Win The Scarf Of Choice

Further to the ongoing kerchief brouhaha concerning the post on the Repeal The Eighth silk scarf by Poland-born, Ireland-reared street artist Berriblue, (above) who now lives in Porto, Portugal with with her husband Wilim.

Wilim (with handlebar, top) has engaged in hand to hand combat in our comments arena over the past two days.

As a mark of respect, We have purchased ONE controversial scarf to give away.

Normally these will set you back 50 ‘large’ with half the profits going to the Abortion Rights Campaign.

But you can have it for nothing.

Sez Wilim

The scarf is printed on 100% habotai silk, with hand rolled hems. It measures 60cm x 60cm. The most interesting feature is that there are three different slogans – ‘Repeal the 8th,’ ‘My Body, My Choice,’ and ‘Her Body, Her Choice,’ for men. Since scarves are such a versatile accessory, you can tie it in a load of different ways, displaying different slogans.This instagram clip shows off the different slogans.

To enter, please complete this rhyme:

‘My scarf is a little red,

My scarf is a little blue,

    ‘My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Your scarf would be so handy,
    To wipe sh!te from a shoe.

    ‘My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    What she does with her body
    Has nothing to do with you.

      Congratulations to Ultan

      All of the non trolling entries were really good. It was genuinely hard to pick. We ended up being picky with grammar and metre. In the end we picked this because of the nice rhythmic triplet on ‘nothing to.’ Certainly employed as a technique to add emphasis to a wonderful, simply articulated point.

      Thanks to everyone else who entered, and Merry Christmas!

    ‘My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Bodily autonomy for all,
    Mini Jesus’s for a few’

    ‘My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Poor little babies,
    The pro-aborts hate you.’

    1. realPolithicks

      My scarf is a little red,
      My scarf is a little blue,
      People who say “pro-aborts” are ahole$,
      And that includes you.

    Why only half the profits?

    Seems like Repeal the 8th is becoming quite the little promotions tool for craft businesses.

    If the scarf is for charity, then all the profits should go to the charity, otherwise it’s profiteering from a cause. Is Willmm confusing costs with profits?

    1. Wilim

      Hi Daddy,

      The reason that we’re donating half of the profits instead of everything is that we’re simply unable to give any more than that. We’ve just set up a new business with a small loan and some scraps of savings and are working hard to make it a success.

      People are often extremely concerned with the potential for personal gain made from charitable causes. In some cases that’s justified but in others it’s extremely detrimental and misses the point. In our case we’re simply doing what we can. We can’t put the time and money into something that’s 100% for charity and even if we just made a personal donation it would be very small in comparison to what we can generate through enterprise.

      Dan Pallotta articulates the point better than I could in this lecture, have a look – https://goo.gl/oBe6pb

      On the topic of abortion rights there are comparatively few people left on the fence, so declarations for one side or the other are important here as they show solidarity and alleviate stigma surrounding the issue. Repeal merch gives people a wearable declaration, and I hope that everyone who gets a scarf wears it with pride!

      I hope that answers your question.
      Lots of love,
      Wilim

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Wear this scarf around your neck
    Or round your Willie too*

    ‘My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    I had a Penny Farthing
    way before you.
    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    I drank craft beer, ate artisanal quinoa
    way before you.
    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    I stiffen the ends of my mustache,
    with a wad of my own man goo.
    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue…

      1. James Chimney

        Why thank you. I have some illustrated letterpress prints of the above for sale at some sham carboot sale masquerading as a craft fair in some damp, abandoned Smithfield poohole.. sorry art space. I’ll keep you one.

  8. Cool_Hand_Lucan

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Women’s basic rights,
    Are long overdue.

    1. Wilim

      Sorry Rob_G,

      Silk ain’t cheap yo!

      Most of our scarves go for between €40 and €50. We put this one at the higher end as there’s a limited number available. At the moment there’s 7 left. We’ll possibly get some more made in the new year.

  9. Brian Stack's boxing nightmare.

    Abortion on Demand Now! is a better slogan. That’s what progressives want, that’s what all rational people want.

  10. Custo

    My scarfs a little red
    My scarfs a little blue
    Make sure to wear this scarf
    So people know to avoid you

        1. Jocky

          What exactly are they raising money for anyway? People know where they stand on the abortioon issue. Nobody is going to see a Repeal sweater and wonder what is that all about.

  11. Daisy Chainsaw

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue
    I’d prefer bodily autonomy,
    But today, a scarf will do.

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      Watching foetus fetish snuff videos again? You so called prolife lot have some seriously fupped up kinks.

      1. newsjustin

        Prolife people would prefer that a foetus remain alive, intact and within its mother’s womb until if was due to be born.

  12. mildred st. meadowlark

    My scarf is a little red
    My scarf is a little blue
    When I think of 10 years ago
    I think of you

    I think of the child
    I used to be,
    My hand forced
    By pregnancy

    I think of the child
    Who could not be,
    A decision to go
    Across the sea

    1. mildred st. meadowlark

      My scarf is a little red
      My scarf is a little blue
      And I swear
      Every day
      I think of you

  13. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    I’m not a woman, but if I was I’d love to have a strong-minded man to tell me what to do with my body.
    -Preferably a farmer, or maybe a jumped-up Primary-school teacher with ideas beyond his station and / or capabilities. So long as they had a nice suit on them and went to Mass every Sunday, sure isn’t that what really matters?

  14. newsjustin

    My scarf is a little red
    My scarf is a little blue
    I have a rhyming disability
    So I’d probably be aborted in England.

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      How many foetuses with rhyming abilities in utero have you come across newsjustin? Fetal rhyming disability is right up there with other stupid pronouncements like abortions give you cancer and make you a child abuser. I expect the antis on twitter will have sock puppet accounts like @RhymingUnbornBabies4life and @PrenatalPoetsagainst8th reposting your drivel as fact before long.

  15. Barney Zarathustra

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    We’d have a better country,
    If they introduced this in 1842 .

  16. Turgenev

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    She’s a decent oul’ skin
    That young wan Berriblue.

  17. Frilly Keane

    My scarf is a lotta Red (with a bitta white)
    And deffo not blue ( note that)
    That tash is a fierce dandy yoke altogether
    Immaculate, Prissy and Groomed like a Crufts next runner up
    So Definitely not a Yellowbelly

    I wonder was it Made in China too

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      Abortions are either spontaneous (ie miscarriage), or on demand (pill/procedure). My body, my choice is exactly what it says it is. I choose whether to be pregnant or not and when pregnant, I choose how to deal with the pregnancy, whether it’s a birth plan, an abortion etc. It’s a lot of things.

  18. Anna

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Women are not livestock to be bred
    Or dictated to what we can or can’t do.

  19. Charlotte

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    You can’t judge a woman’s situation,
    unless you been in her shoes.

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Rape, assault and life threatening defects,
    If only you knew.

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    Women don’t have bodily autonomy,
    Yet men are allowed to screw.

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    You don’t HAVE to have an abortion,
    BUT you can allow other women to have the choice to!

    1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

      I like this one the best.

      If it was me I’d change the third verse to
      My scarf is a little red,
      My scarf is a little blue,
      Women should have bodily autonomy,
      You only have to think to know that that’s true.

      – But that’s just me.
      And this is the vote of the sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq jury.

    ‘My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    But who cares for homemade stuff,
    Only Gucci will do.’

  21. Michael Holland

    My scarf is a little red,
    My scarf is a little blue,
    It’s a personal choice,
    No matter what others say or do

  22. Karen Bradley

    My scarf is a little red,

    My scarf is a little blue,

    My ovaries are mine,

    and nothing to do with you
