So, according to a street corner Islamic preacher in Toronto, what this country needs is a “dress code” for women… a law that would require them to “cover up”, eliminating the likelihood of sexual assault.
One, Al-Haashim Kamena Alangana believes, that the recent attacks at York University could have been avoided, if our ladies were forced to don the more modest dress of Muslim women.
Quick! Somebody get a net… or a ticket for this cat back to the 12th century! Like maybe Afghanistan. I hear the Taliban have a few openings!
Like all Muslim men who insist their women be decked out in, what I call the “beekeeper suit”, Mr. Atangana, in my humble opinion, is a misogynist pig! (I can’t spell chauvinist)
The truth, as I see it, is that this is about dominance, not modesty… perpetrated on women for centuries by insecure men who fear they don’t have the right “stuff” to hang onto a woman… a way of discouraging any challenge for what is THEIRS… an attempt to keep the “hounds” off! They, like Mr. A. believe that if you can’t get a peek at the goods, you won’t want the goods.
Of course, they, he, couldn’t be more wrong. Cocooning your gal in bolts of cloth does not discourage unsolicited advances. For God’s (your choice) sake man, read a book, or a newspaper… catch a newscast!
Show me a Muslim woman who’s ever tripped (literally) through the streets of Cairo, who’s never had her tucked away tuckus touched, (or much worse!) and I’ll show you a woman too quick to catch!
Now, normally I wouldn’t dare presume to speak on behalf of our Canadian lasses, but in this case I think I’m safe.
I believe, given the opportunity, they would say to friend, Atangana… “Drop dead, Jack!”…
Or…“Catch a flight out of Pearson!”
