Very troubling that women are at the receiving end of these things. Unfortunately we have similar issues in the U.S. regarding controlling women's bodies and their rights.

true, the usual suspects have their usual victims

Idaho bill would allow doctors or cops to refuse service to LGBT people on religious grounds | The Raw Story

Idaho bill would allow doctors or cops to refuse service to LGBT people on religious grounds | The Raw Story | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

An Idaho Republican can’t think of anyone in his state who has been forced to render aid to a gay or lesbian person against their will, and he’d like to keep it that way.


Rep. Lynn Luker outlined a proposal Tuesday backed by his conservative Christian allies to shield religious people from the threat of losing their professional licenses for refusing service or employment to anyone they conclude violates their religious beliefs.

Saudi female student dies after male ambulance crew denied access

Saudi female student dies after male ambulance crew denied access | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"Thousands of Saudis vented their anger online after staff at a Riyadh university barred male paramedics from entering a women's-only campus to assist a student who had suffered a heart attack and later died.

 

Amna Bawazeer, a Master’s student at the College of Social Studies at King Saud University in the capital Riyadh, suffered the heart attack at 11 am at the women’s college where she was finalising her course timetable for the second semester. However, when the ambulance arrived, the medics were not allowed to enter the college for two hours.

 

The university officials argued that the ambulance staff were males and could not enter the premises as the student was not covered and that no man could be allowed into the women’s college even though Amna needed prompt and vital treatment, local daily Okaz reported on Thursday."

Was Hitler evil?

Was Hitler evil? | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

"Was Hitler evil?

 

Most White Americans will say yes: he killed 6 million Jews in the Holocaust! But to avoid any double standard we should apply the same moral reasoning White Americans apply to their own history."

Community Village Sites's curator insight, August 18, 2013 5:42 AM

I don't think the word 'evil' is helpful because that is a religious term.  

 

Would we say that someone born as a psychopath is evil? I suppose if one is religious they would say that.  

 

Psychopaths lack the neurophysiological “hardwiring” that enables them to care about people's feelings. 

 

Psychopathy affects approximately 1 percent of the United States general population and 20 percent to 30 percent of the male and female U.S. prison population. 


The danger in every community and nation is that it only takes one psychopath to get into a position of power (or get their hands on a gun) to end up doing massive harm. 


Click through to read Abagond's post - then we can ask ourselves if U.S. culture is evil or psychotic.

We just had a similar talk at home with the kids while watching "Who Do You Think You Are?" (The episode with Chelsea Handler serching her German & Jewish family background.)
