47. Dear Sabrina, you really do need to learn to read what people write.
Just because I state a fact does not mean I am "happy" or "sad" or "used to" something, or feel anything about it. You say "WOW" like you've never seen riot police at work? Are you that naive?

You have no idea what real oppression is, despite your hyperbolic commentary. Try living under a dictator, replaced by another dictator, only a crazy religious one, running like hell and leaving every single thing you own behind save the clothes on your back--and then come crying to me about what oppression is all about. That's an atual chapter in MY life, so I think I've got a pretty good grasp on the topic.

Oppression is when young adults are hanged in the town square for being gay, or for being raped by that pervert uncle. Oppression is being beaten to within an inch of your life because your hair wasn't sufficiently covered by your chador, or you were caught walking with a person of the opposite sex who was not a relative. Oppression is disappearing into the Evin Prison, never to be seen again...until your body is dumped outside wrapped in trash bags and your parents are called to come fetch it before it starts to stink too much.

Not being allowed to camp all night in a public park without any sort of permit is NOT oppression, and if you think it is, you have interesting priorities.

But whatever.

Do take the time to read and parse what people say to you. Don't assume facts not in evidence, OK?
