But if a man moans about an injustice, he's labelled a whinger, when we've only just started challenging the situation! As for honor killings, I do not know the exact origin of the idea that if a woman is raped or has a relationship, the family has been dishonored. We all know that those unpleasant people who would do such a thing are not going to be deterred by a piece of cloth. Some questions to ask: 1. A three-hour serial sexual assault atop a pile of glass shards as a fraternity-initiation ritual? The real double standard does not cross sexual lines. Women famously claimed back the word slut. Sometimes it happens to people who are agents who made their own choices and insisted that they will be free from harm while making unwise decisions. I am not agreeing to such thought here, but tying to point out that the entire argument, both ways is wrong.
The issue here really is not if apples and oranges are the same. Oh and that is just one example. Putting it all on men and leaving out women is unfair — the Prophet saw stated that the most difficult trial for men is women. All else is the same. Especially given the current legal climate that treats men as guilty before innocent if a false allegation is levelled against them.
That is simply, like I pointed out in the beginning looking at your foot when your nose hurts from a blow. The other harm relates to helping a person with their self-control and not unnecessarily exposing that person to temptation. We have to really open our hearts and understand the pain that men feel…like it or not, this is the way Allah made them. People are entitled to a basic level of respect regardless of gender, but putting women on a pedestal simply for having a vagina is undeserved. Feminism is an ideology, it is not synonymous with women and disagreeing with their seriously flawed beliefs and frankly hateful view of men, does not make one anti-woman. Music, movies, and so on? He laughed as he noticed me freezing up and trying to step as far away from his group as I could as they walked by. Defining whole movements or systems by their most radical edge cases and applying every attribute of the edge case to the movement is simply idiotic.
That clears up my confusion, though one would still argue that sexual expression in the form of catcalling and in the from of wearing, for instance, halter top and short skirts, are not the same. And this has happened to me before. And yes, feminism did play a role in that. Not doing so, can potentially lead to lethal consequences or chronic injury. Meanwhile, Sandberg was for not making a statement about the Women's March — which she she regretted. It has been feminist control over the mainstream media, politics, education and our legal systems that has enabled their bigotry to go unchallenged.
When it comes to street harassment, catcalling is considered indecent, disrespectful, and immodest, to say the least. Step out of the primative and our ancient animalistic tendencies by taking accountability for your blatant weaknesses. Perhaps this is the wrong approach. The post details more harms than simply mere temptation. I would ignore feminists, except for the fact that they have enormous influence in politics, the mainstream media, academia, the legal system and almost every other social sphere you care to name in the West and are doing enormous damage to society, especially for men and boys.
Br Daniel, You may have anticipated the objection, but you did not seriously engage with it. The same liberated people who fight over the right of a woman to walk down the street naked, quietly tolerate Western disrespect of Muslim women. But the reaction of feminists was: Who cares? When the Italian liner ran aground many women were shocked and dismayed that men were pushing them aside to get into the lifeboats. In the , covering the hair and donning loose fitting clothes were the norm. We all agree that as Muslims we know and understand that Islamic attire, as well as conduct will help and is the solution for a society that has no moral compass to speak of. Our sisters right here in America are punished for wearing hijab. Because Shaitan Satan verily, sows disagreements among them.
While it could be argued that it is also hard on men to witness the female form and abstain from any ill mannered attempts, the point here is that woman are being catcalled even if they do wear the veil, something acknowledged by you within this article. I believe br Daniel did address it in his point related to men in Cairo harassing hijabi women on the streets. They are just existing in life in the same public space as you and exercising their freedom to wear whatever they want. Stop whining and complaining like babies, and instead treat women with the respect they deserve, and get yourselves a girlfriend. Could regular exposure to sexually provocative imagery cause psychological or neurological harm in adults? The reality is that Muslim societies give men the pass or the excuse to indulge in such behavior with no consequences or punishment.
The subreddit treats women as if they are all a hive mentality and that these pick up techniques will work on all women. While most commenters found the behavior of the catcalling men disgusting, some took issue with how the woman in the video was dressed. Islam has already provided a perfect solution for this problem which I did not find mentioned anywhere in this article. I didn't really have time to collect evidence and examples because I just wanted to share something that's been annoying me about society but didn't have the time to go find those posts I was referring to like the incel sex slave one. Ultimately, the implication is that, through these kinds of arguments, we can justify and demonstrate the ethical superiority of modest dress, such as the hijab, even from a secular, non-religious perspective. My first experience with feminism occurred at university. In fact there are very few involved in cat calling compared to masses who do not.
Often, we characterize catcalling men as the predators who harass helpless women. If Allah has placed men in a difficult trial in the West, then he has also given them the self-control to succeed in those trials. This method that he used has done the exact opposite of what one might hope to achieve by talking about and explaining hijab! Using street harassment to make your point, even though you are saying that harassment is wrong is wrong. The two issues being: 1. Luckily some of us are ahead of the game.
