9. good grief
I hate to break this to you, but women are not equal to men in Christianity, either. Or in our society as a whole. If you believe otherwise, you have your own issues of living in denial. Glass houses.

School systems in the US are dealing with economic problems, yep. The schools where they are coming from are facing worse problems. One of them is that girls aren't so much being allowed to go to school in many areas. In some areas, girls are being sold as sex slaves so families can survive.

If you are as concerned about women's rights as you claim you are you would make fixing that a priority in your life. Telling them they need to stay out of your backyard because you are more concerned about your precious locker room than their being sold into prostitution or being denied education, and claiming it's related to your concern over women's rights is laughable.

Instead of posting on DU about the need for ESL classes, volunteer some hours to go teach them. Go be part of the solution - it's obviously something that concerns you.

What I see is that some people give lip service to the rights of women when it serves their self-centered political purposes, but when it comes to actually putting forth any effort - or even standing by quietly and not getting in the way - when there's an opportunity to help those women get access to food, shelter, and a small amount of financial security, suddenly that concern transforms itself into anything BUT caring about those women.

Better to leave them in Iraq dying in childbirth for lack of medical care than actually lift a finger to help, right? And let me guess, you consider yourself "a feminist."
