Firstly I'm not going to turn this into topic about Islam and the West (there has been enough of those already, so please don't get off topic here).

Canada's feminist leader Justin Trudeau criticised for attending SEGREGATED mosque event | World | News | Daily Express

?Feminist? Trudeau under attack for attending gender-segregated event at Ottawa mosque | National Post

So apparently, Canada's PM attends a mosque with 3 female MPs except because they were women they had to enter through a side door and had to wear head coverings.

What the hell?

Aren't these politicians supposed to be 100% supportive of gender equality? Why is it that liberals will scold a white man for 'manspreading' but they will happily attend a ceremony for a religion that has 'antiquated' views on gender rights.

Now in this case I don't care about how muslims require women to sit or dress in a mosque (its their religion with their rules, and frankly I couldn't care less how they dress or sit in a religious service + the West has committed itself to tolerance :rolleyes: - at least for now)

But I cannot understand liberal politicians - they won't hesitate to call themselves feminists, they'll continually commit themselves to fighting 'misogyny' even if that means removing our freedom of speech, they'll quote false information (gender pay gap) & college rape culture and keep blaming men for the lack of females in politics, corporate boards and in STEM.......

But they refuse to protest that a religion that seeks to make itself mainstream in Canada forces women to wear head covers, and be segregated?????

Now lets say the Vatican was to introduce the same rule (claiming that it would preserve modesty and help keep women as virgins for their husbands...). There would be an uproar from every politician, feminist and 'gender rights' group.

Seriously what the hell? Is misogyny something that only white males can be guilty of? These are the politicians running Canada? :zany:

Is it just me or are the lunatics truly running the asylum? Why are there two sets of rules that are simply determined by your skin color?

Its identity politics. Divide and conquer. Break down all constituents into different identity based voting blocks and then win them to your side individually. Trudeau already won over feminists, various other progressives and leftist/socialist, now he is catering to the growing Muslim population.

While not quite the same, some Christian churches have dress-codes, too. Ranging from no-hats to cover your shoulders and knees, too: Speaking of Vatican:
Dress code for the vatican & what to wear

There's an old saying, "when in Rome..." The PM was a guest; it's just good manners to behave as your host would like you behave. If this is not about Islam and the West, then it's contemporary politics...Thread closed.
