This blog exists to challenge white heterosexual male supremacy as an institutionalized ideology and a systematized set of practices which are misogynistic, heterosexist, racist, genocidal, and ecocidal.

PARDON Abused Mother Marissa Alexander for Standing Her Ground

  • signatures: 75,533
  • signature goal: 100,000
  • Target: Florida Governor Rick Scott
  • Sponsored by: Susan Vaughan

The Stand Your Ground Defense failed domestic abuse victim Marissa Alexander – who didn’t shoot anyone.

Only after enduring a year of violence from her husband Rico Gray, who
has a documented history of abuse, did she arm herself for protection.

The next threat came just nine days after giving birth to their
daughter. Gray, in a rage, cornered her and threatened to kill her. But
instead of shooting him, she aimed upward. The only thing she hit was
the ceiling.

Gray ran into the street, claiming she threatened to kill him and his
boys. Marissa, on his word alone, was arrested and charged with
aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

For protecting her life and children she was just sentenced to twenty
years in prison, even though Gray has since admitted his intention to
harm her. There’s no excuse for Florida to deny this responsible mother
her freedom.

Marissa is currently in the process of appealing her conviction. Tell Governor Scott to PARDON Marissa NOW!
