Do Muslim reformers really believe they are the first to notice that gender disparities exist in Islam law? When it comes to marriage, eye witness testimony, inheritance, etc., were Muslims of the past just unaware of these disparities, or were they too ignorant to understand — as the modern reformers do — that gender disparity is tantamount to injustice, oppression, and abuse? And were they too incompetent to do anything about it? Only a couple of options. Either past people really were that stupid and/or unethical. Or modern reformers are projecting non-existent injustices onto the past.

As a related example, the idea of transgender acceptance is becoming ever more popular.

    Trans people are fighting for more trivial “rights” like toilets, pronouns and acceptance but they do still benefit from all of the above legal opportunities.
