*Just to warn…This is a bit of a “trigger” topic, please read with care <3*
I was reading Tweets yesterday about the various of groups of people who helped fight with our ANZAC Troops. One group being Muslim soldiers…Oh the controversy…There was one Tweet that sound ridiculous to me though. Where a “man” asked if the Muslim woman condoned the rape and beating of women
Now this is why it struck me…
No, the woman did not condone that behaviour…BUT…I find it slightly hilarious that this seems to be the biggest excuse why Muslims are “bad people”…I’m sorry, Us as a Western Society are so great at not raping and beating our women? Us, as a Western Society, are great at protecting at these women and also our gay community? Brock Turner anyone? Or how great we are at protecting people who are innocent? How great we are at protecting Women’s Health because it doesn’t sit well with a certain group of people? Planned Parenthood Defunded (So much for the “Land of the Free”)… I wonder how many times this guy has called a woman a liar as soon as she said “Rape” … Or condemned someone for staying with an abusive partner?
I think some people need to seriously sit down and have a long hard look at themselves before they start condemning another country, because really, are we that far off?
