10 May 2012 / TODAY'S ZAMAN, İSTANBUL Sixteen percent of respondents in an IPSOS poll say hitting a woman is at times necessary. In the public opinion poll commissioned by CNN Türk on violence against women, 16 percent of those surveyed agree with the statement If necessary, a woman may be hit.
People do not think it is good and discourage women from staying out late at night, according to the poll respondents.
The opinion that women's place is inside the home is still dominant in Turkey, the poll finds. Turkey ranks only behind India and leads Japan, China and Russia in the prevalence of this concept on women's role in society. The lowest levels of what experts call a patriarchal concept of women's social role rooted in gender inequality are seen in Argentina, France, Mexico and Brazil.
Poll findings reveal a high number of respondents who agree with the statement If I saw my spouse with another person of the opposite sex in the street, my reaction would be harsh. The perspective on women's freedom in society is even narrower.
Violence against women continues to be a pressing concern in Turkey, where 40 percent of women have reported being exposed to physical or sexual violence.
What is the difference between a Muslim woman and an OWS woman.
The OWS woman gets stoned BEFORE she gets raped
In a related study, it was determined that 16% of Turkish wives are nags.
The OWS woman also backs radical Muslims... what a strange world.
It’s nobody’s business but the Turks’!
(And they can change Constantinople back to Istanbul, as far as I’m concerned.)
I wonder if this was a poll of all Turks, or just the male ones. How many of the women share the sentiment?
84% refused to comment...
It does go to prove that freedom to speak ones mind is more alive in Turkey than in the USA.
Saw a guy wearing a T-shirt in a mall in Virginia many years ago. It read:
400,000 battered women in this country and all this time I been eating ‘em raw.
Where do you think the expression “I’d hit it!” came from?
Q: What do you tell a Muslim wife with two black eyes?
A: Nothing. You've already tole her twice.
I’m going to share something here I’ve not shared much because this article really hits home. When I was a freshman in college (eons ago!)I had a guy from Turkey in a class. I had never been exposed to different cultures, knew NOTHING about Islam. He was a wealthy Islamic student and we talked during class, eventually he asked me to go to dinner. It was a “just friends” thing...Ha! To make a long story short, it was the only time in my life someone tried to date-rape me. When I tried to fight him he told me he had, “bought me dinner and I owed him.” Terrifying. This is the culture the feminists worship at the foot of. Makes me sick.
Yet more feminist propaganda about the “evil patriarchy”. It does get boring after a while all this hysteria about domestic violence which in the west has been redefined to be basically anything that might piss off your significant other. Spare me the preaching, the west has been turned into a free fire zone against men and now they want to do that world wide. At least in Muslim countries men still have the nads to stand up against this sort of garbage, here in the west we’ve already been neutered.
Only 16 percent? The Muslim faith appears weak in Turkey.
99.9% of American women say shooting Muslim husbands when they attack is fine.
This whole thing is such a dead horse, from a western feminist perspective.
This whole you never hit anyone is crap.
You should never attack another person without a good, valid reason.
But if I am under attack from someone I do not care what gender they are. I will defend myself. People who attack other people are not gentlemen or ladies and should not expect to be treated as one would treat another civilized person.
You never hit anyone is just a zero tolerance mantra. In defense you hit whoever’s attacking you.
Only 16%? I tell ya, these people become more and more civilized each and every day.
Took the Baskent Express between Ankara and Istanbul many times and the one constant was the workers in the fields were all women and children. I can understand the response to this survey, given who does the majority of the physical labor in Turkey. Beating your slaves won’t increase their output.
