It's just a distraction from the real issues!
This tranny-looking motherfucker right here
is just sick and tired (maybe literally shaking) that someone dares to criticize Islamist treatment of women. That's not feminism
she says (because her kind of feminism isn't concerned with petty things like stoning 13-year-old rape victims
to death.) She has much bigger fish to fry than underaged arranged marriages, hanging to death of fags and trannies, and outright murder of rape victims and women who refuse rape.http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/22/this-isnt-feminism-its-islamophobia
This isn't 'feminism'. It's Islamophobia
If I were a feminist woman I'd be phobic as fuck about Islam.
I am infuriated by white men stirring up anti-Muslim prejudice to derail debate on western sexism
What about black men, or white women, or black women who think that the way Muslim men treat women is all kinds of fucked up? Are they "derailing" your precious debate on Western sexism? Can your tiny little brain address only one thing at a time?
As a person who writes about women's issues, I am constantly being told that Islam is the greatest threat to gender equality in this or any other country – mostly by white men, who always know best. This has been an extraordinary year for feminism, but from the Rochdale grooming case to interminable debates over whether traditional Islamic dress is "empowering" or otherwise, the rhetoric and language of feminism has been co-opted by Islamophobes, who could not care less about women of any creed or colour.
Islam absolutely is the greatest threat to gender equality anywhere in the world
and you've done nothing to dispute that in your entire verbal diarrhea of an article. Your ad hominem argument ("white men say this is true so it must be false") is utterly unconvincing and totally without merit.
Let's talk about the Rochdale grooming case
you mentioned in which a bunch of Pakistani Muslims ran a child sex ring abusing the white girls in the town. Check out how the press uses "Pakistani-heritage" as a code word for "fucking scumbag Muslim slime". Check out how the press blames the police
for the abuse, implicitly absolving the abusers themselves of guilt.
The UK is indeed pozzed as fuck
The recent blanket coverage of the "gender segregation on campus" story was a textbook case. This month Student Rights, a pressure group not run by students, released a report vastly exaggerating a suggestion by Universities UK that male and female students might be asked to sit separately in some lectures led by Islamic guest speakers. Many Asian women's groups and individual Muslim feminists joined the subsequent protests, sometimes taking personal risks to do so. Unfortunately, rightwing commentators and tabloids seized upon the issue to imply that Islamic extremists are taking over the British academy.
Translation: Islamic speakers at UK Universities (and much of the pozzed faculty) were requiring that women and men be seated separately because Mudslimes can't be expected to keep their dicks in their pants if a woman is near by (and it's her fault and problem to deal with.) Student Rights
protested and got the dumb ass rule overturned but there might be a few cis white heteronormative gender-binary males in that group therefore the result sucks and women should be forced to wear head coverings and sit in the back of the room what are you an Islamophobe?! Now that's Feminism!
It's the dishonesty that angers me most. It's the hypocrisy of men claiming to stand for women's rights while appropriating our language of liberation to serve their own small-minded agenda. Far-right groups like the English Defence League and the British National party rush to condemn crimes against women committed by Muslim men, while fielding candidates who make claims like "women are like gongs – they need to be struck regularly".
Some of their members tell me that since they are standing against the sexism of Muslim barbarians, as a feminist I should be on their side. When I disagree, I am invariably informed I deserve be shipped to Afghanistan and stoned to death.
Lol at the gong quote, but lol even more at the notion that everyone critical of Islam's treatment of women is BNP / EDL / thinks women should be beaten. Her only example is some BNP candidate (who was removed from the list of BNP candidates after he said it) but this idiot hell fucker concludes that all Western white men want to beat women but Islam is not a problem for women or feminism. Excuse me Mr. Forest? Have you seen any trees around here?
Dishonesty indeed. I've had about all I can take of this article without significant gin martini intake so I'll leave you to read more and puke as necessary.
More to come.
