Women in Iraq are up in arms over a new law that gives husbands the right to force their wives to have sex with them whenever they want.

Two dozen women protested the new law, which also allows girls as young as nine to be married and automatically grants husbands custody. The protest took place on March 8, which was also International Women’s Day.

“We believe that this is a crime against humanity,” Hanaa Eduar, an Iraqi human rights activist, said. “It would deprive a girl of her right to live a normal childhood.”

So while women in Iraq are deprived of their freedom to marry when and whom they want, and forced to have sex when they don’t want, what were so-called feminists in America doing?

Coming up with the “Ban Bossy” campaign.

Yes, as women in other countries lose basic human rights and freedoms, the elite women of America were trying to ban a word.

Can you say “first-world problems”?
