Now Playing Tracks

Passing the Summer Solstice 2014 mark, it is crucial to realize and innerstand that the energy present right now affords all of us the opportunity to plant the best seeds (thoughts, words, actions and intentions) that will be harvested later in the year by means of manifesting into what we call the “physical realm” of each of our own experiences. May we all put our best foot forward and be ever mindful that in every moment, we are striving to make our thoughts our reality and tuning ourselves into our own destinies by the choices we make and the energy we emit out to the universe. Now, more than ever, is this truth crucial to our progress as a collective entity, the human family.

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
