Repost from International Women’s Day 2018.
I wonder if there will ever be a time when people are just people. Human beings, just being human. Is that more unimaginable than jetting off to the moon for a Virgin holiday; or parting most of the American population from their favourite firearm? I wonder who put the idea into people’s heads in the first place. That to be superior members of the human race, rulers and people of power you must first meet the criteria of being white, male and heterosexual. Who decided this? I wonder why so many individuals around the world went along with this notion that a particular race, religion, gender or sexual preference was better than any other and in some cases still do. I just wonder. Especially considering a good half of the population are and always have been women. How did we let this happen? How do we let any injustices happen, some of the atrocities occurring in the world right now astound and baffle me? How do we manage to evolve so slowly?
