‘A course being offered in a Saudi academic institution titled Is a Woman a Human Being? provoked an angry response on social media, both in Saudi Arabia and abroad.
The course, which was to begin Monday in the Saudi Academy for Training and Consulting, was ultimately cancelled due to the criticism. In response, a special hashtag was launched #thewomanisahumanbeing.
In announcing the course’s cancellation, the academy published a clarification saying it would not allow any denigration of Muslim women. (Infidel whores, presumably, were never human to begin with – Ed.) However, the academy also said the cancellation of the course had nothing to do with the course’s content, which remained under wraps. It also said it was surprised by the intense reaction, saying previous courses that used the same title didn’t garner any reaction.’
(By the way, the sort of Muslims who try to do apologetics and dawah on Twitter and in comments sections seem to all be reading fro the same sheet of talking points. You can explain things a hundred times, but they’re like zombies: they can’t take in new information. They love the story that the Catholic Church once debated the question of whether women have souls. (This proves that Islam invented women’s rights, you see.) That story is not accurate.)
