  • CNN Op-Ed: Saudis Loved Melania Trump Because She Represents Submission to Men

    Bangladeshi pundit Anushay Hossain writes for CNN: "The ugly truth behind Saudi Arabia’s love for Melania Trump" is that her husband, President Donald Trump, makes her behave the way "the Saudi government likes women to behave." Furthermore, she writes, the First Lady does not deserve feminist credit for choosing not to wear a headscarf, because "that choice really is not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be."

    During a tour of the General Electric facility in Saudi Arabia’s capital city, Melania Trump lauded the “empowerment of women.” The First Lady said women should collaborate and make the education of their children a priority. Check it out (per Reuters): “It is about finding the balance,” she told the women, who took pictures of her with their smartphones. Later on Twitter, she wrote “Enjoyed talking to the incredible women working hard @GE_Saudi service center. Great strides being made towards the empowerment of women.” Melania is joining the President on his first international tour, where they will soon finish a...

    As advertised, the President embarked on the first trip abroad of his presidency this week, with the initial stop being in Saudi Arabia. He was joined by both the First Lady and his daughter Ivanka. Seen exiting Air Force One, Melania Trump, as always, looked completely stunning.Since they were landing in Saudi Arabia, you may have noticed something conspicuously missing from the First Lady’s ensemble. She’s not wearing a head scarf as is the custom in that country and some other Muslim majority nations. (Ivanka was spotted not wearing one either.) Lest you think that Hot Air has suddenly turned...

    A Muslim-American woman says she was unfairly singled out at a Kent credit union for wearing a hood, and that a supervisor threatened to call 911 if she didn't take it off. .....Sound Credit Union has posted on its Facebook page saying it did not handle the situation well, is apologizing, and will make sure it never happens again. It also stated, "It is clear our training needs to include more empathy and sensitivity to all cultures, because as a credit union, we believe in equal treatment of all people."

    Imagine what the American left would do if conservative Republican Christians engaged in a barbaric practice to mutilate little girls, to kill off their sexual desire while leaving them fertile when they come of age. **SNIP** "The left can easily and comfortably condemn the misogyny of white men, but not of men of color, not of Muslims," Hirsi Ali said. "They are afraid of being shunned. They're afraid of being put into a basket of deplorables. So they're silent." "And what are they being silent about? They are being silent about the mutilation of young girls."

    Minnesota lawmakers sat in stunned silence Wednesday as a Somali-American woman described how she was grabbed while sleeping by her mother and relatives, blindfolded and tied down to have her genitals cut as a young girl. She still remembers the pain, the blood and a woman holding the piece of her flesh above her. Farhio Khalif’s story put a name and face to the little-known cultural ritual now in the national spotlight after a Detroit-area doctor was charged with genital mutilation for allegedly performing the procedure on two 7-year-old girls from Minnesota. A federal judge on Wednesday denied bond for...

    She recalled the day she visited the Holocaust Museum and read a sign on the early warning signs of fascism, which included: corporate partners protected sexism, nationalism and fraud elections. Sarsour related this to the recent actions taken by the Trump administration such as the travel ban and defunding of the EPA and arts, saying that we may in fact have fascism in the White House already. “I think if anyone knows what fascism is, I’ll take it from those who are the survivors of the Holocaust and those who have documented one of the darkest moments of history,” she...

    This is the face of evil. It is the face of a wretched and barbaric practice- female genital mutilation. It is sometimes sugared over with the term female circumcision but make no mistake- it is mutilation. FGM refers to all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for cultural or other non-medical reasons. The woman in the picture above is Dr. Jumana Nagarwala. Her medical credentials are not in question: She graduated the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1998, according to an online bio (see cached...
  • New York Times scraps 'female genital mutilation' for being 'culturally loaded' term

    04/24/2017 6:45:24 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 73 replies
    A top New York Times editor decided the paper shouldn’t use the term “female genital mutilation” because the phrase is too “culturally loaded” and widens a divide between the Western world and “people who follow the rite.” Health and Science editor Celia Dugger said she came to the conclusion to refer to the act of removing the female genitalia of young girls as “genital cutting” during a trip to Africa in the 1990s. She spoke about her decision in a Times mailbag article in response to a reader’s question. “I never minced words in describing exactly what form of cutting...

    Worried the term “female genital mutilation” might sharpen the divide between those who oppose brutally cutting away a little girl’s genitalia to deprive her of sexual pleasure and those who practice the “rite,” one New York Times editor instead refers to the ritual as “genital cutting.”“There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm,” NYT science and health editor Celia Dugger explained Friday. She also said the widely used term (FGM) is “culturally loaded” in the explanation, which came as a result of...

    DETROIT (AP) — Zehra Patwa learned only a few years ago that during a family trip to India at age 7, she was circumcised, which is common for girls in parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Patwa, 46, doesn't remember undergoing the procedure, which is also called female genital mutilation or cutting and which has been condemned by the United Nations and outlawed in the U.S. But she doesn't want to. "I have no desire to get that memory back. ... Psychologically, it feels like a violation, even though I don't remember it," said Patwa, a technology project...

    The establishment media is hiding the dramatic news that President Donald Trump’s Department of Justice has announced a national campaign to eradicate the imported practice of Female Genital Mutilation. By ignoring the imported FGM practice, the TV networks “are guilty of aiding and abetting violence against women out of a politically correct fueled fear of offending Muslims,” says an April 18 statement by the Media Research Center and ACT for America.

    In her job as a refugee case manager, Fatimah Farooq would come to work in a hijab and speak with her clients in Arabic. Nonetheless, she found herself being asked whether she was Muslim. It’s not easy, Farooq says, navigating her dual identities as black and Muslim. “I’m constantly trying to prove that I belong,” said Farooq, who now works in public health. “It’s really hard not to be an outsider in a community — especially today, in the current times.” Many Muslims are reeling from a U.S. presidential administration that’s cracked down on immigrants, including through the introduction of...

Being born a Muslim herself, Ramadani is fearful of her life after receiving countless death threats from radical Muslims in Germany ... Once a darling of the left, Ramadani quickly fell out of favour with German liberals once she started criticising the oppression of women within Islam. Her fellow feminists accused her of being a racist...
