India celebrated Human Rights Day on December 10 and passed the verdict against Human Rights to have consensual sex next day. India re-criminalized homosexuality. Some countries love to remain backward.
I respect men who protest against sexism, patriarchy, misogyny. Women’s oppression would never go away until men stop oppressing women.
This Saudi man is not a great singer, his song is not a great song, but his protest is great. Let’s listen to his song.
All they want to say is men are sad because women are not women anymore. Women lost their femininity. The ’70s feminist movement dramatically changed women. Women are not anymore submissive, shy, vulnerable, domitable, malleable, dependent, inferior, secondary, passive, obedient. Women have not played women’s role for decades.

I was forced to leave my country 19 years ago. Since then I have not been allowed to return to my country. I am considered the biggest enemy of the Muslim fundamentalists.
