Under the feminist radar

Gilliam Gibbons, a British citizen teaching grade school in Sudan, asked a 7 year old student what he wanted to name a teddy bear as part of a school assignment. He said, "Muhammad," after his name.

Now, thanks to sharia, Ms Gibbons is facing 6 months in a Sudanese prison, 40 lashes or a fine. She should have insisted the teddy bear be named Jesus.

On this offer of violent disrespect to women feminism's leading light, the National Organization for Women, takes no position. Della Sentilles could not be reached for another misogynist comment.

Fortunately, we have Tammy Bruce making a point obvious to a rational being of any sex.

Sudan Charges British Teacher With Insulting Religion With 'Muhammad' Teddy Bear

...In the U.S., a spokeswoman for the National Organization for Women said the situation is definitely on the radar, and N.O.W. is not ignoring it.

But she added that the U.S.-based organization is not putting out a statement or taking a position.

Radio personality Tammy Bruce, former president of the Los Angles chapter of the National Organization for Women and past member of their board of directors, criticized the organization for not taking a stand.

“We have a duty to make a difference for women around the world,” Bruce told FOX News. “The supposed feminist establishment is refusing to take a position in this regard because they have no sensibility of what is right anymore. They're afraid of offending people. They are bound by political correctness.”

“The American feminist movement has not taken one stand to support the women of Iraq, the women of Afghanistan, the women of Iran,” she said. “It is the United States Marines who have been doing the feminist work by liberating women and children around the world.”
Hear, hear.
