What if men had menstrual cycle

Many are of the opinion that these strange university protests that entail the putting up of sanitary products in public spaces, starting in Jamia and spreading to Jadavpur, are not in good taste. But why should they be?

If menfolk happened to have menstrual cycles instead of women, this would hardly have occasioned social shame for them. Instead, they would have celebrated their stains, declared the blood sacred and exhibited with considerable pride the sanitary pads that bore the signs of their power. Women’s menstrual cycles, on the other hand, have been deemed so hateful and their blood so impure for so long, that it is finally time for women to rediscover the sacrality of their own blood.

Social stigma

When men open their shirts in public, scribble slogans all over their bodies and walk with pride, they are heralded as harbingers of true revolution — people have felt awed and inspired by such sights, poets have written paeans in their praise, artists have immortalised such scenes on canvas and filmmakers have made memorable cinema of such landmark protests. When FEMEN activists do the very same thing, and display their nudity adorned with political slogans, policemen arrive in leaps and bounds and forthwith drag them all to the prison.

Male bodies inscribed with political will are things of beauty, and female bodies of the same order are objects of social stigma, shame and infringement. It’s because a women’s nudity disarms the conservatives, it makes them uncomfortable. Rupi Kaur’s photograph documenting menstrual blood opened a can of worms. Instagram removed the photograph and instantly, social media were alight with debates. I think the photograph was a stroke of genius. So was Deepika Padukone’s video, My Choice. Women are undergoing a sudden awakening everywhere. This awakening is becoming more and more necessary for the survival of mankind as a whole.

The thought of one half of the species brutally repressing the other half by virtue of sexual discrimination, through various tools of torture ranging from sheer brute force to social conditioning and superstition, for thousands of years, is perhaps more frightening as any other human rights violation. This awakening has been long due. The society mustn’t run by muscles, it must be run by liberated minds. It is ludicrous to think that the primary law lurking underneath sexual and gender discrimination is nothing but the discrepancy of physical force between the male and female of this species.

When I described in detail, in the first part of my autobiography, My Girlhood, the events leading to my first menstrual period, or later, how I was sexually abused, many disapproved of this with the sneering civility characteristically belonging to the bourgeoisie. I pity them, and I have never brought myself to pander to their socially curated tastefulness.

Banned book

My Girlhood was banned by the Haseena government in 1999. It’s still banned in Bangladesh. The middle classes are of the opinion that no decent woman belonging from a good family could have described, in gory details and with utter “shamelessness”, the indignity of the sexual abuse she had suffered. Some famous male authors have personally told me, “You know, the book was very well written, but you shouldn’t have described the sexual encounters. That was vulgar”.

Oh yes. When women write about the sexual crimes perpetrated against them, they become offensive; when they tell stories belonging to their own bodies, they are deemed notorious. But when men offer up depictions of female nudity and sexual intercourse, they become the grand documenters of high art.

Moral guardians

It seems that women’s bodies are the copyrighted properties of male authors and artists, for if women were to explore such areas, they would surely be no more than sluts. When women refuse to abide by these rules instituted by men, when they sidestep the rules laid down about what to say and when, and how far to go with it, this society’s men feel some amount of righteous indignation.

If this society hasn’t defamed you as a slut and whore, if you haven’t yet been able to confound at least a few of the society’s self-appointed moral guardians, then there isn’t much hope for you as a feminist. The named, on the other hand, are those who shall change and alter the fabric of this rotting state, and bring on a new evolution that shall signal a new kind of egalitarian atmosphere.

I therefore salute the students who have stepped forward to protest on behalf of all women who are stigmatised during their menstrual cycles. It is the duty of educational institutions to spearhead the revolution against superstitions, stigmas, social and sexual discrimination and spread social awareness and illumination amongst the common people. It is their moral obligation to take up the fight for womens’ rights, and they have done a good job of it.

Muslims are the fastest growing religious group

Muslims are the world’s fastest-growing religious group, says Pew Research.

The expected growth of Islam around the world is perhaps the most striking finding in the recent Pew Research Center report projecting the future of religious groups. Indeed, Muslims will grow more than twice as fast as the overall world population between 2010 and 2050 and, in the second half of this century, will likely surpass Christians as the world’s largest religious group.

While the world’s population is projected to grow 35% in the coming decades, the number of Muslims is expected to increase by 73% – from 1.6 billion in 2010 to 2.8 billion in 2050. In 2010, Muslims made up 23.2% of the global population. Four decades later, they are expected to make up about three-in-ten of the world’s people (29.7%).

By 2050, Muslims will be nearly as numerous as Christians, who are projected to remain the world’s largest religious group at 31.4% of the global population.

Muslims are the only major religious group which is increasing faster than the world’ population as a whole. It is scary. Maybe a hell of a lot of Muslims would join Muslim terrorist organizations, and they would turn the world into Darul Islam, where not a single non-Muslim will be allowed to live. In the meantime, to save the world it is necessary to abolish Muslim terrorist organizations. Terrorists must be stopped and fundamentalists must not grow.

The main reasons for Islam’s growth ultimately involve simple demographics. To begin with, Muslims have more children than members of the seven other major religious groups analyzed in the study. Each Muslim woman has an average of 3.1 children, significantly above the next-highest group (Christians at 2.7) and the average of all non-Muslims (2.3). In all major regions where there is a sizable Muslim population, Muslim fertility exceeds non-Muslim fertility.

The growth of the Muslim population also is helped by the fact that Muslims have the youngest median age (23 in 2010) of all major religious groups, seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims (30). A larger share of Muslims will soon be at the point in their lives when people begin having children. This, combined with high fertility rates, will accelerate Muslim population growth.

Large numbers of people are also converting to Islam. I sometimes do not understand why women convert. Educated and intelligent women convert to Islam knowing that Islam oppresses women And Islam is not reformed like other religion.

More than a third of Muslims are concentrated in Africa and the Middle East, regions that are projected to have the biggest population increases. But even within these high-growth regions – as well as others – Muslims are projected to grow faster than members of other groups. For example, Muslims in sub-Saharan Africa, on average, are younger and have higher fertility than the overall population of the region. In fact, Muslims are expected to grow as a percentage of every region except Latin America and the Caribbean, where relatively few Muslims live.

The same dynamics hold true in many countries where Muslims live in large numbers alongside other religious groups. For example, India’s number of Muslims is growing at a faster rate than the country’s majority Hindu population, and is projected to rise from 14.4% of India’s 2010 population to 18.4% (or 311 million people) in 2050. And while there were roughly equal numbers of Muslims and Christians in Nigeria as of 2010, Muslims have higher fertility there and are expected to grow to a solid majority of Nigeria’s population (58.5%) in 2050.

Meanwhile, religious switching, which is expected to hinder the growth of some other religious groups, is not expected to have a negative net impact on Muslims. By contrast, between 2010 and 2050, Christianity is projected to have a net loss of more than 60 million adherents worldwide through religious switching.

Oh My Goosebumps!

A great writer died.

guntar-grass'94
Remembering those days when I met him and talked to him. In Prague, in Berlin. He supported me and my struggle. He was nice, kind, strong, humorous. He was great as a writer and as a person. But still I do not understand why he hid for decades that he had served in the Waffen-SS during the war. I can not forgive him for hiding the truth. And again, I forgive him for not hiding the truth. Good that he revealed the truth while he was alive, in 2006. Good that he revealed, otherwise it would have been worse if people discovered the truth after his death.

A new fatwa from Saudi grand mufti: Men are allowed to eat their wives.

What else is left? Now men are allowed to eat their wives.

Read the news.

Saudi Arabia’s highest religious authority has issued a fatwa allowing a starving man to eat his wife in order to save himself. Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh, according to the report, said that the act would display the wife’s obedience to her husband and her willingness to become one with his flesh.

Women sacrifice their happiness to make men happy. Now women have to be eaten alive in order to satisfy men’s hunger.

Fuck the fucking grand mufti. Fuck the fucking Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh. Fuck the fucking misogynist cannibal. I love to fuck his brains out, I promise.

Islamists killed students

db6fd17f

Al Shabaab, an Islamic terrorist organization entered a Kenyan university and killed nearly 150 people. I am not surprised. Some Muslims want to practice authentic Islam exactly the way prophet Muhammad practiced 1400 years ago. Don’t say that he did not like violence. There are hundreds of Koranic verses as well as Hadiths preach violence. These Muslims, the followers of Muhammad have many different groups. ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab etc.

Islamists systemically murdering intellectuals

Ansarullah Bangla team is an Islamic terrorist organization in Bangladesh. The group takes its ideology from Anwar Al-Awlaki, a Yemen-based Al-Qaeda activist, translations of whose Jihadi texts has been found on the Ansarullah Team website.

Bangladesh police detective disclosed important information which was published in yesterday’s Jugantor newspaper. Ansarullah Bangla team planned to murder all the intellectuals whoever criticized Islam. More than 100 intellectuals and writers are in their hit list. They already brutally killed many talented people including blogger Rajib Haider, blogger and writer Avijit Roy, blogger Washiqur Rahman for criticism of Islam. They say that Allah gets happy if they kill nonbelievers with knives or swords rather than pistols or rifles, and it is better if they kill from the behind instead of the front. They also say that they try to do beheading because Allah prefers beheading.

The team has many hundreds of sleeper cells who are trained to murder in the name of Allah. A sleeper cell does not know about the other sleeper cell. They don’t have more than 3 to 5 members in a sleeper cell. Sleeper cells believe it is their religious duty to kill infidels. There is no doubt that they are massively brainwashed. After murdering Avijit Roy, Rezwanul Azad Rana, the current leader of Amsarullah Bangla team left the country for Australia.

After investigating terrorist activities for months, the police said, the terrorist organization decided to go to India to murder Taslima Nasreen, the writer. The news is in the 2nd page of the Jugantor newspaper. The clipping is attached.
Yep, I am their biggest target. And I am bloody worried.

Bangladesh is not a place for freethinkers.

Avijit Roy was brutally murdered in Bangladesh a month ago. The murderers have not yet been arrested. And yesterday another blogger, atheist and secular humanist Washikur Rahman Babu was brutally murdered by Islamists. Their crime was that they criticized Islam. Bangladeshi Islamists have been systemically murdering all freethinkers.

The murderers of Babu are the Madrasa students. They are brainwashed. They were ordered by their madrasa teacher to kill Washikur Babu. Madrasa students just followed their teacher’s order. Madrasas and mosques are the breeding ground for terrorists. But governments still continue building more madrasas and more mosques all over the country to get votes from ignorant masses. I am not surprised when I hear freethinkers are getting murdered in Bangladesh. Bangladesh has laws against blasphemy. Governments don’t spare ministers when they say unsatisfactory comments on Islam. State religion is Islam. Popular media, such as radio and television praise Islam. Family laws are based on Islam. All the established institutions claim that they all are devout Muslims. There is always a competition between major political parties who would be more religious than others. More women are wearing hijabs, and men are becoming more misogynists. It is not the country I knew in my childhood and adolescence.

Let’s see why Islamists killed Washikur Babu. What he really wrote.

On his page, Rahman reposted a cartoon depicting Prophet Mohammed from the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo. He wished a happy birthday to author Taslima Nasreen, who was forced to flee Bangladesh due to death threats from fundamentalists. And he “liked” a picture of sausages wrapped in crescent rolls that someone had captioned, “Pigs in burqas.” Posts threatening him were numerous. “Get ready for the afterlife,” one person commented on one of his posts. “See you in hell,” said another. He used to write under the pseudonym “Stupid Man” on a blog but switched to posting on Facebook after 2011. On Facebook, he is credited for a series, “Jaw-crushing answers to insulting comments of atheists.” There, he posted questions that critics of Islam often raised and then answered them. But he paired the answers in such a way that they highlighted the contradiction within Islam. For example, one question asked what proof was there that the Quran was the word of God. The answer, “Mohammed said in his own words that the Quran is the word of God. Since Mohammed is the messenger of Allah, his claims are true.” He placed the question next to one that asked, “What is the proof that Mohammed was the messenger of Allah?” The answer, “The Quran claims that Mohammed was the messenger of Allah. And since the Quran is God’s word, its claims must be true.”

No Bangladesh government takes action against the Muslim terrorists when they kill atheists and freethinkers. Even so called moderate Muslims do not mind if atheists get brutally murdered. They rather blame atheist bloggers for writing blogs.
