Considering how much Muslims hate women, this hardly comes as a surprise...

Sad to say this is unsurprising and sounds to me typical of fervent "moderate" "British" Muslims. They have no respect for the normal conventions of human society. The culprits may be home-grown, not foreign.

Here's a simple and reasonable solution to the problem:

Those who WANT segregation are the ones who get segregated. And they DON'T get to speak - not just at the debate, but in society as a whole.

If their views are that stupid, then they're not worth hearing. And if they "think" certain people need to be treated as less than themselves, then they don't deserve equal treatment either.

Show them what real segregation is. Load all the sobs on a boat and drop them off in the Persian Gulf.
