    A drag queen and a muslim sit together on the NY subway.

    No ... not the start of a joke; a viral photo.

    What do you think?

    I thInk too much was made of it, especially by the original poster who said "this is the world liberals want". Why anyone would think that a women dressed to appease the religious male bigotry of her country, is in anyway liberalist idealism, is nuts.

    Actually, I took it (the picture) to represent diversity.

    So yeah, I guess it is the world liberals want. Bring everyone to the table, leave no one behind. Too many fundamentalist Christians want a white, Anglo-Saxon world dominated by men and will be happy with nothing else. That idea is just anti-Christian and ancient.

    If "the world liberals want" is diversity, then you (assuming you see yourself as a "liberal" in this context, already have it. The issue I have with this flavour of liberalism is that it's roots are in the same wishy-washy ideology of the love and peace era of the 1960s.

    The photo in the OP was originally published by a non-liberal trying to make a cheap point about cross-dressing and the burka, but it backfired and rightly so.

    I think it's sad that we've come so far and yet these things still go viral. If you get what I mean.
