‘Big Bang Theory’ actress Mayim Bialik has come out swinging at feminists who ignore the suffering endured by women in Muslim-majority countries.

Bialik makes her criticisms via a blog post on her website GrokNation. 

She begins by responding to well-known Palestinian feminist Linda Sarsour’s recent declaration that feminism and Zionism cannot possibly intersect.

Bialik is an actress and neuroscientist. She plays Amy Farrah Fowler (seen above) on CBS’ Big Bang Theory.

Bialik – an Orthodox Jew – writes:

Zionism is the belief in the right of the Jewish people to have an autonomous state in Israel. I am a Zionist. Feminism is the belief that a woman-driven movement can bring about race, class and gender equality and that women deserve all of the rights and privileges afforded to men. I am a feminist.

The definitions of Zionism and feminism are not in conflict with each other. At all.

She goes on to admit that yes, there are things that happen in Israel and Palestine that “cause pain and suffering to women.”

Then, Bialik sets her sights on individuals who choose to focus on that suffering while ignoring similar values in other countries.

She writes:

The question is this: Many countries – many Muslim countries, in fact – perpetuate atrocities against women which include: female genital mutilation, forced marrigaes, child briges, systematic abuse of women by the justice system, revenge rape and honor killing.

Why is Israel held to a standard none of these other countries – whose offenses are, arguably more extreme – are held to?

Bialik goes on to accuse those who use atrocities against women in Israel as proof of Zionism and feminism’s incompatibility of painting “with such a broad brush.”

That, she argues, is bigotry.

Word of Bialik’s article spread quickly online, prompting praise from numerous social media users.

Breitbart’s article on the topic amassed hundreds of comments within minutes of being posted.

        Ummm, that was whom wrote this article, not her. How could you seriously not know how this works?

  • Lilith

    Ok great but didn’t she go on a ridiculous anti Trump rant on video? I’m pretty sure I remember that..

    • Rusty Shackleford

      You can still be anti-Islam and be against the God-Emperor Trump (peace be upon him)

      • rhadagastt

        Very true Rusty, but I don’t even think you would have to call her anti-Islam. She’s more just pointing out the hypocrisy between how the Left treats the Islamic world versus Israel. I would say she’s merely anti-double standard.

        • rushthezeppelin

          That’s certainly a good start though. I’m putting this as pretty remote, but maybe just maybe if feminism did actually start focusing largely on Islam they can wreak the same cultural havoc on the middle east and Islamic Africa that they have done on western civilization completely destroying the religion. At the least maybe it would spur some kind of fucking reformation that would hopefully include admitting the modern science about not fucking your cousin and they could start to slowly grow their average IQ ><

      • Andrew J

        While one can be oppose Islam and also oppose Trump, one certainly cannot not fully be in their right mind and do both.

        • Joe Schmoe

          Trump is a jerk but yes he is right about Islam. 99% of the idiots didn’t even realize the havoc those koranimals were causing in Sweden until Trump brought it up

          • Mr Beaujangles

            Trump is God King. Bow now, dog.

          • Joe Schmoe

            arf arf

            The correct response. Good dog. Now lick my balls.

    • Mike

      Er…isn’t this pretty simple?

      Israel treats its neighbours of a different faith like sub humans.

      Jews in other countries disagree with this apartheid take 2. Although there are huge organisations which disproportionately represent a very pro-israel stance (whatever that means – pro israel is surely to move on from apartheid).

      The government of for example Saudi Arabia treats its people, and people of a different faith, with contempt also (to say the least)

      Muslims in other countries would never condone these policies masquerading as religiously justified ideals.

      I don’t see her point here, other than she has it twisted. Why is it difficult to imagine that there are several different points of view, all of which are biased, but only some of which cause untold deaths and suffering?

  • Justin Leeds

    I bet Pedo-wood just blacklisted her for speaking ill of the do no wrong Muslims. Makes me glad I illegally download all TV shows or movies that I want to watch.

  • Soleil

    Modern “Feminism” is being subverted by the Islamic Supremacists like Linda Sarsour (a member of Hamas) and their sympathizers and is subtly conditioning women to be dumb and defenseless.

  • Bill Rowland

    It is only very recently where everyone ignores the elephant in the room. Islam is Terror..Islam is genocide, rape, human rights abuses, murder, mayhem and tyranny.

    • H2S Jaeger

      That’s been said about every religion to have held power.

      • Bill Rowland

        We are talking about right now.

        • H2S Jaeger

          I’m talking about the elephant in the room isn’t Islam. It’s religion. Not the fact that people believe in god[s], but that there are organizations that have the power over the weak minded to believe and do whatever they want without question because they are the belief system.

          It happened before. It’s happening again.

          • Bill Rowland

            Most other religions have settled down and renounced violence. Namely in the last few hundred years. Islam has NEVER de-radicalized and its basic tenets preach murder, child rape and killing of non believers and people follow those teaching to this day. The crusades and the Spanish inquisitions were 1000 and 400 years ago respectively. Communism on the other hand has killed 200 million in the last century and they are staunchly atheist.

          • H2S Jaeger

            Communism is just a Theocracy where they replaced God with Dictator. There’s no difference in structure. Communism is, predominantly, the same as a religion.

          • Bill Rowland

            There we agree completely. I’m not religious, I am just an observer. I rally against any evil no matter what they call themselves. Right now the pendulum is swinging to mohammed’s gang…and that is what I’m worried about right now.

          • disqus_f38FHrSWkl

            If communism is the same as religion then, by your standards, any ideology that believes in its own merits and seeks to have a function in the world qualifies as religion. Reductionist strawman bullshit.

          • H2S Jaeger

            You completely figured out my definition of religion from 24 words? Do tell.

            lol.

            Negative. I don’t think every ideology that wants to impact the world is a religion. I only said Communism, because of its very similar structure to a Theocracy. Yes, I might be simplifying the two, however I believe there is merit in my synopsis. If you think I made a glaring mistake in my argument, then please say so instead of just the idiot way of arguing with “hurp durp multisyllable word followed by buzzword then expletive derp herp”

          • Luckylucylou

            By your definition, feminism, climate change, liberalism, and any number of other things that cause a radical fervor, & seek to force non-believers to accept the concepts of their beliefs at all costs, would function as a religion. I don’t think I can argue with that. And, yes, I agree that the radical fervor is the most telling factor, that fervent belief that in the rightness of the cause & that no matter what the means, it justifies the end. Thank God, my religion has progressed past that fervency standpoint into a placid mediocrity.

          • H2S Jaeger

            It’s “the end justifies the means” not the other way around.

            Some groups of people have turned modern feminism into their own religion, given their strict guidelines of practice and life style, forceful nature, inability to reason with any other thought process outside their own, and – as you put it – radical fervor. I haven’t seen that for climate change or deniers personally (which I’m quite curious as to why you added that one in particular, given that it’s people debating facts, not beliefs, and isn’t an ideology), but liberalism, or just political views in general, is a *special* case, given the fact that politics are a core function within all governments, organizations, and religions (sometimes the very principle difference between certain faiths).

            As I said, I don’t think every ideology that wants to impact the world is a religion. But, as you’ve stated, there are those that will make any of them into one.

            So am I wrong that Communism is just a Theocracy where they replaced God with Dictator? Still waiting on someone to prove me wrong, given that a few of you think my 24 words equates my entire definition of what a religion is.

          • Luckylucylou

            I don’t know enough about communist dictators & people’s thoughts & feelings about them to put up a semi-valid argument. I’ve never lived in a communist country. I’ve never visited a communist country. I don’t think I have even met anyone who lived in a communist country, though I would have to give that serious thought. Therefore, my only thoughts on it would be to ask would it be a theocracy or would it be a system based on fear & rather than voluntary compliance with a set of moral values it would be forced military compliance with a changing set of values.

    Yet more proof of the Milo Theorem: Feminist-Dykes overrule everything and everyone. They kill women, gays and jews, we’ll look the other way.

    All deplorables knew this and have been questioning this while hilliary worshipped her muslims. I guess a liberal finally got a clue- maybe other liberal halfwits will get a clue too.

    Bright lady. She needs to spell check.

    “Feminism is the belief
    that a woman-driven movement can bring about race, class and gender
    equality and that women deserve all of the rights and privileges
    afforded to men. I am a feminist.”

    OH YEAH, BUT WHAT ABOUT RESPONSIBILITIES? Ah no, those are men things, just give me the privileges… Another cunt.

    • Jim

      I also noticed the omission of responsibilities here. But what she said is actually quite accurate and telling – because that is what feminism is; wanting all of the rights and privileges, not necessarily the responsibilities. So, kudos to her for calling it like it is.

      • keepitreal904

        What rights and privileges do women in America not have? I’d argue they have more rights and privileges than men in many more respects than vice versa. If a man and a woman agree to have a child together and the relationship goes sour 6 months into the pregnancy, the woman can go and terminate that pregnancy without any regard for the man’s feelings and rights. He would have as much a right imo to that decision as anyone as that is his child too in her womb. It’s not only her’s because it’s in her body.

        • Luckylucylou

          I agree. Father’s rights are something that need to be addressed. It is unfair, it is wrong, it is immoral that fathers don’t have the same rights as mothers.

    • H2S Jaeger

      Traditional feminism doesn’t state anything about responsibilities because it’s common sense that those come with the rights and privileges that they fought for, just as it’s your right to own a gun *but* it’s common sense to act accordingly and responsibly with it. Calling out that she doesn’t mention responsibilities has no point. She may have added race and class to the definition, but she seems to be taking the stance of a traditional feminist and not the absurd and ignorant modern “equivalent” SJWs.

    • keepitreal904

      Feminists want equality until it’s time to do hard, dangerous work (Generally speaking). Most work related deaths are men. Men do most of the hard, dangerous work needed to keep the country running. Men and women of course should have equal rights, but men and women are not equal. Men are superior in some things and women are superior in some things. We should embrace our strengths, not try to group everyone together in some mediocre average.

      • arena

        Every time i hear about the “Day without women” i laugh…

        Men produce most of the energy of this world, produce most food, build every building, invent 95% of every new thing, defend their cities and countries, and so on… Producers.

        On the other hand, women are teachers, nurses, office ladies, catering and other social works. Consumers.

        Still don’t get how they can’t see the stupidity of their words… If all women stopped working in a couple of weeks everything would be ok, if all men stopped working society would be OVER. Still we should treat them like goddesses… No logic.

        The world as we know it won’t last long, is just a matter of time, too much stupidity around and too many people wanting to be treated in a special way they don’t deserve.

  • DaisyToo

    Muslims consider themselves slaves to their very unpredictable slave-master, Allah. And no, I’m not exaggerating to make a point. A big discussion amongst Muslims interested in reforming Islam is whether to change the word ‘slave’ to ‘servant’ because infidels (naturally) have given ‘slavery’ a bad name.

  • colonel

    This is simply not true “atrocities against women in Israel”. I know of none at a rate higher then any western country. Mayim should know better then to make these kind of comments. They will not illicit any sympathy from the other side

  • Joicoh

    Thing is, a country doesn’t need to be a majority Muslim one to see Islam related violence and abuse on women, children, and even men. Look at the UK, at the towns of Rotherham, Telford, Derby etc, with their Islamic trafficking of mostly English working class women and children (and the shocking, disgraceful cover up by the authorities), now look at what’s happening to mainland Europe too and we see a clear picture emerge. It’s about time “liberals” and the Femistasi actually wake the eff up and join reality because their insane anti-Western policies, especially their war on white men and their screeching about open borders, are killing us.

  • Amaryllis

    “whose offenses are ARGUABLY more extreme?”

    How is it arguable?

    Honestly, she doesn’t sound all that much better than most hollywood leftists. But maybe I’m underestimating how hard it is to have *any* dissenting opinion in hollywood.

  • Martelson

    Someone is going to feminist re-education camp…

  • SilentProlix

    It has always perplexed me regarding liberals, be they feminists, environmentalist, or any other category of liberal…seem to ignore, even disregard what radical Islam is, because it goes beyond just women, all the liberal “tolerance” topics are loathed by Islam and not just by a placard carrying protest, but beheadings, mutilations, and other unspeakable things. Freedoms touted by liberals are often suppressed or worse, I just do not get it are they that blind, naïve or just cruel and hard hearted? Someone explain this paradox to me…

    “Zionism is the belief in the right of the Jewish people to have an autonomous state in Israel.”

    What is the belief in the right of the White people to have an autonomous state?

  • James Mist

    You can tell exactly what she thinks, and it says so much that she’s so restrained and careful in her choice of words. “[Muslim countries] whose offenses are arguably more extreme [than Israel’s]. Arguably? ????

    Tim Allen is not joking, you will get beat up, harassed, and fired if you say things like this with any frequency in Hollywood.

    • DaveHolden

      She is safe saying “Zionism is the belief in the right of the Jewish people to have an autonomous state in Israel. I am a Zionist.”

      Would a White actor be safe saying “White Nationalism is the belief in the right of the White people to have an autonomous state. I am a White Nationalist.”

      I don’t think Muslims are the problem.

  • LuzariusLive

    I’m Iranian American. After the revolution Islam took over and destroyed Iran. Women get treated horribly over there. We can’t let Islam gain any type of foothold in America. One of the reasons I left the Democratic party was because of their naive & foolish sympathy towards Islam. I look forward to voting for Trump in 2020.

    Fellow Trumpers, please don’t think all Iranians are supporters of Islam. There’s a huge sect of Iranians who REJECT Islam and everyday more and more of us are speaking up. We stand with you. Iranians like us are driving American muscle cars over in Iran secretly hoping for the end of Islamic tyranny. A lot of Iranians want western culture & thinking in Iran.

    In conclusion, I’ll finish off with a controversial thing to say, but I’m Iranian so I feel I can say it, but I would prefer an actual Muslim ban in America.

  • dsoberg

    I ache when I see women defend themselves against islam and screwed by western women for issuing such self defense. (I don’t bother to capitalize islam anymore, sorry)

    As a Liberal, my message to Hollywood women is: start showing some (non-trans) balls and defend all women, left & right, pro & anti- islam.

    Virginia Woolf would have drowned herself yet again had she seen the feckless limousine liberals defending islam du jour. (your neighbourhood feminist- David )
