So, the democrats tried throughout the last election to convince the votes that republicans are waging a 'war on women'... whatever that might be.  Apparently because republicans tend to loathe abortion (something that kills an awful lot of future women), those mean ol' republicans must be waging war on women.  I'm not sure of the logic behind that but there it is.

Meanwhile, across the pond there is a real 'war' on women and they're having a sale.  If you want a woman of your own, islam has some pretty reasonable prices: 

In response, the group determined specific prices for women and children, while “vowing to execute whoever violates those controls.” This is the worth of a human life, according to ISIS: 

  • A woman, 40 to 50-years-old: 50,000 dinars. ($42.90)
  • A woman, 30 to 40-years-old: 75,000 dinars. ($64.35)
  • A woman, 20 to 30-years-old: 100,000 dinars. ($85.80)
  • A girl, 10 to 20-years-old: 150,000 dinars. ($128.70)
  • A child, 1 to 9-years-old: 200,000 dinars. ($171.60) 

New York PostDaily MailRTInternational Business TimesOpposing Views and Christianity Today are among the few outlets to report on the story.

I'm not actually a conservative but I find it noteworthy that the rags that have chosen to air this atrocity are mainly conservative rags.

London Transport may have been started by private enterprise but has been municipalised many decades ago.  The owners canaccept or deny what they want.  They need the money so there scope is limited.  As for the specific advert being dicussed it is not the sort of thing that is going to bother me but if I had a 13 year old daughter not sure that I would be comfortable to her being subjected to such an unrealistic standard.

'Cause skinny bitches don't wear bikini's, right?  Oh, wait.  There are no skinny women in the world, right?

I'm curious as to why so many people try to rationalize muslims hatred of women?

This is not a new debate here.  Way back in the 60s the "anything goes" crowd prevailed in much of the media including broadcasting. Then along came Mary Whitehouse  After a struggle the 9 o'clock threshold was introduced - all without the help of any Mozzies.  Modern technology may be making such practices obsolete. 

ps, what makes you think that making female travelers feel inadequate about their body shape so wonderful?

 Why would any woman feel inadequate because of that advertisement?  Have you seen the male models that are used in similar advertisements?  Doesn't bother me a bit - I wouldn't even think about lobbying to prohibit those low body fat male models from making a living that way ...

And why ignore or dismiss islams treatment of women as irrelevant to this issue?

You may be confusing the misguided (read idiotic) world of models and modeling agencies (male and female) and the real world of normal people.  There is no law requiring those people to behave as they do.  Their behavior is their own choice.

And you ignored the primary question which asked why you're ignoring the crimes against women that islam is famous for.

Women are very powerful, WRS.  Their images in an advertising campaign are extremely effective and the most effective of those images tended to belong to those on the thin category.  That's the standard of beauty these days, right or wrong.  But modeling agencies may been taking 'thinness' too far and people are pushing back in the most honest way possible;  their wallets.  Kate Upton is the most famous of these push backs but there are many others.  That's the proper way to deal with the issue, not censorship & violence by a government.

Um... your lack of answering the question?

There were 200 complaints about the advert.  Do you have any evidence that the majority of those complaints were from Muslims or men?

200.

And, were we speaking of a book, you would be okay with banning it because 200 people objected?

From what I know of you, I think you would be dead against censoring literature.  Yet because the issue is islam and women... you're okay with the censorship.

That seems a bit odd to me especially considering the background of islam's oppression of women.

Let's lighten the mood;

Pakistan woman arrested over 'acid attack' on man

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-36549060
16 June 2016

A woman in Pakistan has been arrested after allegedly throwing acid on a man who had refused to marry her.

Officials say Momel Mai was in a long-term relationship with Sadaqat Ali, but was angry that he would not marry her.

Ms Mai says she acted in self-defence after being attacked. Mr Ali is being treated in hospital in Multan after suffering burns to 50% of his body.

Hundreds of acid attacks are reported in Pakistan each year but it is rare for men to be the victims...............>

Wandering off a poster a bit here.  They were not just predominately off Pakistani origin but predominately night cab drivers.  What is the problem - Pakistanis  or night workers with transport and an ability to spot unsupervised youngsters out after midnight (that is a clue that they were not being looked after)?  As for the practice one should not overlook the leftist controlled institutions which gave a pass on these activities (indeed actively protected them.  There is a lot of blame to be dispensed but not exclusively to towel heads.

I agree.  Still... do you really think organizing and maintaining a child sex slave trade is something that your average Brit would do?

Yes, our (modern)liberal friends are selectively blind and extraordinarily naive... but I would never suggest any one of them would stand by or condone what happened there if they actually knew what was going on.  Their hatred of 'cons' and 'right wingers' and anyone else insufficiently (modern)liberal translated into them dismissing as racism what was actually the truth.

 Muslims don't hate women who know their place.  The hatred is for those women who don't.

Slave sex trade is like drugs, ALL about the money.   Not sure any man or woman with money is against it, privately.

Perhaps you would prefer the word, 'contempt', rather than hate?

Slave sex trade is like drugs, ALL about the money.   Not sure any man or woman with money is against it, privately.
Um, I don't think that's true... either part.  A religion that puts women in the position of slave and baby factory, that would perpetuate and elevate the idea that women are for sex and forced labor.  The sex slave trade currently in vogue across the middle east and particularly in isis controlled territory offers unlimited sex for cheap and sans responsibility.

I have money.  I'm uninterested in having a slave or sex slave.  I doubt that I am uncommon.

Lies about a brighter future, and then, no way out.  
Are you referring to the recruitment of young women by isis and islam?

Government has failed when that is possible.
Government these days and across the globe is mainly about failure and 'fixing' previous government failures.

With today's tech, how is that inconceivable, made possible?
I'm not sure what you mean here...

 Didn't your personal willingness to purchase prove my point .....just an assumption until you added credence.

Trans women are shocked to find what men really think of women....what automatic respect they receive as men that they had to work so hard for as a women......things they would never hear men say.

Nonetheless, your thesis is basically sound though war on women might not be precise since it suggests killing them and using them is more the intent:

Smart phone apps and shares databases that contain their photographs and the names of their owners to prevent their escape through ISIS checkpoints.  The fighters are assassinating smugglers who rescue the captives, just as funds to buy the women out of slavery are drying up.

KARACHI/ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - The brother of Qandeel Baloch, whose risqué social media posts both titillated and appalled conservative Pakistan, on Sunday admitted to strangling her in a crime that reignited debate about so-called "honor killings" in the South Asian nation.

Muhammad Waseem said he gave a "tablet" to Baloch to subdue her and then strangled her in their family home over the weekend.

"I have no regrets," he told journalists in a press conference arranged by the police early on Sunday.

alaskaone did not exhibit any willingness to purchase.  Read what he said again ...

"... I have money.  I'm uninterested in having a slave or sex slave.  I doubt that I am uncommon.  ..."  alaskaone

Uninterested - that means "not interested" - and he states his doubt that he's not unusual.

I agree with him - I could not morally purchase another human being for any purpose.  One of the foundation principles of a classical liberal is personal interaction by mutual voluntary consent.  Holding someone in slavery is by definition NOT voluntary.

 I read about that "honor" killing this morning, alaskaone - condoned by the "conservative" arm of the "religion of peace".

That is the definition of "misogynism".

Thanks, I misread his post.
Apologies.......
The two of you are not representative, and it's nice that you feel you are, but there's money in the sex trade, and it is being spent.....here in America, as it is abroad......
Don't you watch Graceland?  LOL.

You might find this interesting... it's a bit long though.

I have a 'hero complex' that I constantly have to suppress.  It's superficially tempting to rescue some poor woman by purchasing her freedom.  Reason then comes in... it's too big a problem for little old me.   It's a lot more complicated than just 'buy her and set her free'.

You are in the UK... how about a report?  Is she full of it or is this a thing?

She goes looking for various fascist groups and finds them.  She finds non-fascists too.  It is about 3 years old.  It is probably best just to look at the last 10 minutes as it works as a summary - I just do not have the time to spend 50+ minutes on it to give a detailed critique.
