An amazing discussion about the oppression of women by the Muslim faith

An extremely powerful image demonstrating the oppression of women by the Muslim faith

Islam’s oppression of women

Interview with the photographer:

Boushra Almutawakel’s work: A photographic exploration of life in Yemen

And a discussion on Reddit:

The Evolution of Extremism: The Vanishing Role of Women in Islamic Society.

Several of the comments:

You often hear Muslims say it is a sign of respect but to me it is a legitimization of rape. If you don’t wear the burqa muslim men have the right to rape you. Says something about muslim men more than it does about the women…

I have to say, it’s much easier being tolerant of Islam before actually visiting an Islamic country than after. Many of the men I talked to were very misogynistic. They were very pushy with women in our group and rarely understood the concept of women telling them no. The idea that the hijab is respectful is bullshit, it’s purely to demonstrate that they are property and without it, the animalistic men would just take them due to their “inability” to control themselves.

what’s scary is how this extremism is spreading into western culture. for example women in the full black dress and eye veil (second to last image) are very prevalent where I am from in England. Women fought for the right to be equal here and this extremism is offensive and shouldn’t be allowed.

    islam is crazy. if we didn’t need the oil, we could just leave them islamic, countryfied, goatherder, fuckers alone. without the petro money, they would be irrelevant. it’s hard to cause trouble without $$. even if they did, they wouldn’t be too hard to handle.

    just like the xtian bullshit, we cannot allow the islam crap, period. practice that shit in private. if you see them beating the kids, press charges. mistreat women, curse them out. them chauvinists?need to recognize. allah, schmalla.

    “if we didn’t need the oil”

    And we wouldn’t need if the Dems and their environmental lobbyist would let us get our own.

    They don’t want to leave them alone in the name of a tree. That is even more crazy.

    “if you see them beating the kids, press charges.”

    I agree with alex. Head on over to Iran and press charges.

    in other words, if you see lou molesting kids, or beating his wife or bombing a clinic, let him be. his god handle him.

    Well Lou, you pretty much summed up your stupidity in that one statement there. It wouldn’t matter if we destroyed all our natural resources to get at every last drop of oil in U.S. territory – it STILL wouldn’t eliminate our dependence on foreign oil. So basically you want to chop off your own foot to feed yourself for a few days – why don’t you give that a try and see where it gets you.

    Not to mention all his other statements in which he demonstrates it.

    Bri,

    So you are OK with other nations destroying all their natural resources to get at every last drop of oil? Think you are pretty superior, huh? How arrogant of you Bri.

    You summed up your stupidity by being one of the whack jobs. Some facts for Bri: Top suppliers to the US

    CANADA
    SAUDI ARABIA
    MEXICO
    VENEZUELA
    NIGERIA
    COLOMBIA

    Did you notice how many are from the Middle East? Let me count for you. One (1)

    If we just tap 5-10% of our untapped oil we wouldn’t need any oil from the Middle East. We have enough to supply our needs for 400 yrs according to many geologist. But guys like Carter and Obama like to use the excuse it wouldn’t help us right now. Another lie.

    Education is the key Bri, stop being a twit.

    Oh let me add. Muslims are oppressing woman at the greatest rate in years. Notice who Obama keeps putting in power in the newest regimes in the Middle East? Yes, no other than the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama loves a good Muslim. Obama has started the war on woman in a serious way.

    lou, you are a moron. your previous postings leave no doubt. all your rants don’t mean shit. get over it.
    you got no god proof whatsoever and you insist on diverting attention from your lack. get the fuck out of here.

    go ahead, bring attention to my lack of punctuation, grammar, and spelling. that’s all you got. just like your god, nothing.

    The simple fact that Lou is of the opinion that President Obama “keeps putting in power in the newest regimes in the Middle East? Yes, no other than the Muslim Brotherhood.”
    You think the POTUS controls elections in Egypt? And that he not only PUT the Muslim Brotherhood in power, but that he somehow has been doing it for a while (keeps putting)?
    Moron does not really do his level of stupidity justice. But really, what do you expect from someone who thinks an invisible man is his best friend, evolution is a conspiracy to hide the fact that man was created from mud, and humans and dinosaurs once lived together about 5 thousand years ago?
    Or maybe he doesn’t believe that… I don’t think “A” has actually ever said if he thinks his other Christian brethren are deluded or not. He has hinted he thinks Muslims are crazy, and presumably all other non-christians, and certainly atheists, and perhaps a good percentage of “other” christians… but of course HE has it all perfectly right, and is not crazy at all…….
    Kind of tragic, actually.

    More good news Lou. Libya will soon be run by the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama is ecstatic.
    What thrills me the most is how Barack invites the MB to the White House on a regular basis. Explains why Obama is such a anti-semite.

    you fucking pussy. just say it, obama is the kenyan born negro, who’s after your white women and not fit to be POTUS. quit your cowardice, obama is the worst.

    now, is that your evidence? asshole.

    10 A
    Why don’t you go to some “political” blog (White Power? KKK?)?
    I don’t give a shit about why should I care why is Obama ecstatic or exalted?

    Christianity and Islam are the two sides of the same shit, and shit stinks from both sides.

    Read Bible?
    There was something about women rights.

    When I see that pathological liar and propagandizing halfwit, Ken Ham, feeding inane falsehoods into the innocent and easily influenced little minds of our children, I’m more determined than ever to continue my battle, with the help of the ACLU., to get Ham to abide by the Constitution and repay the taxpayers who were robbed and coerced into helping pay for that museum of comedy about little Tammy riding her pet raptor, Todd, around the yard while daddy and mommy do the weekend chores. Have you ever picked up a weeks worth of raptor waste? And besides Tammy’s little brother, what do raptors eat?
    My favorite is the old redundant line asked by the creepy, meaty faced Ham, “Kids, did your grandaddy look like this?” And up on the large screen all can see a chimp with a top hat. Ham, just because your granddaddy looked like that (though I doubt anyone in your family was ever that attractive) it doesn’t mean it right, and to say pure inanity like that to maintain a six figure salary is absolutely sinful and borders on the criminal. I wonder if your devilish little minded friend, Kent Hovind, could use a roommate? I mean cellmate.

    Ahhh, religion does such beautiful wonders for the evil minds of the twisted and delusional freaks, like the racist, hate mongering Alex. Keep it up Al, we’re having another great laughing jag here at the office of, well, none of your business, but like I said-keep it coming and you may see a few of us coming up your stairs.

    My apologies, last comment was directed to Lou, not Alex. SORRY.

    Speaking of sexual mutilation and the fictional Moses, I wonder if he volunteered to lay his wee willie on a rock and let some freak have at it with a hatchet? LOL. Maybe that’s how he was able to father one more ancient mammal in the sweltering, mind melting desert at the age of 98. LOL. Does the nonsense ever stop?

    Islam is evil. It oppresses and murders those who do not comply. No different than the USSR/China and their oppression of Christians. Both equally evil.
