It's sick that this is happening in France.

Focus: Women made to keep low profile in some French suburbs

At least these women aren't afraid to disagree with brown people instead of ignoring the problems.



Religious fundamentalists (who are 99.9% of the time Muslims) are a serious problem for women's rights globally.

So true. However some people are actually thinking the opposite...


Muslims Are the True Feminists

So not being allowed out in public and being forced to cover yourself entirely is the new feminism <_<;;

Fucking hell, now I know what my japanese friend meant when she said watching anime with english subs was a pain in the ass for her.

More on topic, this is definitely a really shitty thing. I'm very happy to hear a solution is already in progress and that no violence has broken out, as that unfortunately seems to be the go-to solution for many people nowadays.

I keep listening for Japanese words myself :P. Though subtitles don't bug me in the least.

That's pulled so deep out of your ass I'm surprised you can't taste your fingers.

Sevran is one of the poorest parts of France. Nothing good comes from mixing poverty, economic segregation and immigration ( Something France really needs to learn from Belgium ). On one hand Sevran is not as bleak as the video indicates ( the cafe they visited is blocks away from mixed gender youth centers, etc ). On the other hand it sounds like this sort of shit is allowed to go on, on the down low, because the men are an important voting bloc in local politics. So they're being appeased for votes.

That's probably because (and you must forgive me for assuming here, but you must admit it's statistically likely) you do not speak french, or at least not as a first language. It's one thing to hear something in a language you do not understand while reading it in one you do, but when you understand the languages you both read and hear it's really confusing. It's like your attention is being pulled from two different sides, if that makes any sense.

Uuuggghhh, yes. I can't help but look at the subtitles even when I understand both languages. Anime has trained me too long. >.>

I mean it makes sense if you assume he's measuring the amount of problems caused by fundamentalists on a global scale. His numbers are definitely way off in terms of just numbers but there aren't exactly any major wars against radical christians or hindus in recent history, despite the extreme number of those assholes.

At least as far as I recall anyway.

Your right I don't know how to speak French. I feel no need to learn how to speak surrender monkey :P. You really drew that out there.

Personally I tend to focus on either the language or subtitles though I have been teaching myself to do both while learning and reinforcing Japanese.

So it makes sense if we assume something completely different and with a completely different number that's way off? Um, no. That doesn't actually make sense. It's also giving him way too much credit.

Religious fundamentalists cause problems everywhere. Regardless of religion. As for major wars, that's a pretty slippery statement. Shit like ISIS only seems like a much larger threat than it is because the Western world gives it a disproportionate amount of attention. The conflict with the largest global implications right now is Syria and that's on Assad and Russia, not ISIS. ISIS is, as they always have, just taking advantage of destabilization.

Turn your attention to Africa though and you'll see Christians "cleansing" Muslims en mass and pulling shit like torture and cannibalism. But we don't pay attention because eh, its Africa. It can't be used as a political boogie man or a terrifying media ratings booster.

A war is only as "major" as we're told it is by a 24/7 news cycle. -.-

Your "Lebanese Christian Lady" is a well known Islamaphobe and borderline conspiracy theorist.

Also, I'm going to go right ahead and assume you don't know much about Lebanon and what you do know you got entirely from this video. -.-

Hmm, it seems you're right on the money there, I'm really surprised I didn't know that.
