As far as I can recall, I have never approved of President Erdogan’s actions, but he gets a thumb’s up on this one.

You are a one trick pony, Vera. This attitude actually sets women back. Makes them look like fragile little princesses you are not allowed to contradict (that includes have a serious debate with) lest you get demonized as some despicable sexist monster.

Besides, Russia will be joined by China, Iran, and a number of other smaller nations in the coming WW III. Unless as yet unforeseen forces… Read more »

Does that mean Spanish bullfighters are subservient to bulls? I had no idea the color red expressed humility and subservience? I always thought of it as projecting daring and aggression.
