Victim-blaming street cleric wants laws to cover women up

Fresh off the heels of SlutWalk comes some top notch slut shaming nonsense in Toronto.

Al-Haashim Kamena Atangana, a 33-year-old converted Muslim street cleric is calling for Toronto to make it illegal for women to dress “provocatively” by enforcing a dress code and taking note “from the way Muslim women dress”. "The reason ... these sex attacks are continuously happening is because (of) Canadian laws, which give too much freedom to women" Atangana said in an email to the Toronto Sun.

Moderate Muslim writer Tarek Fatah has pointed to the ongoing problem of sexual assault in Egypt, where 70% of sexual harassment victims surveyed wore veils of some kind, to disprove the idea that sexual assault is a result of the way women dress.
