Thanks all for the welcome. I love the
I found something about the "concubines in Islam" that you mentioned, and it was pretty much what I was looking for. Thank you
Seems one could certainly tinker with the definition of "slave", i think one could even call a secular marriage a slave contract and that would be that. As far as I'm concerned, from what i read here:
Marriage and slavery wasn't all that different back then. When it comes to actual living conditions anyway.
BDSM, very cool, i never thought of that!!!!
Why I feel I need to know about this stuff? Well that question inparticular was just a bit of fun. Next time I'm trying to seduce a cute, well behaved muslim lad, it should make things easier.
To be honest I'm not entirely sure about this myself, perhaps I think that religion is an unhealthy mindset, i mean no offense, it's just my opinion, and i'm trying to work out what's going on in peeps heads.
When people think differently to me, I always find it interesting, perhaps i'm an arrogant bitch but i just don't understand how anyone can follow any kind of thought process to the end and arrive at the idea there is a GOD. I know it's a big part of our evolution, to think this way, but now when we know so much, and know there is so much we don't know... it makes no sense.
It's not just religious ideas, its others as well, peoples thinking has just always interested me, and while i'm used to christian weirdness, muslim weirdness is totally different even tho both idea's are born of the same pool of rubbish.
What I have never understood about christianity is, even if it was all true, why would anyone be happy about it? And i find that muslims suffer from this even worse, it's like a desperation to give themselves up for some greater power. WHY? even give their children up to it? Even if it was true, and i believed in God, i wouldn't bend my knee towards it.
I don't understand this idea that just because I exist I must now choose to exist only to kiss arse or be tortured?
And also why would another human be pissed off if one chooses not to kiss gods arse? i would have thought its more likely peeps would give god decenters a pat on the back, and "good on ya son" because they happen to have not sold out for an eternity of sex and alcohol in a garden?
And I'm truelly trying to figure out why people want all this... If religion evolved to be simply deistic i wouldn't have a problem, but this desire to be a slave, i don't get it.
Also I think the whole burka thing is facsinating, as i believe it is just a symptom of a problem that many women have in this world, it has just manifested itself in this form for muslim chicks...
Don't get me wrong, I love men, but women really do care far too much about what men think of us... it's either we dress too frumpy or flaunting... whores or fridgid... smart or stupid, respectable, not respectable, I am totally fine with men thinking that way about me because I couldn't care less, this whole thing with needing to be respected by men... feminists are guilty of it too when they moan about women in the sex industry... I want to know why women care if men respect us or not?
Also what is the psychology behind wanting the men and women around us to have certain unchangeable roles? Which is another fact that i think is affecting why muslims are so adament that they are right.
It also interests me why muslims are so against any idea of change, like irshad manji says.
And in all this im interested in the mindset of the muslim that leaves Islam, what has happened to you beautiful few that got you thinking that maybe there is no God.
And I would also love to understand Converts... What is THAT about? why would a person that has figured out their own flawed religion is a crap heap, then convert to another equally flawed concept, even atheists that have converted...
Anyway that is as they say that.
Thanks for answering guys,
and sorry for taking ages to come back, i'm just slow like that!
