Why do women have to be chaste, to understand the dividing line between public and private, and not to laugh in public? It is a form of discrimination and a disrespect for women.
Have you ever wondered how you would feel if one day you were deprived of the right to laugh in public?
In 7/28 days, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Alins Bülent Arinç, speaking in Busha's Eid al-Fitr address, mentioned that the morals of Turkish women were declining and that women should not laugh in public. "Women must be chaste, they must understand the distinction between public and private, and they cannot laugh in public," he said. 」
With regard to the remarks made by Deputy Prime Minister Alins, there are a number of fairly interesting points to discuss. First, does the Deputy Prime Minister have the right to restrain women's chastity? Such an ALINSGA, overtly sexist speech, reflects that verbal violence in women is clearly less solemn than public laughter. And then, what is the relevance of chastity and laughter? (You should also know that what happened in India: Rape in India, confirmed death penalty )
Even more simply, can we ask whether there is a certain relationship between women's chastity and morality? Is chastity not, on behalf of the female body no longer "clean", deserve to be violated?
In the face of such absurd speeches, thousands of Turkish women poured into Twitter on 30th, laughing and fighting back! In response to the implicit verbal violence of the Turkish Deputy Prime Minister, the two Woman of the #direnkahkaha (resist laughter) and the # Direnkadin (resist hashtag), as well as the brilliant public laughter, were used.
"Alins's speech is not only overly conservative, it also annoys people," said Turkish writer Ece Temelhuran, the first person to retaliate on Twitter's big shot at the Po. 」
The 23-year-old woman named Hazal Naz Besleyici said: "I don't need the government to tell me if I should laugh." 」

Emmahuasen, who was elected this year as UN woman Goodwill Ambassador to the U.N. women's office, also joins the laughing ranks!
The world's women have heard the Turkish Deputy prime Minister's "woman, no more public laughing," after all can not help laughing!
It's not just women who can't watch it, their humor strikes back with the solidarity and support of Turkish men. Turkish television host Fatih Portakal said: "Please God tell me that the speech is a joke." another man said: "In a country where women have no right to laugh, men are just cowards." "" The men of a country in which women are not allowed to laugh are.
It is not to be denied that there is much room for improvement in the situation of women's rights in Turkey. According to the 2009 report on the status of Women, nearly 40% of Turkish women in Turkey have experienced domestic violence. More than 120 women have been killed since the beginning of 2014, most of whom are their partners or family members. (Think together: behind the rape jokes ...) ）
What is most frightening today is that Alins's statement is a stark reflection of the underlying violence against women in Turkish society. After a number of female murders, he still chose to blame the women, for their "no longer strict chastity" charges, imposing restrictions on "no laughing" behavior. Dugan Mehtap Dogan, who promotes feminism in Turkey, said: "Alins's behavior is not only to show dislike of female complex misogyny, but also to use morality as a shield, for sexual violence, rape cases, gender discrimination defense." "(Must tell you: the dress is too short, no one should be violated )
Today, Turkish women choose to use the social media to make a humorous comeback with laughter, and, at the same time, hope that laughter will pass into the ears of more "women must be chaste, so they can't laugh in public." As far as Taiwan, we will continue to pay attention to the hope of witnessing a more and better day in Turkish society!
