The Catholic Church in Ireland has been particularly unpleasant to women in a variety of ways. If you are an Irish woman and still an observant Catholic, I can only assume you have some sort of Helsinki Syndrome.

I understand why you might want to be submissive in a marriage, or in any other situation. Some women are naturally submissive and they should behave however they like and that’s their own business.

What I don’t get is why anyone feels qualified to tell other women that they should also be submissive wives. 

This is the biggest problem atheists have with religions: they insist on imposing their opinions on everyone else.

This image relates to the phenomenon of acid throwing as a means of punishing women in Islamic communities.

I don’t believe in “evil”, but I was trashing Islam before it was cool.

I made some tweets in support of #NoHijabDay. A Muslim replied to one of them, assuring me that no one is forced to wear a hijab, and to suggest otherwise is “bad propaganda”.

So, here’s some more “bad propaganda”.

This is from an Iranian poster campaign which demonstrates, if there were any doubt, that any Muslim insistence on women wearing the hijab (etc.) is at least as much about judging women for making their own choices as it is about preserving modesty.

Women should inherit half as much as men. 

Koran 4:11 – “Allah instructs you concerning your children: for the male, what is equal to the share of two females.” 

Touching women is the same as touching shit.

Koran 5:6 – “But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it.” 

Anyone who thinks females could be angels cannot be Muslim.

Koran 53:27“Indeed, those who do not believe in the Hereafter name the angels female names.” 

In other news, you better not take that off your head if you plan on visiting Iran or Saudi Arabia or you could be arrested.
