The human body exists naturally through evolution. Religion exists because of delusion and ignorance.

It is *not* "islamophobia" to accept and be proud of the human body as natural. On the contrary, it is religion - including islam - which has gymnophobia (the fear of nudity), which is a perfectly natural state of being. Humans were born naked.

When I see a naked body, I don't become sexually aroused or inclined to sexually assault people because I have a healthy mental attitude towards the human body. But the religitards (including muslims) act like prudes and freak out about nudity because they are mentally unstable from believing in idiotic fictions.

Yes-- and more to the point?

Even if a woman walks naked down the street?

SHE IS STILL NOT ASKING FOR IT.

I don't think the breasts fear islam. I think islam fears the breasts. So, the thread title should be something like "is islam breastophobic".

This isn't really just being facetious. Islam, and indeed all three abrahaimic religions are permeated by a deep fear of female sexuality. From the jewish obsession with women being 'unclean' to islamic insistence that women be wrapped in tarps and always under the control of a male relative to Paul's writings about women being silent in church, all three religions seem to fear the power of women, and the fear seems rooted in their sexuality and their reproductive capability. Mohammed, jesus and moses seem like the charter members of the Little Rascal's "he-man woman-haters club.'

Before the monotheistic religions came on the scene, the human body and sexuality were considered sacred.

With the control and suppression of this wonderful and powerful sexual energy by the priests of this new god we entered the dark ages with it's frustration, it's rage, and it's burnings.

Sadly, a good portion of humanity is still there in the dark ages cursing the joy of the young people dancing in the streets.

BUT ! While most fundies are cursing the new found freedom of the young, Islam is throwing rocks.

This is reality, not a phobia. A phobia is a form of madness, like being afraid of something as beautiful and awe inspiring as a woman's breasts!

Why? Femen are not illegal immigrants.

You can think islam is total pile of horseshit without being islamophobic.

Well... religion has never had a problem publically displaying their stupidity.... it seems they just have a problem with others publically calling it what it is. You know... because then they have to defend their practices and always end up making themselves look even more stupid

Yeah, heaven forbid (literally) that anyone should try to bring muslims out of the 15th century. They are obviously not ready to deal with women as if they were actual people. Because if muslim men were forced to give up their privilege and deal with women on an equal footing, most of them would not measure up. The foundation of islam is a deep fear of female sexuality, which no doubt arises out of serious feelings of inadequacy.
