"People are saying that it's a form of family planning," she says. "We tell them that if the government wanted to, they could add birth control into anything, into the water, in to the food."

They could even spray it high in the atmosphere...

It's too bad the CIA had a "hepatitis vaccination team" looking for OBL in Pakistan a few years back.  Clearly the UN polio vaccinators are spies.

The children are said to be looking forward to their followups in 13148.7 hours.

Hero? I had to work today for 90 minutes on one of my two days off, and being salaried I wasn't paid. Where's my hero tag?

It's easy to find the polio spies. Just yell "markio!" and listen for where someone responds.

Hm. Some of the stuff I do that I consider fairly impressive... I guess she would consider pretty blasé.

So tell my why, when there's actual heroes like this wonderful woman in the world, I'm supposed to feel sympathy when a morbidly obese western woman is "fat shamed" when her doctor suggests that she lose some weight?

Sure she is. Her body count is over 6,200 and still climbing.

Good point. If you feel anything but contempt for a Jezebel "writer", you need to see a Psychiatrist, post haste.

I already told you, Noor.

Fatty no more? She gets a "hero" tag for losing some weight?
What is Fark coming to?

Finally an appropriate use of the Hero tag.

Really though good for her, tough job thanks to the usual bullshiat that the CIA pull and ignorant motherfarkers thinking everyone would be fine if it weren't for those damn doctors infecting everyone.

With 60 vaccinators killed, yeah, I'd have body armor on under that burkha.

Perhaps stamping out contagious diseases might be more relevant to you?

It's not a reaction that I'm especially proud of, but Damn, those Pakistanis have a farked up culture. 30% of adult men think it's perfectly acceptable to molest little boys. And killing vaccinators is apparently OK with a lot of them as well.

I can't help thinking that if it weren't for laws and traditions that we developed during the Age of Enlightenment (17th cent), Fundamentalist Christians would be doing the same awful things that the Fundamentalist Muslims are doing today.....

Kind of makes you wonder what kinds of things your society tolerates that would horrify others.

/and I'm not talking about freedom of speech
 
2014-08-04 08:24:07 AM  
Finally, a legitimate use of the "Hero" tag -- a tip of the hat to Ms. Noor and the other health workers risking their lives.

Places like Pakistan don't deserve people like Ms. Noor.  She's doing the hardest possible thing---trying to improve the lives of people who would rather kill her than avoid getting polio.

brimed03: Kind of makes you wonder what kinds of things your society tolerates that would horrify others.

Actually, that's the main thing that horrifies honor/shame cultures. The ability to mock the fanatically faithful and politically powerful might as well be some mind-shattering Lovecraftian abomination in a culture where image is everything and reality is believed to be random and meaningless.

/of course, you want to believe they all are logical, rational thinkers like you imagine yourself to be
//problem is, not even a meaningful minority of them are
///neither, for that matter, are you

The United States has a farked up culture, too.  Have you taken a good look at this country lately?  Would you advocate that we shouldn't get vaccinated because doing so saves American lives?

That's a very helpful dementor.
