A Mad World, My Mistresses

Following the post below on Maryam Namazie’s encounter with the cry-bullies at Goldsmith.

It’s not hard to guess whose side the Goldsmith Feminist Society was on.

On one side, a solitary female, feminist, Iranian, fighter for human rights, atheist.

On the other side, a bunch of aggressive males from a patriarchal religion who did their best to intimidate the solitary female.

No need to ask. Of course the Goldsmith Feminist Society took the side of the males.

Y’know, women have an instinctive protectiveness towards other women menaced by men – women who may not even have heard of the concept of feminism (as illustrated in this story A Jury of her Peers). There is such a thing as natural female solidarity which finds comfort in a hospital ward together and which will shelter an abused woman.

What the hell has happened that a body that calls itself the Feminist Society leaps to the defence of the misogynists? .

For a little of what is deemed to be acceptable discourse in ISOC’s own safe space have a look at what stirs Muhammed Patel’s juices. (He’s the President of Goldsmiths Islamic society (ISOC)). He describes an event as “amazing” where the speakers “have made statements advocating the execution of ex-Muslims and blasphemers, advised Muslims to boycott women who marry outside of Islam, said that non-Muslim women will be taken as slaves in the future (of course it is permissible to have sex with these women),  creepily remarked that six and seven year old girls are ‘pretty’ and ‘desired’, warned of the dangers when leaving Muslim children with non-Muslims, insisted that women should remain in the house and not venture outside unless it’s a necessity, advocated punishments for Muslims who do not pray, and said that homosexuals are worse than animals. “ (From a post by Harry Matz).

Under the linked post you can find a stream of foully abusive comments, of a gross sexual nature, which is typical of Islamists who love filthy invective.

So mad has feminism become even if the thugs had sexually assaulted Namazie they no doubt would have found excuses for them.


Unbelievable shit from Goldsmith LBGT as well.

Following recent events on- and offline, we would like to state and show our solidarity with the sisters and brothers of our Goldsmiths ISOC

We condemn AHS and online supporters for their islamophobic remarks and attitudes. If they feel intimidated, we urge them to look at the underpinnings of their ideology. We find that personal and social harm enacted in the name of ‘free speech’ is foul, and detrimental to the wellbeing of students and staff on campus.

In our experiences, members of ISOC have been nothing but charming, patient, kind, and peaceful as individuals and as an organization.

We hope this series of events prompts reflection in all parties involved, but also onlookers. Allyship consists of apologies, bearing with and deconstructing discomfort, respecting the necessary privacy of safer spaces, and opening our hearts to humans unlike ourselves.

We can all stand to improve in this area- which ideally is a daily, humbling practice and not a label.

For all I know Goldsmith Feminist Society and LBGT Society contain about 8 members a piece. But Jeez, their support for an ideology which in its ideal society would keep the women segregated and second-class and execute the gays is absolutely barmy, even for student activists.

    Well we do have a mad world where pretend socialists accept that women can walk around wearing black bin
    bags in the interest of freedom.

  2. Steven Johnston said,

    Reading this I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, oh well just another reason (part 97) why socialists should hate feminism. A veritable storm in a tea cup but a highly amusing one! One for the “beyond parody” file!

    Has anyone from Goldsmiths SU sent out an “ironic” #KillAllApostates Tweet, yet?

    • John R said,

      Sorry, on second thoughts, it should of course be #KillAllApostateFeministIranians.

  4. Steven Johnston said,

    I’d like to say to the rank & file in the Goldsmiths feminist society, the whole 8 of them, break ranks and condemn the leadership of your society and admit that they have made a mistake here.

  5. Steven Johston said,

    As for the last sentence of this post…lets us hope it never comes to that, but if it ever does I agree that they would probably say something along the lines of “she was asking for it/deserved it”. I always did think there was something inherently reactionary/conservative about feminism and this just proves it.

    Why don’t the Soggy Oggies organise a meeting for the woman speaker.

    • Glasgow Working Class said,

      Pt, I can imagine that you are the West of Scotland old Labout type that think women should be at the sink in between hivvin weans while you are at the pub. Then givin her a good slap if yer dinner is not on the table.

    • Jim Denham said,

      We have done, on several occasions. Your point being?

  7. Political Tourist said,

    I might be old Labour but thankfully i ain’t right wing Ukip brother.

    • Steven Johnston said,

      You mean there is a difference? Old labour didn’t like Europe either.

    • Glasgow Working Class said,

      You must have been a Coatbrig Knight then. And what have you got against Dan Jarvis.

  8. John R said,

    I see on Howie’s Corner that Goldsmith’s SU has demanded that the video showing the Islamists disrupting the meeting should be removed for some spurious reason.

    What’s going on?

    I guess the sheer impotence of the Left has created a collective mental breakdown.
