Muslims who marry infidels?

According to Ali Waked, writing for Breitbart (August 19, 2017):
While sharia law allows Muslims to marry non-Muslim women who convert to Islam, the law forbids a Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim man unless he converts to Islam.

Sounds sexist to me :)

It could be, however, that the man can marry before the conversion of the spouse, but the woman can't marry until after her fiance converts?

That would be a logical resolution, but I can explain the actual one:

A Muslim man can marry a Jewish or Christian woman, and she need not convert to Islam, but a Muslim woman cannot marry any non-Muslim man.

Of course, any Muslim can marry any other Muslim, including converts to Islam from any background.

And this isn't sexist because Allah is greater than any other god you can think of, and Allah's power is not only omnipotent, it is limited by nothing, not even by ethics, and who are we to judge?
