andyofohio - oh look, an idiot on buzzfeed. typical. i know i’ll regret typing anything more than this, but i guess in my cold, dead, feminist heart there’s a small part that has hope you’ll see the light. please do YOURSELF a favor, and work on your critical thinking a little more. with your bountiful privilege in this country, one would believe you’re educated and have been exposed to many different people from all walks of life. that being said, it’s pretty clear you have already formed a negative (probably racist) view of islamic people. having an informative, constructive dialogue about the practices and punishments of islam is considered questioning, yes…but, invading countries and killing women and children, is not. neither is spewing racist hate all over twitter. there are evil people in EVERY religion or lack thereof. does that make all christians as a whole evil? or jews? or atheists? EVERY religion has oppressive/backward ass views depending on who you’re asking. just because the US’s cultural and religious views have evolved to being less restrictive does not mean our history pages are not stained with the blood of innocent men and women who happened to be of a different race or sexuality than the majority. and, news flash, IT STILL HAPPENS. every damn day. nodding your head in agreement when innocent people are slaughtered in the name of taking out evil people does not make you their savior, it makes you yet another oppressor. maybe turn your valiant efforts toward yourself before you try to save another country, or group of people from themselves. because with the latter, we have only done more harm than good.
