Liberal Women Just Don't Get It

Radical Feminist Embraces 

Islam - Guess What Happened
 To Her Next

Liberals are quick to attack conservatives for violence and misogyny—
but continue to give Islam a free pass.

Radical left-wing activist, Lacy MacAuley, who leads violent protest group 
“Antifa” in Washington, DC, came to regret that stance—after she 
accompanied her Muslim boyfriend to his homeland of Turkey, where
 “misogyny and patriarchy run deep.”

The Gateway Pundit dug up a ten-month-old archived blog post from 
MacAuley’s website. Called, "My experience of intimate partner violence, 
trapped in Turkey,” MacAuley explains her experience:

"I fell in love with an energetic, charismatic activist I met in November when 
I was present to write about resistance to the G20 Summit, a global event
 in Antalya, Turkey. After I came home to the US, we talked every day. 
He was lovely and charming, I thought at the time. He offered a ready
 smile, engaging kindness, and intelligent conversation. He said all the
 right things to convince me that he cared about women’s rights and 
activism. In February, I decided to return to Turkey with the promise of 
love driving me forward. I couldn’t have known things would turn sour."

She then describes their first fight:
"I had wanted to interview a local woman for an article on Syrian

refugees. He did not approve. He knew the woman and did not like

her, so he strictly forbade me from speaking with her... I just stood in

the middle of the room not knowing what to do. Of course, as a Western

woman, no one had ever forbidden me from speaking with anyone else.

It was a strange feeling: Don’t I have a mouth to speak? Why can I not

use it as I wish?
This is elementary feminism. No man has the power to silence a woman,

just because he is a man."

Things only got worse from there:
"Things deteriorated rapidly,” she wrote. "His insecurity and childishness

got worse. In the following weeks, I was violently pushed, blocked from

leaving freely, and repeatedly told not to speak. If I spoke anyway,

anger erupted… Unwanted sex? Rape? All the time. He did not stop

to determine whether I consented to sex. Several times, he turned off

my wifi and lied about it, a modern-day form of gaslighting. He verbally

criticized me for using social media, my main link to the rest of my

life back in the US, and tried to discourage me from using it."

Through it all, MacAuley couldn’t quite understand how a Muslim man so
 dedicated to liberal causes could be anything less than a feminist:
"I couldn’t have guessed that this man, who said he cared about women’s

rights, who spoke of how many activist friends that he had, who had

participated in many protests in the past, would turn on me, and that

he would become so angry and irrational.”

Though MacAuley doesn’t seem to realize it, she answers her own question
 later in the blog post:
"One-third of men surveyed in Turkey in 2013 stated that it is “occasionally

necessary” to commit acts of violence against women, and 28 percent

stated that violence could be used to 'discipline women.’ I did not want to

believe that I was in this statistic.”

Upon leaving Turkey, MacAuley has continued her work to rally against
 “totalitarianism” and “sexism” in the United States.

But like many liberals, she seems to still be unaware that the fact that 
women, minorities, and just about everyone else, are more free and 
more respected in the United States than most of the world.
