I bemoaned the UN’s ludicrous appointment of Saudi Arabia to the Commission on the Status of Women, and noted how feminists turn a blind eye to misogyny in Islam to avoid appearing Islamophobic. This earned me fan mail from a feminist who attempted to counter my arguments.
Jessica VVV said:
“Yuck. Keep mansplaining to us whom we should support and what we should fight, arrogant white dude. I don’t care. Islamic countries treat women much better than we are treated in the West. There is no hyper-sexualization and no objectification of women’s bodies in Muslim (and other minority countries). There are no unrealistic body-type expectations. Women there have freedom from male gaze, the greatest freedom there is. Women complaining about ‘misogyny’ in Islamic societies are all professional victims and whiners. UGH smh.”
Watch as I analyze her comments and “mansplain” to her where she goes wrong.
And consider, as western feminists go to bat for the most misogynistic nation on the planet, Saudi Arabian women have a different viewpoint as seen in this comment from Dina SB who also weighed in on my rant:
“I’m a Saudi girl and we live in a miserable situation... I was asking these questions why the whole world is blind about slaving us. Oprah Winfrey visited Saudi Arabia (and) she said nothing about women’s rights.”
Sorry, Dina, feminism has jumped the shark.
In order to be inoffensive and politically correct to Islamist regimes, modern-day feminism has actually thrown women under the bus.
