Saturday’s Special Secret

“Some” of the world has been watching recently, of the uprising in Iran, against the Fundamentalist, Suppressive, and often-times, Brutal Islamic regime. Much of which, is the stance many women there are also taking against the extremist rulers, in fighting for their freedoms, rights, and even priveledges. 

But, ‘watch’ is the only thing our proverbial Western Society seems capable of doing; for, I have yet to see “Feminists of America”, or BLM (“Burka Lives Matter”), or even the well recognized North American Hashtag of #metoo coming to the rescue, heck, even in support, of the Muslim women in Iran. 

I have also yet to see, even one goal/aim/directive from our Canadian “Feminist” Prime Minister, to go himself, or at least, send someone, anyone, from his Liberal Cabinet to denounce said Extremist Islamic Regime in person, In Iran, publicly. 

What does this say now about “The West”? Are we so blindly consumed with outing myriads of sexual predators from various public positions “here”, that we actually forget there are Billions of women “Elsewhere” that experience hostile oppression Every. Single. Day.? Sadly, it would seem yet again, that worn out adage of “NIMBY” (“Not in my backyard”) has been ingrained into our collective conscience, and very deeply so. 

#metoo ?? What about #ThemAlso ?? Countless women internationally experience beatings, intense hatred, and unimaginable horrors over and over again, and have we lifted a finger to help? But yes, someone in the audience shouts out, “What CAN we really do?” Ok, Challenge Accepted; Wherever you are, right now, in North America, write to all 3 levels of your government, and your leaders. Civic (Municipal), Provincial/State, and Federal.

And do not just write to the ‘local’ representatives, also write to the leaders of your city, province/state and the President & Prime Minister. And too, here in Canada, definitely write to the Minister of Women’s Affairs, The Honourable Maryam Monsef herself…Yes, ironic isn’t it, She of all people, now that she was outed for actually being from Iran, not Afghanistan, should be screaming at the top of her lungs against the oppression of women in Iran…

But, what’s that sound we all hear?…

Crickets…and even they are getting even more silent…

It is times like these, that we awake and realize, there ARE only two (2) Genders on this planet, of which science has proven endlessly; but sadly, one of those Genders continues to suffer…even in 2018 A.D. 

Just…Thoughts…

(Ok, you have read this more than once, start writing!)
