Checkmate: Real feminists are refusing to wear the hijab

Real feminists do not submit to the culture and values of a foreign culture and a misogynistic religion/ideology. They make a stand as all these women have done. It is no accident that all these women also happen to be highly intelligent. I suspect that their ability to think logically and to visualise what their opponent is going to do in the future is behind their principled stand against the hijab. When you think about it the Islamisation of the West is like a Chess game. Only some of us are not fooled by their use of pawns. Only some of us can see ten steps ahead and know where their attack is heading.

Marine le Pen

French…National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon’s grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter.

…After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun – her first public handshake with a head of state – and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian

He heads the Dar al-Fatwa, the top religious authority for Sunni Muslims in the multireligious country.

“I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar,” she told reporters, referring to a visit in 2015 to Cairo’s 1,000-year-old center of Islamic learning. “The highest Sunni authority didn’t have this requirement, but it doesn’t matter.

“You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up,” she said.

The cleric’s press office said Le Pen’s aides had been informed beforehand that a headscarf was required for the meeting and had been “surprised by her refusal”.

Brave Iranian women continue to fight oppressive gender laws

Most of us believe in religious freedom but few of us would support a religious legal system of government. In Iran the government has removed people’s freedom to practice or not practice the religion or non-religion of their choice and instead forces them to adhere to one religion’s rules in a totalitarian manner.

When any religion uses force or coercion to keep and control its members it has more in common with a cult than it does a religion.Personal choice is something that we take for granted here in the West and we women must never forget how hard other generations of women fought for us here in New Zealand to enjoy the freedoms we have today. Women in Iran used to have freedom but it was taken away from them. They now are fighting a very difficult fight to regain even the most basic of rights, such as the right to feel the wind through their hair.

Pimping the Peonage Part Two

Peonage is another word for servitude and subjugation. We have always had a Pimping the Poor series and this is part two of my Pimping the Peonage series given the number of articles promoting the Muslim culture of the subjugation of women in our New Zealand media.

The latest Pimping the Peonage article has the misleading headline, ‘Headscarf costs woman job.’

It didn’t cost her a job at all. She was told during the interview that in their workplace they didn’t allow headscarves. She then had the choice to accept the conditions of employment or to reject them.She made it clear in the article that in her case wearing the Hijab was a voluntary decision on her part as she made the decision to start wearing it while in High School.

Ms Mohammadi said she had chosen to wear the hijab when she was in high school once she understood its significance.

“For me it gives me confidence. It’s who I am … it represents me as an individual

-A Newspaper Corazon Miller

It is therefore not a religious requirement and is not compulsory. She has undermined her own Freedom of Religion argument by stating that wearing it is voluntary.She has the choice to wear it or not. Even if she was being forced to wear it by the ideology of Islam it makes no sense at all that she would complain to the Human Rights commission about the employer. Surely the complaint should be about the totalitarian ideology that compels women to wear such a thing?

My daughter has a part time job in a Deli. They have strict headwear rules that she complies with. She does not go running to the Human Rights commission because she is not allowed to wear on her head what she voluntarily chooses to wear on her head when she is not at work.

Just for fun to highlight how ridiculous this all is I have part reproduced the article from A newspaper and I have replaced the word Headscarf or Hijab with the words neck chain as both are symbols of submission and control.

Today’s face of the day is the face of Iranian women protesting the tyranny of the Hijab ( head scarf ) They currently have a facebook page called My Stealthy Freedom where they risk fines, lashes, and imprisonment by posting photos of themselves without their Hijabs. From the general public they risk having acid thrown in their faces. The woman behind the facebook page has been smeared by the Iranian government who reported on State television that she has been raped by three men in front of her son after using drugs.
