Because there are protest ideas that just aren’t worth it:
MONTREAL — Canadian women are being asked to send their panties to the Burma embassy in Ottawa to protest the actions of the country’s military regime.
The call for the underwear is part of the Panties for Peace! campaign, launched by rights activists in Montreal.
Activists say the campaign is meant to send a message to Burma’s authoritarian leaders, who reportedly fear contact with women’s underwear will sap their power.
It’s not because these guys are both idiotic and nasty that we have to imitate them.
