    The good thing about those black sacks is that one can often tell apart the dainty, little feet of a pretty woman and the massive, great, hooves of a two-metre, four hundred kilo male pretending to be one so mistakes should be rare.

    It’s nice when sexually dimorphic clothing is so helpful in those situations.

    Spot on, Author.

    Preferred garb of Sudanese cop killers.

  4. Keep those brilliant punch lines coming, Author. You rock.

  5. The Beckster says:

    Wow, Author. Your punch line for this one had me wanting to punch someone! It’s a good thing I’m not a violent person. 🙂

    Gimp suits for women…..who is complaining?

  7. Matt R says:

    I’d share this with my feminist friends, but they’d call me an Islamophobe.

  8. Son of Glenner says:

    Wow indeed! What a punch line! Enough to earn you a major fatwa!

    Laripu: Inspiring about “Rana’s” bravery and ingenuity in getting out of oppressive society, but sad and depressing in the circumstances that forced her to escape.

    Punchlines like that remind you how easy it is to take for granted living in a more civil society where women aren’t expressly punished for their clothing or gender. That doesn’t mean they have it easy in any part of the world (I honestly cannot imagine anywhere they would) but it’s depressing to accept that there are entire nations in this modern world that refuse to progress beyond what was considered the norm 1000 years ago. And not just about the roles of women but pretty much everything else.
    Even worse is when you read the news and cannot avoid noticing that certain nations, who pride themselves on the foundations of freedom, want to regress to such a barbaric state because of gullible populism.

    when mo called to the mountain, its orogeny,
    propelled by subducted misogyny,
    was not so dynamic
    as it was abrahamic;
    ontogeny can’t recapitulate phylogeny.

  12. Tinkling Think says:

    Someone, the binbaggery rules and other nonsense are not relics of a distant, harsher but nicer and cleaner past. There are many images, still and video, of well-dressed human beings allowed to wander around places like Iran during the 1960’s and 1970’s. The dementias of “sharia” are recent innovations and, as such, should be rejected, overthrown and heartily mocked by even the most faithful.

    It has nothing to do with decency, religion, faith or a shining, pure, chaste past, it is only and forever about mean, small-minded jerks wanting to control people.

    Brexit has a similar origin.

    Tinkling Think: Doubtless. But here’s the thing: I’ve had self-described feminists get up in my grill and tell me I’m an islamophobe for being opposed to things like Burkhas (yes–I showed them pics, it wasn’t hijabs) and FGM. I’d love an explanation of this one. An explanation that doesn’t make me laugh until the tears roll down my legs, I mean.

  14. Tinkling Think says:

    Helenahankart, the explanation is easy: they are, in technical, scientific, psychiatric, medical terms fucking nuts.

    One could suppose it was Stockholm Syndrome but that’s too easy an explanation and it only really applies to those who are or convert to being cult victims. Those outside the cult, such as your soi-disant Feminists could be SS-victims by proxy but I’m not entirely sure that the DSM’s recognise this as a valid illness.

    Personally, I’d imagine it would be a consequence of ignorance. They don’t know how bad living under Islam can be and they don’t know how relatively good not living under it is. I do. For one thing, not being under Islam means I am allowed to live. This, to me, is a good thing whether the world agrees wholeheartedly or not.

    It’s rather like wanting super-powers. One imagines oneself as a superman but fails to think deeply enough to see the other powered individuals, the ones who can walk into bank vaults or bedroom walls, the mind controllers, the guys who can level whole continents, the vampires, ghosts, machine-men, demi-gods, guys who fight crime dressed as bats and other threats. Liking the small comforts of tradition [which those black sacks are not], liking the safety of order and being ordered and liking the security of always knowing what is allowed and what is haram are all nice but there are drawbacks, down-sides to those which the advocates from the outside the cult either don’t see through ignorance or don’t see through wilful ignorance.

    Also, they are nuts.

    It is nice to see you back. I hope you are well and happy.

    H, tears of laughter, yet?
