USA! USA! USA!

[TRIGGER WARNING: CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE, CHILD MARRIAGE]

Every time people act like the U.S. is so much better than any place in the Middle East, I laugh until I die a little on the inside.

A little something I got in my inbox this morning:


If you can't read the details, these say:

Pakistan Is Stepping Up for Trans Rights: Pakistan’s parliament passed one of the world’s most progressive bills on transgender rights last week – a major milestone for the conservative South Asian country. 
This US State Just Became the First to Ban Child Marriage: One down, 49 to go. By raising the minimum marriage age to 18 without exceptions, the state became the first in the country to outlaw the harmful practice.

We really need to stop throwing stones.
