go Russia! go Putin!—as long as that doesn’t mean pain and suffering for the Russian and Ukrainian people of course.
What I mean is, the United States could use a little competition. We’ve considered ourselves to be the world’s sole dominant power since the Soviet Union collapsed and if you ask me, we’ve grown stale without any competition.
Now, it’s not like this Russian display of power in Ukraine will be the first time America’s grip on dominance weakens (see education, healthcare, economy, etc.) but maybe this blatant flexing of Russian muscles will act as a bit of a wake-up call to our noble legislators over in D.C.
while they’re fighting over anything and everything just for the hell of it, the world is passing the U.S. by.
I’m all for lgbt rights and all that but yo, how much of a bubble must we be living in to think that a country like Uganda is gonna make lgbt rights a top priority when they have a whole other list of human rights issues?
why aren’t we outraged about all the other human rights violations going on in the world?
there are sooooo many posts about lgbt issues on tumblr but barely any about hungry children and arbitrarily detained tortured prisoners, and so on.
stop with the trends. all human rights issues deserve attention and outrage, some more than others.
