Protecting Albino Children

For generations, albinos have suffered because of the belief some countries and people have that leads them to hunt, kill and dismember albinos in the hope of ‘hitting the jackpot’ – that is, getting rich – which is outright cruel.

According to Wikipedia, Albinism in humans is a congenital disorder characterized by the complete or partial absence of pigment (color) in the skin, hair and eyes. Albinism is also associated with a number of vision defects.

Lack of skin pigmentation makes a person more susceptible to sunburn, skin cancers and infection.

The Stigma behind the Question “Are you gay?”

(Homosexuality)
Ma Tee is always asked this question more often than usual: “Are you a lesbian?”

Maybe it’s her dress code; she likes dressing like a boy. As a result she finds herself dressing more “boy-ish” than like a girl. Although she is the first to tell you she is a natural tomboy, but whenever people stare at Ma Tee and start whispering before the question pops up again, she always politely responds: “No, I am not gay.”
