Re: [humanism-174] Arab atheists inching out

The threat of physical harm--beatings, torture, death, has always been a staple of the Abrahamic religions.  Today Islam is the primary practitioner and the countries in which Islam is predominant are theocracies in practice if not in name.  Thus, a woman protesting barbaric Quran-based treatment needs a whole lot more courage than does a woman in downtown Cleveland in 1969 removing her bra as a protest!
 
btw, more than a few women here in the U.S. WERE beaten and in some cases killed during protests!  Kent State, Chicago Democratic Convention, the South during freedom marches, the New York sweatshop protests, etc.

Bra burning is one thing. Women weren't being kept in their homes because they didn't wear bras. They didn't get beaten for not wearing bras.

It's gotta be tough coming out from under the uber-oppressive, mind-warping thumb of Islam!
