The Personal Is Political

Hey N.O.W. why don’t you all grow a set and do something real for actual women around the world that are treated like sub-humans, you know, for a change. The woman in the following article is fighting for her right not to be raped for protesting, you all are fighting for what? right, nothing. I know that it would be just a bit too hard for you to actually fight for rights for women who need it. I know it is too complicated to leave your suburban homes and actually protest the treatment of Muslim women around the world, including here in America. That you actually use your political connections in the Democrat Party to actually work on human rights for women, you know, a real definable movement. Of course that would be something you all have not done since about 1975. Seriously, N.O.W. Has Just Become a Joke

The spokesman, Moussa Ibrahim, said the men accused by Iman al-Obeidi are now suing her. A son of a high ranking Libyan official was among those she claimed had raped her, he said.

“The boys she accused are bringing a case against her because it’s a very grave offense to accuse someone of a sexual crime,” Ibrahim told reporters in the Libyan capital.

Al-Obeidi made headlines when she rushed distraught into Tripoli’s Rixos Hotel on Saturday, seeking to speak to foreign media. She claimed she was detained by a number of Gadhafi troops at a Tripoli checkpoint on Wednesday. She said they were drinking whiskey and handcuffed her, and that 15 men later raped her.

  1. I’m not anything close to a feminist, but my heart goes out to women who have to live constantly in a spirit of fear…afraid of saying the wrong thing, afraid of failing to meet expectations every minute of the day, afraid to be honest…afraid of just about everything in life.

    N.O.W may not stand in their behalf, but God does. May He be with them and protect them.

    • “I’m not anything close to a feminist”

      Which is why you make so much sense, lineholder.

      Actually, upon further reflection, you probably *are* a feminist. You’re just the kind that actually thinks for yourself…makes choices based on moral and intellectual foundations…and actually believes that atrocities and degradation perpetrated upon women should be denounced whether those perpetuating them are you political ‘buddies’ or not.

      Cf. NOW’s unyielding support of Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy for behavior that was an affront to everything they supposedly stand for.

      • eburke, there is truth in what you’ve stated here I do think for myself.

        There is just a point where the spirit of fear becomes oppressive, abusive and cruel.There is absolutely nothing about it that can be defined as “good”. So in my own mind, it falls into that category of behavior that is amoral and even immoral at times. But this spirit of fear isn’t limited to just females. It can exist across an entire society of people as far as that is concerned.

        There can be other options open to people in how they respond to the situation. They don’t have to act in a manner that generates this force of oppression. Yet many people do respond this way for the sake of trying to control and/or modify behaviors of other human beings. They let their own desire for power and their will to dominate get the better of them.

        But I think seeing an oppressive influence in a religious context, no matter what the religion may be, is probably the most reprehensible form of oppression that has ever existed or will ever exist, because it deliberately uses religion as a cover for acts of evil.

        It just stuns me sometimes to hear our leaders in particular not only justify but praise this type of oppressive behavior as being “peace-loving”.

  2. Any religion that places blame for a man’s lack of sexual control on any woman for the man straying from God, is a warped belief system.

    Abdicating personal control of your actions and using “the devil made me do it” line of thought is childish.

    The “we respect and honor women” sounds hollow when for a specific period of time and the exchange of money, a sigheh (temporary marriage) can be performed. For an hour, a day, a week, a month, normally when the man is away on pilgrimage or business. Just so he won’t be in violation of religious law.

    • If Muslims do not bring themselves around for a reformation we are going to be in war for the rest of my life because the inhumanity to man and women will not stand, Americans and a large portion of the world won’t continue to let this crap stand!

  3. Unfortunately this is the way of the Muslim religion. Women are pretty much slaves. Even if they are raped it’s “their fault” because they must have done something to attract the rapist and in some instances they are even stoned to death.

    This will never change. It’s ingrained in their religion.

    • That first paragraph you wrote pretty much sums it up, and the whole social system collapses if women are not reliably in the place and situation you describe. I hate to be overoptimistic for our cause, it can lead to so much disappointment, but, I do agree N.O.W. has been discredited to some degree and they are not reaching the middle or undecided any more – just dragging the bag and turning the bucks for lib candidates is what is left for them. I believe it was an unexpected consequence of the war in Afghanistan the invasion kind of tripped over – “hey in the areas where we went in, girls/women can go to school again as they used to be able to 40 yrs ago” – GW and the First Lady mentioned it a couple of times, that our efforts were allowing women to come in to the 21st century – it was hard for NOW or Good Morning America or the Today Show to argue with that. NOW shirked back into the shadows and just counted their money. Which still does a lot of damage.
