British PM David Cameron has found out the hard way that Muslim women are not as "traditionally submissive" as he thinks. 

In addition to his threat to deport women who don't learn English, The Telegraph reported earlier this month that Cameron blamed the "traditional submissiveness of Muslim women" for leaving young men vulnerable to radicalisation, suggesting that mothers are unwilling to speak out against the influence of radical Imams. 

He probably wasn't expecting the powerful backlash that followed. 

Appropriating his phrase on social media, Muslim women in Britain - and then around the world - let the PM know, loud and clear, just how #TraditionallySubmissive they really are.

The Prime Minister has not yet apologised or commented on whether he's learned his lesson.
