In a recent column, the Toronto Star’s National Columnist Emma Teitel spoke out against one of the most pressing feminist issues of our time — catcalling.
She didn’t raise the alarm over things that might be culturally insensitive, like female genital mutilation or Saudi Arabian women being denied basic human rights, of course.
No, Teitel wholeheartedly supports French politician Marlène Schiappa’s campaign to target catcallers, publicly shaming them similar to the way dog owners are shamed if they don't "stoop and scoop."
While it’s never been my thing, and I agree women shouldn’t be subjected to unwanted verbal remarks, how odd is it that she takes a stand against such behaviour towards women yet in a previous column, she had no issue lusting over a convicted terrorist.
Watch as I show you what she had to say when Omar Khadr scored that $10.5M apology-jackpot in July.
It’s all so confusing, especially since in yet another column, Teitel announced she was coming out of the closet.
So, we have a lesbian lusting for a terrorist beholden to an Islamist agenda that would mandate that Emma Teitel – assuming her sexual orientation was even tolerated – could only go out in public when clad in a burqa? Weird.
But, I suppose on the bright side, Emma and other women would never be subjected to catcalls if they were clad in a fabric coffin.
