You fought for our freedom? Um, don’t think so.

So I clicked on one of the embedded videos on a Facebook page supporting the truckers’ protest, and this young guy rambled on and on about how he fought in Afghanistan for our freedom …  Um, don’t think so.

I was free before you went to Afghanistan.  I had freedom of thought, freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom of/from religion …   I have the freedom to vote, to get an education, to get a driver’s licence, to open a bank account,  to get a job, to own property,  to get an abortion …  And most of those freedoms were fought for, and won, by second-wave feminists.  Not you.

I don’t know why you went to Afghanistan to kill a bunch of people, but it wasn’t for me.
