Different cultural environments in general don't say something about

In e.g. Russia the homophobia issue isn't there because leaders made
laws. The laws are more or less as liberal as in Western Europe. I
don't depreciate other cultures for being different.

However, if you're working with people from different cultural
environments, as I sometimes do, e.g. with children from more than 40
nations, you can't do it without taking care about the existing
differences. If Turkish and Kurd children or adolescents have a dispute
and you are the responsible helper, you should be aware about the
cultural differences.

Ignoring differences doesn't change anything. Being aware about
differences and speaking about it, does change the world.

And just because in your world view people whoa are different are
idiots, doesn't mean that I think that narrow-minded too.

cultures, without making assumptions.
