I fear that the most important “diversity” thing that matters is class, and it’s the one that’s largely ignored because, well, people at that end of socioeconomic spectrum aren’t engaged in these discussions.

The sheer dishonesty. Ayaan has changed her view on this, as *very clearly* outlined in her last book, in which she endorsed reform. In part, through conversation with people who held opposing views like me. It’s called dialogue. Please all, tell this numpty that

The Iranian regimes segregation of the sexes in society deserves contempt and ridicule. Iranian women have the right to be as excited or as bored watching football in the company of fellow spectators or viewers at a venue. Give mullahs the red card.

Ah yes, four months in prison for multiple accusations of rape. Precisely the same as 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread for your starving family.

US decision to withdraw from the Human Rights Council is regrettable. Reform necessary, but UK is here to stay - crucial to holding states to account

I’m conscious though not everyone does, the odds were too great for my brother to overcome who will be dependent on me and other caregivers for the rest of his life. His love of life, and that he is still with us, are the best achievement I could ever wish to celebrate.

My infants school headmaster wrote me off telling my parents I would never complete school. That burned a desire to prove him the fool he thought I was. Getting my degree at Exeter meant so much, and still does so many years later. Congratulations to those who beat the odds.

You are mistaken, Senator Cotton. Here is the relevant text from the bill that explicitly lays out how families can still be separated and/or detained when child trafficking is suspected. Why are you lying about the contents of the ?
