I honestly wonder how many Hollywood and pornographic films certain Muslims watch. Because they don't seem to trust their own daughters, sisters, mothers, nieces, or female cousins to be independent, out of the fear they might become the actresses in Hollywood or pornographic films ("whores of the west" (they're words)).
Muslim societies see women as 1) a sex object who cannot show herself and cannot appear in public without wearing Arabian clothes 2) Incapable and dependent: they need to be "protected" and policed because they lack the qualities to be on their own and be independent.
We NEED to see women as equal, we CANNOT put any restrictions on them. Muslim women should be allowed to make their OWN decisions, and live their OWN lives according to their wishes. More importantly, we CANNOT see them as being weak in their deen. We CANNOT make them feel as if they're being criminals in the eyes of Allah. Several patriarchal muslim countries have the view women will become prostitutes, sluts, or have boyfriends if they aren't burka covered housewives, or if they don't have close male relatives with them when they go out. Because like I have said many times, culture influences peoples views on Islam. So contradicting culture or the ulema from that culture does NOT MEAN they're misguided.
We need to stop judging, stop being suspicious, and stop being paranoid of muslim women if we see them with a man who isn't related to her (or maybe he is). We also cannot spy on them to see if they do things that confirm our suspicions or paranoia. Many men and women have co-workers, colleagues, teachers/professors, patients, and doctors whom are of the opposite sex. It only becomes haraam when dating, flirting, or engaging in fornication arises.
I should add, flirting means engaging in types of talk that will lead to dating or fornication. Just because a laugh is shared, or acts of kindness, that doesn't count as flirting. I say this because muslim communities are engaging in massive paranoia about what flirting actually is.
We need to STOP targeting Muslim women. Muslim societies should STOP seeing women as baby making machines who should be hidden from public. Muslim societies should STOP expecting that from women. Many Muslim women don't cover their hair. Which unfortunately makes them prone to abuse and attacks.
"I think she has boyfriends", "I don't think she does her namaaz (prayers)", "I don't think she fasts during Ramadan", "She's trying so hard to be westernized". These rumors start spreading like wild fire in muslim communities and countries.
How come we don't see Hindus, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, or atheists target and harass women like how many muslim communities do???? How come females from other religions are getting bullied like how many muslim women have to go through??? How come men from Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Atheism aren't going after their women like rabid dogs, which is so prevalent in Muslim societies??
AND even if muslim women are engaging in fornication (I mean if they openly say it, or you actually witnessed it (seeing the penis in the vagina- I have to be specific because like I said before, anything is fornication/adultery nowadays according to backwards Muslims)), drinking alcohol, having boyfriends (I mean actually dating, and NOT what I mentioned in the third paragraph), and wearing revealing clothes (I don't mean showing her hair, I mean actually revealing and tight clothing that will get her kicked out of school), then it is between her and ALLAH, not between her and the vulgar language you are about the spew. By the way, all that activity is FAR MORE COMMON among Muslim males, but no one is going to target them.
