Recently, this article came to my attention (http://freethoughtblogs.com/maryamnamazie/2013/03/21/4-april-2013-international-day-to-defend-amina-she-represents-us/) about a woman from Tunisia named Amina. She posted a picture of herself online baring her naked breasts with Arabic text written on her that says, “[M]y body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honor.”
Clearly that message was lost on the Muslims. Maybe they don’t read Arabic? Anyhow, as the above article states, “Islamist cleric Adel Almi, president of Al-Jamia Al-Li-Wassatia Tawia Wal-Islah, has called for Amina’s flogging and stoning to death saying Amina’s actions will bring misfortune by causing “epidemics and disasters” and “could be contagious and give ideas to other women…”
Yeah. She may give ideas to other women. Watch out! Other Muslim women in the Middle East may start to realize that their bodies are their own and not owned by some man. But epidemics and disasters? What?! Her breasts are gonna cause a typhoon, earthquake, or hurricane? *eyeroll*
Newsflash, Muslim world: They are called “natural disasters” for a reason. Because they are natural! Therefore, there’s no supernatural cause for them. They happen as a result of nature. A woman baring her breasts, two women kissing, two men adopting a child, or a teenager eating a bacon sandwich after getting a tattoo while listening to a Marilyn Manson CD is not gonna cause a natural disaster. I promise!
I tell ya, for a bunch of people who claim that their religious text is full of science, they sure are ignorant of science. Naked breasts don’t cause hurricanes. But let me guess, we can’t prove that they don’t, huh? LOL
