you know, there are some people who just think that my lil family living in the states right now would be the best thing for us. they think that there are just benefits of living in teh first world that you just cant get here in egypt. and they think that all of the benefits of living in the third world exist in the first world. they have spent a tiny amount of time outside of their comfort zone. like those tour buses i see riding through the suq here.
of course this is a huge crock of shit. but you cant convince ignorant people who are so assured of their own intelligence that they are ignorant.
srsly. there are people in this world. who think that us spending a couple of days in israeli detention with aza was irresponsible of us. we should have gotten on the next flight back to the states.
i have thought about writing this really extensive post refuting these mythologies and memes. but srsly. what is the point? if you have never been in that situation. and have so little trust in me and my partner that we would make the best available decisions for aza and our family. then you can srsly go fuck yourself.
i srsly do not want to even hear the non verbal opinions of people who spend their time gaining as much privilege as they possibly can under the guise of being able to help others with it. bullshit.
let me tell what i am giving my daughter. utter love. and knowledge. the knowledge that your privilege will not save your soul. and that using your privilege to ensure that nothing really bad happens to you. is evil.
we all make compromises with evil. we have to. but judging people because they refuse to compromise with evil. refuse to let their child be used as a means to force the mother to comprimise with evil. that. well, i feel sorry for people who have compromised their very minds to evil in order to not have to experience the evil that men do to each other.
