    "What is cultural relativism and how does it relate to how feminists and other SJWs support Muslims?"

    Cultural Relativism is the concept that cultural norms and values derive their meaning from within a specific social context or culture and should not be judged by any others comparatively.

    Therefore, in an Islamic culture, where women are treated with lesser respect, agency and Rights than how we have developed in the West, feminists will have nothing to day about that lesser treatment because modern feminists follow cultural relativism as part of their radical cultural M@rxists agenda.

    This is crazy, of course. Following ideas that really seem to excuse backwardness, including the mistreatment of women, under the guise that all cultures are equal …. just because some people might get hurt feelings if you call out their bad side. But this is the inevitable outcome of 2nd wave feminists having accepted “intersectionality” into their movement, which has now morphed feminism right into cultural M@rxism.

    The belief in cultural relativism can lead to some bad experiences. Especially for women who want to travel in Islamic countries where they are not viewed as equal, like the are in the West. See this video which explains much of this ugly side:

      Nope. It's meant to read "...have nothing to SAY..."

      I don't dare correct this now. I have found that editing an answer that has a video is attached will ghost the answer after editing.

      There is even a couple more very minor things in there. I won't point them out though :)

    Cultural relativism refers to not judging a culture to our own standards of what is right or wrong, strange or normal. Instead, we should try to understand cultural practices of other groups in its own cultural context. For example, instead of thinking, “Fried crickets are disgusting! ” one should instead ask, “Why do some cultures eat fried insects?”. You may learn that fried crickets or grasshoppers are full of protein and in Mexico, it is famous Oaxaca regional cuisine and have been eaten for thousands of years as a healthy food source!

    This is not to suggest that all cultures and societies are equal as many misinterpret. Nazi Germany was not an equally valid society to Constitutional Democracies. A society is valued on its success at nurturing the human spirit.

    It really doesn't have anything to do with either. It's an anthropology protocol.

    Cultural relativism is not judging a culture by our own, or different, standards.

    So feminists might be said to use this if they don’t call out examples of misogyny where Muslim culture is different to European culture and believed to be misogynistic.

    SJW is a meaningless abbreviation. Its usually used by keyboard warriors as a way of looking down on those who believe in social justice. People who use the term SJW often like other buzzwords like cultural Marxism. Part of the fantasy life of right-wingers these days.

    It’s an excuse to let people of certain demographics act inappropriately.

    Example: “We need to put up with Muslims raping Swedish women, because in Muslim society these women have it coming for going out alone and not wearing a hijab. It would be culturally insensitive to hold these Muslim immigrants accountable by western laws, so we just ignore the problem”.

    Cultural relativism means that ideology which believes that all cultures around the world are respectable and must not be viewed as "savagery" or "backward". From my own point of view, I don't have much faith on "cultural relativism".

    These SJWs and feminists are rather too empathetic about Muslims which is bad. They don't see what id happening in their own country. We can't let anyone to enter our country like that. So many Middle Eastern men come to Europe and tease European women or exploit them. SJWs will respect those Muslims, but they will tolerate when a Muslim insults their own European culture. I call these feminists and hypocrites as BUNCH OF CROOKS. It's like Europeans are pushovers.
