    my goodness even when she bails because things get too hard we cant stop hearing about her

    its strange that a provocateur spits the dummy and takes off when she cops a bit of backlash

    http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment...20170717-gxd6nv.html?_sm_au_=iFVjW4SjD6fj7L3R

    seems the left are really losing it over her free choice to leave the country though but most if not all of them miss the point.. people are free to criticise what she says... its her incessant identity politics that most of us find tiresome and even in spitting the dummy she blames it all on her being a brown muslim woman.

    this brown muslim woman has actually been given far more opportunities and far more air play than most people her age so its a bit hard to believe she is just a victim of racism/sexism/islamaphobia. maybe thats what people find pretty insulting?

    Where she's being threatened with any sort of violence she has my sympathy. It shouldn't be happening where someone is expressing a simple opinion.

    As for what she says; guess what, it's open for reasonable criticism and debate just like anything that you or I say and it shouldn't be tarred with the same broadbrush of racism/Islamophobia/misogyny out of convenience.

    I never understood the fascination with her? She is a female in her 20's, they say and do a lot of stupid things. Better to ignore her tbh.

    You can't stop hearing about her, don't want to hear about her and say the left are losing it over her. So you start a thread about her?

    What outrage? I've not really followed the story other than she said something dumb on Anzac day.
    So she has left the country and is still triggering conservatives?

    20 something year old says dumb shit on social media and then shits the bed and leaves the country when getting criticised for the typically dumb 20 something shit she says.

    the tidal wave of stories about how terrible it is that she has "had" to leave is pretty funny though, particularly as its primarily coming from the Clementine Ford-style feminists who you'd think would hate her given her constant defending of the treatment of women in islamic states

    She left the country, she didn't even have to fill out the departure form.

    I agree, although I'm quite sure Ford has defended Yassmin. She also has a tremendous blindspot in her semi-daily rantings when it comes to any sort of treatment of women in the islamic world.

    While I don't agree with her on many subjects there is no excuse to verbally attack her and threaten her. Her ideas? Yeah, challenge or defend them all you like but people are different to ideas.Furthermore, if it is her ideas which you disagree with (as I do) then threatening her is about the worst way to convince her that her ideas are lacking or wrong.
