Anyone who thinks a piece of news about the world becoming LESS discriminatory and hostile is “woke politics” might need more than an uplifting news subreddit in their lives. Just saying… Edited to add: this is some basic humanity and dignity stuff and I am glad to see a (still very religious) country take this step. You might even call it…uplifting!

First steps are so underappreciated. Just because this won’t cause instant widespread tolerance doesn’t mean its not a huge milestone to be celebrated. It’s great news and will start a shift in the region, however slow.
