Remember the Femen Protests?
Remember the Femen women who protested topless last spring in support of Amina Tyler, "a Tunisian woman who [had] posted topless photos of herself protesting religious oppression," as reported by Paul Schemm and Diaa Hadid ("Muslim Women Vs. FEMEN: Topless Protests Inspired By Amina Tyler Seen As Counterproductive By Mideast Feminists," Huffington Post, April 10, 2013), among other reports in other news services?
Of course, you do!
Well, so does one young Muslim woman, who decided to send a chador-clad Muslim superheroine to teach those Femen-ists a lesson:
The superheroine draws a sword in response to the Femen-ists' words. I suppose there's a sort of symmetry to that action, depending upon placement of the "s" in "sword" and "words." Anyway, once the Femen-ists are cowed and under control, the superheroine accuses them of ignoring women. Eh? Hmmm . . . okay, got it -- by concentrating on Amina Tyler, they ignore most women -- I guess. And the lesson? Here:
The Femen-ists have been hung out (hanged?) to dry (to die?), or so this cartoon panel implies. And the lesson? Free speech has a cost? (One's life?)
At least, this superheroine recognizes that women do face problems in the Muslim world, as we see here, here, and here. The cartoonist herself seems well-intentioned, but her true enemies are not the so-called 'Islamophobes,' but the Islamists, who themselves are accountable for what would better be called "Islamistophobia"!
But where is the line to be drawn between Islam and Islamism?
