Re: Trying to Disagree (Michelle Goldberg & Dana Goldstein)
I enjoyed watching Michelle Goldberg squirm and sputter when discussing the burqa but ultimately took it as a good sign; unlike most feminists, she has actual principles and just can't bring herself defend the indefensible. Which is what happens when you buy into multi-culturalism: you're made to feel embarrassed for noticing some things truly are evil. And regarding other religions in France and their treatment of women: as long as there is no coercion, and non-believers aren't forced to participate, who cares? The problem in France is that non-believers ARE being affected and there IS coercion of Islamic women not to mention the all-too-frequent murder. The French situation is one where the "slippery slope" theory that conservatives are always yammering about has a good chance of becoming fact.
