Swedish comedian Emma Knyckare is organizing a "man-free" music festival in her homeland in response to rape and sexual assault claims at festivals.
She wants to put on a really cool festival where only “non-men” are welcome, and no, she’s not joking.
She further said it would take place “until all men have learned how to behave.”
And so, a female-only show will indeed go ahead next summer despite some opposition pointing out that the attendee policy is unfair. In response to that claim, Knyckare told a Swedish media outlet:
“Since it seems to be OK to discriminate against women all the time, maybe it’s OK to shut out men for three days? I would not exactly call it an abuse not to come to the festival.”
This idea of putting on shows for “non-men” only seems to be part of a growing trend but if it’s okay to segregate on the basis of sex, can we also do so on the basis of religion and culture?
I ask because there’s an inconvenient truth about sexual assaults in Sweden that becomes apparent when you check out the stats.
The truth is that a disproportionate number of rapes are being committed by Muslim immigrants who simply do not subscribe to Swedish values though most politicians and media types in Sweden will shy away from even discussing this appalling epidemic.
Based on the numbers then, Emma Knyckare should be proposing a music festival that bans male Muslims.
Once again, we see how hard it is being a progressive as their perception of liberalism collides head-on with hard reality.
