For hijab to be a feminist statement, Islam has to be a feminist religion.

business woman in handcuffs

I was beginning to think that I was all alone as a conservative feminist who could see Islam for the misogynistic ideology that it is. Where oh where were all the Liberal feminist academic types to support me in my thinking? Yesterday I came across a Blog called   The Economics of Curiosity   on Tumblr. Finally, here was the voice of an academic Liberal Feminist who gets it, REALLY gets it.

For those of you who still think it is just a scarf and no big deal I invite you to read this post. Certainly a scarf seems so much better than a Burka. I put to you that a ball and chain on my ankle may be more restrictive and heavier than handcuffs on my wrists but the purpose is the same. The reason for putting them on me is exactly the same. Even if I ‘ choose ‘ to put on the handcuffs I am choosing to be restrained and if it is my religion that tells me I am worth more if I am restrained, is it really a feminist religion?

NOTE: I have made some grammatical changes to the post to make it easier to understand.

The Hijab Is Not a Feminist Statement. Get Over it.

Are you a young woman who wants to be famous and make quick money without doing much hard work?…

Do you want to be praised as an epitome of decency and divinity at the same time?

If so, then the popular rhetoric of glorifying hijab on social media is for you! You get a guaranteed job working as a spokesperson sporting victimhood for groups such as Islamist organizations like IERA or extremist ones like CAGE, plus, legendary media outlets like the Guardian will hunt you for your own exclusive video! …

All you need to do is wrap yourself in hijab, and fully divorce yourself from critical thinking and intellectual honesty…

The real bigots in our midst


Traditionally one calls a person a Bigot in order to silence them, usually when you lack a convincing counter argument.


Traditionally it is the left and the liberals who like to call middle and right leaning people Bigots but I think that it is well past time that we acknowledged the real bigots in our society.

Bigots are those who are intolerant of others opinions. Bigots ridicule others for having a different point of view. Bigots use violence and confrontation to stop others from taking part in legal and peaceful protest. Bigots burn their own countries flag because it was waved by those whose views they don’t share. Bigots are intolerant of the democratic rights of others if the others do not share their world view. Bigots only support Free Speech when they are making their views known, they want opposing views silenced.

These are the true bigots of our society.

Don’t you just love bigots

As a Christian I really struggle to see how sermons such as this are helpful…to anyone.
