If you want to see a great example of how "not offending Muslims" overrides leftist HPers' other values like "women's rights", look no further than the top comment on the Huffington Post thread about the recent opening of women to combat roles in the US military:
According to jsarets and 59 of his closest friends here, women should be deprived of the opportunity to risk their lives to serve their country and the ability to advance in rank and make a career in the military (the way men can) because...it might offend Muslims.
Maybe we shouldn't let women be in the military at all. Or gay people. Or Jews. Or Christians. Don't want to offend anyone!...except for women, gays, Jews, and Christians, I guess.
