The Palestinian way: Marry your rapist

     More than 50% of  Palestinians — men and women  — think a woman should marry her rapist. That seems bizarre and  outlandish  by Western standards. The picture to left  shows a group marriage of child brides in  Palestine.

Below is a picture of an 11 year old who was forced to marry her rapist.

 Iraq, Bahrain, Kuwait and Palestine have similar ‘marry-your-rapist laws.

 Egypt is the worst country for women in the Arab world, closely followed by Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen, according to gender experts surveyed in a Thomson Reuters Foundation poll.

 These are the results of a U.N. Women study which finds horrifying attitudes and behaviors toward women in the Muslim world.

 64% of “Palestinian” men say that women who dress provocatively deserve to be sexually harassed. 52% believe that women who are in public places at night are asking to be harassed.

57% think that a woman should marry her rapist and 47% believe that women who are honor killed for bringing “shame” to their families usually did something to deserve it.

A third of “Palestinian” men say that women who don’t wear hijabs deserve to be insulted.

And the women aren’t much better.

More “Palestinian” women than men justify sexual harassment in public places. 54% believe that a woman who was raped should marry her rapist. 41% don’t think he should be prosecuted.

43% of “Palestinian” women agree that women who are out in public at night deserve to be harassed.

Half the population knew of an honor killing that had taken place in their community in the previous year.

Saudi Arabia gives women access to credit — yes! Driving a car – no!

Women in Saudi Arabia still can’t drive — but some will have access to credit, markets and networks.  One million foreign drivers shuttle women around in Saudi Arabia.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia—The World Bank announced Sunday at an event with Ivanka Trump, the U.S. president’s daughter and senior White House adviser, that Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates have pledged a combined $100 million to a fund that will assist women entrepreneurs and small business owners.

“As a female leader within the Trump administration, my focus is to help empower women in the United States and around the globe,” Ms. Trump said.

The Women Entrepreneurs Fund is currently being formed and will be aimed at helping women in the Middle East by easing their access to finance, markets and networks.

Megyn Kelly: Trump, women and leaving FOX

 

Megyn Kelly's question to Trump about women

Megyn Kelly’s question to Trump about women

Megyan Kelly’s question to Trump on women — remember?   Now she  leaves FOX news for NBC.

At the very first Republican debate back in August, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly posed this question to candidate Donald Trump:

Kelly: “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’ Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”

That question Megyn Kelly posed to   Trump  — akin to ‘when did you stop beating your wife?’ has ongoing ramifications.

Today Jan, 3, 2016 Megyn Kelly leaves FOX News for NBC.

Hilary Clinton hitched her campaign that theme — that Donald Trump  was not fit to be President and had no respect for women.

Who were the women whom Trump made comments about?   You read and decide.

Santa Cruz CA resident gets “intersex” birth certificate

Santa Cruz, CA resident gets a “intersex” birth certificate — first one ever  issued in the USA.

For the first time in the United States, New York City issued a birth certificate reading “intersex” in the gender field.

On December 15, the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene corrected the original birth certificate of Sara Kelly Keenan, born in Brooklyn 55 years ago. She received it in the mail at her Santa Cruz, California, home on Tuesday.
“It was wonderful. It was the first time I saw ‘intersex’ in print related to my name,” said Keenan, an addiction life coach. “When I applied in court, I chose ‘non-binary,’ because that’s an umbrella term that would also include gender variant people.”

Sara Kelly Keenan says the correction is "realy validating."

“A person may amend their birth certificate to have ‘intersex’ reflected on their birth certificate with appropriate documentary evidence from a US-licensed doctor,” said Julien A. Martinez, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. “The department will continue to work with community partners as we adopt changes to more accurately reflect a person’s sex.”
Though Keenan had requested a term not strictly based on medical evidence, she found the city’s correction “really validating.”
Ultimately, the term “intersex” “carries more personal significance to me than ‘non-binary,’ ” she said.

Gender issues

“Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person’s anatomy doesn’t fit the typical definitions of female or male.
Keenan thinks of her story as “typical” for an intersex child, yet in an essential way, it is different from most: She was given up for adoption as an infant.
She was born to an unwed mother in a Brooklyn hospital, where she stayed for three weeks until she was transferred to a nearby orphanage, the Angel Guardian Home. Next, she was placed in foster care for five months and then adopted by a couple on Long Island. To this day, Keenan is unsure whether she underwent genital surgery during her first three weeks of life, as was typical for intersex children at that time, according to the Intersex Society of North America.
“I don’t know enough about what happened to me as an infant, because the medical records were tied up in a sealed adoption, and then the medical records at the hospital were destroyed in a fire in the ’70s,” she said.
 
What she does know: “Gender issues came up almost immediately.” At 3 or 4 years old, she realized that she was a girl, but “that wasn’t what I felt like. … I wanted to be a boy,” said Keenan. “A mistake had happened.”
As she grew older, she refused to wear dresses, asked to join the Boy Scouts and dropped out of the Girl Scouts.
“I felt comfortable at times in groups of boys but knew I was different. And I felt comfortable even less of the time in groups of girls but knew I was different from them,” Keenan said. “I never felt I belonged or fit in anywhere — but I looked like a little girl.”
Still, by ninth grade, she wasn’t showing signs of puberty.
 
“My body really became different physically from everyone else,” said Keenan, who described herself at that stage as “a 6-foot-tall naked 8-year-old girl. That was a real problem in high school.”
“I really hated my body. I hated my life. I felt cursed, and I felt like there was no hope for me,” she said, and she began to cut herself. “If I had not been raised Catholic and believed that hell was waiting for me if I killed myself, I probably would have ended my life as a teenager.”
A month after turning 16, she underwent an operation to address the fact that she hadn’t entered puberty. Surgeons removed “what they said were ovaries that would never develop,” Keenan explained, though it was actually testicular tissue that had grown where ovaries are located in females.
After the surgery, she started female hormone replacement therapy.
“They said I was 100% girl and I just couldn’t make hormones, and that was the second lie of my life, and that lie stood for 30 more years, until I was 49 or 50 years old and used the Internet and a visit to an endocrinologist to confirm the truth,” Keenan said.

‘Pushed down the female track’

The original “lie” of an intersex birth had been perpetrated by the hospital and the adoption agency without her adoptive parents’ knowledge or consent. However, this second lie relied on their participation, observed Keenan. Trying to learn why she was not developing normally, they had taken their 16-year-old daughter to a succession of doctors, who ordered various tests.
OKCupid expands options for gender, sexual orientation
The results showed Keenan to be genetically male with female genitalia and mixed internal reproductive anatomy.
Keenan’s mother, who died of lung cancer just three years after her daughter’s surgery, probably knew this, she said. After all, her mother had contacted her aunt, who arrived at her mother’s bedside “24 hours too late to have my mother tell her what my mother knew and what she wanted the aunt to do for me in my life.”
Her father definitely knew about Keenan’s gender circumstance. Five years ago, he admitted to her that he’d been given the option for surgeons to construct a penis followed by male hormones as a way to allow Keenan to masculinize.
“His words were ‘hell, no, that’s my daughter. She’s a girl,’ ” Keenan said. “So I was just pushed down the female track and given female replacement hormones.”

Self-defining words

” ‘Intersex’ is an identity. So there is no definition of ‘intersex.’ It will vary from one person to another,” said Dr. Eric Vilain, a professor of human genetics, pediatrics and urology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. He explained that some transgender people identify as “intersex,” even though they were not born with atypical genitalia.
“But a significant number of people born with ambiguous genitalia reject the ‘intersex’ identity. It is not a clinical term,” Vilain wrote in an email. Among doctors and clinicians, it is referred to as Disorders/Differences of Sex Development, or DSD.
“The definition of DSD is ‘congenital conditions in which development of chromosomal, gonadal, or anatomical sex is atypical,’ ” said Vilain.
Keenan said the intersex community rejected the medical term, rebranding the condition as “differences of sexual development.”
“The idea being that our bodies don’t need to be altered, necessarily: Disorders need treatment; differences can be allowed to exist,” she said. “Differences can be tolerated, accepted and even celebrated.”
Keenan makes use of the many terms meant to define her.
“I use ‘intersex’ for present day, and I use ‘hermaphrodite’ when I’m talking about the ’60s and before, because that was the term when I was a baby,” she said. Using the different terms helps her give historical context for a time when “the protocol of the day was to lie to us.”
Years ago, it was accepted by the medical community that if you assign a child a gender — with surgery — and reinforce it, the child will assume that gender, Keenan said.
Looking back, she understands the decisions that were made for her as a baby.
“They had a baby they needed to get a home for, and in their minds, they needed to possibly perform surgery to do that. And that was the mission — get an unwanted baby a home — and they did what they needed to do that.”
Times have changed, and the medical community, when dealing with a baby born with atypical genitalia, does not always immediately “correct” a child’s anatomy.
“Intersex people are treated differently and better now because of societal advancement in thinking,” Keenan said. “We’re trying to stop the surgical intervention on infants so that their genitals are not changed before they reach an age where they express a desire to have surgery or express a gender preference.”
She also hopes all gender-variant people will be able to get birth certificates, licenses and other official documents aligned with their identity. They are “equally as valid in their beliefs,” even if science hasn’t caught up, she said.
“There was a time when science hadn’t caught up and understood my genetic reality,” she said.
Join the conversation

 

Would she have preferred being surgically steered toward a male identity instead of female?
Though she believes “that’s probably a truer physical identity for me,” she would have wanted to go that way only “if I could be that way 17 years old in 2017,” since 1977 was “a harsher, crueler world to be different in.”
Today, she says she leads a wonderful life with her partner of 30-plus years, David.
“We’re very happy, and we’re considering retirement and what comes next in the next 30 years of our life,” Keenan said. “But I’m not content, because infant genital surgeries are still happening in America.”
Santa Cruz, CA resident looks forward to retirement with the identity that best fits her.

Ohio State jehad attacks: head scarfs in solidarity says CNN

      burka-just-eyesIn response to the Ohio State jehad killings, CNN Camrota  wants non-Muslim women to wear head scarfs  in solidarity with Muslim women.  Really?  Why the Burka and head scarfs  according to Muhammand?

“O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks all over their bodies that they may thus be distinguished and not molested,” Allah tells Mohammed.

The context of Koran chapter 33 verse 59 is even grimmer if you put it in the context of verse 50 which allowed Mohammed’s army to enslave and rape captured women and the use of the Burka to distinguish between wives and slaves.

But CNN’s Alyssa Camrota followed the usual habit of buying into Muslim fantasies of victimhood by suggesting that non-Muslim women adopt this degrading symbol of rape and subjugation.

“Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if you’re not Muslim,” Camerota said during an early-morning broadcast on CNN’s “New Day.”

“Maybe it’s the way people shave their heads, you know, sometimes in solidarity with somebody who is going through something,” she added.

Camerota was responding to a CNN segment about Muslim women who say they live in fear of being verbally or physically attacked for wearing head scarves.

It’s time for Camerota to read books as to how Islam badly harms women.  Try A God Who Hates.

Hilary’s team includes Beyonce

Lewd and crude music. Performed in  the White House.  Part of  Hilary’s team.

Michelle Obama’s response?

  Michelle is “shocked”  she says.   About comments Trump made 11 years ago.    Really?

How about much more recent stuff at the White House.

It’s OK for your husband Obama  and your   children to  listen to lewd and crude  Rapper Rick Ross — right there   in the White House?

Read the rapper’s  lyrics.  Find out about Rick Ross’s  rap sheet.

 And now there’s   hip hop  Beyonce   — who has been on Team Hillary for more than a year.  She  was photographed at a Clinton fundraiser in May 2015.

Hillary is a noted fan of the 35-year-old from Houston, saying at an event last year: ‘I want to be as good a president as Beyonce is a performer’.

Some of Beyonce’s ‘controversial’ lyrics:

– ‘When he f*** me good I take his a** to Red Lobster, cause I slay. If he hit it right, I might take him on a flight on my chopper.’ Formation, Lemonade.

– ‘You can watch my fat a** twist boy. As I bounce to the next d*** boy.’ Don’t Hurt Yourelf, Lemonade.

– ‘I don’t give a f***, chucking my deuces up. Suck on my b***s, pause, I had enough.’ Sorry, Lemonade.

Rapper Rick Ross performs at White House

Rapper Rick Ross performs at White House

Raper Rick Ross performed at the White House with a ankle bracelet.   In 2013,  rapper Rick Ross apologized for using rap lyrics that seemed to endorse slipping a drug into another person’s drink.

Is this an example of lewd?

In his “U.O.E.N.O.” song, he sang, “Put molly all in her champagne/ She ain’t even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain’t even know it.”  Later in 2013, he apologized for the song.

Because of the lyrics, shoemaker Reebok ended its endorsement deal with rapperRick  Ross.

___________

To  Michelle Obama:    Rather than ‘lewd and crude’  top on your mind,  it’s time for serious discussion of the issues that can make or break this nation:  the national debt,  out of control immigration, a middle class that has lost real wages, ObamaCare which cannot sustain itself due to rising costs.  These and many other issues.   It’s time to assess the legacy of Obama at the polling booths.

Why does Hilary take money from countries which hurt, demean, stigmatize women?  From countries that stone women to death for sleeping with someone not their husband?

Hilary gets money from countries where women are stoned to death.  

Ask Hilary why she takes money from individuals and countries that harm women.

In Saudi Arabia — which gives tons of money to the Clinton Foundation — women

Say it isn’t so: Activist critical of Trump rapes Hispanic illegal

Tony

Yapias rapes Hispanic illegal

But it is so — An Hispanic activist critical of Trump rapes an undocumented Hispanic female and then deletes text messages from her cell  phone.  She pressed charges the next day and the man, activist Yapias formerly of Peru/ Mexico  was arrested.

You might remember a Hispanic political activist named Tony Yapias, who was extremely critical of Donald Trump’s assertion that some illegal Mexican aliens were rapists.Tony Yapias is the director of ‘Proyecto Latino de Utah’.  Mr. Yapias also coordinated numerous protest events against Donald Trump including a rather violent display in Salt Lake City, Utah.

tony-yapiasThis week Tony Yapias has been arrested for rape.   However, not only was Yapias arrested for rape – his victim was, …wait for it…, yep, an illegal alien.

Yes, it appears Mexican rapist Tony Yapias felt additionally empowered by the fact his victim was less likely to be able to contact law enforcement.

However, as Fox13 in Salt Lake Cityreports:

[…]  Despite the woman’s fears concerning immigration issues, court documents state, she reported the assault the day after it happened. She was also examined by a forensic nurse who found she had multiple physical injuries consistent with her explanation of what happened(link)

Mr. Yapias threatened, raped and blackmailed his victim specifically because of her undocumented illegal immigration status
