Of course feminism means socialism

For we all do know that is is the capitalist patriarchy that must be fought against.

His original comments were echoed by the Socialist Party’s Maharashtra unit chief, Abu Azmi, who said that women who have sex outside marriage should be punished by death, even if they are raped.

“If rape happens with or without consent, it should be punished as prescribed in Islam”, Mr Azmi told the Mid-Day website.

“The solution is this: any woman, whether married or unmarried, who goes along with a man, with or without her consent, should be hanged. Both should be hanged. It shouldn’t be allowed even if a woman goes by consent.”

A socialist and a moron there. But I repeat myself.

  1. So Much for Subtlety

    Yadav is usually an Untouchable’s name. So as with many Indian fringe parties, presumably this is not really a socialist party per se, but a vehicle for caste grievances.

    And you have to say that his position has a certain logic to it. No time wasting trying to find out if consent was given or not. Just execute them all. But logical consistency is about all you can say for it.

    Still despite the stupidity, he does have half a point:

    Referring to a recent case from Mumbai in which three men were sentenced to death for carrying out two gang rapes, Mr Yadav told an election rally that rape happens because women lead men on.

    This is one of those things everyone knows but that we are no longer allowed to say in public.

    “Boys will be boys. Following a girl-boy fight, the girl complains she was raped,” he said.

    And this is undeniably true. Up to a point.

    The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is expected to win India’s ongoing elections, called Mr Yadav’s statement “insensitive and shameful”.

    And you have to admire the nerve of the BJP. They are about to elect a Muslim barbequer as PM but they can bleat about insensitivity?

    As much as a fool as this man is, I have to say one things brings out some degree of sympathy:

    Susieben Shah, chairperson of the Maharashtra Commission for Women, told the Indian Express that she had issued a notice for Mr Azmi to appear in person to explain his statement.

    Anyone called before a panel of what I take to be Julie Bindel-wannabes deserves feeling from his fellow man.

    “His statement is deplorable, irresponsible and condemnable … When you are in a position of power, you are duty-bound to protect women?” she said. “I call upon all women to come out in large numbers like they did in Bastar, Vidarbha and Delhi to vote for a leader who protects women’s dignity.”

    No, you are not. This is just the last gasp of the British gentleman. There is no reason why men should especially protect women. Most of the time it would be offensive even to suggest so.

    And if they think a street full of Dianne Abbotts, Harriet Harmons and so on is going to do their cause any good, well, who wants to bet the next PM will be called Yadav?

  2. “‘…it should be punished as prescribed in Islam’, Mr Azmi told…”

    Yes, let’s talk about moronic socialists.

  3. “Boys will be boys. Following a girl-boy fight, the girl complains she was raped,” he said.

    And this is undeniably true. Up to a point.


  4. So Much For Subtlety

    MC – “Really?”

    Up to a point. There are any number of cases reported in the media where pretty much this happened. Although the girl who gets drunk, has sex with another man, and then claims rape to save her relationship with her boyfriend seems more common.

    How common it is, no one knows and is now too ideological for anyone to be able to tell. But accusations of child abuse – a much more serious crime – are routine in custody cases.
