About Me

I am female and I have rights, just like any other person.

I believe in #Equalism.

I believe in human rights, for every person made on this earth. We were born without being able to make that decision, being born was a decision made for us. Some were born in a perfectly healthy condition, some were not. Some were born with mental health problems leading them into making decisions others wouldn't make. They ended up all alone on the streets or incarcerated, and the human rights they once had were taken away from them. I want to stand up for those who were born and meant to be evil, who are running desperately in a world were problems like these are being ignored, because the world sees it as a decision they made, when they were actually never given a chance from birth. When people make mistakes they should be punished, but the question is 'how'? Will they become better after torture, losing human rights and no contact with family? Or are they better off with rehabilitation, prevention and their human rights? And if they are better off, are the people who were born without any of their conditions, also better off? When we help them, we help ourselves, we help the future become a better place where no matter what, human rights always come first.
