    Fair enough response but the vast majority of your initial criticism tends to gravitate around the response of Muslim feminists to Nour's decision- you seem to have slyly skipped the retort I gave to this.

    You say in your initial post that:

    "The activist Muslim feminists who have been outraged by Tagouri are part of the old guard second-wave feminism of the last century that sees things like pornography as exploitation and commodification. The intellectual and spiritual heirs of those feminists are modern day third-wave feminists, who like teenagers rebelling against their parents, have embraced sexualization, pornography, etc., as empowering and liberating."

    That is an extremely unfair allegation to hordes of Muslim women who identify as feminists and are doing excellent work for the betterment of women's rights around the globe. Yes third wave feminism movements often concentrate on wholly irrelevant and petty things and yes, Western feminists have a tendency to orientalise women of other cultures and view themselves as "saviours".

    Regardless, feminism in its essence, in its dictionary definition is merely the belief that men and women have equal rights. It is outrageous to put the millions of men and women fighting tooth to nail against rape, domestic violence, FGM, forced marriage and identifying as feminists in the same category as third wave Western feminists.

    Your attempt to attack the "ideology" of Feminism is cute. But you would be better off tackling the frankly staggering amount of serious problems facing a frankly pathetic and disunited Islamic community at the moment.
    I skipped it because it was a quoted post and the observations of someone else, not myself. But anyways, my belief is that you are taking offense/arguing over nothing here - the clear intention of the post is in criticism of some of those in Western countries who focus on the 'empowerment' BS rather than those who defend traditional feminist ideals as the ones you mentioned - you are conflating the issue as if the author is discrediting feminism as a whole.

    Irregardless, fundamentally, feminism isn't something Muslims should care about directly per se - rather Muslims should seek establishing justice as per the teachings of Islam and through the Shariah, and then naturally the condition of women will improve, which will cover some common issues that Feminism wishes to address (although perhaps not all of them)

    I already try to tackle the disunity issue in a way that I see fit; again you are making the mistake in assuming I am incable of doing other things or holding beliefs on a wider range of issues, as if me mentioning one topic means I can no longer address another topic - you are trying to fit a square block in a traingle hole with your expectations and assumptions on what I believe and do.
