For Linda Grant, the novelist, who says that “feminism” is the one “ism” she has not given up on, it was a shocking sight: “What you’re seeing is an alliance of what used to be the far left with various Muslim groups and that poses real problems. Saturday’s march was not a peace march in the way that the Ban the Bomb marches were. Seeing young and old white women holding Hezbollah placards showed that it’s a very different anti-war movement to Greenham. Part of it feels the wrong side is winning.”
In America the radical feminist Andrea Dworkin died last year virtually unmourned by women on the left in part, as her friend Christopher Hitchens remembered, because “she wasn’t neutral against a jihadist threat that wanted, and wants, to enslave and torture females.
“That she could be denounced as a ‘conservative’,” he concluded, “says much about the left to which she used to belong.”
These wimmin haven’t a clue.
Feminism is the ruin of the West.

Andrea Dworkin… LOL!
I checked the Wikipedia entry for her and found a link to this article:
“Andrea Dworkin and her supporters claim she has been a victim of a smear campaign from opponents who distort and mischaracterize her claims about sex. The best way to get to the truth, of course, is go to the source and examine what Dworkin actually wrote. Unfortunately for Dworkin, once you sit down and read her work in depth she comes across as far more bizarre than even the occasionally out-of-context quotes from her writing makes her appear.”
“More bizarre” includes supporting incest and bestiality.

All this women oppression, strangely enough, is all due to religion and not from the islamic country’s laws.
In Iran for example a woman is free to divorce her husband if she wants to. Although the consequences are pretty bad for them because in islamic countries “virginity” is a must if a woman wants to marry. It’s very unlikely she’s still be a virgin after a divorce.
Divorced women are contemptible at best and despised at worst in islam.
A woman who loses her virginity before marriage can find herself in great peril, as the family condemns them as “Harlots”.
Another thing I remember is when Hillary Clinton organised a womens conference in china.
She found out the existence of the “Death rooms” where abandon newborn girls met their death by neglect. Then she decided to change all that. I don’t know if she succeeded.
The western feminists will find themselves in dangerous grounds if they seek to influence the present status, because, islamic men are now so radicalized now that anything is seen as western oppression, hence unlikely to succeed.

Actually, the business of oppression of women in islamic countries is more to do with tribal and cultural customs than the laws of the state and religion.
Interestingly, UK and USA are the number one countries muslims want to settle in, because they believe they can practice their religion without interference from the state and can abandon the burden of cultural/tribal baggage.
Throughout the world, it’s not just muslim men who are becoming more radicalized, but muslim women and girls too, particularly on university campuses. It’s a sort of radical muslim feminism, but the targets of their criticisms are usually not the men, but the usual stuff – Israel/Palestine, Iraq, islamic leaders who are puppets of the west, etc.

Over here they have this “codepink: women say no to war” thing, on International Women’s Day there were marches to pull the troops out of Iraq. You can see the self-serving diatribe of a petition here:
Among (many) others two of their demands are:
– The withdrawal of all foreign troops and foreign fighters from Iraq;
– The full representation of women in the peacemaking process and a commitment to women’s full equality in the post-war Iraq;
I don’t suppose it matters that if the troops are pulled out a conservative islamic state will come to power, thus making these two demands completely contradictory.
More pointless whinging from women with the only tangible motivation being self-serving ego expansion.

holy shit ,can it get any worse than islamic feminazi?
i know islamic men would welcome feminism like a rocket launcher up the ass,
strangelyenough ,feminism , it lies and social destructive effect is not a bad argument to convert a country to islam.

Friend, it’ll take a lot more than feminism for converting to Islam to start looking like a good idea.

think about it ,4 maybe 5 wives ,almost impossible for them to divorce you.
a man would be treated like a god in his own home,
i wouldnt want an extremist nation ,but more of a mild form of islamic government ,like indonesia.
but i think that we should be very aware that islamic men are backed hard into a corner at the moment .and therefor very dangerous.we as fellow men should be warning them about the evils of feminism.
or perhaps we should encourage the feminists to push harder into islamic countrys and sit back and watch all hell break loose.they would crush feminism with an iron fist ,setting the ground work for us to do the same .

What is worse,to be governed by Islam or feminists.I think it ought to be decided because mens groups are losing out against feminism,it is too rooted throughout the media.
