¿Esperaban otra cosa?

La ley del tabaco abrió la caja de los truenos. Una vez los gobiernos se arrogaron la potestad de decidir si en un bar, o cualquier empresa, se puede admitir a una persona fumando, independientemente de los deseos del dueño del negocio…¿se podía esperar otra cosa?. Ahora ya todo vale ¿Esperaban otra cosa? A la cárcel con la peluquera. ¿Cómo se atreve a querer decidir a quien atender en su negocio?

Una peluquera noruega a juicio por rechazar a una cliente que llevaba «hijab»

Se enfrenta a una pena máxima de seis meses de cárcel

Una peluquera noruega será juzgada esta semana por rechazar a una cliente musulmana que llevaba hijab y se enfrenta a una pena máxima de seis meses de cárcel. Los hechos sucedieron en octubre del pasado año cuando Malika Bayan, de 24 años, entró en un salón de peluquería de Bryne, una pequeña población del suroeste de Noruega, a preguntar el precio por hacerse unos reflejos. Según la denuncia, la propietaria del local, Merete Hodne, indicó a la joven que tenía que buscar otro salón porque no aceptaba clientes como ella.

La policía multó a Hodne con 870 euros por discriminación religiosa, una multa que se ha negado a pagar por lo que ha sido llevada a los tribunales. En su defensa, la peluquera alega que su salón es unisex y que no habría podido atender a clientes masculinos si una joven musulmana estaba en su establecimiento mostrando el cabello, lo que también habría sido discriminatorio.

Además, explicó a la televisión noruega que tiene «miedo del símbolo totalitario del hijab que dice que yo debería ser asesinada y, en esas condiciones, no podría dar un buen servicio». Para Hodne, «la ideología del islam es la del diablo» y comparó el hijab con la esvástica nazi. Los medios de comunicación noruegos han descrito a la peluquera como una activista cercana a movimientos islamófobos, aunque ella no se considera racista sino una persona que lucha contra el islamismo en Europa.

Por su parte, Bayan declaró a la misma cadena de televisión que se sintió humillada. «Es inquietante que trate a la gente así en un país libre. Noruega es mi país. Habla de que el Islam humilla a las mujeres, pero es ella la que me humilló a mí».

En caso de salir condenada, la peluquera ya ha anunciado que recurrirá al Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos.

    Ya abrí un hilo en burbuja sobre una ley que estuvo a punto de aprobarse el último año que el subnormal de ZP estuvo en el gobierno:

    http://www.burbuja.info/inmobiliaria/temas-calientes/646451-ley-igualdad-de-trato-y-no-discriminacion-ley-que-se-acabara-aprobando.html

    Esta ley, además de obligarte a contratar, alquilar o dejar entrar a todo el mundo, además invertía la carga de la prueba; vamos, que además el acusado tenía que demostrar su inocencia, lo que en derecho se conoce como la “probatio diabolica”…

    Una vergüenza. El caso de esta pobre mujer me recuerda a Eugenio del Asador Guadalmina. Lo van a usar para dar escarmiento ante toda la población y ya sabes lo cobarde y mariquita que se han vuelto los europeos (y más por aquellas tierras que llevan casi un siglo de ingeniería social).

    Espero que a este mujer le vaya lo mejor posible.

  3. I have seen an interesting argument made in this general area, particularly as it relates to the wearing of “Burkinis” on beaches.

    How would we feel if Catholic Nuns were treated in such ways?

    The question is larger of course, dealing with international conflicts involving Muslim and non-Muslim nations, dealing with the freedoms of the women involved to wear Nunnery habits or burkhas, the practical factor within our present socio-historical context of the likelihood of someone dressed as a nun concealing a weapon vs. someone dressed in a burkha (although I’d expect that smarter suicide bombers would dress as nuns if they thought they could get a free pass for doing so!), and the rights of people to be treated equally by businesses no matter what their color, sex, religion, clothing, or even smoking status is. (Yes, I’m aware that some businesses are still being allowed to discriminate against smokers in housing and employment, but that’s a situation that needs to be resisted, fought against, and fixed… not copied.)

    – MJM, who’s never had any desire to wear either a nun’s habit or a burkha… they’d get tangled in my bicycle spokes.

      😀😀 I personally have no probs with nuns covered head to toe, nor with burkinis (faces must be visible, though, that’s non negotiable). Thing is nuns, dress that way voluntarily. That is not always the case with burkinis. As for burkas, I saw my share. And even an ex of mine, HAD TO wear them. Trust me MJM, you can not imagine how it feels when you skype with a person you know and love and she shows you, no warning, how she looks like outside of the hotel. Her voice is there, her mannerisms. She is she, unmistakably. But she talks behind a full body mask. She’s been annulled.

      As for smokers ( I dislike the word and avoid it. I am not a “smoker”, but just a person who smokes, for smoking does not define me, just as eating cheeses does not define me and I am not a cheese eater, just because I eat cheese), I am fully aware of the situation as you are, and I fight it as best I can. What else can we do.🙂

  4. “Thing is nuns, dress that way voluntarily. That is not always the case with burkinis.”

    LeCroix, I fully and strongly agree with you about the oppression of women in that culture. To some extent we see that in certain Christian subcultures as well (E.G. I believe in the Amish culture the women are strongly subjugated to the men — although they’re not wearing burkhas or nun-habits. I’m pretty sure an Amish woman who tried strolling around in a bikini would rather quickly find herself “shunned” — which, psychologically/culturally, is a near-death experience for some people.)

    I’ve always been puzzled by our Western cultures’ acceptance (and particularly the quietness of our more vocal feminist elements) regarding the position of women in cultures that treat them as lesser beings. Yes, there’s an argument to be made for respecting the “cultural integrity” of other cultures… but couldn’t that same argument have been made regarding racial apartheid in South Africa or even within American subcultural pockets of the South during our 1950s and ’60s? Of course here in the US we had the justification of enforcing our laws and the protections granted by our Constitution — but for many decades those laws and protections had been, to a great extent, ignored by a cultural racism that tolerated “keeping blacks in their place” in the Southern states (and , although with a lower profile, also in many non-Southern parts of the country.)

    Is it just a matter of practicality? I.E. We in the US or you in Spain cannot do much about the status of women in Iran for example unless we wanted to wage an all-out war over the matter. Perhaps we could apply the same sort of “pressure” we applied to South Africa…. but then that raises another question: many of the women in the Muslim, Asian, Amish, or other arguably sex-oppressive cultures will claim they fully accept, believe in, and even prefer their societal positions. What right do we have, from our “superior” “feminist-aware” position to impose our beliefs on THEM?

    It’s a tricky question. No easy answers once you move aware from the extremes.

    I’ve just lost my long answer to you. A shorter one will have to do🙂 A bit insensitive one, perhaps

    I don’t care if muslim women are oppressed. They share their male’s goals and beliefs, overwhelmingly. If they want help, they can ask for it. We’ll help. But most of them, do not ask for such help.

    Amish women. Same thing. Only “shunning” doesn’t seem to me that much of a “punishment”. Not when compared to lapidation. An Amish woman wants to be free? Come to Vegas baby, no questions asked. But most, don’t. Because they don’t want to.

    As for blacks…today I was listening to Mark Levin talking about Rosa Parks and Colin Kaepernick.

    Miss Parks was probably a leftist kook, not to my liking. But she was right on not having to give her seat in a bus to a white person. That’s just stupid. She can seat anywhere she wants in a bus, just like others. Period.

    Now Kaepernick:

    That takes care of that.

    No, I’m not much into defending women’s rights in other cultures. And I’m not much into defending black’s rights in our culture. In my view, they are sufficiently, more than sufficiently, defended, those rights.

    And just like Kaprizchka, I’m not much into western feminism.

    Moreover, I’m into defending, right here, righ now in Spain, the rights of white, middle-aged, heterosexual ( I hate that word😀 ) males.

    We are the trully oppressed, here

      Heh, you left something out: “white, middle-aged, hetero, male SMOKERS.”

      Here in the US you can sue if you’re discriminated against on any of those other bases. But in about half our states you have no rights in that regard if you’re discriminated against in jobs or housing as a smoker.

        True, I left ” smoker” out. I thought of it thought, but left it out as perhaps too sectarian. You are right of course. White middle aged sexually on target by biological standards, tobacco smoking males🙂
