Do you not realize that there are Muslims who do not beat their wives?
Not bigoted at all, in fact one of the things that I despise greatly is the events of 911, because with all the media and focus on radical Islam and terrorism, we now look at Muslims in a different way whether we like it or not... almost suspicious like, this I do not like (perhaps a brainwash on a certain level?). It has not changed however, we continue to do this today with what is happening around the world with ISIS, Boku Haran, etc... it paints a picture.
What's worse, there does not seem to be any conversations, outcry or condemnation of those who commit such horrendous acts by those of that faith in the media, even though it is asked for. So what does that leave one to believe?
No, I do not believe the story I posted is representative of all Muslim people. What I do understand of Islam however is it is not favorable to women as they are very often discriminated against on many levels... not all obviously but it is a stereotype... and we love our stereotypes.
To answer your question, yes I know there are Muslim men that do not beat their wives.
Different cultures meshing with different cultures brings problems, it is just how it is. This is not only on the family level but often time on the community level, and governmental levels as well. Just my opinion.
