The lies about huge, basic differences in intellect, emotionality, rationality, fickleness and strength of character between men and women are intrinsic to islam. These lies are essential to a system that demands the total submission of one group to another.
In christian history we can find these lies about e.g. indians and coloured people. Indians were painted as vicious, barbaric and innately false and evil, hence it was a good and christian act to make sure they were vanquished and forced to submission and civilized by help of christian missionaries. In books from the 1930’s we will find scientists describe “n**roes” as being intellectually on the level of five year olds, amoral, lazy and ingratiating by nature, but easy going and with well developed musicality. It was, they claimed, a responsibility of the white man to lead and protect the poor inferior “n**groe” by enslaving him. Nazis had science prove the inferiority of jews, calling them brilliant devils, amoral and vicious people who used their abnormal intellect to conspire against all other peoples.
The purpose of these lies is to unite one group in hatred and contempt of another, or a conviction that one group is superior to another, and to justify forcing a group into submission, depriving a group of rights that are afforded to others.
This is exactly what islam is doing against women. The lies are the same, the mechanisms are the same, the quasi use of “science” is the same – the results are the same.
Muslims defend themselves by saying that it cannot be oppression since women are kept in high regard in islam, and of course loved by their families. Well, the “high regard” is just a euphemism:
|“In the Islamic nations there has never been anything else than equality of rights for women. Both sexes have their rights, their tasks, and these tasks were in the case of each equal in dignity and value, and therefore man and woman were on an equality.”|
|“The mission of women is to be beautiful and to bring children into the world. This is not at all as………unmodern as it sounds. The female bird pretties herself for her mate and hatches eggs for him. In exchange, the male takes care of gathering food, and stands guard and wards off the enemy.”|
Recognize the rhetoric? This is how submission and oppression of women is presented.
Thing is: I played a little trick on you. Sorry. I changed the word “Germanic” to “Islamic”. These quotes are Hitler’s and Goebbels’. You see, the nazi view on women was exactly the same as islamic view on women. Islamic texts on the role and nature of women are absolutely and totally interchangable with nazi texts on the role and nature of women.
The purpose of course it to justify male domination over women, to excuse and justify oppression and abuse of women to grant men total political, social and sexual power.
In islam, these quasi scientific differences between the sexes are also used to explain why polygyny is beneficial while polyandry is not. Some of the most common lies are:
* Men need more sex than women.
Scientific truth: For 122 different characteristics, from empathy to sexuality to science inclination to extroversion, a statistical analysis of 13,301 individuals did not reveal any distinct differences between men and women. One difference though is that men have their sexual peak at around 18, while women peak at around 40. For sexual compatibility then, 18 year old men should marry 40 year old women – not the other way around.
* Men should be the heads and protectors of women since they are more intelligent than women.
Scientific truth: Women now hold higher IQ than men. In the last 100 years the IQ scores of both men and women have risen but women’s have risen faster
Women have a slightly higher potential intelligence than men and are only now realising it. This is a consequence of modernity. The complexity of the modern world is making our brains adapt and raising our IQ, and women benefit more from education since they have a slightly higher intelligence potential.
* Men are rational, women are emotional. Hence, men can see the rational advantages of polygyny, while female objections are emotional and inferior.
Scientific truth: Modern independent science agrees that there are no fundamental differences between the sexes as far as reason/ rationality and emotion goes. However, there are differences in culture and upbringing that will e.g. teach boys not to cry or girls to be passive and shy. Men are just as emotional as women, however cultural conditioning gives women better means of verbalizing their emotions, and it is also culturally acceptable for women to show and voice emotions. So, the appearance of women being more emotional is just an illusion based on cultural prejudice against emotionality, and male, culturally conditioned, emotional constipation.
* Male jealousy is rational and protective, female jealousy is irrational, selfish and emotional.
Scientific truth: Both male and female jealousy is innate and a matter of survival, and conditions of survival for the off spring. Females tend to be more protective of spouses who are wealthy and consistent while males tend to be more protective of spouses who are attractive. This is based on what kind of spouse is best to get offspring and make it survive. So both male and female jealousy is rational. Jealousy can however manifest itself in irrational behaviour. This is equally proven by males and females, the difference being that male jealousy is more likely to end up in violent behaviour since men are more aggressive than women, and less apt at verbalizing and dealing with their jealousy.
