Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
“oppression is not a competition”
thank you so much for this wording
Hamas has proudly announced that it fired a rocket at Jerusalem, home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The silence from the Muslim world is deafening.
I realize a lot of people out there are not religious, but this city is opposed to be home to where Mohammad received the words of Allah. So if Hamas is bombing it they are committing very public disrespect of Islam. Like an European immigrant receiving citizenship in the states then bombing the statue of liberty in protest of not getting on welfare.
Actually Jerusalem is the third holiest site in Islam based on this Quranic verse. Jerusalem is never actually mentioned, but Islamic scholars decided that the “farthest”, or “remotest”, or whatever mosque was Jerusalem. Mohammed never set foot in Jerusalem unless you believe the story that he was taken there by a flying horse.
reblog this post if you also sometimes sit down in the shower because sometimes standing up is just too much exercise
One of the saddest and most hil- NO BITCH, the sad thing here is the fact that you're a stripper. If you want respect, maybe you should've graduated high school. 😂😂 when did stripping become a legitimate career?
Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
no offence but soccer is so dumb unless it’s being used as a plot device in an amanda bynes movie about destroying gender roles
