Saudi women demand end of male control



Activists say the laws restricting women in the kingdom are not based in religious teachings.
Saudi women activists have petitioned the country’s consultative council to back a demand to curb the “absolute authority” of male guardians over women in the kingdom, a signatory has said.
Activist Aziza Yousef told AFP news agency on Sunday that “rights activists have petitioned the Shura (consultative) Council on the occasion of the International Women’s Day [on March 8] demanding an end to the absolute authority of men over women”.
They demanded “measures to protect [women’s] rights,” in their petition to the Shura Council, she said.
Saudi Arabia imposes a strict interpretation of Islamic law, forbidding women to work or travel without the authorisation of their male guardians.
It is also the only country in the world that bans women from driving, and a woman cannot obtain an identification card without the consent of her guardian.
Laws in the kingdom enforcing such restrictions on women “are not based on religious” teachings, said Yousef.
The petition, signed by 10 female activists, also calls for allowing women to drive.
Three female members of the Shura Council presented a recommendation that women be given the right to drive in October, but the male-dominated 150-member assembly blocked the proposal.
Women in Saudi must obtain permission from a male guardian to perform “certain surgeries” and to “leave the university campus during study hours,” she added.
She cited a recent case in which a pregnant student had to give birth on campus after a women-only university in Riyadh denied access to paramedics.
And a university student died in February after paramedics were prevented from entering her campus because they were not accompanied by a male guardian, a must according to the strict segregation rules in the Muslim kingdom.
The Shura Council is appointed by the king and advises the monarch on policy, but cannot legislate.

Anonymous asked : Can you please not take this psychopathic dumbass to form an argument for feminism? You kinda make it sound like men in general are blood-hungry misogynists by nature.

kinomatika:

rexmccoolguy:

kinomatika:

obviously you didn’t listen to the video. Here, I’ve transcribed it for you:

Hi.

Elliot Rodgers here.

Well, this is my last video. It all has to come to this. Tomorrow is the day of retribution. The day of which I will have my revenge against humanity. Against all of you. For the last eight years of my life, ever since I hit puberty, I’ve been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires. Probably because girls have never been attracted to me.

Girls gave their affection, their sex, and love to other men, but never to me. I’m 22 years old and still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl. And through college - for two and a half years, more than that, actually, and I’m still a virgin. It has been very torturous.

College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. During those years, I’ve had to rot in loneliness. It’s not fair. You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice. A crime. Because, I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m a perfect guy. Yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men. Instead of me.

A supreme gentleman.

I will punish all of you for it.

(laughs quietly into camera)

On the day of retribution, I am going to enter the hottest sorority house at UCSB, and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up blonde slut I see inside there. All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would have all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man. If I ever made a sexual advance towards them. While they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes.

I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You’ll finally see that I am the truth, the superior one. The true Alpha Male.

Yes.

After I’ve annihilated every single girl in the sorority house, I’ll take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see out there. All those popular kids, who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure while I’ve had to rot in loneliness for all these years. They’ve all looked down upon me and every time I try to go out and join them. They’ve all treated me like a mouse.

Well now, I will be a God compared to you.

You’ll all be animals. You are animals. And I will slaughter you like animals.

I’ll be a God, exacting my retribution on all those who deserve it. And you do deserve it, just for the crime of living a better life than me. All those popular kids, they’ve never accepted me, now you’ll all pay for it.

And girls, all I’ve ever wanted was to love you. To be loved by you. I’ve wanted a girlfriend. I wanted sex, I wanted love. Affection. Adoration. But you think I’m unworthy of you. That’s crime that can never be forgiven.

If I can’t have you, girls, I will destroy you.

(laughs into camera again)

You denied me a happy life. In turn, I will deny all of you life. It’s only fair.

I hate all of you.

Humanity is disgusting. Wretched and depraved species. If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing to reduce every single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood.

And rightfully so.

You deserve to be annihilated, and I will give that to you. You never showed me any mercy, so I will show you none.

(laughs into camera again)

You forced me to suffer all my life, and now I’ll make you all suffer. I’ve waited a long time for this. I’ll give you exactly what you deserve. All of you. All you girls who rejected me and looked down upon me. Treated me like scum while you gave yourselves to other men.

And all of you men, for living a better life than me. All of you sexually active men, I hate you! I hate all of you. I can’t wait to give you exactly what you deserve.

Utter annihilation.

(smirks into camera)

Now what was that about me not making this case about feminism again??

Maybe it has something to do with him being legitimately insane and not with him being a fedoracore idiot ???

I mean cmon, he was a deranged beta with a superiority complex, he hated both women for not being attracted to him and other males for being more attractive than him.

Nah this is definitely a feminist issue.

The idea that men ‘deserve’ women didn’t just pop out of nowhere, it comes from years of institutionalised misogyny and hatred and the desire to control women. This guy wasn’t born with the idea that women needed to submit to him in his head, it developed after years of probably being really awkward, probably having no one to call him on his gross behaviour, and this is only speculation but, probably being neglected to some degree by his parents.

This is very much a feminist issue because it’s misogyny like this that gets planted into the heads of men. It’s this kind of shit that says “Well if you’re not out and having sex and if you don’t have a girlfriend or have women hanging off of you, you’re not a real man.”

It’s that sort of thinking that makes men feel self conscious to the point of acting out violently because everything they know tells them they’re not a “REAL MAN” if they aren’t covered in women and having sex at all times.

Now obvious there are men who don’t want that and are fine without that and they feel secure in their masculinity without sex or a girlfriend, but there are considerably more men like this guy who desperately want all of those things but are told that they’re worthless if they don’t get them. And that’s what’s dangerous.

This isnt a culture of ‘it’s okay if you don’t have a girlfriend by the time youre 18’, it’s a culture of ‘If you don’t eat, sleep and breathe sexual desire then you’re not a REAL MAN and should feel like shit for it.’

The guy in the video was obviously disturbed, yes, and he probably suffered from some mental issues I cannot really speculate on because I didn’t know him, but he was fed this mindset from very early on which is obvious, and where did he get that mindset from? Patriarchy. Men telling men how men should be in order to be MANLY MEN ALL THE TIME MAN MEN TESTOSTERONE 100% YEAH.

This is a feminist issue. Feminism calls for dismantling this kind of expectation of men. It calls for showing people that being an “Alpha Male” is not a necessity and it doesn’t define who you are. This is a feminist issue because it’s another checkmark against men who commit violence towards women for reasons of being rejected or unwanted. This is a feminist issue because this is an instance of a man who thought he was entitled to the attentions of a woman simply because he was a man.

He needed help, there’s no doubt there, but the problem is so much bigger than that. This is a blanket issue that affects men and women everywhere. Men are taught that they need to desire and own women, and if they don’t get that, it is acceptable to hurt women. Women are constantly put in the line of fire for the sake of men’s egos.

This is a feminist issue.

petition to start calling things “heteroerotic”

Yeah, I liked that movie, but all the heteroerotic undertones made me kind of uncomfortable. I mean, was that really necessary?

it was such a good movie until the totally unnecessary straight couple. it was clearly meant to be social commentary and push an agenda. PC bullshit.

finally moved into my new dorm, which is tiny and has no air conditioning, but is awesome none the less… i kinda miss chicago already

"I think Natalie Portman said something brilliant about modern-day female action heroes, about how even though they’re strong you need to also see the messiness of everyday life, that complexity. Even with Peggy Carter… Can we see her have a really shit day, put her pyjamas on and eat loads of ice cream and weep into chick flick? Can we have her be neurotic, hysterical, funny, depressed and all those things that we all relate to that aren’t regularly depicted because they’re not seen as sexy or comfortable for men to watch and masturbate over?"

how dare you reblog something of mine and not leave detailed tags describing what you think about my post and your innermost dreams and desires along with your blood type and last four of your social how dare you

iwilleatyourenglish:

everyone has said and done problematic things in their lifetime. that’s a result of the society we live in, not necessarily a reflection of their character.

what is a reflection of their character is how they react to being informed of the negativity within their behavior and statements, and whether or not they choose to change their behavior.
