What's indecent?

I'm fond of pointing it out when Islam is revealed as the sexist, oppressive force that it is, but don't get the idea that I'm singling Islam out.

Here, for example, are two photographs published this week in Israel.

They look very similar, don't they?

See if you can play "Junior Detective" and find the differences.

All done?

That's right, the top picture has two women, both members of the Israeli cabinet. The bottom picture is the same shot, but it has replaced the two women with men.

Now why would somebody do that? It's because the bottom picture was published in an ultra-Orthodox Israeli newspaper that determined that publishing the pictures of women would be indecent.

If you ask me, what's indecent is oppressing women and distorting the truth.
