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.
I know I claimed I’d never talk about hot topics here, but this needs to be seen if you have any compassion at all.
Both are forms of oppression just one is of less severity, what’s sad is that they don’t realize this and appreciate what we have in our country
This is terrible and really sad and disheartening.
Yet in response to the above comments, I would like to say that perspective is important yes, but what is lost in the comparison between places?
Women (marginalized people) suffer everywhere, and they suffer differently, that difference has to be understood and unpacked while retaining/maintaining the common denominator of women (which we may expand to poc ,disabled, poor people, lgbtqa,ANY marginilized group) suffering and/or oppressed by respecting that difference yet moving forward in solidarity.
Setting up binaries, between the west and the awful rest, hurt everyone.
