Harvard: Top Dhimmi Institution

Abbie Ruzicka:

Harvard University has moved to make Muslim women more comfortable in the gym by instituting women-only access times six hours a week to accommodate religious customs that make it difficult for some students to work out in the presence of men.

Some explanation:

Harvard Islamic Society's Islamic Knowledge Committee officer Ola Aljawhary, a junior, said the women-only hours are being tested on a trial basis. The special gym hours will be analyzed over Spring Break to determine if they will continue, she said.

Aljawhary said that she does not believe that the women-only gym hours discriminate against men.

[Emphasis mine.]

Harvard is admitting spectacularly dense students nowadays.

There are lots of comments at the end -- none, as far as I can see, support this intolerant, backwards policy.

For example, Paco writes:

Good progressive move, Harvard. Leading the way back to those good old days of "separate but equal" public facilities.

Why stop with re-segregating the gym? Go all out and emulate everything they do in the apartheid Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I read they arrested a woman because she illegally "mixed" with men other than her relatives at a Starbucks in Riyadh. So let's have special hours for women to go to Starbucks by themselves in Boston.

Whatever it takes to make Muslims feel comfortable. That's all that matters.



Not discrimination? Hmmm. Surely this is testable - Harvard should announce that it is reserving daytime hours for its male students. Its female students would still be able to attend classes at night, so it wouldn't rise to the level of discrimination. I'm sure students and alumni would agree, and there would be neither an uproar in the press nor a dropoff in donations.


Ironically, if someone suggested that there should be racial segregation, in order to make sure that non-whites are comfortable by the lack of whites being present, it'd probably cause an uproar.
