There are 10 days left and still stalled. I'm actually kind of upset about this - we have here an Afghani *man* who is literally putting his life on the line to aid and educate women, and I can't get more than a couple of people to share this? Out of a couple hundred? Seriously? We're all happy to share cute little graphics ad nauseum, but when it's something that could be life-altering for women, we can't be bothered? WTF, people?
11 plus ones

- Hey John, who was that comment aimed at?Apr 30, 2012
- I responded because you posted about me and/or to me.
By saying "no one reshared? really? out of 2/3 hundred?" etc.
As one of those few hundred, you accused me of something. It is entirely reasonable to for me to respond in some way, be it objecting, agreeing, apologizing, what have you.
Why I felt the need to respond is entirely explicable.
Why you pretend otherwise is not.Apr 30, 2012
- Being a callahanian will only get you so much slack. This is My House - you do not come into my house and be rude to me. Or maybe you do. In which case, don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
All the rest of you misogynistic assholes who think it's funny - it's not, you're not - all you are is a walking advertisement as to why we need to support women in their quest for education and independence.Apr 30, 2012
- Haha what? Holy cow. Rather false analogy but lets go ahead and use that analogy anyways. The only people who demand that I actually agree with everything they say instead of being allowed to have my own opinions, and consider anything else to be being rude, are not people I ever visit socially.
If you think that my saying "I don't like and don't think I deserve being accused of not caring." is being rude to you, then by all means, unfriend me.Apr 30, 2012
- the reason is because educated people can communicate better and to a larger audience. The one thing we have seen in the last few hundred years is the effect of education on global politics and subsequently the economy's. Information is power and the power to drive change.
My advice to you would be to travel out of your country on a very low budget and broaden your world view.Apr 30, 2012
- +Bogdan Ibanescu If you think the women in Afghanistan are unworthy of education because they're religious, I'd point you to a study recently where the more educated people are, the less religious they are: http://www.freakonomics.com/2011/04/25/does-more-education-lead-to-less-religion/Apr 30, 2012
