Post Post subject: the Independent taking oppression of women for granted ! Reply with quote

letter to the Independent today:

" No culture ever has traditional rights to be oppressive and hurt any population group with exclusion experiences, full stop. Absolute human rights always, automatically, take priority over any culture. For anyone who says otherwise opens the door to racial exclusivism, sectarianism and hate crimes.

Hence Nicole Kidman's didgeridoo playing was a highly necessary stand, long overdue, for the absolute rights of half the world. For its view the so-called Metropolitan Aboriginal Land Council has forfeited all status count as to representing anything else whatever than extremist hate."

The Independent's story was entirely PC about crawling to cultural sensitivities, which are in fact nothing more than a hate crime, and not one word considering that fact appears. Women's rights, and the obvious evil in any cultural history of excluding anyone from anything ever, have been utterly ignored in their report.

It is shockingly disgustingly weak and undemocratic. It crawls to a lobby based on their loudness of voice even when its policies are hate.

By exactly the same logic they should crawl to the BNP and its view of traditional Britishness. It's tradition, it's culture, that's always good, so it can't matter if it hurts anyone and means hate and violence?
