A reminder of something that should surprise no one but the feminists; the large majority of conversions to Islam in the west are women in order to be with a Muslim man & because they want "rigid" gender roles, and the rate of such conversion is increasing. Christian & secular European men appear to have failed a rather massive shit test.
"In the past 10 years some 100,000 British people have converted to Islam, of whom some three-quarters are women, according to the latest statistics. This is a significant increase on the 60,000 Britons in the previous decade... the average age of conversion is 27... 'research also found converts came in two types: some are converts of convenience, who adopt the religion because of a life situation such as meeting a Muslim man, although the religion has little discernible impact on their day-to-day lives. For others it is a conversion of conviction where they feel a calling and embrace the religion robustly. That's not to say the two are mutually exclusive – sometimes converts start out on their religious path through convenience and become converts of conviction later on.'
Another finding... was that despite Western portraits of Islam casting it as oppressive to women, a quarter of female converts were attracted to the religion precisely because of the status it affords them.
Some analysts have argued that dizzying social and cultural upheavals in Britain over the past decades have meant that far from adopting an alien way of life, some female Muslim converts are re-embracing certain aspects of mid-20th-century Britain, such as rigid gender demarcation, rather than feeling expected to juggle career and family."
