DO AS YOU'RE TOLD
ragemovement:

An Indiana police officer has kept his job after pushing over a man in a wheelchair – despite his entire department demanding he be fired.
Lafayette Police Department Lieutenant Tom Davidson can be seen on video, dated October 1st last year, shoving paraplegic Nicholas Kincade.
The assault appears to be prompted by Mr Kincade bumping Lt Davidson’s foot with his motorised wheelchair.
The incident occurred near the Excel School in Indianapolis, where police were called by school staff after Mr Kincade allegedly told them he had a gun in his backpack. Responding officers quickly found the man didn’t have a gun and he was told that he could leave with a trespassing warning, at the school’s request. According to Turnto23, Lt Davidson was put on leave during an investigation into his actions, but despite his department saying that he should be fired, the Lafayette Police Civil Service Commision – who vote on hiring and firing officers – instead ruled ‘unbecoming conduct’ and sentenced him to a 30-day unpaid suspension and a drop in rank. http://metro.co.uk/2014/07/05/police-officer-pushes-over-man-in-wheelchair-doesnt-get-fired-4787679/

This is called humanity


I have nothing to say on this, these people are the pinnacle of human compassion, and that is all there is to it.

They look so much beautiful! Look how much beauty they were forced to hide under those hijabs.

True! Forcing Iranian women to cover up is actually one of the worst things this government has done. They hide the beauty of Iranian women on the world stage and want to replace it with their long beards and turbans.

The response of “omg look at how attractive they are, that’s why the law is bad!” completely and utterly misses the point of why a woman’s dress shouldn’t be controlled. Reducing these women down to their physical appearance spits in the face of their courage and takes the exact same attitude as the lawmakers who imposed the dress code.

Not necessarily! What I am saying is exactly what the government of Iran wants to put out there. They want to hide people’s beauty. This is why not that long ago a woman was deemed “too attractive” to run in an election: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/city-council-candidate-too-attractive-for-iranian-politics-8761630.html

Then refute the idea that a woman’s attractiveness is important at all, rather than disputing what makes a woman attractive. Maybe that’s what you’re trying to do but that’s not what I’m getting from your replies.

Maybe I misunderstood what you meant. Are you saying a woman’s attractiveness is never important? What are beauty pageants for then? or models whose job revolves around their physical beauty.

In this post the main thing I am emphasizing is their freedom to choose what they want to wear. That is the important issue. As far as their physical beauty, well many Iranian women are known for their physical attractiveness and they themselves are eager to show it. Just check out the night life in Toronto or in Beverley Hills, there is nothing wrong with that. Just as people who train hard want to display their muscles, or anyone who goes on a diet wants to display their physical results, or any form of strive people would have to be more physically fit. I don’t know why a positive support for physical attractiveness always turns into some kind of controversial issue and falsely distorted to mean objectification. Anyway,I stand with these women and anyone who is fighting for the freedom to be equal, not only with men, but also equal up next to other women in other countries.

You’re getting into much broader issues now, but I just want to focus on the fact that you brought up attractiveness in the context of women simply living their lives. I’m not saying you can’t admire someone’s attractiveness - that would be a ridiculous thing to say. But it’s not relevant to the issue of freedom of choice. These women aren’t competing in beauty pageants. I see that you support these women. You’d still support an unattractive woman’s right to dress how she wishes, wouldn’t you? That’s why I brought it up. Not because I think it’s bad to admire someone’s looks, just because it’s a poor argument in support of getting rid of oppressive laws.

1) it was not an argument against the oppressive laws

2) yes I would support any woman no matter what she looks like

3) some of the women who have taken part in this movement are my relatives and friends. If I want to loudly tell them and anyone that they’re attractive it’s nobody’s business but therm. Please focus on more important issues

Brazilian police clash with indigenous groups protesting World Cup.

This is important.

The only kind of thing I’ll be posting about the World Cup

We will not see this on the main stream news.

Oh hey, let’s keep spreading this because apparently soccer is more important than the rights of poor and indigenous Brazilians.

(Like, there’s nothing wrong with liking soccer but there is EVERYTHING wrong with an organization that will literally fucking murder little children for a soccer event, and the fact that no one in the mainstream is talking about indigenous protesters being assaulted and favelas being cleared with the use of deadly force in order to make room for a stadium is sickening.)
