'Extremist is the secular word for heretic'
Absolutely correct: Daesh, Al Qaeda and most jihadis are certainly heretics. They deliberately violate the Quran and pretend they are doing it in the name of Allah. They are mohareb.
No, Islam Is Not Inherently Misogynistic. More power to the women of Islam to remove the ugly and pervasive stain of sexism and mysogyny from the religion of Allah as it is practiced in so many places today.
However "Monarchy, colonialism and violent dictatorship, which have affected most Muslim countries at some point in their histories, have served to ingrain those patriarchal principles" is its-always-someone-else's-fault nonsense. The male chauvinist pigs that clutter our mosques or sit as Imams did not need any help from secular rulers - their mysogyny springs from their own hearts.

United Nations Says Parents Smacking Children In Any Setting Should Be Made IllegalEverything that is not compulsory should be illegal. Every aspect of our lives should be governed by laws and the courts and we should punish anyone who does not agree. It should be illegal to say unkind words to another, it should be illegal not to exercise and eat healthily, it should be illegal not to brush your teeth and get 8 hours of sleep each night, etc, etc, etc.
