Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”

This is called a nath, a traditional Indian/South Asian piece of jewelry, usually worn during weddings or cultural celebrations that have to do with the South Asian culture.
Regardless of how ‘cute’ or ‘flawless’ Kendall may look here, her wearing the nath is cultural appropriation and it’s not something she really has the right to wear. Her wearing it as a casual daily piece of jewelry is disrespectful to the history and meaning behind the nath and it shouldn’t be something that should be praised or encouraged.
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
