in response to reader comment: Somebody please talk about or to the women of Islam

Submitted by Bonnie (Canada), Aug 12, 2009 at 23:53

Women are only sex property in islam, fathers exchange 7 & 8 yr old girls for favors, pay gambling debts, etc....if she is a financial burden he can kill her, no questions asked. Girls listen, most every day of their lives, to curses and insults, enduring secondary treatment from brothers, uncles, fathers, cousins etc...

She is required to remain at home to be ready for his sex urges, anytime of the day or night, that he feels like it. She has no say in any of this. Just obey. No, does not exist. She is considered unclean, evil and most likely to go to hell. It is also written, that it is impossible for her to ever please her husband. Why? The book says all women are mentally deficient, that is why her husband can never be pleased.

Should someone break into her home and rape her, she will be put to death, as it is her fault for being raped. There are no excuses, it is at all times her fault. Then, as if life were not cruel and injust enough, she becomes pregnant and gives birth to a male, who will learn to look down on women, same as all the others around her. So she gives life to her oppressors. Should she be pleased that another trial is born?

You would not have to walk a mile in her shoes, a block would be sufficient.
