This use of acid is the most cowardly, devastating and unacceptable act that must trigger the necessary legislation or licensing mechanisms to prevent it.  Women have been primarily targeted, though not exclusively and the availability of such a means, for male and human brutality to wreak among its worst excesses and indulge its most gross base instincts, must be prohibited. I, with every right thinking human being, stand in total solidarity with the victims of these attacks against their wicked perpetrators.
I hope, most earnestly, that the ugliness of such an act will be confronted by the tenacious and brave humanity of the victims, as they navigate such an immense challenge and are encouraged and supported by the love and the goodness that we must all show to them. Together, we must strive for the liberation of all people from all the varying tyrannies to which we are subject, male and human violence being one of the most acute.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man.
To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression
is truly an act of a pure heart."
