Read Flesh is Grass on the treatment of women around the world, and what is more surprising is how little indignation is found in the West over these brutal and barbaric examples.

I suspect that Universalism is often seen to apply to Western countries only, but a certain type of lazy racism, that racism of low expectations and reverse colonial thinking is partly to blame.
