I had thought about posting on the radical feminist group FEMEN previously, but I always wound up choosing something else.
I did, though, find this particular one noteworthy:
"Conservatives who ask where the international outrage is over human rights abuses in Islamic countries are about to get their answer. In a grand display, feminist activists from the Ukrainian women’s group Femen held “International Topless Jihad Day” in major European cities including Berlin, Kiev and Paris.
With their bodies painted with slogans such as, “bare breasts against Islamism,” the activists protested outside of mosques in each of their host cities.
“We’re free, we’re naked, it’s our right, it’s our body, it’s our rules, and nobody can use religion, and some other holy things, to abuse women, to oppress them,” Femen member Alexandra Shevchenko said while demonstrating outside a Berlin mosque in freezing temperatures.
“And we’ll fight against them. And our boobs will be stronger than their stones.”
The more anger a woman nurses towards men, the more likely it is that she will limit her demonstrations to places that are products of Western societies. There she can do whatever she wants knowing that the bad Western guys won't hurt her.
Some, though, have put more thought into their priorities.
"American writer Phyllis Chesler has sharply criticized her sisters in books such as The Death of Feminism. She feels that too many feminists have abandoned their commitment to freedom and “become cowardly herd animals and grim totalitarian thinkers,” thus failing to confront Islamic terrorism. She paints a portrait of current U.S. University campuses as steeped in “a new and diabolical McCarthyism” spearheaded by leftist rhetoric.
Chesler has a point. Judging from the rhetoric of many feminists, all the oppression in the world comes from Western men, who are oppressing both women and non-Western men. Muslim immigrants are “fellow victims” of this bias. At best, they may be patriarchal pigs, but no worse than Western men. Many Western universities have courses filled with hate against men that would be unthinkable the other way around. That’s why Scandinavian feminists don’t call for Scandinavian men to show a more traditional masculinity and protect them against aggression from Muslim men. Most Norwegian feminists are also passionate anti-racists who will oppose any steps to limit Muslim immigration as “racism and xenophobia.' "
More than one Leftist feminist in Europe has blamed her own countrywomen for being raped by Muslim men in their own countries:
*"When University of Oslo Professor Unni Wikan reported a few days before 9/11 that 65% of rapes in Norway were committed by Muslim men, she saw fit to add that“Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for theserapes” because Muslim men found Western dress too provocative to stand:" (Source Below)"
The above quote by Ms. Wikan, a Leftist University professor in Norway, has got to be the worst piece of garbage that I have ever known to be spewed from any person's mouth. It is noteworthy that the greatest enemies of Ethnic Norwegian (And often those of other nations) women are Leftists of their own ethnic group.
-One more from Gates of Vienna. This refers to the efforts of Leftist feminists to import massive amounts of Muslims to Europe while forcing Western men to stop acting like men:
It is correct, as feminists claim, that a hyper-feminine society is not as destructive as a hyper-masculine society. The catch with a too soft society is that it is unsustainable. It will get squashed as soon as it is confronted by more traditional, aggressive ones. Instead of “having it all,” Western women risk losing everything. What are liberal feminists going to do when faced with aggressive gang of Muslim youngsters? Burn their bras and throw the pocket edition of the Vagina Monologues at them?"
Western feminists would do well to stop turning their men into androgynous half-men. Someday they may need the guys that they hate.
