Religious head coverings such as a hijab or yarmulke are worn out of love and devotion. In some countries, religious laws require women to wear hijabs and it shouldn’t be like that. It should be an option and would have more meaning if free will was the case.
In Iran, a twenty-two-year-old woman was beaten for shedding her hijab and later died. That is a horrible tragedy and now the women of Iran are protesting. I support those women who are standing up for themselves there.
Right now it’s hard to be a woman because religious zealots desire to control their lives. They also face abuse and violence. Women deserve better, they deserve respect, and they deserve freedom to choose in a myriad of ways.
Let freedom ring for our mothers, sisters, wives, cousins, friends, and others. It’s the 21st century after all or so we thought.
In so many things people can’t seem to put aside their issues to perhaps learn and experience something new. Science fiction, movies, television, comics, professional wrestling, etc. can’t seem to escape racism, homophobia, and more. It’s pretty sad if you ask me.
Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday. The 21st anniversary of 9/11 is Sunday. My imagination is focused on the Queen’s passing because it’s a current event whereas 9/11 is history. I still remember what happened long ago as much as I think about what happens in real-time. Strange, I know.
Dragons are everywhere on TV and in movies. I think there are too many shows featuring the mythical beast. To me, it’s all overdone. Isn’t it time for something new? I am supposing dragons are now a trope. Too much of a good thing is too much.
One side has policies and acts for the middle class while the other holds rallies and is actually friendly to corporations and the like.
Why defend corporate tax breaks when most people won’t benefit from them? Also, why not support college loan forgiveness when many people will benefit from it? It seems that greed and selfishness are moral failures here.
