that is an AMAZING story.she was a hero.She most likely wasnt elected for the nobel peace prize because Obama is a male...its something we have to live with.I know its not mans fault as a whole but it is rediculous.
Jessica Shavon Tague You know what I hate? I hate women who feel that everything slightly unjust is sexist. IF SHED HAVE BEEN A GUY... shed have STILL been fucked over by politics. wake up to reality woman. he didnt win over her for being a "male" he won over her cause the system is corrupt. fucking morons.
first of all,fuck you.Second,there is still sexism all over the world.And racism.It's a fact.And slightly unjust?No it is not slightly anything.You have to admit that sometimes it shows throughout the system that men are the favored sex.Not because they are more smart,but because its just always been that way and certain older people don't like change.I'm not saying all men are sexist,I know their not.But I am saying that some older men see women as less then they see men.and its not everything,I NEVER said that.Men nowadays are starting to improve in including women.Despite the get back to the kitchen and make me a sandwhich jokes...Oiii
Actually, she was a social worker. She was nominated in 2007 for the Nobel. Her story was made into a Hallmark movie starring Anna Paquin. Very worth watching.
It's funny, the thought that this might be sexist never crossed my mind. Possibly it's because that's the least important thing out of all of this. The fact that she didn't get the prize is most important. I wouldn't have cared if she was a disabled gay black male, because that has nothing to do with what she did. Assuming this image is correct, she did some amazing things and it's terrible she didn't get the prize.
I like how she did it all solely for the kids & because it was morally right but everyone is all moaning about how she needed a material possession before she died. Seems we are a people that base our worth and validity off of trinkets & the fact that someone else got one instead of us. That's basic human psychology for ya; The teacher gave him the gold star for the day and I didn't get one, so I feel left out and cheated. Heh... It's sad when an authority with a so-called rare possession can flip a switch in our minds that way. That's all it usually takes for humans. Anyway, screw materialism. Your acts of valor validate & give you true worth, not a medal -- & certainly not someone else getting the medal instead. This isn't a sport. I highly doubt that she was saying to herself " Man, I sure do hope I get a big, shiny medal one day for doing my best to save all of these kids!" You know why? Because she was too busy saving the kids and getting her limbs broken. Sure, she deserves more than just a movie, dudelol.com post, & various media sound-bites, but so do a lot of unsung heroes out there that will never get more. I highly doubt that any of them with her heroism cares about medal recognition one way the other, especially when put against the lives of children. But anyways, have fun living under your authoritative mind control, everyone!
