Are some cultures objectively better than others?

Hello, I often get into conversations with other liberal-minded folk and one thing that really annoys me is how most liberals go out of their way to state that all cultures have their positives and negatives and that we shouldn't be ethnocentric. I disagree. For instance, I firmly believe: -A culture that values gender equality is objectively better than one that works to keep women subjugated. -A culture that values gay rights is objectively better than one that attempts to treat them as 2nd class citizens, or worse, a capital crime. -A culture that values secularism in government is objectively better than one that promotes one religion at the expense of others (on non-religion). -A culture that values diversity is objectively better than one that values one race or group above another. -A culture that has legalized slavery is objectively worse than a culture where slavery is outlawed. I could go on and on, but that's the gist of it. What say you? Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
