How could such spirited women [Saudi females], smart and successful on every other level, acquiesce in their own subordination?
I was puzzling over that one when it hit me: As a Catholic woman, I was doing the same thing.
I, too, belonged to an inbred and wealthy men’s club cloistered behind walls and disdaining modernity.
I, too, remained part of an autocratic society that repressed women and ignored their progress in the secular world.
Gee, Maureen, conflating your own petty misery with this:
That's a woman receiving lashes for alleged adultery. Or this:
That's a woman who was stoned to death for alleged adultery. Or this:
That's a woman who was beheaded for... something. Must've been bad, though.
Truth be told, Mo, conflating your view of the Catholic Church and all of its painful and ugly scandals, with an endemic, sanctioned culture of brutality and misogyny seems a tad, well, stupid. Moronic, in fact.
It's amazing how none of these brave, bold Times columnists ever screw up enough courage to attack real religious extremism.
Here's hoping Pinchy moves MoDo behind a pay-wall again -- and soon. Her material is even more pathetic than the Bush-Cheney-Plame-Neocon column she ran for roughly 200 weeks in a row.
