Deeply misogynistic religion that for some reason gets a huge pass in the western world. Hmm.

I will never understand that. Ive met people of both sexes who are usually all for equality but when it comes to islam i usually hear something like "it's their culture, they want it like that". Like muslim women are some other species that neither wants nor needs human rights.

The fear of being seen as Islamophobic is very similar to the fear of being seen as transphobic. The consequences are pretty much the same, too.

Why are these men doing this? What resources do they not have to allow women in? Their explanations are so vague. This really DOES NOT have to be an issue. It's like they're going out of their own way to make the point that they hate women.

A mosque should be a place of worship, not a God damn boy's club.

I suppose the justification would be that males are required to come in for Friday prayer, but women are not. There are even Hadith that suggest that the best possible place for a woman to pray is in the darkest area of her own home (because, god forbid that a woman is visibly present in public). So being in a mosque is seen as unnecessary for a woman.

The whole religion is sexist as shit, there's even a verse that instructs husbands to beat their wives. I've been an ex-Muslim for nearly a decade and I don't plan on ever coming back.

Because they hate women and see them as possessions to control, like children.

Children shouldn't be treated that way either...

This article is about yet another way in which women are losing out in the pandemic.

Please lets not turn it into a thread that makes Ovarit members who are Muslim (or who follow any religion) feel unwelcome.
