Virginity Test: Islam’s “Western” Scarlet Letter

Maybe Monique Buckner, a South African in England, should reconsider her conversion to Islam. If the disturbing story about her treatment by the man who converted her–her boss at a Muslim school–is any indication, sometimes Islamic piety is a sham. And women continue to be big airheads when it comes to instantly joining it without a second thought.
According to the Oxford Mail, Buckner’s boss at the Iqra School in Oxford, England, Hojjat Ramzy, convinced Buckner to convert to Islam when she passed by his Islamic proselytizing stand on an Oxford street. He then agreed to hire her to teach English at the Islamic school, so that she would not be deported back to South Africa.
But when Buckner, 33, began working at the school Ramzy, a married father of five, asked her whether or not she was a virgin and said if he were younger, he would marry her, too.

Monique Buckner: Islam’s Virginity Test Leads to Convert’s Job Loss

“This disgusted me as I considered Mr Ramzy to be a pious Muslim whom I trusted and respected,” she said.

Not long after, she was fired.
Is this kind of thing headed for America? Nope. It’s already here. And five years ago Monday, it was empowered and strengthened on the heap of almost 3,000 Americans’ bodies.

Maybe she should of done a little research before she decided to change religions. Where did she get the idea that Islamic men are pious?

Scummy Muslims….
What a surprise!
For me, the tough part is wrapping my arms around the notion that a woman would convert to Islam–sort of like going to Africa in the 18th century and asking a young man if he would like to come to the Colonies as a slave–willingly.

So…um…er… would you pass the virginity test?

She was stupid to convert to i-SLAM, and is more stupid to continue in that pedophile sex-obsessed cult even after all this has happened. May allah revirginize her so she passes the virginity test. She deserves to be a part of that barbaric cult aka religion of piss.
corkscrewy: In India, Mozlum girls are checked for their virginities by old half-blind retarded Mozlum women who literally search for an “intact” hymen. If they fail to locate the hymen or it is torn for whatever reason, that girl is history.

I understand the practice. I think one of the issues here is to try and begin to understand the cultural, societal, and historical contexts within which this practice has been created. Armed with that information, one can then begin to approach the issue with some sort of understanding and information. Otherwise, we are merely practicing our form of judgement and ethnocentricity.
That all said. We criticize cultures that tell their girls they must be virgins, yet we demonize girls in our culture who have sex too young. And, we want to ban forms of abortion for those who want that option. If any government can dictate what a person can do with their body, they are wrong. If religious groups act similarly, they too are wrong. Has anyone asked their local reverend/preacher/politician about a woman’s right to choose lately.
And, for all you religious types out there. “let he who is without sin cast the first stone…” Or, “judge not lest ye be judged likewise also”

When was the last time a reverand/preacher/politician asked a woman if she was a virgin that was not a perv? Is it preferable for a woman to be a virgin? Yes for many more reasons than just to satisfy some creeps fantasy. See here in America religions may want their women and men to be virgins until marriage but we don’t kill non-virgin brides, there are no hymen checks. Just because we don’t want to judge people doesn’t mean we should condone such rude behavior, which in Islam many times leads to rape or violence.

Other questions the honorable Mr. Ramzy was thinking to ask but never got around to it:
1. How many other females in your family are virgins?
2. Can you convince them to convert to Islam?
3. Are there any little boys in your family who might be thinking of conversion?
4. How many times do you masturbate each week?
5. Do you have any “toys”?
6. Do you think of me when you masturbate?
7. Why would my other wives mind me taking you as another wife? You’d be giving some of them a break.
8. Do you mind being beaten on a regular basis?
9. Can you learn to keep your mouth shut until I command you to speak?
10. Do you mind living back in the 7th century?
11. Can you stay at least 3 paces behind me when we walk in public?
12. Do you mind living under Sharia Law and give up just about all of your rights as a human being?
This attitude towards women is what Islam is all about. Women are considered property and they must subjugate themselves to their husbands and to other men to a certain degree. That’s why this BARBARIAN asked what he asked.
Some cult, huh?

“corkscrewy”, just a bunch of bandwagon arguments. Who is this “We” that supposedly criticizes cultures that tell their girls they must be virgins? “We”, except for the radical left, do not criticize any culture for that.
And, many of us don’t “demonize” girls who have sex too young. We do have STANDARDS and MORALS which believe young girls shouldn’t engage in risky behavior.
As for abortion, many of “us” who oppose abortion would have little problem what a woman does with her body. But, some of “us” believe there is an innocent life which factors into the equation, too, so it’s not just a “woman’s body” by itself.
“”let he who is without sin cast the first stone…” Jesus also told her to “go and sin no more”, not just “well, who am I to judge? Go and have fun with your multiple husbands.”
“judge not lest ye be judged likewise also” And, Jesus also said to get the log out of your own eye so you could judge fairly.
“Has anyone asked their local reverend/preacher/politician about a woman’s right to choose lately.”
Er, what’s the point?
“judgement and ethnocentricity”…funny how you have such unnnnnderstandinnnnng for Muslims but very little for others, especially Christians it seems.
“If any government can dictate what a person can do with their body, they are wrong.”
Wait and tell that to the radical Islamics when they take over if silly “let’s not judge” types like you have their way! Better yet, why don’t you take a trip to Iraq or a Muslim country and preach your tolerance message?
This is not a let’s sit around Starbucks and argue politics thing, this is a very serious war against nuts who want to kill you and me and our way of life (which, BTW, allow you to post your silly ramblings without worrying about getting your head chopped off).

So, what are you gonna do, Monique Buckner? Continue to be a property of Muslim men? Leave Islam? Sorry, you signed your life up to this sick cult (didn’t read the fine print, did you?).
Well, live and learn. In the mean time, fix your burkha, your hair is showing….. And oh.. did you read your Qur’an today?
