Richard Dawkins. Ugh.

People may assume that my dislike of Richard Dawkins is because he’s an atheist and I’m a Muslim.

But I couldn’t care less that he’s an atheist.  My issues with Richard Dawkins are with his disgusting sexism.

Some recent comments he made about sexism in the atheist movement really got under atheist feminists’ skin. But also mine. And so I wrote out my thoughts at Muslimah Media Watch:

Dawkins is injecting Muslim women “over there” into an issue that concerns us as well (sexual harassment and sexism in belief systems), but uses us to derail this issue.

I included some great links to what other feminists are saying about the issue, too. Ms. Magazine is reading it! So should you.
