To all my fellow humanitarians who care deeply about equality and dignity for all people, let us use this opportunity to rally and come together stronger than ever. Hillary’s adult life has been dedicated to fighting for the rights of all people to be treated with equality and dignity, so let us carry on with her campaign motto of “Stronger together” and continue the fight …
Trump may be the figure-head called president, but that does not mean his values or beliefs are right. We must continue to fight against the hatred, misogyny and bigotry that Trump so vocally supported throughout his campaign! Do not give up! We’ve only just begun …
A powerful dramatization of the unjust acts of the Biblegod. If anyone can watch this video without being stabbed in the heart by the merciless cruelty of the Biblegod, I mourn for their hardened heart.
Twenty years ago when Hillary Clinton was First Lady of the United States, she addressed the United Nations and spoke these powerful words, “If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, let it be that human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all.” from that time until today she has tirelessly pursued the task of championing human rights for all people.
“The potential within every person to learn, discover and embrace the world around them, the potential to join freely with others to shape their communities and their societies so that every person can find fulfillment and self-sufficiency, the potential to share life’s beauties and tragedies, laughter and tears with the people we love – that potential is sacred.”

“Hillary Rodham Clinton’s dedication to the cause of women’s rights began early in her life and has never faltered. Whether as a stand-out young woman at Wellesley College, an attorney and advocate, First Lady of the United States, US Senator, or as Secretary of State, her banner has been held high. The words on that banner have been simple, powerful, and inarguable. “Women’s rights are human rights and human rights are women’s rights, once and for all.” When Hillary Clinton uttered those words at the 1995 Beijing Conference on Women, the effect was electrifying. Never before had a woman of her prominence spoken out with such boldness and clarity on the appalling treatment of women around the world. And they certainly had not done it in China!” http://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/foreign-policy/192081-hillary-clinton-a-lifetime-of-human-rights-advocacy
The other day on a social media site called “Quora” an interesting question was asked about why generally speaking the females of many animal species are smaller than the male. A person responded by asking the questioner to look at it from a different perspective and ask the reverse instead … why are males generally larger than females? When the question was rephrased, the answer is strikingly obvious.
In most of the animal world it is the male who fights for the right to mate with a female, and generally speaking it is the strongest and biggest male who wins the privilege of being chosen by the female to breed. Consequently, it is the strongest and most fit male who passes on his genes making his offspring the strongest and most fit for that environment.
As this evolutionary process continues generation after generation, the males become larger and stronger. Females on the other hand have a different set of selection pressures that act upon them, such as females who are most fertile and take care of their young the best are naturally the ones whose offspring survive and reproduce, thus passing on the genes for those qualities. When the question is approached from this angle it is quite easy to see what makes the evolutionary process work so well in allowing the most fit to pass on their genes. This logical approach is far different from the religious approach which arbitrarily states that god made men bigger and stronger than women so they could rule over them!
