I have no patience for religious nutjobs who hide their discrimination behind religious doctrine. And a big screw you to Mayor Bloomberg, who could have taken the opportunity to say that treating women as less-than-equal people is wrong, but instead simply said that it was inappropriate on a ‘public’ bus.
The clash is not between religious and women’s rights. The clash is between a modern world where women are treated as full people, and a pre-modern world where women are simply less than men. We’re not going back, people.
