Two Iraqi Demos – Lovely Lasses V Horrid Hags!

Anyone else see those rival demos in Baghdad?

I’m still watching France24, despite the earlier stuff they served up today…

…although actually, I’m only glancing at the tv, as I have chores to do, esp. tidying my home for my guest later, after part of the decorative cornice on the ceiling fell down yesterday!

Anyway, the reporter was showing us two demos from the Iraqi capital, one with lots of normal women, many unscarved, even those with a scarf sporting bright colours, definitely female, feminine.

Drabs in demo mode!


The other one was a gathering of drabs in black, directed NOT to demonstrate with men by a fanatic imam.

They rather resembled a seething mass of witches.

How sad, to see them, flaunting their subservience to shariah sexism.

What motivates them to exult in segregation?

Intimidation? Indoctrination?
