Islamaphobes over there.....anti-feminists over here.

I find it funny that the same conservatives who seem so concerned with how Islam treats women, which means how women exist in societies that are mostly Muslim, are pretty damn unconcerned about how women are treated in the United States. Rush Limbaugh pontificates about Feminazis, Sarah Palin defends traditional gender roles in the form of the absurd "Mama Grizzlie" campaign, and lord knows what Glenn Beck has said on the issue, yet when it comes to the veil and to women in Muslim countries, they're all for equality. Just not abortion rights. Or sex ed. Or contraception. And an Equal Rights Amendment? Too much government interference in our lives, a liberal plot.

Once you get out of the veil, I guess it's time to go back into the kitchen.
