"Living a Lie" response

Reader comment on item: Female Desire and Islamic Trauma
in response to reader comment: look at the source

Who says she's not a stereotype? If she follows in the footsteps of men, and those men think their demi-gods put on earth in the name of Islam, then once again, she's kidding herself. So are they. But the greatest blame lies not in her, but in the men around her. They are frightened of women. Why else the honor killings? Why else the clitorectomies? Why else the veils?

And as for men living in other countries, they often think women are their property as well. But many of us men do not. We liberate ourselves when women are liberated as well. That's the one entitlement we all should have.
