Most west-coast women who realize they hate men turn into rabid feminists, hole up in lesbian bars, and isolate themselves from the rest of society. Islamic man-haters, however, do things differently. Seattle Somali Muslim Jamila Farole, who is an activist for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and her older sister tried to push sharia-based gender-segregation rules upon a taxpayer-funded pool. She then openly denied that her effort had anything to do with sharia… but we all know better.
Farole, a former student at the University of Washington (which was also attended by the menace Omar Abdelbadie), asked for gender-segregated swimming times at the public pool in Tukwila, WA, a suburb of Seattle. “In Islam, women need to have their privacy and preserve their modesty,” Farole explained. Maybe in the seventh century that was how things were, but lady, it’s the 21st century. Get with the times. Farole’s demands grew even more absurd as she explained that pool ideally “would have the windows covered and also the doors so no outsiders could see in.” Really? Is it that big of a deal if a dude sees you in your hideous burkini? Besides, I highly doubt any dude would want to perv on Farole anyway, just saying. Of course, this Muslimah’s real motive is clear as day to those of us familiar with Muslims and sharia, though she vehemently denied it: “It’s not like we are trying to bring sharia law into a secular society.” Uhh, that’s exactly what Farole is trying to do; create avenues in secular society for people to avoid integrating and slowly creep sharia-compliance into public institutions.
“This isn’t just something I’m doing,” Farole explained when asked about her pool crusade. “It’s a commandment from God; men and women are not to mix together. That’s my religious belief,” The fact that people didn’t immediately dismiss and mock her absurd request says a lot about how spineless Washingtonians are when it comes to demands made by Muslims. Also, doesn’t it say a lot about Islam’s incompatibility with western culture if it forbids men and women from interacting?
Thankfully, a concerned citizen filed a complaint with the city about this blatant encroachment of sharia. Though Farole was educated at a western university, clearly the liberal influence of academia mostly went in one ear and out the other… except for the whole race-card gimmick. “It is disheartening to know that the Tukwila City Council is threatening that they will terminate the female only swims because of the complaints of one white man who said that we are discriminating against male swimmers,” Farole stated. How is a female-only swim time paid for with taxpayer money not a form of discrimination against men?! And what does race have to do with anything?! There are white Muslims whose ideas are just as crazy as Farole’s! “Instead, we feel like they are discriminating against us since the majority of women who swim there are Muslim women.” No, Muslimahs, it’s you who are discriminating against men by refusing to associate with them or allow them to swim with you. You are not entitled to sharia-compliant accommodations at establishments paid for by taxpayers.
“We have the pool for female only swimmers because it is a part of our culture to have privacy when swimming in public places,” Farole wrote on a causes.com page she created to support the sharia swimming. Well, it’s part of our American culture not to segregate by gender. Sexism is so 19th century! Farole continued, “We feel that this is an injustice that must be stopped!” The only injustice is that men aren’t able to swim from 3:30-5:00 on Sunday afternoons in the Tukwila pool thanks to entitled Muslimahs like Farole who think the world has to bow to their every seventh-century whim. Though she claimed the segregated swims weren’t just for Muslim women, she posted numerous events on Facebook like this one called “Sisters Swim” targeted specifically at Muslimahs who share her phobia of the 21st century.
The Tukwila City Council implemented a male-only swim session after the female-only session, though its popularity is minimal except with creepy old gay bear-types. The issue of the segregated swims is still under review.
