MITT ROMNEY = ADOLF HITLER, UN-AMERICAN
Here’s my reasoning:
Mitt Romney = Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler believed in the master race, ie, that some humans are just better than others.
Mitt Romney believes Gays shouldn’t have Equal Rights, ie, that they aren’t as good as other humans.
Therefore Mitt Romney is the same as Adolf Hitler. Imagine that scenario as the President of the United States. What parts of the world will he decide are not as worthy?
Mitt Romney = Un-American
The founding fathers wrote in the declaration of independence …
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Since Romney doesn’t believe Gays should have Equal Rights, he’s clearly un-American as he doesn’t support the principles that founded the US.
Any member of an oppressed or discriminated against group should not vote for him. A rich, white, religious, un-American guy who doesn’t support the principles set forth in the founding of America should not be the president, and anyone who votes for him should be ashamed of themselves.
Ask yourself how many candidates are equal to Adolf Hitler and are Un-American in their views?
This illustrates one of my life-mottos: perspective is everything.
In our culture, female autonomy (or agency) is usually seen in what is perceived to be a woman’s freedoms — as mostly exhibited through their sexuality (at least in pop culture portrayals).
We don’t necessarily always consider that a woman’s choice to be conservative in dress and behavior is as ‘free’ as a woman who ‘bares all’, so to speak. Not all women who wear cultural and religious garb are doing so out of oppression. Some choose to do so for religious, cultural, or political reasons.
And, even in the way they regard each other… “The only thing covered is the eyes” which could be seen as dehumanizing, something much of Western culture has been accused of when it comes to hyper-sexualized portrayals of women. “The only thing uncovered is her eyes” which could be perceived as just as dehumanizing, something that the West often believes is body shaming (perhaps out of cultural privilege/bias).
Women outside of our culture question the women within it because, to them, they see the displays of the female form as a result of years of males driving the progression of the culture. Raunch culture, as it were… People outside of of Islamic cultures question the women within it because, they feel, the culture is naturally oppressive to women and views them as ‘lesser beings’ to men.
To me, both women are free so long as they have consciously decided to dress and behave as they do, but I do wonder how deeply they question the constructs of their own cultures and WHY it is they feel the way they do about the subjects on which they differ. That is always the question. If you can’t deeply and meticulously dissect WHY exactly you do what you do, feel what you feel, believe what you believe, then to me you’re just going through life on cruise control. Question everything, but listen to, consider, and examine the answers you are given.
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I…
