    No more evidence is needed to show just how confused these women actually are.

    Remember all the women's marches after the revelations about the Rotherham rape gangs? No, me either.
    Your point being? Maybe go organise one. You don't have to be a woman to protest against something as grotesque as rape. Get some people together and go on a march :-)

    But anyways my point was that the phrase Allahu Akbar has been abused a lot, but the majority of Muslims use it in a peaceful manner

    The swastika and the "Nazi salute" were commonplace and respectable throughout the world before they were "abused" by a certain group. They still haven't recovered!

    Before WW2, all Americans did the straight-armed "Bellamy" salute while saying the Pledge of Allegience, but because of its adoption by European fascists, they changed it to the "hand over the heart" gesture.

    Use and perception often changes, and sometimes you just have to accept that.

    I never understood why it's so difficult for some people to spell it the right way. And I know you know the correct spelling. And it's not Koran, it's Quran.
    I'm sorry.

    Lol I don't think the women in that video were Muslims.

    The majority are irrelevant, in this case.

    I know they do and yeah I have no idea why White women feel the need to appropriate Islamic culture.

    I would have thought that it is another example of a symbol, gesture, word or phrase that was previously in general use and not considered offensive but is now anything but. Whether it was because particular groups chose to take offence at it or hijacked it for other nefarious reasons the fact remains it/they can longer be used without it causing trouble

    Ah, I see what you mean.
    Yes, it was once acceptable but is no longer, but the reasons for that are fundamentally different. Rather than being an inherently harmless and inoffensive symbol that was appropriated by the unnaceptable, the Gollywog was something that had always been questionable (look up its history in literature) and changing attitudes led to wider society realising that it was an offensive and unacceptable characterisation.

    If there had been over a decade of extremist Christian terrorism, where attackers yelled "in the name of the Lord" before each atrocity, those words would now have a definite negative context amongst non-Christians. And understandably so.

    Negative or positive is a subjective judgement, but you'll find that they are all reasonable and rational.

    Allahu akbar doesn't mean anything bad, it just means "Allah is great". Trump is anti-islam, so naturally islamists are anti-Trump, so naturally feminists are pro-islam.
    If they actually knew how Islam considers women's worth they would distance themselves from that toxic ideology immediately. Or so I hope.

    Koran is a perfectly acceptable spelling variant.

    Well, it was, kinda.
    The analogy of Christianity was to show why some people are justified in feeling uncomfortable when they hear Allahu akbar.

    Also, you should follow me, then you'd see many more posts that have nothing to do with Islam. Come on, join the party. Once I get to 100 followers, I'm going to get cake and bubbly for us all (some areas may not be covered)
