If you're from the West, it's time that you stop the garbage and stand up for your native culture. All cultures are not equal.
If you're from a culture where women are forced to wear outfits that make them look like the ghosts in Pacman, think that circumcision on pre-teens while they're fully conscious is okay, and that killing girls because they kiss somebody of a different religion is okay, then my culture is better than yours. Period.
If you're from a culture where rape is literally a way of life and practiced regularly on the populace at large, then my culture is better than yours. Period.
If you're from a culture where baby fetuses are aborted and baby girls are abandoned by the millions because of some ridiculous old dowry tradition that's illegal, then my culture is better than yours. Period.
Having said that, Western culture has some very serious flaws that need to be addressed pronto. Being too tolerant of cultures that would take us back to the brutality and social norms of Bronze Age nomad cultures is one of them.
