This is an underated movie…
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
it was literally gold
I love how she sounds & looks so deep when she’s saying something so obvious ! LOL
But I suppose for English speakers it might not be so obvious, isn’t it ?

So LEAVES ON THE WIND #2 came out on my birthday, and it’s as good as the first one. It actually feels like a story out of the series.
GO BUY IT SO THEY MAKE MORE.
