    Depends on what type of feminism he's talking about, but it sounds like he just wants to help.

    Isn't that what Christopher Hitchens has indirectly been saying for years, before his death?

    So women and men have equal rights in Islam? Or are you against equal rights? (I'm not attacking you, just curious as to your view)

    If by equal rights you mean exactly the same, then no. Men have some rights women don't have and vice versa, because they have different roles and responsibilities.
    But at the end of the day God will judge them both equally according to their actions.

    The judgement can't be equal unless the rules that apply are also equal. To put it more accurately: your god will judge everyone according to the rules that apply to their sex (e.g. a Muslim man taking a Christian wife would not be considered a sin, but the reverse would).

    Do you have a list or can you tell us of all the rights men have and women don't compared to those that only women have?

    Islam is correlated with high birth rates.

    Feminism is correlated with extremely low, usually below replacement, birth rates.

    While out of the two my personal preference is for feminism, an ideology group that keeps shrinking every generation isn't likely to win in the long term against one that keeps expanding. The lack of incentive to have children in a feminist welfare state is a problem with which its supporters have not adequately engaged; to the extent they even acknowledge it exists, their proposal is to import more muslims to replace the missing grandchildren, which is insane.

    A successful social system probably looks neither like Islam nor feminist social democracy.
