Via Hot Air head­lines whats more funny than read­ing a fem­i­nist mak­ing a fool of her­self defend­ing rad­i­cal Islam and blam­ing the cri­tiques of its misog­yny on “White Men”?

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.

Get­ting to the end of it and see­ing after she talked about gen­der seg­re­ga­tion protests being inflamed by the right and see­ing this adden­dum that had been tacked on after the fact.

This arti­cle was amended to draw atten­tion to the fact that many Mus­lim and Asian women were involved in the “gen­der seg­re­ga­tion” protests

You can’t make this stuff up, or rather you don’t have to.

Inci­den­tally Laura Wil­son was not avail­able for com­ment, nor was Shafilea Ahmed or any of the 200 miss­ing girls of Bradford

Via Hot Air headlines whats more funny than reading a feminist making a fool of herself  defending radical Islam and blaming the critiques of its misogyny on “White Men”?

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.
