And this is why I can’t stand to read half of the whiny tumblr “feminist” posts.
“Recently the Taliban forced the closure of 600 schools in two eastern provinces where it has retained control, as part of its campaign to close as many girls’ schools as possible ahead of 2014. Hundreds of schoolgirls were admitted to hospital in a matter of days after drinking poisoned well water. The key target was the province of Takhar, with over 125 girls and three teachers of the Bibi Hajera girls school in Taluqan poisoned in their classrooms with a type of toxic spray. Days later, another 40 girls from the same school suffered similar symptoms. 160 girls were then poisoned in Aahan Dara Girls School in Taluqan, and almost 400 boys were also poisoned in a school near the Khost province.”
There is a real war on women (AND OTHER HUMANS) happening, and it’s not on Tumblr.
“In another incident, pupils from a mixed school in southern Afghanistan had to watch as their teacher and headmaster were executed for refusing to follow the Taliban’s warnings to stop educating girls.”
If you want to help protect women’s rights, and stop whining about fucking dumb shit, there are a lot of great organizations out there that you can raise money for or volunteer for. My favorite is Women for Women International, because I know the money that my family donates to them is being put to real use.
Uh anyway, now we’re both depressed so lets just go appreciate what we have and try to be productive.
