if it is really 2016, why does it seem like the 1980s again?

 

Russia/China cold warring it via Middle Eastern Nations…..Justin-Trudeau-Because-Its-2015reagan_taliban

I remember being taught in school that we shouldn’t look down on cultures or people from them

but I think this is incorrect, we shouldn’t look down on people, only cultures that hold them down

as a women growing up in Canada, being told to be glad that I had 1970s and earlier feminist rights so to no think poorly of men in other nations who hide their women and do not let them participate is not exactly an embracing of cultures, eh?

 

besides, I only had rights as long as I was assumed heterosexual and I lost them all when I came out as a lesbian in 1993, after my university and college years….

so rights really only mean it’s a right when it’s granted, not when it;s demanded or asserted, but as a given – an entitlement of being a good citizen.
