It depends on how you take it.

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Sexist aspects of Islam

Submitted by Mona (United States), Aug 24, 2009 at 02:08

I disagree with both Claire and whoever she happens to be quoting in the beginning portion of her comments. It really just depends on how you take it. From as far as I know (and admittedly my knowledge is not as vast as I would like it to be) in Islam it is said that women have generally been created more emotional than men. I say "generally" because even still, it leaves room for exceptions. However, that doesn't mean that this is a bad thing or mean that their opinions are not to be trusted or accepted. As I said before it depends on how you analyze it. You could also say that a woman's opinion would be better than a man's because she can be more compassionate, understanding and forgiving than a man. Again, it is never said that ALL woman are more emotional than ALL men.

And to Claire, I would just like to say that of course you only see anger, violence and resentment on television. The media only shows you what they want you to see/believe. It is a dangerous and foolish things to base your opinion on millions of people based on what you see on television. Since when does television show you the truth?
