Pakistan Gets $10 Million for Gender Programs

Remember the $2.5 trillion spending bill passed by Congress the other week? There’s a lot of pork in it. One of the most egregious examples is the money Pakistan will get for “gender programs.” Congress is sending no less than $10 million to the Pakistanis to help them better understand gender issues. But were the Pakistanis somehow confused about gender? Did they even ask for this aid?  The $10 million appropriation isn’t just wasteful, it’s morally controversial. America has exported many things that are good around the world—namely the values of liberty and the rule of law. But lately, the exporting of postmodern ideas and moral confusion has caused harm and this latest controversial aid will surely garner resentment within this conservative middle eastern nation.
