It is the FEMEN symbol and is supposed to represent naked breasts.


So obviously I am all for it.

Oh. OK.

Thanks for the answer. I wouldn't have guessed to search for Symbolism meaning of FEMEN.

FINALLY!

It's about time someone used that flag for something worth while! Keeping all that mess off the floor is the best thing anyone has ever done with that particular banner.

Wow, another miss, is there another meaning other than naked breasts
which I can tell a lot of the early posters focused on


Oh, my have to add this if I can to the symbolism, thanks

I went to the FEMEN website and copied this directly:
FEMEN’s logotype is Ф, a Cyrillic letter, the shape of which is similar to women’s breasts that are the key symbol of the women’s movement FEMEN.
FEMEN’s slogal: My Body Is My Weapon!

too late, I timed out, maybe I should repeat the entire post with this addition.

Any other things I missed anyone noticed!

Great catch

Overall... All these "ladies" have done is take a # on a flag which represents the Shahada...
The first pillar of Islam...

They get no respect from me as a Muslim...

Reprobates are no better than Bible/Quran burners...


For all it's imperialism... If this was an American/Israeli flag and an Afghan/Palestinian most of you supporting this would be up in arms about this...

Glad to see the hypocrisy though... It helps show the character of some!

A repost of the entire meaning of the picture with things I missed added on:

What this member thinks:

It was courageous

it was not trashy because it was a very symbolic picture, and obviously a great deal of thought went into it.

#1. A naked Muslim woman - offensive as to be worthy of summary execution under Shariah law, symbolically baring all for the sake of trying to awaken the world and awaken ISIS to the evil they have committed

#2. Menstruation - seen as unclean and defiling what it touches under Shariah, so they defiled the flag in one of the worst ways possible under Shariah - symbolically showing the split blood of innocents

#3. Bowel movement - literally #ting on the flag of ISIS, an insult everyone can understand, - symbolically saying that the actions of ISIS are #ting on the honor of Allah, Muhammad and Islam in general

#4. The finger - a symbol of unpleasant intercourse, - symbolically showing the rape of innocents done by ISIS

#5. The veiled woman - the purer of the two women as she had a veil on - symbolic of the feeling of the pure women that ISIS is raping and #ting on the true faith

#6. The assault weapons can be symbolic of several things:
taking the fight for the honor of Islam in the only way Islamic women can since they can not take up arms
or saying ISIS should lay down their weapons for the honor of Allah

#7. The o/o symbol - a feminist organization FEMEN’s logotype is Ф, a Cyrillic letter, the shape of which is similar to women’s breasts that are the key symbol of the women’s movement FEMEN. FEMEN’s slogan: My Body Is My Weapon!

FYI: I just went and read up on the woman whose face is toward the camera. She is a feminist activist, fighting for equal rights of women in Islamic society.

She has made many symbolic pictures, which are her way of expressing her opinion through photography,

So, my assumptions are correct, that this is a carefully crafted photo, done by someone who is very careful about symbolism and is aware of symbolism. She crafted a photo that captured so much thought and yet at the same time, shocked people and enraged people, just as she intended so it would go viral.

Go girl!


So brave, and sadly most likely so dead once Imams issue their fatwa's, which are bound to come. I hope it is not true with all my heart. But, she is an adult and quite aware of all the symbolism and she is using her body as a weapon, and knows the consequences of using a weapon.

I object to women degrading themselves to make a point. I understand the intent of the picture, but it must have cost them some self-respect. Aren't women degraded enough in modern society and especially in Islamic society?

They are not in the porn industry, they are artists, trying to make an artistic point.

Just as artists in the past have poured urine on pictures/statues of Christ to make a point.

Just like the performance artists who are government supported with grants that are naked when they make their artistic statements.

It is different than porn, the intelligentsia, hollywood, and the federal government of the USA call it art, regardless of what your or my personal opinion is of it.

Ahh, yes. Condemning deplorable action with deplorable action.

If anything, this is disgraceful to women that conduct themselves in a decent manner.

Yes, we wouldn't want them to make that decision themselves.

You(personally) object(the word means oppose when used as a verb) to women degrading themselves to make a point.

You oppose women degrading themselves to make a point.

How am I twisting your words?

Anyway, it isn't degrading when they do it willingly to make an important statement... in my opinion. From what I am seeing posted here, I am not alone in that opinion.

Oh this is just gross. I noped the hell away from any links, I'm not interested in viewing this one. Sorry girls, not interested in your idea of "protesting"


Despite the disgusting knuckle-dragging antics of these women, the pages and pages of puns are what made this thread worth reading through to the end. I laughed a bunch

If only they had wiped a pig's ass with it after they had finished. A blown opportunity that.

You must view the photo to have an opinion or you can't comment on said photo.

Sorry.

And I really don't see what this is accomplishing.

Awareness, pure and simple.

Public outrage, public decrying, public scorn, public ridicule
