    I have a problem trying to associate lack of religion as a religion to be honest, but I guess people will always try and a) make money out of everything b) do something just to tick people off.

    I know, just trolling, you know how they love to point out that it's a religion.

    There isn't much to respond to really. Sure you could deal with some individual examples referenced by the OP but you are never going to escape the fact that Islam is a sexist religion. The Abrahamic ones all are.

    You can't assign gender roles and practices without being sexist. Unless you stop speaking English and use some other definition for the word.

    One thing I can say for sure is OP's translation of Quraan is incorrect, secondly if OP was as informed as he portrays himself he would know that one cannot translate directly from Quraan as Quraan was revealed over a period of 13 yrs and different rulings were applicable at different times.

    True I suppose because soon as assign a specific role to a specific gender then by definition is sexiest. I suppose your earlier quote is best answer then

    Exactly. I actually said it better in that previous post you have quoted.

    I personally don't agree with prescribed gender roles. Each person must do what they want screw what some dogma says. If someone willingly submits himself or herself to living within that dogma then I am cool with that. As long as it always remains his/her choice. Unfortunately in many parts of the world this isn't the case and conformity is enforced by law.
