Human rights?

humanrightsI’m one of the most privileged people on the planet.
I identify myself as male, over middle age, slightly over weight, caucasian, straight (asexual), in a modern western society who lives alone in a to big house with only a dog as company.
Most of my friends from my youth are dead so I talk to people online.

Half of this planets inhabitants identify as female and because of that(!) they get less pay, less education and are looked upon as some kind of furniture that goes with the house or something.
There are all kinds of people that identify as different colors, cultures and so on.
There are also groups of people that identify as a member of one of the LGBT-groups or doesn’t want a label at all.

To the point!
It amazes me when media tells us “middle-eastern women will not get an education”, “western women don’t get the same pay and/or rights as the male persons doing the same job”, “HBTQ people aren’t allowed to love and/or marry who they like”, people being harrased, killed and even hunted in the streets and so on because of who they love and who they are?!

Why do we (I’m included in this) rob these people of their HUMAN rights?
Religion and the religious cultures is a big part of this.
Over half the population on the planet has less human rights than the rest of us…?!

It’s 2017 now and we’re still doing this shit?
