The negative experience of so many female Muslims in their native countries in the areas of education, employment, law, and violence, provided presenter Frederick Tamagi with a different and controversial context for the words “tolerance” and “freedom”.

Real contronyms are embedded with their opposite meaning until their proper context is revealed. For that reason, we are compelled to wait for, or search for the proper context to know what the contronyms really mean.

Our most important words have the potential to be distorted and even wrongly applied if we are too simplistic about our symbols or careless about the context.
