Gender segregation, like the burka, do one thing: reinforce the notion that women are objects to be controlled.
For women, as Harvard bows to Islamist Stone Age misogynist theory. Perhaps Gloria Steinem can find some room in her schedule to condemn this once she’s done campaigning for Hillary Clinton. Who, of course, also hasn’t said a damn thing about this. But then again, neither has the Black Elite, including the Obamas. Michelle Obama, who feels compelled to regularly remind us of her Blackness, and her husband know very well the obscene oppression segregation represents, especially if it’s implemented under the guise of “religion” or “culture.” After all, the South African regime argued their racial apartheid was cultural and no one else’s business. Nations rejected that argument, but then again the world’s Islamist Elite have a hell of a lot more money to spread around, don’t they? And people wonder why Hillary continues to delay the release of her tax returns. Perhaps it’s because the Clintons have become enriched, in part, due to financial relationships with Arab Islamists.
They’re all disgusting hypocrites which explains so much silence over this outrage.
In response to a request by female Muslim students, Harvard University has created women-only workout hours at one of its campus gyms. The decision has angered some students at the Ivy League university.
Since Jan. 28, the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center has been open only to women from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays.
The change was prompted by a request from the Harvard College Women’s Center, which was approached by six female Muslim students, said Robert Mitchell, communications director of Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. “It was done for religious purposes, but it’s not closed to other women who may want to participate,” he said…
Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, in Washington D.C., said modesty may prevent some Muslim women from exercising in a co-ed environment.
“If the women are dressed in a manner that makes it more comfortable to exercise, they may not feel itâ€™s appropriate for them to be viewed by men in that particular attire,” he said…”This is just yet another of what we thought was a reasonable request for some special times because of religion, not because of gender,” Mitchell said.
Oh, sure Just like South Africa’s Apartheid was due to culture and not race.
Harvard excuses the defacto segregation of women by saying the women want it that way. Let’s hope the alumni recognize the horror of this precedent and demand its reversal. As for the few Muslim women at Harvard who demanded the civilized world adapt to the misogyny they have accepted in their lives, they can join one of the many “women only” gyms out there.
Look, lots of women out there accept abuse because they’ve been convinced they deserve it, or because they’ve been told God wants it that way. A long time ago society rejected the notion that we collectively should accept domestic violence because the victim stayed with her abuser, and therefore must ‘want it.’ We chose to not be a party to that misogyny. Now, when oppression and abuse of women are wrapped in religion (which historically is very often the case), we are to facilitate it? I think not.
