THE EU PUTS THE OPPRESSION OF WOMEN IN AFGHANISTAN ON THE BACK BURNER...AS USUAL
I know someone, maybe lots of someones, are going to attack me for not understanding cultural difference or, maybe, even call me anti-Muslim. The truth is I am anti-oppression of women. I am anti-theorcratic state. I am against imposing anyone's religious laws on others. I have no use for reactionary religious BS no matter what the religion it comes from. I have little use for fundamentalist or ultra Orthodox anythings. I find it interesting the one unifying feature of all these religious fundamentalist is their apparent hatred and fear of women. I am unimpressed for those, like the EU, who seek to placate the theocrats. I've no use for that. So call me whatever you want, I won't be still.
