Are people on the left really concerned about the basic rights of women?

Feminists teach young women in the West a lot about all the evils of men and western society. Christianity is evil. Capitalism is evil. Men are all out to get women and take away their salaries and birth control and abortion rights. And Western men are all rapists. Feminists have defined rape so low now that even unwanted kisses are rape. It sure sounds like they are really concerned about women, right? The Western liberal media certainly talks a lot about the “War on Women” when it’s election time.

Well, consider this story from Newsbusters.

Excerpt: (links removed)

This is the real “War on Women.”

Iraqi News reported Nov. 3 on an ISIS document that supposedly listed the prices at which to sell Yazidi and Christian women and children abducted by the terrorist group. Citing economic reasons, ISIS listed the worth of a young woman at $85, of girl at $128, of a child – as young as a year old – at $171. Only a few media outlets covered the story. The feminist media didn’t , maybe because free contraceptives weren’t at issue.

Translating the ISIS document, the news site revealed, “The market to sell women and spoils of war has been experiencing a significant decrease, which has adversely affected ISIS revenue and financing of the Mujahideen.”

In response, the group determined specific prices for women and children, while “vowing to execute whoever violates those controls.” This is the worth of a human life, according to ISIS:

  • A woman, 40 to 50-years-old: 50,000 dinars. ($42.90)
  • A woman, 30 to 40-years-old: 75,000 dinars. ($64.35)
  • A woman, 20 to 30-years-old: 100,000 dinars. ($85.80)
  • A girl, 10 to 20-years-old: 150,000 dinars. ($128.70)
  • A child, 1 to 9-years-old: 200,000 dinars. ($171.60)

New York Post, Daily Mail, RT, International Business Times, Opposing Views and Christianity Today are among the few outlets to report on the story.

[…]In reaction, Tearfund’s Katie Harrison told Christianity Today about the “the hasty marriage ceremonies between buyer and the woman they’ve bought in order to justify his raping her.”

“And these are not just grown women,” Harrison said. “The youngest girl we heard of being taken for rape was three years old.”

This is the war on women the media don’t report on. Instead, feminist media prefer a “silly” war, where the goals are to ban the word “bossy,” demand free tampons and label abortion as “good” and “moral.”

You’d think, at the very least, they would find time for this too.

Slavery is only a problem for Democrats if it is being used to bash white people from hundreds of years ago. It’s not something that causes them concern today. They just bring up slavery because they want “reparations” for themselves today. They don’t care if slavery is actually going on now to other people. Not their problem.

Now I can’t prove this, but I am willing to bet that all of these Sandra Fluke feminists vote Democrat, which means that they were in favor of withdrawing from the Middle East and letting the Islamists win. So how do they work that together with their supposed concern for women? Oh, I know. They don’t have concern for women, they have a concern for getting as much stuff as possible from others as they can. They care more about getting free abortion drugs for themselves than they do about these Yazidis being protected from rape. Or even about unborn women children. (Oh yes, feminists favor sex-selection abortions). That’s feminism, I guess.

  1. Even if feminism is about egalitarianism. It is still a utopian ideology that is in contradiction with reality. By the faulty assumptions of the equality of man that extends beyond equality under God who is no respecter of persons and the zero-sum nature of inequality and hierarchy.
