Easily the most horrifying line of dialogue I’ve ever heard in an animated movie.

i. love. this. movie.

Hold the fuck up. Prince of Egypt is on my dash again. I will literally never not reblog it. This is my favourite film, ever, it made my childhood, it’s quality as all get-out, and it’s a family tradition for us to watch it every year (usually on the second day of Pesach). It’s mindboggling. This is one of the most successful examples in fiction history of taking a concept like that and making it humanised, without completely demonising the enemy figures. And fuck me the character struggles were brilliant. Like glowing kind of brilliant. Like morning-and-evening-star kind of brilliant. When was the last time you saw a film nearly as effective? Let alone a religious one, an animated one, a ‘kids’ one.

THIS

WHERE IS THIS FROM ?

It’s from “la source des femmes”

IT’S TRUE.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THE QU’RAN THAT SAYS WOMEN’S SOLE PURPOSE IS FOR OBEYING AND PROCREATING.

We are allowed to inherit and own property and businesses, and we are allowed to CHOOSE our husbands instead of having them foisted upon us in arranged marriages. WE ARE ALSO ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN COMBAT.

I’ve read the Qu’ran COVER TO COVER and there’s nothing God says about women being LESS than men. In fact, God IMPLORES men to treat women as equals. Probably because God knew men have a tendency to foul things up and has to remind them that WOMEN ARE ALSO PRECIOUS CREATIONS OF HIS DIVINE WILL.

Sorry. I was in my feelings. But this touches my nerves a lot when people misinterpret Islam as some misogynistic religion. Nothing could be further from the truth.
