Domestic violence isn't a joke and this t-shirt isn't funny. Help us get enjoi to take down the shirt and continue spreading love of skateboarding without adding to the desensitization of violence that already exists.

Portray women in a positive light, be the skateboard company that steps up and changes the image. You can be cutting edge in your culture without Misogyny, promote equality in 2013! Acknowledge and apologize for merchandise and advertisements promoting Domestic Violence and Rape. We are waiting for your statement and apology.

      Phoenix woman goes after California skateboard company over T-shirt - Phoenix Business Journal

      A Phoenix woman wants a California skateboard company to remove from its product line - and by extension Arizona store shelves - a T-shirt she says makes light of domestic violence. The shirt in question, produced by skateboard gear and apparel company Enjoi Skateboards, depicts a woman wearing a sling with the caption, "He really does love his skateboard more than me."

      A skateboard company has withdrawn advertisements which appeared to promote domestic violence and rape after a female skateboarder led a backlash against the images. Enjoi, which makes skateboards, clothes and accessories and sponsors a professional team, pulled the offending images from its website on Thursday after an online campaign mobilised protest.

      Ginae Klasek
      Petition Organizer

      UPDATE: I just got off the phone with a big wig at Globe/Dwindle, he seemed to get most of what we are saying and he was pretty nice. He said our points are important and enjoi needs to reevaluate and not trivialize any of these points. I told him to contact the media request on the enjoi page and lets end this story on a positive note. I told him we wanted a public apology, a commitment to start depicting women in a positive light, the removal of the "Ex_Girlfriend" t-shirt, the removal of the "where yes means no" advertisement. I asked that the shirts that have already been sold all proceeds made be donated to a domestic violence shelter of their choice. We will see what happens next. Lets hit 2000 by tomorrow evening news!

      Much Love,

      Domestic violence against women, girls and childs have no place for jokes, in many cases it leads to death or suicide. The glorifying of domestic violence must be banned worldwide! violence cases that result in death are on the rise in Iowa. A new report from the state’s Iowa Domestic Abuse Death Review Team shows Iowa averaged about 15 deaths from domestic violence per year between 2005 and 2009, compared to about 12 per year between 1995 and 2004.

      Binnie LeHew, with the Iowa Department of Public Health, says all domestic violence deaths can be prevented. “In many cases, family members and friends are aware that their loved ones are in these relationships and there have been threats of homicide or suicide,” LeHew said.

      “So, we’re really encouraging the public to take those threats seriously. If they want to help a loved one or they’re in that situation, there are resources available and they can get help.”

      In 67% of the cases, gunshot wounds were identified as the cause of death. The Death Review Team is recommending that seizure of firearms be required for all misdemeanor domestic violence convictions. LeHew says there were 10 or 11 cases that the team reviewed in which the perpetrator had been previously convicted of domestic violence.

      “If the law were changed, those could have been automatic weapons seizure orders,” LeHew said. The report shows women are the overwhelming victims of homicide and in 42% of the cases the perpetrator committed suicide.

      If you buy let along wear a shirt like this, you're a worthless piece of shit. If you buy any of Enjoi/Globe products then you're a puppet for handing your money over to these companies that want to abuse your daughters, sister, mothers and grandmothers.
