    Parts of the Muslim world (secular and non secular) have degraded women to a far greater degree. Forced non-hijab laws in the workplace, the cosmetics and clothing industry, nearly every Saudi law, illiteracy promotion, lower educational opportunities. All on nominal Muslim societies.
    I suppose this shirt may be a hypocritical and patronizing element in a non-Muslim context, but let’s not miss the forest for the trees here. It didn’t begin or end with this.

    It doesn’t matter where such a law extended from, some Muslim societies do it, that’s the point.
    Also, every society has minimum clothing laws, and if that minimum is hijab, so be it. I don’t see the moral equivalency you’re making.
     
    But this is all off topic. The point is that Muslim societies, through many mechanisms (imported or from jahil culture), have degraded the female gender just like the “Western” world has.

    An hour straight? Most people I know have it on all day and periodically check it for a few minutes here and there throughout the day. The devotion to this thing is tremendous!

    Salaam everybody:
    As part of my promise of making this site more inclusive and personable, I have decided to create a thread that is dedicated to YOU. The rules of the thread are as follows:
    1. Pick one member to dedicate. Please type their name in bold along with the "@" with their name, so we can visit their profile if we wish. Please include their profile picture as well.
    2. Discuss why you like the member, their positive attributes, and anecdotes of reflection.
    3. A member can only be dedicated ONCE. So you have to check to make sure they haven't been covered already.
    4. You can't dedicate someone who has dedicated you. Pick someone else!
    5. Like all posts! To prove we all appreciate that member.
    6. Make sure nobody gets left out!  Preference should be given to more current, relatively active members, but anyone is welcome.
     
    With all that said, I will go first. And my obvious choice (sorry guys, but he's taken):
    baradar_jackson @baradar_jackson

    Baradar is a very dear friend of mine, and one of my closest over all these years. We share similar viewpoints, mentalities, and personal characteristics. He's the only member (so far) that I'm "following" on the forum. But that's not what makes him special.
    It's his invaluable contributions to the life and spirit of this forum. The raw emotion and genuineness he puts into every post and communication. What you see is what you get. You get things unfiltered, but with a purpose. He's not a dramatist for dramatist sake, nor is he a rebel without a cause. He puts the value of feeling at the forefront, shattering the obfuscating walls of double speak, false intellectualism, and unbridled egotism. He's made many mistakes in most facets, but these only serve to educate us on the fragile but growing spirit within us all, and in the human race. He's our mirror.
    Sure, he can be stubborn at times. There are games I wish he would play, and some things I wish he was more open minded towards. But he's a young man, and he never lets you forget that. He can be rough at times, he can be too direct at times, and you wish he would tone it down on occasion, but he is who he is. And that kind of authenticity is a valuable commodity, especially in this cold, depressing, virtual world of keyboard trolls and warped souls.
    I salute you.

    Let's get rolling with some more:
    hameedeh @hameedeh
    If each member's value to the forum was quantified, hameedeh would be the only billionaire on this forum. She is not simply part of this forum, she IS this forum. She serves virtually every positive role you can imagine, from administrator, welcomer, supporter, adviser, enforcer, thinker, creative developer, along a host of many official and unofficial duties.
    She has proven to me that single individuals CAN make a difference, CAN inspire the masses in positive directions, and CAN literally lift the entire spirit of a community upside down. Her presence on this forum single handedly retained my faith and trust in this site, showing me that anything is possible, that the cycles of pessimism, cynicism, despair, and bad feelings can be eradicated and overturned from the very ingrained core that rests in most of our hearts, and I speak for myself above all else.
    I'm not being overly dramatic, and there is no need to be. Her actions speak for themselves. The promptness. The amicability. The detail-oriented, people-oriented, and process-oriented approach. The reliability and dependability that few deliver, and even fewer deliver consistently. But make no mistake, she does not put her herself on any pedestal of uniqueness. Other than her official duties as an administrator, we are all capable of following her example, and could do exactly what she does if we wished. In a subtle way, I think that's her main message. That we can do as well. I'm sure "Yes we can" has been her motto way before a few certain other people.
    She's one of the few people who was given her own appreciation thread (sorry for bringing it back):
    http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235033132-hameedeh-appreciation-thread/
    My only fear is to take her for granted, which I feel can be very easy to do.
    I salute you.

    Nobody said it would be easy, but it has to be done. Research into alternative energy will be ongoing. 
      For what exactly? What's the gain? And for who?
    In other words, "children, shut up and everything will be ok". 
    This is a big misconception, and is completely false. Tiny individual feel-good actions to reduce the carbon footprint will have an overall negligible impact. The only solutions are policies on the macro industrial and governmental level, with international cooperation.

    Unfortunately, the ignore function is dysfunctional, and has been for a while. I tried fixing it in the backend, but nothing can be done. 
    Maybe in a later system update.
