Tabloid Islam

Tabloid Islam claims to be egalitarian and liberationist, but in practice holds men and women to different standards. Men are always given 70+ excuses when accused of misdemeanour, while women will feel the full force of communal condemnation for showing a strand of hair under her hijab. A man’s reputation is paramount. A woman’s reputation is immaterial. Attacking a woman and writing her off as a feminist is a considered scholarly. Critiquing a man is considered a heinous sleight. Sadly Tabloid Islam seems to be in the ascendency.
