The New Face of Sexism

The perverse logic that women are always right

Youtube image

After an incident on June 6, 2016 a man was later convicted (march 2018) in Belgium of sexism in a public place for the first time sparking fresh debate about sexism and a call for similar new laws in other countries.

Before jumping in, lets remember that sexism or gender discrimination is a prejudice or discrimination based on a person’s sex or gender but it mostly pertains to control, contempt, negativity or hostility towards women and girls. According to Belgium law, sexism is defined as “every gesture or deed” that is “clearly meant to express contempt of a person based on sex,” or considers a person inferior based on

We Are What We Eat

Foods support us or weaken us

Women within Islam

The myth of social equity under Islam

The Quran says that men and women will be judged by Allah. This does not mean that they have equal rights and roles, or that they are judged by the same standards. There is no ambiguity in the Quran, the life of Muhammad, or Islamic law as to the inferiority of women to men, despite the effort of modern-day apologists to salvage Western-style feminism from scraps and fragments of verses that have historically yielded no such progressive interpretation.

After military conquests, Muhammad would dole out captured women as war booties or prizes to his men. In at least one case, he advocated that they be raped in front of their husbands. Captured women

The Women of today’s Iran

Iran like so many countries has a troubled history, it has fallen from its greatness as Persia, an empire related by Dharma to India. It was a principled country based on truth but after being conquered by Islam, it has degenerated into divisiveness and oppression. Oppression particularly against women and children.

Excerpts from Iran Oppresses Women

The main religion in Iran is currently Sunni Islamic. In the Quran (the Islamic holy book), it states that women may try to manipulate and distract men from making important political decisions. Women are said to be evil. To prevent these distractions, women often are forced to wear head coverings such as hijabs. They can

Polygamy under Islam

A base herd instinct

A religion’s purpose is to connect with God but Islam does anything but that. Instead it teaches men to abuse children, women and encourages slavery and above all treat them in the most inhuman way possible. Obviously social pictures of a few rich and famous show bejewelled women who look very lavish but the reality is very very different inside the veil.

Majority of Muslim women, as much as 89% suffer more than any other women born under any other social system or so called religious faith. On surface and text books, news media and public statements talk of great love and peace and nobility towards women. However the reality is that women are considered

Feminism Redefined

Celebrate the Goddess

We have lived for several thousand years as a predominantly patriarchal society creating forms of injustice that have always been apparent. Yet populations are coerced and indeed many times forced to adhere to the patriarchal and commercial ideologies that continue to govern human life.

From this injustice the woman’s movements have arisen and successfully lobbied for equal rights, but this has been limited to the physical, the material world gaining women equal opportunities and payment in the workplace along with other social and political benefits. Woman’s movements to date have done little to achieve actual woman’s liberation, they have simply opened a floodgate so they have more physical and intellectual freedom.

Like men, women are identifying

A Biography of the World’s Most Notorious Prophet

By F. W. Burleigh

Why all the car bombs, beheadings, and mass murders in the Middle East? Why the relentless killing of non-Muslims throughout the world by the followers of Muhammad’s religion? Why Boston, Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels, Orlando, and, Nice, and now . . . ?

Author F. W. Burleigh draws on an academic, investigative, and literary background to bring forth this penetrating look at what is behind it all. Burleigh’s interest in Islam was sparked by the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
