Er der nogen der tror, at Islam og muslimer skulle være mere kvindeundertrykkende end fx visse kristne kulturer?
Læs Mark Morford’s kommentar og fortvivl:
Very Well. Let us now trace the path of imminent cultural destruction: Virgin girl has zero experience with the joys of her own body, with orgasm, with men, with sex toys or shower heads or good gynecological gizmongery. She then marries a man who will very likely have not the slightest clue (as he has had the same dreadful sexual miseducation as our fair virgin) as to what to do with a woman’s body, who will, by most all accounts, be unable to tell an erogenous zone from an elbow, a clitoris from a belly button.

Two wrongs doesn’t make a right… Men nogen gange hjælper den ene trosretnings idioti med at sætte den andens i relief… Problemet er ikke Islam. Problemet er idioti. Hvor ville verden dog være et bedre sted hvis flere tog Douglas Adams‘ ord til sig:
First of all I do not believe-that-there-is-not-a-god. I don’t see what belief has got to do with it. I believe or don’t believe my four-year old daughter when she tells me that she didn’t make that mess on the floor. […] I also believe that England should enter the European Monetary Union.[…] These seem to me to be legitimate uses for the word believe. As a carapace for the protection of irrational notions from legitimate questions, however, I think that the word has a lot of mischief to answer for. So, I do not believe-that-there-is-no-god. I am, however, convinced that there is no god, which is a totally different stance and takes me on to my second reason.
[…] God used to be the best explanation we’d got, and we’ve now got vastly better ones. God is no longer an explanation of anything, but has instead become something that would itself need an insurmountable amount of explaining. So I don’t think that being convinced that there is no god is as irrational or arrogant a point of view as belief that there is. I don’t think the matter calls for even-handedness at all.
