Threatening to kill a woman for posting pictures of her boobies on the internet?! There is no reasoning with people like that! How can we start a dialog with someone who.. I mean... come on...

No wonder that place is wisely considered a hive of scum and villainy.
 
2013-04-10 12:10:46 PM  
Yet no one is doing anything against the men who have vowed to kill her?

I think someone is suffering from a balls shortage. . . . .

People who fear naked breasts are people not fit for this world. Love the boobies or get off my planet.

Call me stupid, but while I don't necessarily disagree with them, I'm not sure what these protesters are trying to accomplish, or think they will accomplish.

It's easy to roll our eyes and write this off as more backwardness from a country/region caught int he the 16th century, but it's starting to look like part of a trend worldwide .It seems like women's freedoms are being rolled back everywhere.  Not only are women in Libya, Iraq and Egypt far less free than they were five or ten years ago, but you have the Patriarch of what amounts to Russia's official state religion saying just yesterday that feminism was "dangerous" because it encouraged women to do something other than stay home and raise kids,  and even in the US red states are passing restrictions on things like abortion that are so punitive towards woment they would have been unthinkable a decade ago (tran-vaginal ultra-sounds anyone?) and it's becoming something close to an accepted notion in far right-wing poltical cirlces that women's sufferage was a mistake and the 19th amendment should be repealed (because women are creatures of their instincts and always vote for proponenets of "nanny-state" policies).  The backlash is real, and getting ugly

It is one thing to say Iwon't allow you to opress me, and I won't fear you and I can burn any symbol I want when you are hundreds of miles from where the lunatics who will kill you for that shiat are in power.  I think it is largely irresponsible and a meaningless gesture, but normally nto that dangerous to anyone.

However when you hitch your wagon to a person who is inthe middle of peopel who will actually hurt you for those things, an dyou start doing those things, that goes beyond irresponsibility.

No, the headline's mine, and while it is a bit a run-on it still seem perfectly cromulent to me.   It could have perhaps done with  added commas after "Blogger" and "online"  thereby making the text in the middle a dependant clause.  However, I don't think it is that hard to parse as is.

You spot the difference by looking at what their life situation is, not what they are wearing.

The bikini girl could easily be "property" of a pimp, and the burka girl married to a sweet guy who loves her and treats her like a queen.

miniflea: Call me stupid, but while I don't necessarily disagree with them, I'm not sure what these protesters are trying to accomplish, or think they will accomplish.


Whatever some protestors' goals are they want their protests noticed and discussed. One sure fire method to get some media attention is to protest topless and get arrested.

Since FEMEN is a feminist organization they have come up with an ideology where appearing topless is pro feminist (plus it really provokes the fundamentalist religious types who are a major enemy oppressors of women). They are a bit less coherent about how toplessness combats the sex industry. Maybe something along the lines of preemption where they will show their tits before being forced to.

The downside of this strategy is that the opinions of women may start to only be taken seriously if they are attractive and have nice tits.

But then again Fox news with their blond bimbos already works under the assumption that looks rather than intelligence is more important for conveying trust in the information  they give. Fox, if it still exists in 20 years, will probably evolve toward topless anchor bimbos.

Joe Blowme: Wow, are you really this stupid? "Islam is bad BUT THE RIGHT WING IN THE US IS WORSE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO STOP BABIES BEING KILLED!!"


The differences are primarily in the amount of power they have. The Right Wing extremist Islamists have complete power in a number of countries, whereas the Right Wing extremist Christians in the US have pretty limited power here. If we gave the Right Wing extremists Christians in the US complete power, how long do you think it would be before:

1) Homosexuality was outlawed
2) Adultery was a crime
3) Cohabitation was illegal
4) Heresy was a crime
5) Abortion & Contraception were outlawed
6) Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Hindus were subject to restrictions on their ability to worship?


I assume you are all for gun control in the name of the children though right? Want to protect the 200 that die from "guns" yet dont give a fark about the 3000+ killed per day... typical stupidity.

I'm not justifying anything. Especially not either of the indefensible things here:

- I'm not justifying laws requiring people to dress in a particular way in public. As far as I'm concerned you should be able to walk down the street naked if you want.

- I'm not justifying your assertion that you can make assumptions about people's lives based on their dress.

Tolerance of evil is aways a mistake. Intolerance of stuff you don't like is evil. Wisdom is knowing the difference between evil and stuff you just don't like.

I'm not justifying anything. Especially not either of the indefensible things here:

- I'm not justifying laws requiring people to dress in a particular way in public. As far as I'm concerned you should be able to walk down the street naked if you want.

- I'm not justifying your assertion that you can make assumptions about people's lives based on their dress.

Joe Blowme: A wise man once said "Tolerance of evil is a crime".

Tolerance of evil is aways a mistake. Intolerance of stuff you don't like is evil. Wisdom is knowing the difference between evil and stuff you just don't like.


If you cant see the evil in islam then i guess we will have to just agree that we dont agree on what is evil. I think Hitler was evil and i dont like him so does that mean he was not evil because i dont like him?

You spot the difference by looking at what their life situation is, not what they are wearing.

The bikini girl could easily be "property" of a pimp, and the burka girl married to a sweet guy who loves her and treats her like a queen.


Could be. The difference is that it is likely that bikini woman is treated as an equal to a man under the law, whereas burka woman is treated as property of a man. Whether your owner is nice or not does not change the fact that you are someone's property.

You are comparing the words of the countries leader and commentors on freerepublic and don't see the stretch?


Wasn't it just 5 years ago that this country was ran by people who might as well have been Freepers? Hell, the Bush administration drove out a lot of long serving government employees and filled their posts will diploma mill fundies who Obama shamefully said he wouldn't be purging when he took power.

Besides, the current administration only appears liberal in contrast with the Republicans. By any metric the current administration is basically moderate Republican.

I don't disagree that there are evil things done in the name of Islam. My point is that they are no worse than the things done by Christians. The Bible is a bloodthirsty book, and advocates or praises the use of violence far more than the Quran.

I don't support religion in general, I just don't see much point in heaping hatred on the 1.5 billion people who follow Islam because of the tiny fraction of that population who are extremist nut jobs.

If you can't manage that level of intellectual honesty, then at least condemn Christians to the same degree.

It's okay to dislike evil. But disliking something doesn't make it evil. Got it?

Because you added the word "likely" I will agree with you in once sense. Statistically, a woman wearing a burka is more likely to live in a country that does not grant her the same rights as a man.

That said, guardianship is not the same as ownership. It is definitely a severe restriction on the freedoms a person has, but it is more akin to the control a parent in the US has over their child than the control a slave owner has over a slave.

It's horrible that women are treated that way anywhere in our world. Every person should have the right to choose their own destiny, and support of their family, friends, community and government to pursue that.

The differences between that and the kind of oppression of women done by other religions are pretty miniscule. As I pointed out elsewhere, the primary difference is that in Saudi Arabia the right wing religious extremists have complete power to make the laws they wish, whereas in the US they have very little ability to do that. If you gave Christian right wing extremists the same power, you would see similar restrictions and treatment of women.

Finally, the scenario pictured in the comic could only happen in a country were a woman has a legal right to choose her mode of dress, and to the best of my knowledge there is no country in the world that has guardianship requirements but allows women to wear a bikini in public. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Why should I be more concerned about the 1.5 billion Muslims more than the 2.1 billion Christians?

It's easy to roll our eyes and write this off as more backwardness from a country/region caught int he the 16th century, but it's starting to look like part of a trend worldwide .It seems like women's freedoms are being rolled back everywhere.  Not only are women in Libya, Iraq and Egypt far less free than they were five or ten years ago, but you have the Patriarch of what amounts to Russia's official state religion saying just yesterday that feminism was "dangerous" because it encouraged women to do something other than stay home and raise kids,  and even in the US red states are passing restrictions on things like abortion that are so punitive towards woment they would have been unthinkable a decade ago (tran-vaginal ultra-sounds anyone?) and it's becoming something close to an accepted notion in far right-wing poltical cirlces that women's sufferage was a mistake and the 19th amendment should be repealed (because women are creatures of their instincts and always vote for proponenets of "nanny-state" policies).  The backlash is real, and getting ugly

Wow, are you really this stupid? "Islam is bad BUT THE RIGHT WING IN THE US IS WORSE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO STOP BABIES BEING KILLED!!" I assume you are all for gun control in the name of the children though right? Want to protect the 200 that die from "guns" yet dont give a fark about the 3000+ killed per day... typical stupidity.

As far as financial considerations I would agree what has been done can be considered moderate republican, however that wasn't the goal of the administration, just Obama dealing witht he hands he was dealt.
