Your quote ‘This is both sad and amusing’.
Where woman are concerned it is never amusing when they are subjected to rules and regulations that demean their high status afforded to them by Allah in the Quran. Men see themselves as the ‘chosen people’; to rule when they have not trained their minds according to His teachings. Where Mullahs, all men, are concerned, it is like the patients taking over the asylum!
All the topics you listed are of importance because they affect half the worlds population. If the world does turn to N2 Islam, it is what women can expect.
The point of the discussions is not to amuse but show where the wrongs are AND seek to correct them. Cultures play no part in this; women’s rights are their Allah given rights, not ours to play with.
Mind set, yes; get the mind of men re-tuned to the Quran, and then we will not see the malpractices.
Then again, it’s only the women!
