECT J USTICE TO THE TAMIL GIRLS WHO ARE RAPED AND KILLED BY SRILAN DEVIL MILITARY AND IPKF SENT BY RAJIV GANTHI
Thanks for your help. I'll email her. In the meantime, I've had emails acknowledging my signature from Causes, and saying a friend had accepted my invitation to sign, so maybe the problem was more apparent than real.
I have to say that it seems that the problem won't be solved until women fight back. Although I am pro-gun control, I'm beginning to think the women of the world should organize in groups to exact vigilante justice. There was an incident here in the county where I live, in which several women at a local bar and gathering place, had rohypnol slipped into their drinks, and woke up in their cars, realized they had been raped, and couldn't remember anything. I fantasized how great it would be if...

This sounds more than fair. But you would need to work with a group you can trust. Possibly hire ex military as paid mercenaries to target and obtain confessions before castration or otherwise. I know this sounds like madness to many "civilized" persons reading this...but most humans are uncivivilized and brutal by nature if given the opportunity to act on their basic primal urges. It is only a thin wall of community, laws, and upbringing that keeps many of them in check.
Yep...I have a 357 Smith & Wesson and whenever I move I let that information get around town...I also have a Bouvier with big, sharp teeth and a big, deep bark. When I was a young woman I got beaten up several times, nearly killed twice and raped once so I don't ignore the reality of the world anymore not 'even' in the wonderful nation of the U.S. Violence against women is so common place everywhere yet it is mostly ignored. 95%! of women who come out of military service have been...

Those women have guns & know how to use them but they are controlled by the strictest male dominated hierarchy there is...I bet recruiters don't tell the 18 year old young women about the personal cost of crossing that male boundary. Here it is 2013 and we're in the new Dark Ages. Everyone thinks we're so advanced because we have technology HA! but we're just 10,000 year old animals that stand upright and have bigger brains...a very dangerous species.
And we won't be here in another 10,000 years.
hi Susan, We've now posted the petition on Changes.Org too! Here is the link. Please sign and share. And thank you much for your support. http://www.change.org/en-IN/petitions/women-deliver-apologize-to-the-suryanelli-gang-rape-victim
I was gang raped too when i was 7 months pregnant, my childs father was the one who set up the attack & participated, my attackers were never brought to justice either, just like murder rape should not have a statute of limitations, my heart goes out to ALL abuse victims, stay strong xoxoxo
... I feel sorry for you ... the perpetrators be damned !!
Rape is always wrong
rape is a horrible torture for any victim and the least solace she gets is when the accused is severely punished. She has to bear with the feeling of humiliation for a very very long period and more particularly when the rapist is/ are powerful people. Such rapists must be given exemplary punishments.
...thei must be put out of their society.... also the cast system must be reviewed ... !!
HANG THEM & CUT THEIR ...
Same issue as others - can't sign the petition unless I log into Facebook, which I don't want to do, so haven't been able to sign. Not going to be a successful petition if this is how it works - sort it out. This is an important issue, more important than attempts to manipulate figures using silly signing strategies.
I've been a supporter for a long time too, and this is a first for me, but thanks for the suggestion. Seems this particular petition is a problematic one, judging by the comments.
Hi Joy, We've now posted the petition on Changes.Org too! Here is the link. Please sign and share. And thank you much for your support. http://www.change.org/en-IN/petitions/women-deliver-apologize-to-the-suryanelli-gang-rape-victim
I wasn't raped per say but I was sexually abused the fall out from this has made me a survivor and not a victim no more!!! I will not anyone to try to
I wasn't finished as I was saying I will not let anyone try to make me a victim again I am going to fight for women and I want to start an advocacy group specifically in the Fraser Valley because it sucks out here for that
This guy is dy speaker of Rajya Sabha India thanks to another women Sonia Gandhi and now to give him respectability women Forum invites him ;this speaks volumes of insensitivity for fellow women towards innocent 16 yrs old girl of Kerala.Imagine if one of their own kith and kin had been gang raped by marauders ; let us spread word among all l right thinking person whether women or men must boy cot this individual for ever Ved
Women's groups do not care about the plight of women, they exist only to promote abortion. They pay lip service to violence against women, but that is all they do. Many of us us are appalled at the rape female children and women ate enduring. But what is even more appalling is the deafening silence from the so called women's groups.
No politicians be encouraged to commit such heinous and cruel act to a girl at the age of his daughter.
