The Hour of the Furnaces/La hora de los hornos (Fernando E. Solanas & Octavio Getino, 1968)
Palestinian poet and activist Rafeef Ziadah wrote this poem — “Shades of Anger” — after a man kicked her in the guts and said “You deserve to be raped before you have your terrorist children.”
“ For different reasons, more sympathetic historians of sexuality also argue that the word “homosexual” is not adequate to describe the array of sexualities in nonwestern societies.  “Even the young man you may have just done everything with sexually will say no if you ask him if he is ‘gay,’” writes Nii Ajen of West African men. “And if you should ask that same man if there is homosexuality in Africa, a likely response will be ‘No, there is nothing like that in Africa.’”  As Bleys suggests, the concept of homosexuality has a distinctly western history and flavor, having emerged out of sexology studies in nineteenth century Europe.  In the late twentieth century it came to connote a permanent identity or at the very least a lifestyle decision rather than a simple description of a physical act or a same-sex encounter that occurs within a range of other identity-defining behaviors that may include heterosexual marriage.  The argument that there are no homosexuals in Africa thus stems, at least in part, from the incompatibility between the modern western conception of homosexuality as a “lifestyle,” or a constitutive identity, and alternative local constructions of sexuality as one element of human identity among many other more significant elements, including generation, social status, wealth, education, ethnicity, and religious affiliation. ”

“ Detainees in US custody in Abu Ghraib, Kandahar and Bagram (where many were taken to before Guantanamo) have reported being sodomised with broomsticks, a ‘chemical light’ or rifles. Other forms of sexual humiliation reported have been; parading men naked in front of female soldiers, forcing them to wear women’s underwear and dance with other men, forcing them to undress in front of female interrogators and guards, touching their genitals or provoking them in a ‘humiliating’ way and forcing them to watch pornography. Most detainees in U.S. custody have alleged that they were either raped, threatened with rape, or anally probed. Sexual violence is a war crime. Sexual humiliation is used to induce feelings of humiliation and fear. ”

I oppose IAW because there isn’t an Arab country that treats women with respect like Israel does.
This, by far, is the shittiest post I’ve ever seen on tumblr.
I’ll quote levantineviper: ”There isn’t an Arab country that treats women with respect like Israel does.”
To help you see how respect is defined in “Israel”, here are a few examples of instances in which respect is shown according to “Israelis”:
- When you drop bombs on someone’s house and murder their entire family you are treating them with respect.
- When you make women give birth at checkpoints you are treating them with respect.
- When you burn down a woman’s trees and take away her livelihood you are treating her with respect.
- When you take away a mother’s child to be imprisoned you are treating her with respect.
- When you deprive a woman of her house and shelter you are treating her with respect.
- When you restrict a woman’s ability to move between places you are treating her with respect.
- When you deprive women of their homeland and send them into exile as refugees you are treating them with respect.
- When you assault, beat, and humiliate women you are treating them with respect.

On Feb. 14, a group of activists in Charleston, S.C., unveiled a life-size statue of Denmark Vesey, a black abolitionist who was executed in 1822 for leading a failed slave rebellion in the city.
For many people, Vesey was a freedom fighter and a proto-civil rights…
