The inaction of feminists regarding honor killings

The Land of the

On Sunday, July 13, in Jonesboro, Georgia, an immigrant Muslim father strangled his daughter to death in a so-called “honor killing” because she protested being forced by her family to marry a man she did not know. No feminist uttered a word about the murder of twenty-five-year-old Sandeela Kanwal. On the following Wednesday officials in the city government of Atlanta, Georgia bowed to the pressure from one feminist nut to stop posting “men at work” signs in the city because they are “sexist.”

The contrast is stark as well as revealing, if not entirely disgusting. It reveals an American feminism that is a hypocritical, unserious, sham that deserves nothing but derision. A movement that indulges in oblivious, frivolity while real pain surrounds them.

(…) This is the result of liberal moral equivalence. The western liberal’s self-destructive insistence that each culture is just as good as the next, yet at the same time the assumption that our own is somehow worse for its “oppression” and “discrimination,” courses throughout the veins of pernicious feminism. The delusional insistence that we, the west, are the bane of civilization as poor young girls like Sandeela Kanwal lead pitiful existences often meeting a violent end right under the noses of these same “feminists” who claim moral superiority is an outrage. The belief that a paper sign alerting passersby that people are working in the area is worse than the murder of Sandeela Kanwal and others like her is a travesty.

I don’t think that only feminists are not really considering honor killings. The whole of Western societies do not consider them… at all. People do not see the real suffering in closed communities, where it’s very difficult to get out and where anything extraordinary (that is, not-inside-the-range-of-normal-behaviour) is considered as dishonorable. They consider that those things do not happen here as often as to be worried about.

Are feminists responsible for this? They are responsible for not alerting about the ideas that make a society to admit and even to defend such behaviour. But where are the rest of the people? MSM hide the expression “honor killing”, Governments censor gender/sex violence but are not interested in publishing statistics showing special characteristics of the agressor (religion, ideology, if he is or not an immigrant…)… And this is something people do not speak about: they don’t expect it to happen to them, so what is the use of worrying?

Also read: The deadly cost of honor killings:

When primitive patriarchal dominance subjects intelligent, educated, and reasonable women to the whims of sometimes-uneducated, -unreasonable and -fanatical males, the consequences can be criminal. The women, at their peril, will rebel, and the men will react in the extreme.

Ironically, in fanatic Islamic circles, the murdered victim is disgraced as the one who brought shame to the family, while the male murderer is defended as the injured party.

A history of physical and/or sexual abuse in such cases is not uncommon.
