Welcome back to activist Instagram. It’s been a while since I saw you last. My dear, liberal friends: I missed your memes, I missed your outrage, I missed your spunk. You thought that after you successfully took down Donald Trump using the power of your personal social media account with 125 followers, all of whom (except me, of course) vote and think exactly like you, that you could take a break. Oh, no, there is an abortion law in Texas (you don’t live in Texas, but don’t worry your little head about that detail) that needs your full attention.
I’m deadly curious, though, and I must know: Do you in fact know what the Taliban is? You keep referring to those in Texas who support the new pro-life law as the Taliban, but do you know what it is? I’ll give you a hint, they were in the news just last week. I didn’t see you post about it, but I’m sure you’ll get around to it, as the proud and brave feminists that you are.
Speaking of brave feminists, here’s the real thing:
"Do not recognise the Taliban or legitimise them"
A 2nd day of protests held by brave women in Kabul. The West & countries in the region have already abandoned Afghan women. But their recognition of the Taliban could make things even worse for them
