In response to an ill advised Tweet:

I note that these “safety tips for ladies” were tweeted by Haji Mohamed Dawjee so I am unsurprised by them. This does not render them any less arrogant and insulting to any female of any age – newly born to dying. Religions that defend men’s inability to “contain their lust” at the sight of a female being equally demean men whilst shifting the blame for lack of respect for another being, to the recipient of the unwanted act.

His chosen belief is not alone in this as other similar religious mythologies punt the same demeaning lies.

Men are able to be true lovers and companions as are women. Such men and women share a relationship which cherishes the other and nurtures the others that may result from it. Neither participant feels “uncontrollable lust”, because this is foreign to their ethics. The same is equally true for LGTB people.

Rape is an act of violence and domination. For centuries it has been used in wars to render women helpless and destroyed. It is still being used in the DRC in order to destroy close knit groups and access mineral resources as part of the greater rape of Africa, a female continent. Her riches must be purloined, her people dispossessed so that the growing genocide of the poor can be put into place. Only this will secure the continuance of the super rich and the multinationals – really?

The profit motive is highly masculine (psycopathic) and destructive. It ignores its impact on climate change, it only accepts women who behave like men and it destroys jobs by vacuuming up resources and stocks and shares greedily to ensured its security. In fact, it finds change intimidating and suppresses it.

Why do we have a youth unemployment problem internationally right now? Simply because profit is denying the opportunity to birth a future that serves all. Multinational capitalism does not want the innovation that the new generations bring into the world, because their power will be overthrown.

This is why those of us who know have to stand against multinational capitalism and open the world to innovation – our youth and their ideas. Just as we have to stand against archaic religious myths that suppress the mothers of those innovators.
