Obviously, you can’t hold the concept of what’s “right” from culture to culture. It’s not about comparing the standards of one culture to another. Let’s get that out of the way. it has NOTHING to do with that. I’m saying this first, because it’s the hobby of the Internet to jump to conclusions about what people are talking about.
Now for proper context, what I’m asking is, is it alright to show criticisms for culture or belief systems when you are trying to present facts and accuracy about them?
But for one of my current WIPS, I am torn between trying to give proper details about modern life of a country, and avoiding trying to paint things too negatively. Treating negative aspects of a culture like they don’t really exist seems kind off in my mind, and obviously, OBVIOUSLY, I’m trying to focus more heavily on the positive aspects anyway.
Now, I don’t even mind changing things if people don’t want to hear it, but I would be lying if I didn’t say a little bit of me wasn’t leaning towards wanting to hear that people would at least want to learn as much as they can about other cultures, even if it isn’t always positive.
