The “Sisterhood of Women” and the Torture of Nigerian Girls
230 teenage girls are still missing after having been kidnapped by Islamists in Nigeria two weeks ago. There are even reports that these girls are being sold into slavery and forced into marriages with their captors.
Where are the news outlets covering this? Has CNN spent the number of hours that they did when covering the missing Malaysian airliner? Where are the “feminists”? The website for the National Organization for Women (NOW), supposedly the voice of women in the US, has absolutely nothing regarding this terrible situation.
Why is this not newsworthy? Perhaps and what may be the only plausible reason is that this is an abduction of Christian schoolgirls by Islamists. Islamist anti-women (and girls) behavior gets a pass even by “feminists” who claim that they care about the “sisterhood of women”.
The “sisterhood of women” is a joke on many levels, but let us leave it at this – if the “feminists” cannot stand up for kidnapped schoolgirls being sold into a life of slavery and forced marriage (aka rape), no matter their religion, then the “feminists” are frauds – you cannot hold some women as more equal than others. In other words, those women in western countries are worth standing up for, but those in Africa and the Middle East are not.
We must also say that these “feminists” not only must be frauds for holding two separate standards – but also racists and cowards. White European women in western democracies should be protected from abuse – but black African or Arab women cannot since the “feminists” may be charged with “cultural insensitivity” or even worse “Islamiphobia”.
This is a horrible and intolerable situation for those families hearing about their loved ones being kidnapped, sold and raped. We must all make a stand with them: check out Twitter #BringBackOurGirls and sign the petition here. Contact Congress and the White House and ask them why we haven’t heard anything from them about this crisis.
This is unacceptable.
