feminist woo

sylvestriana  asked:

The Quran says its okay for muslims to rape female slaves, which is is something that the holy prophet Muhammad and his followers did themselves. WOOO FEMINISM!!!!

First, I’ve read many places that’s taken out of context and the translation uses words that didn’t mean what they do today. (Any Muslim followers want to give their insight?)

Second, EVEN IF it does say that the vast majority of modern and/or western Muslims don’t believe that or follow it. The same is true with many things said in the Jewish Old Testament and the Christian Bible.

Third, EVEN IF it says that it’s still against the law. Separation of church and state, my friend.

Fourth, EVEN IF it says that and people believe it…. What the Hell does that have to do with feminism? I challenge you to find a feminist who is like “woo rape! Woo slavery!”.

Feminism is about equality and choice. I fight for and I stand up for women and men having those things. That includes Muslim men and women being able to practice that religion, being able to cover or not cover, and to reject old and ancient teachings they disagree with.

The problem with our country’s patriarchal society, is that husbands think ‘I can cheat because I’m a man’, whereas wives are treated like witches and just about burnt at the stake for doing the same thing.
