Great to see what we (the defenders of classical liberalism/Counter-Jihad) have been saying for years, is mainstreaming in the legacy media.
Time to end the culture of abuse where women are less than second-class citizens
NOT all cultures are equal. Some are backward, barbaric and in 2017 still treat women as less than second-class citizens.
Acknowledging this indisputable fact will offend the sensibilities of regressive Left snowflakes who tolerate misogyny as long as it’s perpetrated by those from culturally diverse backgrounds.
Honour killings, forced marriages, forced veiling, deprivation of liberty and genital mutilation are just some of the horrors inflicted on women and girls around the world in the name of religion or culture.
Australians can no longer turn a blind eye to such abuses, particularly when our own citizens are victims.
It’s not just happening in Mogadishu or Mosul. Girls are being brutalised right here in Melbourne.
Last Friday, in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, police alleged that a bride under the age of 16 was raped by her husband after being forced into marriage. The traditional Islamic ceremony allegedly took place last year, conducted by a respected local cleric, Ibrahim Omerdic.
On the same day, a study conducted by the Australian paediatric surveillance unit at Westmead children’s hospital revealed that children as young as five months old are being subjected to the heinous cruelty of female genital mutilation.
Even the least severe form of genital cutting can leave the victim in severe long-term pain.
The irreversible procedure has been inflicted on Australian girls, some here, and some overseas. The excruciating operation is typically performed without anaesthesia.
Many FGM victims are cut before they migrate here.
There are of course many complications for victims of FGM.
The demand for medical assistance has been so great that the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne has a dedicated clinic to assist women who have suffered the procedure.
The clinic opened in 2010 — the same year the hospital reported treating 600 to 700 women every year who have suffered FGM.
That’s just one hospital in one city in one year.
