Beautiful Freedom (NSFW)

Sila Sahin Playboy Cover Freedom, especially women’s freedom from the vile and utter degradation, exploitation, and enslavement of Islam, is always a beautiful thing. Sometime though, that freedom and individuals’ bids to achieve it are more beautiful than others.

A particularly poignant case in point is the Turkish-German daytime television star, Sila Sahin’s extraordinarily beautiful bid for freedom from the constraints of Muslim “society.”

She has given her all to achieve a freedom.

Sila Sahin, who plays Ayla zgl in the German soap opera, Gute Zeiten, Schlechte Zeiten (Good Times, Bad Times) posed for the German edition of Playboy in a bid for freedom from the constraints of Muslim “Society” and the Shari’a-based oppression of her family.

Freedom From Muslim Oppression Is A Beautiful Thing

And it was truly a bid for freedom and a protest against the repression and misogyny endemic to the Muslim World.

Posing provocatively on the cover of German Playboy magazine with one breast exposed, Sahin seems to be sending a clear and deliberate message to her conservative Turkish family.

“I did it because I wanted to be free at last. These photographs are a liberation from the restrictions of my childhood,” she said.

Her family has, unsurprisingly, reacted with horror, and her mother has cut off all contact with the actress.

“My mother is still angry. It will be even more difficult with my grandparents, my aunts and my uncles,” she said on the website devoted to her television soap.

She has, however, managed to talk to her actor father, who expressed concern over the pressure she will inevitably face from the Muslim community.

Frankly, I’m unsure of Sahin’s father’s motivation for his apparent moderation. It could be – and I hope it is so – that he truly is evolved enough to support his daughter’s choice of freedom, or it could be that disowning her would lose him access to her income, something that he would control under Shari’a until Sila’s marriage.

He’s absolutely right about one thing though; Sila Sahin needs to be worried about the response of the Muslim “community.” They have a long and brutal history of violent reprisals against women who behave in any manner other than utter subservience. Those women who aren’t murdered often wish that they had been.

Victim’s of Islam’s Misogyny and Savagery

I’d like to think that, living in the Civilized World, Sila Sahin would be safe from the more savage forms of Muslim reprisal. That’s hardly a foregone conclusion though, as women such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali can attest. Hence, the twenty-five year old actress has placed herself at risk.

Sila Sahin’s choosing to pose for Playboy was certainly a brave and extremely beautiful bid for freedom. We must all just hope that she doesn’t pay too high of a price for it.

    It’s a publicity stunt, designed to give her a career boost. All that “liberation” crap is part of the PR strategy and people are apparently falling for it.

    Nice pics though.

  2. jonolan Says:

    Sure, HCM, if you say so.

  3. luna Says:

    whatever ms. sahin’s reasoning. she certainly does speak for those who have been brutalized, maimed and oppressed by a “religion” which devalues women and gives men the right to blame them for their own shortcomings. kudos!

  4. jonolan Says:

    I think Ms. Sahin speaks out for their plight, luna. I’m not sure, however, how many of these women themselves she speaks for. I think that if she did actually speak for them, she wouldn’t have to do so in the first place.

    The oppression of Islam only continues because those it oppresses allow it to do so. When and if they’re willing to pay the price of breaking Islam’s shackles, the oppression will end – as will the lives of the oppressors.

    My hope is that brave women like Ms. Sahin will tip the balance and get the oppressed women under Islam to take that step.

    The only good part about multiculturalism, the only good part, is being able to have sex with different looking women and eating different foods.

  6. ecks why Says:

    allah approved misogyny is one of many severe problems with islam which is dangerous no matter how it is packaged…

    the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    see the links in the pdf version below for more accurate info about islam
    ==========

    islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

    5 key things about islam

    1. mythical beliefs – all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

    2. totalitarianism – islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

    3. violence – islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

    4. dishonesty – only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo’s peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

    5. misogyny – present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

    conclusions ??

    there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

    islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.

    You include:

    mythical beliefs all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

    That’s not a problem per se; it is merely the nature of faith. It is, however, a fact that can and has been exploited by the imams, mullahs, and ayatollahs to enslave their populations and to attempt to enslave or destroy the rest of the world.

    Aside from that point of contention – and a dislike for comments that merely cut & paste others’ efforts – I agree with you.

  8. ecks why Says:

    hi jonolan – thanks i’m glad we agree but rest assured it was me who strung those words together, i’m not a real writer so it took a few months but that 5 points blurb started as posts on craigslist debating mooselimbs & libtards and eventually i polished them up put into a 1 page flyer after some prompting from a blog owner & checking them at some apologetics websites. i did the graphics first & have a few more that are much harsher so i don’t post them anymore 🙂

    i cant believe you people mixes traditions (in this context is Turkish) with Islam itself, better do some research before falling into stereotypes or prejudices or whatever propaganda they throw on these matters (especially Islam), and most of the postings here are only projections / reflections of hate based either of lack of knowledge or just copy paste from other people’s opinions.

    What is ‘freedom’ by definition anyway ? It has different meanings on different countries.. and in some levels if freedom means women can have career, high level education.. look for Malaysia, Indonesia and some countries.. they even have women minister in government.

    This is just a perfect degradation of freedom itself.. by showing nudity means that you achieved ‘freedom’ ?

    Islam DOES NOT tie women so they just regarded as property of men (that one is tradition), what i read about Islam values women highly, viewed as best nation’s / generation’s former. There’s a lot in there, you people instead of burning flame in heart should search for the truth behind these junk propagandas. Search about the teachings itself, not the traditions or mispractices by people that makes others misunderstood it.

  10. jonolan Says:

    That’s nice, orang bodoh. It’s idiotic and false or mistaken, but sort cute in its way.

    Islam is Islam – and it’s made up of those Arab, Ottoman, and African traditions as much as it’s made up of anything they chose to include in the Qur’an, Hadith, and the Sunna.

    And don’t bother lauding the Malays and Indonesians as the best of a bad lot. They practice female genital mutilation just as many other Muslim populations do and their versions and basis for polygamy aren’t much better than what is found in sub-Saharan Africa and with less economic excuse.

    In other words, give it up, Haryono. All you’re doing is spreading propaganda and you’re doing that quite poorly.

  13. Alfie Says:

    I saw this and was reminded of a number of other episodes where Muslim women had taken some type of stand. The FEMEN girl from Tunisia readily applies. The thing is such efforts probably fail to offer much support for Islamic women. No matter how much you want an education,the ability to drive or a host of rights exploitive self aggrandizing exhibitionism probably doesn’t speak to your concerns within your belief bubble.

  14. jonolan Says:

    True, Alfie. Yet, we must take what we can get and laud those women who do take a stand against Islam, not matter how little chance they have of making a difference.
