What is "modest" varies from culture to culture and really gets into one's head. Even open-minded and otherwise feminist women in Western cultures do not generally walk around in total violation of what our culture thinks is modest and decent.

I'm with Belle and Simon. Any woman getting called a 'cunt', especially one who is (possibly) trapped in a repressive sexist system so deeply that she can't even tell it's hurting her, is quite troubling.

"Cunt" is gender neutral. That's the beauty of it.

In what language is that, k0rsan? It refers to the vagina.

Comment by kOrsan on April 6, 2013 at 5:52pm

I meant the usage of it as an insult. You've never heard a man being called a cunt? I can demonstrate if you like.

Angela, it's not as much about sexuality as it is about power. Destroying something pure.

Angela, I told in another post already why the woman in the picture I uploaded is guilty. Yeah I have a lot of shit to say about that man as well, but I don't need to, because we already know he's a fucking asshole. I guarantee you that if I wrote something just as angry to a picture of some Muslim man, no one would raise an eye brow or bitch at me for not being politically correct. But as soon as it's some Muslim woman suddenly it's too far. She's just as bad for defending that bullshit rag on her head and lending credence to the bearded buffoon in your picture.

@kOrsan: So I've learned a lot from this discussion. I'm not going to insult you but I would like to ask you an honest question. Why do you believe that the women are just as guilty if they have no choice in the matter? Wouldn't you say they just go along with it not to get their ass beat? That's simple survival and they shouldn't be called names for doing that. That's the whole premise behind the Stockholm Syndrome to begin with. It's a survival mechanism. I'll admit out loud based on our prior conversations and after really looking up the definition of sexism that I am. I believe that men should love and protect and cherish the women around them. I believe that women should do whatever it takes to keep their husbands happy. Yes these are traditional gender roles that I have thought to be the way things should be. Yes I too have been brainwashed and I too am dealing with the aftermath of religion. I know it may be a fucked up mindset to break but it doesn't happen overnight. You wanna call me a cunt too? Call me a shitbitch while you're at it. Throw in a few extras. You're choice. I hope you feel good afterwards knowing you really got your point across. Everyone will say how awesome you are. But all sarcasm aside, I still would like an honest answer as to why you feel it necessary to call the very women who are entrapped every filthy name in the book if they TRULY have no choice in the matter.

What little boy are you even talking about? Listen I've tried to be nice and walk you through each mental process, but I'm getting too much sand in my buttcrack from that dessert you call your brain. It's getting frustrating. And no I will not speak to men alone, and leave out women. You're not helping when you're just one of those "IT'S ALL MEN! ONLY THEY HAVE TO CHANGE!" people. No. You might not be aware of this, but women do their gender damage as well. You can't expect only men to change, only men to be the center point, only men to argue, only men to do everything, and then bitch about everything being ruled by men. Take matters in your own hands for once. We all already are aware of ignorant men being sexist and detrimental to the female gender's rights. But in this thread you and some people are clearly demonstrating how little you're aware of how much these kind of women are detrimental to the female gender as well. No, we will not leave the women alone. It's people like you that stall progress. It's not only the men's fault. If some people like you could focus your energy on things that matter instead of "JUST MEN" for the sheer principle of it we would all have an easier time.

If this was the same fucking picture, but instead of the woman, some bearded muslim asshole was in her place holding the exact same sign, and I had written the exact same caption, I'm willing to bet none of you would've said anything bad about it. You'd all agree with me he's an oppressing asshole. But when the person has a pussy things suddenly change? Then it's not our job to point out the obscene bullshit? People like you are being sexist without even realizing it. I'm done. Belle was wise when she was honest enough to admit she didn't know enough about the topic and chose to omit commentary, you should learn a thing or two from her.
