Think women are second-class citizens?
Think they can be pushed about, just because you’re a male?
Think rules apply to women but not to you?
Think you can use up their lives and cast them aside when you’re bored?
A Call To ArmsEighteen years ago, among the upper class of Clockworks City, three distinct morons decided they wanted to feel younger and more ‘alive’. To look more successful to those around them who didn’t really matter, but always had to be impressed. These morons were Charles Buttingway, a famous food chain mogul, Bradley Stittlebrew, a lowly political hack who made his fame writing speeches for politicians who couldn’t think for themselves, and Avery Gavelslam, one of the First District Judges. Three high profile and sickeningly wealthy gnomes, who decided to throw their kind, faithful and ever-supportive wives to the curb. The jokers never even tried being discrete about it. These marital tragedies hit the tabloid papers by morning coffee. Peggy Buttingway, Robyn Stittlebrew, and Daphne Gavelslam had their faces splashed across the front page of the papers for all the city to ridicule. What the husbands didn’t realize, was that unlike them—their wives ran in the same social circles. Each of them highly respected and in many instances, revered in both political and charitable societies. Peggy and Daphne had been on the South Side Children’s Hospital committee for four years, while Robyn and Peggy were the founders of the ‘Feed the Children’ campaign for factory working mothers. All three were on the board of the Women’s Shelter Alliance. Distraught, confused and utterly abandoned, Peggy, Robyn, and Daphne called upon one another for comfort and support.
No Rules, No MercyWhen the divorce cases came before the local judge, favors had already been called in. All three husbands were given the homes, cars and virtually every asset obtained during their marriages…including the kids. It was a landslide of horror. Given a single check, as if they were nothing more than fired employees—Peggy, Robyn and Daphne took refuge at the Clockworks Women’s Shelter to lick their wounds.
“We knew this wasn’t right. Not the divorce per se—our husbands proved to be nothing more than the residue of dog feces you find on your shoe at the end of the day. I specifically mean there was something more going on that being replaced by younger counterparts. So we decided to find out.”
“It was one thing to say, ‘I don’t want to be with you anymore.’ But quite another to cast a spouse aside without any means, especially when that spouse focused their whole life around you to help you succeed.”
“You don’t want to play by the rules? Fine. Let’s go with that.”What these ladies did next became High-Society legend.
W.H.I.P.Throuh all their trails and tribulations, these amazing women started a national organization to battle the injustice against women. Unlike the claims of some—Peggy, Robyn, and Daphne did not attack the gender.
“There are a lot of good, good men out there and we have no desire to focus a red light on their who love and care for their wives. It’s the ones who prey upon women and take advantage of love and loyalty that we despise! Make no mistake, W.H.I.P. was established to bring justice to those who truly need it. We are not a hammer for the bitter, unsatisfied, and selfish women out there who, in some cases, may be as guilty as the men we target.”Starting with their own cases, W.H.I.P. openly attacks abusive men by any covert means available. Framing, blackmail, setup (prove it)…even boycotting, just to name a few, have become the everyday speciality of the nearly 2 million members.
Above the LawTo this day, there is not a single officer, judge, or political leader who will speak up against or oppose W.H.I.P., for fear of unknown repercussions. Though the organization openly uses illegal tactics against abusive men, W.H.I.P. continues to support their ‘Marriage Counseling Division’ to help couples work out their problems and is the #1 advocate for family planning, and supporting the nuclear family.
Since the founding of W.H.I.P.:• Divorce rates have dropped by 32%
• Domestic violence has dropped by 21.7%
• …and child support payments have increased by 48.1% • Female applications to college have increased by 84%
