Considering that Sweden’s rape problem which led to Stockholm being proclaimed the rape capital of Europe come from the Koran, not Transformers, I don’t think that a feminism rating for movies is going to solve anything.
Neither did making toys gender free, except to make the generation of Swedish men even less masculine, but the left needs its weapons of identity politics distractions to divert everyone’s attention from the barbarians at the gate.
“The goal is to see more female stories and perspectives on cinema screens,” said Ellen Tejle, the director of Bio Rio – one of the four cinemas to adopt the ratings system.
To receive an “A” rating, the film must have at least two named female characters who talk to each other about something other than a man.
“If they want different kind of movies they should produce some themselves and not just point fingers at other people,” said Tanja Bergkvist, a physicist who writes a blog about Sweden’s “gender madness.”
Hynek Pallas, a Swedish film critic, also criticised the state-funded Swedish Film Institute – the biggest financier of Swedish film – for vocally supporting the project, saying a state institution should not “send out signals about what one should or shouldn’t include in a movie.”
Meanwhile here’s the real problem for Swedish women and it doesn’t involve who women in movies talk to and about what.
Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa, which at 53.2 per 100,000 is six times higher than the United States. Statistics now suggest that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped.
And Sweden has predictably responded to these rapes with some harsh criminal penalties.
The six teenage boys put on trial for the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl represent a rainbow of Muslim diversity. There are Turks, Arabs and Africans.
Five of the teens were found guilty of aggravated rape by the Solna District Court on Friday, with the sixth guilty of attempted aggravated rape.
Five of the boys have been sentenced to over 100 hours of community service each.
But surely if they had killed her instead of gang raped her, the penalty would be more severe…
Majed, a 17-year-old Iraqi immigrant, stabbed his sister Maria to death inflicting 107 wounds with two knives and a pair of scissors.
His sister had returned to Landskrona after she broke up from a forced marriage in Iraq. The Court also established that the brother on more than one occasions before the murder intimidated his sister and called her demeaning epithets like whore and slut.
“I thought the sentence was very strong, it was a very tough punishment. I do not share at all the district court’s perception of the seriousness of the offense,” says the 17-year-old’s defense attorney, Mr. Jansson.
And the defense attorney got his wish. The 8 year sentence has been reduced to 4.
So yes. Let’s talk more Bechdel Test while promoting Muslim immigration.
An Islamic Mufti in Copenhagen sparked a political outcry after publicly declaring that women who refuse to wear headscarves are “asking for rape.” Apparently, he’s not the only one thinking this way.
“It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid.
Can we get a feminist rating for that?
