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

Understanding the importance of all things has allowed me to love every inch of this planet.

Understanding the importance of all things has allowed me to love every inch of this planet.

I hate that you don’t have to like someone to love them.

I’ve said and done some stupid things towards people in my life, but my love for them never diminishes… not a single ounce. I can only hope their love for me never does either.

I reflect on my actions daily and I really try to learn from my mistakes. I pray that these efforts don’t go unnoticed.
