Osama Bin Laden’s niece posing for GQ
I read an article talking about Osama Bin Laden’s niece posing for GQ. As if we didn’t have enough smut clogging the gears of society, we now bring you politically charged premium smut.
Granted, Wafah Dufour can do whatever she wants but why was the article entitled, “It Isn’t Easy Being the Sexy Bin Laden.” This is asinine because we are essentially egging the terrorists on. Let’s take a bird’s eye view and think about the consequences of helping Bin Laden’s niece make it big as a sexy model in America. First and foremost, this is a tactic that reminds me of enemies (armies or otherwise) pillaging each other’s women as proof of their superiority. It doesn’t work people because these photos are just as damaging as the Abu Ghraib scandals. Because unlike America, Muslims in the Middle East region don’t try to blur the lines between political life and personal life so of course they will be enraged when they learn of that this story is getting heavy rotation.
After 9/11, we missed the chance to become a better country. It is like 9/11 caused America to hold on tighter to the things that cause us to stumble and then we try to put all of our crap in a box, wrap it up in freedom wrapping paper, and finish with a nice bow of democracy. And then we act confused when people want to return their gifts. Respect and understanding are the first rules of war and once you break those rules, it becomes extremely difficult to get on the moral high ground. We can do better than this.
Stay up fam,
