    Some news from what might be the worst place on earth. Every time we see 'feminists' get angry about some innocuous bullshit it's important to remind ourselves that there still exist places in the world that are literally hundreds of years behind. Why should I take a feminist seriously when they are decrying air conditioning as sexist when shit like this is happening?

    To be fair, this has everything to do with white men and the crusades. So back off

    Edit: that is what Twitter taught me anyways

    Hmm.

    It probably would not trigger their fears so much, if the West was not awfully busy importing, or else trying to import the problem cultures for typically insulting reasons.

    Well.. Interesting discussion so far, but this is of course a horrible thing and Pakistan sucks dicks. Any chance whatsoever the government is going to do anything about this?

    you should take a feminist seriously, because you do not live in pakistan. you live in a developed country. why do you ask silly questions that you already know the answer to? whats your real angle in making this thread?

    All of the Western feminists, male and female, should move to Pakistan and work on fixing the problems there.

    Come now.

    It is a lot easier to undermine a civilization than to build one.

    A lot safer too...

    Feminism thrives in the West (for better of worse) because the open and tolerant culture allows it to thrive. The idiots who bitch and whine about "the patriarchy" and "oppression" would be executed in a place like Pakistan. Feminism will not thrive in Pakistan because the culture will not tolerate it. Feminists like to brag about how hard they fought for equality, but women's rights were inevitable given the type of culture we have in the West. Feminism takes far too much credit for what the culture and advancement in technology has accomplished.

    If feminism is as effective as it claims to be, then why does it only thrive in civilized cultures that are open and tolerant?

    oh devout changed his post while I had a phone call. Anyway.

    This sounds like it would be a shitty semantic discussion about what feminism means. It can mean many things from crazy feminists you may think represent all feminists to equity feminists like Christina Hoff Summers to Pakistani-American Sarah Haider who is often speaking up against this type of thing in Pakistan. My friend Anila posted about this incident earlier today. I haven't asked her but I would bet she calls herself a feminist.

    I haven't done much reading on feminism in Pakistan but I know there are two main types - secular and Islamic. They have a long way to go but there are feminists there.
