Yes I did, this is exactly what I'm talking about. You have been throwing around name calling from the start and that might work for you on Reddit but it won't here. People will pass judgment on you before they talk to you and they won't bother to Google " humanitarian groups woman's rights third world" for you because they just don't think you're worth it after you bitch about crybabies before even engaging anybody. Not to mention, the fact that you don't think Aid is being provided to the third world is embarrassing. If you were 13 I would be compassionate and attempt to help you but you are an adult so at this point you made a choice not to understand the world.

I did not say you are barely literate but now that I'm realizing you didn't read my username I'm thinking maybe that's accurate. Which again goes perfectly with my assumption that you choose not to see the world around you. You made a choice to ignore the aid provided to third world countries just as you made a choice to ignore the username of the person you are talking to.

The hardest person to analysis is ourselves even though that's ssometime the most worthwhile. It might be worthwhile for you to take a moment and analyse why you think you already know everything. Most people would think I wonder what's done for the third world and then Google that before deciding it was 0. Most people would check who they are speaking to before assuming. You however assume there is nothing to be learned which is precisely why people don't feel the effort of googling for you is worth it.

If I am mixing you up with someone else, I apologize, it is less assuming and more a little difficult as a new user to follow all of the threads on this website.

Dude, obviously there's help going to Third World countries, my point is not that there is zero help going out there, that's you assuming things out of things I haven't said, but the way you speak makes it sound like there is a overwhelming abundance of people helping to save women for being burned alive for refusing a proposal of marriage.

I've googled this stuff before, and there just doesn't seem to be much help available to these women. My point is why is everyone discussing a poster, when there should be equal if not more discussion about a woman being burned alive for refusing marriage?

As other users said, marathons or not one by the mile but by the as other users of said, marathons are not one by the mile but by the step, this may be true, but its fucked up of people running the race to eradicate offensive posters but nobody's running the race to eradicate women being burned alive.

To me it comes across as appealing to people's laziness, it's easy to complain online about a poster, it's very hard to go fly to a country away from friends and family to save the life of women you've never met from their truly barbaric culture.

It's not hard to not mix up, you made a choice not to simply look at the username above the first word of my text. I was a new user very recently, and that's a lame excuse.

    my point is not that there is zero help going out there

    but nobody's running the race to eradicate women being burned alive.

It really is your point though that nobody is helping because you literally said a few lines down that nobody is helping. Nobody=zero

There is no point in getting pissed off or angry about this issue because it's a massive issue that will take decades to fix. You think women gained the rights we have overnight in first world countries ? No, that took a very very long time and wasn't one straight line moving forward. So what does spending your entire life outraged accomplish for these women ? Nothing. Flying to countries to save these people is the dumbest thing to do. I have a friend who studied International Development and spent some time in Ghana. She was telling me about how on one trip there was a group of high school students building a school who spent most of the time taking selfies. You know what happened at night ? The locals came to work/fix everything the kids fucked up. You aren't some hero and the likelihood of you saving anybody is slim.

It's not just about saving these women from their husbands. It's about opening schools that they can safely go to. It's about providing contraception so women don't end up being held back at way to young of an age. It's about how the people experiencing the turmoil need to be pissed off enough to begin revolutions in the communities because we aren't some saviors. The people of those countries need to demand more or they will just get the same crap from somebody else even if we "save" them. It's about a lot more as well and it will happen but it won't happen in any of our lives and that's what we need to accept.
