Ayesha Kazmi on “The function of the Muslim woman victim in western feminism and the war on terror” (via kawrage)
I read the complete article, trying to understand what this writer was saying.
It still pissed me off. Partly because it’s “not all men” apologetics - an excuse which, right or wrong, most feminists just won’t accept. But, I’m angry mainly because it ignores the real and immediate problem.
Back in the 1800s, American feminists chose to postpone promoting the cause of women’s rights to throw their energy into something they felt was more important: ending a reign of terror imposed by men bending the law for their own profit. Feminists worked tirelessly to promote the end of slavery, and the destruction of families, the murder, and the culture of rape that went along with it.
RIGHT NOW, there are women who have been kidnapped into lives of slavery, brutalized, and raped by the terrorists of ISIS and Boko Harum.
RIGHT NOW, there should be no issue more pressing to feminists than the rescue of those women, and helping them rebuild their lives.
If that’s “warmongering”, then I’m 100% behind it. Terrorists don’t respect feminism - but they do respect superior firepower.
I have no time for intellectuals who hold their personal agenda more important than saving people who are in real and immediate danger.
stop scrolling and fucking read my words and reblog this. i don’t care how you do it but fucking share this right now.
i’m going to type like one of those annoying ass people who bold their words and speak in caps too and i hate those people on here but who the fck cares just listen to me.
ISIS is honing in on the kurdish city of kobane (ayn al-arab in arabic), which is right on the border with turkey. over 400,000 kurds have left their native town out of fear. during this whole time, ISIS has been massacring people who are mostly kurds living in the villages around kobane.
young kurdish men are being BEHEADED in the streets. kurdish yezidi and assyrian women and girls are raped, kidnapped, and sold into sex slavery. NOW OTHER FAMILIES ARE ACTUALLY KILLING THEIR YOUNG DAUGHTERS TO PREVENT THIS. GIRLS AS YOUNG AS 8 OR 12 ARE JUMPING OFF CLIFFS TO AVOID THIS LIFE AND YOU’RE IGNORING THIS.
i’m used to this because no one cares about the kurds. no one cares about the minorities of the middle east. it’s been 130 years of genocides after genocides after massacres after village destruction and internal displacements that i’m immune to this but this is just too much. we have our own protection services but we are working on little to no money and weapons from the early 1990s and 2000s. how are we going to protect ourselves from a terrorist group who has millions of dollars to their name and turkey to protect them?
now turkey has been denying they support ISIS in any way possible but how can they not be supporting them when the foreign defense minister pardoned them of their crimes? how can they not be supporting ISIS when they allow future militants from the US and europe to go through its borders and enter syria via secret border holes that are actually facilitated by the turkish military? and then when they are injured they’re rushed off to turkey where they get intensive hospital care in all the border towns, how is that not support?
my question to you is, when will you care? when, after how many weeks of the topic of ISIS being on the news, did you stop caring? was it the moment you heard “another conflict in the middle east”? or are millions of lives at stake just a grain of sand to you while you try to block it all out to focus on stupid ass marvel movies or a movie about a goddamn raccoon?
why have i only seen support for us kurds by warmongers and weird conservatives who think a woman who is putting her life on the line to protect her family and country is the definition of feminism even though she has no choice?
THIS IS REAL AND THIS IS SERIOUS.
if thousands of people can rally together to support palestine in the street, in art, in movies, and on the internet, you can do this, too. don’t be a goddamn hypocrite AND SUBSEQUENTLY SUPPORT A GENOCIDE OF ANCIENT PEOPLE, DUDE.
THIS is why I was so pissed off by this post over the weekend.
When bad things are happening in the world, we need to save lives first, and indulge in intellectual debates afterward.
The is no feminism under ISIS and Boko Harum.
The only gender equality in areas under their control is the equality of death.
I want more girl byronic figures, I want more reckless self-important girl libertines leaving a string of broken men in their wake while dashing off poems and getting into obscene wagers. I want girl characters that are just on the charming mercurial side of unlikeable arseholes and definitely morally questionable, but always game for a revolution.
Having broken my right index finger a few weeks ago, I am having a break form paper cutting. Surprisingly I am still able to draw (all be it a little slower), so heres a sneak peak of a drawing, Ode to Odin
