So much fighting over absolute nonsense.

I'm upset that Turkey is moving towards Sharia Law, the Taliban is negotiating to end the war,

do any of you understand what that means?
I do.

I was born in a country, FINLAND, where women and men were and are equal.

Finland was the first country in the world to give equal,
full political rights to women in 1906,
(which actually was eleven years before Finland got independence, back then Finland was an autonomous Grand Duchy of Russia.)

Women could fully exercise their voting rights and stand for elective office.
