DavidMGold
Aiham

The primary issue being debated is whether the 1,001 Muslim Inventions is a fraudulent exhibit that is historically false and falsely conflates medieval science with modern science. At issue are inventions or discoveries existing long before Islam.

Girl's Public School Dress Code

leoghakj

I believe that when you interrupt a girl's school day to force her to change clothes or to send her home because her shorts are short, and her bra straps are visible, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education.

You are telling her that boys are more entitled to an education than she is....
