Her name is Aliaa Magda Elmahdy and apparently she’s an Egyptian social activist and blogger who’s known for doing outrageous things to protest Islamic restrictive and misogynistic theology. However, up to this point, her “protests” have not run the risk of her being publicly beheaded by the most dangerous terror group in the world.
Here’s what she did.
“In the image, the 23-year-old feminist is seen facing the camera, while the other woman, dressed in a black hijab, has her back towards the viewer. Two presumably plastic machine guns are in the background, and the veiled woman is holding up her middle finger. The letters IS are inscribed on Elmahdy’s stomach and on the second woman’s bottom.”
And below, the gratuitous “Pooping on ISIS” photo.
Arab media across the Middle East have avoided publishing Aliaa’s very creative protest photo, since the words “there is no God but Allah” are printed on the “desecrated” IS flag. Her actions have caused a lot of outrage in the region. But really, when isn’t that region outraged?
And whilst I am of the mindset that many fundamentalist Islamic men like to cover their women with as many layers as possible to minimize their very existence, this kind of protest on that issue may not be the best tactic right now with ISIS rising. Personally, I vote we skip the protesting and just kill ISIS – every last one of them and their favorite goat – no questions, no discussion.
