Try telling that to women living in Islamic countries where it’s the law to cover themselves whenever they want to go out in public and often they can’t even drive or enter a building without a male escort. But you won’t hear a peep from first world feminists about that because they’re too busy making sure you don’t blame all Muslims for every terrorist attack.</p></blockquote> <p>I mean you can have it both ways. You can say not Muslims are terrorists but know that there are places around the world where women get screwed over.</p></blockquote> <p>Of course you can. But the people I&rsquo;m talking about don&rsquo;t. They don&rsquo;t say a word about the absolute atrocious state of women in many Islamic countries. And they call anyone who does Islamaphobic.</p>

Being Alone, Best Friend, and Blessed: gnstagnan An exterior that is steely hoping not to be attacked. Harsh outward shows of violent react, to society. These nations & beliefs that were created by ancestors we didn't endorse, we take vacations from griefs devastated by reality of course. You can be your own best friend or your own worst enemy, but don't just pretend like you are okay to yourself so that you can cope, it's ok to be sad, alone, you can't lie to you. We are all in the same mess, this is why it's ok to say you are not ok, to me anyway. Because I have been there, sitting on the edge of a bed wishing I could cry, but I spent so many years numbing myself from the reality that is the hate, anger & confusion of unanswered questions never addressed. What am I supposed to do apart from be, I have to be seen to be strong, I have to be a man. I gotta be able to fight, women should chase me down, other men should respect me because of material objects that validate my existence justified by the laws of success, created by unhappy men. Those men who murder... I was trained to murder by the British army, for political interests of sick human beings. Now I am training myself to love myself unapologetically, so I can be a trained lover & be free to express myself without care of the judgement of insecure males, who forget that they are half female & are emotional beings. Brothers it's ok to be emotional... Not just emotional about football & money but about other beings, they matter. To be honest is to be free, you aren't a robot, it's not cool to fit into a society that is unhappy & repressive... self destructive, created by those who were in the same mess & didn't have a clue. It's ok to share how you feel, you can do it publicly or to yourself, because who are we really trying to impress, when we profess that success is some corporations material interests, but won't confess that this mess we ingest leaves us depressed, you'll regress until you undress the congress of compressed emotions buried and repressed by you & the collective oppressed, that shout "I'm blessed" but really they are just hiding from their own neglect. We are all the same, it's ok to say I'm not ok, well to me anyway... chakabars
