The Paradox of Femen.
Paradox no 1: Femen are distracting from the message because men are not becoming convinced that women are oppressed, they’re just enjoying the topless display.
Paradox no 2: These topless events and the majority of the often air-brushed photos are full of young, beautiful, slender women – narrow ideals are something feminism has long fought against.
Paradox no 3: Many many Muslim women have been insulted in the process of Femen’s attempts to expose **WHAT THEY SEE** as the spiritual enslavement of women.
Paradox no 4: Femen generalise about the institutions they say oppress women and disregard the choice of women to engage in the cultural practices of their religion.
Paradox no 5: Femen bring an atmosphere of ‘man-hate’, especially when one looks at their website and finds a photo-shopped pic of an airbrush, beautiful topless girl holding a man’s testicles in one hand and a sickle in the other. That is not equality that is sexual assault of a very violent nature.
