UK girl slut-shamed by fundamentalist Muslims: feminists and MSM say nothing

This news story helps answer the question why so few Muslim children fully assimilate into the Western culture into which they are born and raised. It is the sad tale of a Muslim girl who was filmed twerking like Miley Cyrus while wearing her headscarf. What happened next is a cautionary tale for any Muslim teenager who thinks that they can safely?assimilate?into Western society.

A Muslim girl wearing a headscarf was filmed dancing in the streets of Birmingham, U.K.?twerking, in fact?and the smartphone video soon went viral, viewed over a million times. Ironically, it was popularized in no small part by outraged Muslim men

The fundamentalist Muslim backlash directed at this anonymous 17-year-old girl?s innocuous behavior was instant, personal, and severe. Amid threats in comment threads such as, ?Fu**ing sl*t someone give me her address I will kill her,? and ?Stupid b**ch needs to be killed,? the young girl issued a tearful, pitiful public apology that was broadcast by a pair of fundamentalist roving-fatwa YouTubers as a ?repentance? to placate the frothing Islamist mob.

Now I am no fan of twerking and think that Miley Cyrus is not exactly a great role model for young women but we were all young once. It was just a harmless bit of fun (or at least it should have been a harmless bit of fun) but when you add intolerance to the mix things can get out of hand real fast.

The global Grant Thornton survey of the Asia-Pacific region (APAC) shows 42 percent of Kiwi businesses have no women in leadership roles – up from 37 percent last year.

The survey examined 5520 businesses in 36 economies.

The research has been released on International Women’s Day, which this year looks at the issue of achieving pay parity for women.
