Feminist “critic” defends Islamic misogyny, throws Saudi women under the bus

David MenziesMission Specialist

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.

What should happen to all these insane radical feminists and other man-haters, is to round them all up, chain them to individual stoves and give them a good smack once a day for good measure…I mean you can’t reason with them or debate or even discuss anything anyway, so why not treat them like they want to be treated!?

Are these people real? Nobody can be that stupid, or can they?
commented 2017-05-08 23:23:09 -0400
This woman thinks she has it better bcz men don’t stare at them the same way they do western women. Stupid girl. Of course their men don’t look as their covered up head to toe! It could be the ugliest cow or the prettiest bird, no one knows what’s under there. And if they feel their treated so badly in the west then stay in the east. Please stay.

Billy Howard, I think the world has gone mad! Thankfully, not the entire world, there are still those of us who believe good is good & evil is evil; not the opposite that is being pushed on society.

I JUST DON’T COMPREHEND WHY ANYBODY REFUSES TO SEE WHAT’S PLAINLY IN FRONT OF THEIR FACE!! I TRULY THINK LIBERALS WILL DENY THE FACTS WHILE BEING GANG RAPED BY MOSLEMS AND/OR BEHEADED!!

If the west does become subjugated , i will actually enjoy it when these idiot feminists are faced with cold hard reality, it will not be all bad.

I guess I’m just living in the dark ages.
Back in my day, the public fought FOR women’s equality, secularism in schools, separation of church and state, integration/assimilation, freedom of speech and AGAINST child abuse, homophobia, communism, and segregation.
Those things we fought for back in the day have become “yesterday’s values”.

TODAY’S VALUES (and examples):
Women’s inequality: Sharia compliance
Religion in schools: Muslim prayer spaces and religion-based gender separation in public schools
State promotion of (a certain) religion: Religion in gov’t advertising (ever notice how many hijabs appear in gov’t adverts?)
Cultural separation (diversity): encourage acceptance of foreign cultures and their anti-western values, “cultural appropriation” has become a thing
Segregation: Infidel-excluded gov’t supported housing, sanctuary cities
Restriction of speech: M103, people being arrested for “inappropriate” twitter comments and the new far-reaching definition of racism, political correctness has run amok.
Forgiving child abuse on religious grounds
Lack of condemnation of (religion-based) LGBT violence around the world
Promotion of communism: Gov’t policies and public actions that lean towards this political ideology

Has the world gone mad or am I just an old guy with old-fashioned values?

I do not understand these politically correct feminists that defend Sharia Law or the practise of Islam.
What an illogical contradiction. They make no sense at all.

Do these people have no brains at all. Are they trying to prove to the world that they do not want equal rights with men? They are just plain nuts!

Peter – having been anorexic years ago, it’s hard to get back to normal. In the long run, it’s old fashioned moderation in eating and exercise that works the best. Though I do wish I could cut and paste with what I have, to be more proportionate!

Maurice Potvin, Yes, you are absolutely right.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 33,267 Attacks, 214,094 Killed, 295,282 Injured that we know of

Aided and abetted by SJWs and so-called feminists like Jessica VVV. Without their collaboration, the number of casualties wouldn’t be nearly as high as it is.
commented 2017-05-08 13:54:32 -0400
There is no way you can put some reasoning into those new feminists heads. They are so unhappy and hateful of themselves and their society that facts do not matter to them. Total insanity governs them.

Deborah said, " … is like being anorexic, you look in a mirror and see a fat face and body, … "

I could do with a bit of anorexic attitude … for a while. ;o)
commented 2017-05-08 12:33:31 -0400
These modern feminists just prove, that if you keep telling yourself lies, that you will believe anything, even as the reality stares you in the face. An example of this brainwashing, is like being anorexic, you look in a mirror and see a fat face and body, while others see your body as skeletal remains. When you lose your ability to think critically, then mental illness has its foot in the door of your brain.
commented 2017-05-08 11:28:49 -0400
The mental gymnastics for these deluded women who call themselves feminists is truly astounding!
As others have commented, I think Jessica VVV and her movement should totally immerse themselves in Saudi Arabia, perhaps they could blog about how liberating it is to be entombed by cloth in such a hot climate; and, be viewed/treated as sub-human!
commented 2017-05-08 10:42:57 -0400
All Jessica VVV has to do is to move to Saudi Arabia or any other Muslim dominated Sharia law country for say a year or two and we will see if she sings the same tune when she gets back … if she gets back. With he feminist attitude she probably would not last long.

It is truly difficult to understand how someone can twist their mind into such a pretzel that they think Saudi Arabia treats their women better that does the West.
commented 2017-05-08 10:36:02 -0400
Perhaps she should consider purchasing a tasteful and stylish black sack to cover herself with (so as she swelters in the summer and never again feels wind or sunshine on her face, she can take satisfaction in knowing that she is safe from lecherous white males – since we all know that they’re the most evil representatives of a degraded and disgusting gender.) Even better, how about moving to the Kingdom, since she seems to think its the epitome of a feminist paradise?

But she won’t. Muslims love Islam so much they insist on immigrating to non-Muslim nations, never to Muslim-majority ones. Curious, that. And why do those people like Cher and Madonna who threatened to emigrate if Trump was elected, or those who claim socialism is the be-all and end-all, not move to the socialist paradise of Venezuela? Or even Mexico? It’s always a nation dominated by the evil Western Patriarchy, such as America or Canada , that they consider – the very kinds of nations that they trash. Damn hypocrites.

David Menzies, thank you for your report and directly speaking to Jessica VVV and others like her.
Like so many other faux feminists, she ignores the obvious and chooses to live in a perpetual state cognitive dissonance.

Dina SB’s comment concisely explains the plight of women in Saudia Arabia and her wish the world wouldn’t ignore this. Dina, there are many women and men in the West who see the truth and whenever possible, tell the truth to others and demand our government stop altering the truth. We are hated for doing this by ignorant Marxists, and hypocrites. I continue to pray for women everywhere who are treated as sub-human and suffer abuse.

I will re-post what I said in another thread earlier this morning. Hyacinth posted a link to a very interesting article https://www.academia.org/the-origins-of-political-correctness/

Hyancinth, thank you for posting the link. It was written 17 years ago, and is still what I would consider very relevant to what we are seeing in today’s world. Political Correctness has a long history, and as the author pointed out, the left is to heavily criticize and deconstruct Western civilization; blind to the Marxist failures of the past and in modern times. Ask these haters to step away from victimhood mentality for a time, in order to closely look at Venezuela or North Korea for example, they will deflect or hurl incorrect labels at you. The other group that hates Western civilization is making headway in undermining democratic nations from within.

Marxists will defend Islam and overlook the hatred and violence of the followers who perpetuate Mohammad’s prescription for a world-wide caliphate. The left will tolerate subjugation of women; FGM; human rights violations in Islamic states & in enclaves within their own country; child brides; murdering gay people; killing apostates and non-believers; capturing non-muslim women/girls and considering them sex slaves “war booty”; rape of boys and girls by men who use Mohammad as their perfect example of how to behave. They believe the prescribed lies the muslim is encouraged to tell, even when their eyes and ears tell them differently. The don’t realize the options will be 1) Convert 2) Be killed 3) Take your place as a dhimmi and pay the tax (this is so non-muslims don’t have to earn their own living) 4) Slavery (women: sex slave, men: you can look forward to castration)

The left will also deny the stages of jihad and continually parrot “Islam is the religion of peace”. They will deny results of PEW research and others who have investigated this, and, they will fervently maintain a small minority have “higjacked the religion”. They are adamant it is a religion, despite all the evidence it is a murderous ideology which is responsible for 290 million deaths and Islamic aggression since it’s inception. This number is growing on a daily basis.
