- @kecia_ali not that anyone is giving a pass& Ive talked about imperialism this way too but we do this for men and only HAVE to do it for men 3 days ago
- @kecia_ali women would partake in the same behaviors. But they/we don't. It seems that only men get a "pass" in the name of imperialism 3 days ago
- @kecia_ali I've seen people (for example in re: boko haram) cite the US for the kidnapping and rape of schoolgirls, but if that's true then 3 days ago
- @kecia_ali I'm sure that women also abuse each other in the aftermath of an invasion, but it seems the abuses are not to the same scale. 3 days ago
- @kecia_ali After, all sexes suffer from the aftermath of imperialism, and if anything, women bear the brunt of it. 3 days ago
- @kecia_ali I've a question! If imperialism is a factor to abuses in the Middle East why don't & and women react the same way to invasions? 3 days ago
- @kecia_ali Thanks so much!! @chroniclevitae 3 days ago
