so this wh*** thing got started with this post here
. you should check it out. lots of good back and forth going on there.
and i was going to talk about this anyways, but i've been holding off, because, well, its a big button issue....
cultural sensitivity is highly over rated.
stay with me here
a culture is just a collection of practices. that somehow got all glommed together and now its, i dunno, history and people and a link with something....
some of these cultural practices are not good
in some places in africa, they still practice the cutting of the rose. that's where they remove a womans clitoris when she comes of age. do i have your attention now?
in some cultures, they stone a wh*** family if a 30 yr olf man rapes a 12 yr old girl. they stone the little girl and her family.
in the americas, we spend more money on subsidizing the corn industry than we spend on foreign aid. Why? cause he's a farmer and his dad was a farmer and his dad before him ever since we came and killed the native people. it's culturally significant.
well, after that (and there is more, you know there is more), y'know, maybe i am not so concerned about culture all the time. not all of it at least. i'm not saying lets have a mcdonalds on every corner. i'm saying lets stop killing people, lets stop hurting and mutilating people, lets stop keeping people sick because some religious leader says so
enough already. it makes me sick. good people doing nothing, hiding behind a flimsy blood soaked curtain of 'cultural sensitivity'!
