If i need to give a title to my blog it would be cultural tolerance, i have lived in different communities and closely interacted with people belonging to different nations, cultures, religions …
The thing i learned is to respect other people religions & cultures, and i despise those who try to get financial profit from attacking other cultures & or religions.
I have been reading about Femen a group of nobrain feminist activists based in Ukraine one of the biggest prostitution capitals of Europe and the world (40% of Ukraine economy is shadow economy).
What does this group do? they take topless pictures protesting against anything that would bring the cameras and the journalists!
Why? don’t be fooled not all organizations seek the greater good, organizations are a profitable business! the donations organizations get are unbelievable! FEMEN’s office in the Ukrainian capital, costs the organization over $2,500 monthly and each member’s salary was around $1,000 (average salary in Ukraine is $300). Radio Svoboda claimed to have information that FEMEN activists were paid EUR 2,500 a month and protesters EUR 1,000.
So what do these women do? whatever it takes to get media attention and donations, after all it’s a good business!
So they show up naked, to protest anything that they think would get media attention, WHAT A GOOD BUSINESS!
lately they turned their eyes towards the Islamic world, well afterall there’s so much opportunities in the middle east and Muslim world to get headlines … and furthermore they would be described as freedom fighters 😛
So they started staging events, like if there’s a lack of causes they can fight for, they can fight for girls education in Afghanistan > but that would not suit their sexual protest style,
they could fight for women driving in Saudi arabia > but again they can not protest topless for this, it would be meaningless.
they can fight for nationality rights for kids of Lebanese women married to foreign men > then again that doesn’t enter in their style.
they can fight against rape, gang rape in india, brazil, …
they can fight against honor killing, domestic violence, sexism…
But NO, because they can not explain running naked as a sign of protest!
So instead they recruit girls in the middle east to post naked photos and wait for a an expected reaction, (in the middle east you can get a fatwa or death threats for the slightest things, there’s always a crazy imam somewhere that can consider what you are doing as a kind of corrupting the population, but who said that they are taken seriously ?!)
This what happened, a 19 year old Femen Tunisian activist posted on Tunisian Femen facebook page topless photos :
As expected, she got a fatwa against her, so the FEMEN organized Topless Jihad day, protesting naked (as usual), and getting international headlines ….
if they know that would happen, why did they pay the poor girl to do such a thing ? … again it’s all about donations and media attention …
Furthermore, such an act even if there was no threats associated with it would label the girl as a “slµt” in the very conservative country, but wait, even in the much less conservative west a 19 yr old girl posting a topless picture of herself on a page with thousands of people would not be considered a good idea, and would cause the young girl social troubles …
FEMEN is a dangerous organization, because they do not care about the safety of their members as long as they get headlines and donations.
FEMEN protesting is stupid, and degrading for women, and i’m pretty sure there’s much more effective ways to protest than having a group of slµts running naked.
