Goose and Gander?

In a sermon during Ramadan Sheikh Taj Aldin al-Hilali, Australia's most prominent Muslim cleric, said that women invite rape by not covering themselves head to toe:

"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside ... and the cats come to eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's?"

"The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred" …

Australia's Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward said al-Hilali's comments encouraged rape and that Muslims should force him to quit.

Hmm, then I suppose that straight men need to cover up themselves since their exposed meat would incite homosexual males to rape them, too. At least cover up the boys and put an end to pedophilia.

The message is that women do not belong in the public sphere.
