What If Mona Eltahawy Wrote a New Egyptian Constitution?

Its hard to parody Mona Eltahawy: recall her "they wouldn't dare if I was Black" tweet or support for terrorist Khader Adnan. Still I wonder what it would be like if she wrote a new constitution for Eygpt?

"The bill of rights:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, unless its to stop those poor oppressed women from choosing to wear hijabs. We must save them from themselves. After all hijab bans get results thanks to such bans Turkey has a secularist government that would never attack protesters with skin burning chemicals.

Amendment II

Well regulated privilege checking is necessary for speaking truth to power.

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against mansplaining.

Amendment VIII

Excessive bail shall  be required,  excessive fines imposed and cruel and unusual punishments will be inflicted on those who slut shame and body police women."
