And They Say The Republicans Declare War On Women?

A study was recently published documenting the fatwas, or islamic decrees, issued by the Muslim Brotherhood during their year in power in Egypt after overthrowing Hosni Mubarak. An examination of those fatwas reveals that those people have a very strange view of women and marriage. I'll go one step further and say that they have a primitive, uncivilized perspective that considers women as chattel or property, whose role in life is to be subjugated and used by men.
The study revealed that some of these fatwas decreed that women who swim in the sea are committing "adultery" -- even if they wear a hijab: "The reason behind this particular fatwa, from their point of view, is that the sea is masculine [as with many other languages, Arabic nouns are gender specific, and "sea" is masculine], and when the water touches the woman's private parts she becomes an 'adulteress' and should be punished."

Moreover, "Some of these fatwas also forbade women from eating certain vegetables or even touching cucumbers or bananas," due to their phallic imagery, which may tempt women to deviate.

Other fatwas decreed that "it is unacceptable for women to turn the air conditioning on at home during the absence of their husbands as this could be used as a sign to indicate to neighbors that the woman is at home alone and any of them could commit adultery with her."

One fatwa suggested that marriage to ten-year-old girls should be allowed to prevent girls "from deviating from the right path," while another prohibited girls from going to schools located 25 kilometers away from their homes.

Another stated that a marriage is annulled if the husband and wife copulate with no clothes on.

These fatwas also sanctioned the use of women and children as human shields in violent demonstrations and protests, as these are considered jihads to empower Islam.

Even slavery was permitted, according to the study: "the people who issued these fatwas demanded the enactment of a law allowing divorced women to own slaves," presumably to help her, as she no longer has a man to support her.
Read that next-to-last paragraph again. What sort of religion validates the use of women and children as human shields to protect the 'men' cowering behind them? What sort of 'men' would behave in such a cowardly manner?

The answer to both questions is the Muslim Brotherhood.

Which makes obama's support of the MB troubling, to say the least...

But... But... I know, we're racists... Oh, that wasn't the answer? You are absolutely correct. Those that have never been in a truly muslim country CANNOT understand how truly downtrodden the women are...

Yeah, but that doesn't fit the feminist/media narrative. The conservatives are the ones oppressing women...
