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
Reblogging again because reasons.
I’ve always thought comments like feminismisatrick’s to be vaguely threatening. They’re basically saying we should be satisfied with adults sexualizing our girls, because they could easily be throwing acid in our faces. I’d like to wear what I want and not have to worry about getting acid thrown in my face. Men get to.
i just need to say to all those people who wrote this letter and complain that m&g is to expensive: you can always meet them in the middle of the city. I did. I met Jared, than Tomo. Both were really, reaaaally friendly, they kept hugging us (yes they HUGGED US, not we them), each of them was talking with me for about 20 minutes. they were so patient and took photos, and whoa - SURPRISE - I DIDN’T PAY FOR THAT. They could runaway. They could tell me that they’re tired, busy and so on - but they didn’t. Actually i was a little suprised that they were so kind. So, no one, NO ONE can tell me that they don’t respect their fans all that ‘it’s all for money’
Stand up to injustice and hatred.
Look at that jackass go “I - I don’t like it”, as if it even matters. Sit yo stupid ass down, boy.
tumblr likes to post these kind of things without context, but i figured before everyone starts hating this guy they should know that his name is yousef erakat, a muslim youtuber from palestine, and he is performing a social experiment to see how people would react to someone attacking a woman in a hijab.
”it’s her choice ” my ass . I’m pretty sure she was forced to wear that thing by her family , religion and stuff
Look at this asshole.
Laugh at this asshole.
I’m a muslim, and at the age of thirteen, my mum and dad asked me if I wanted to wear a hijab. I said I’d think on it, and then later replied with no.
My sister said yes.
Almost every muslim woman (except for the bullshit propaganda your uneducated ignorant ass sees on CNN) is given the choice to wear a hijab.
Why don’t you take your ignorant comments and shove them up your ass, before I bitch slap you so hard you smash into the surface of the fucking sun.
