      Dear me. Anyone can see you keep bumping the thread up. Which is strictly against the TOS and will eventually piss everyone off so they complain. wink

    If it is in the interest of security they have a point. Personally I think it should be illegal to wear your pants hanging down off your butt. But no one seems to have a problem with that.

    And to say the veil is to keep other men from looking at the body is stupid. Everybody has a face and it is important for identification in the case of crime. 

    If a man gets off because he sees a womans face it should have more to say about him not her.  It's ridiculous.

    I think it has more to do with power and oppression of women. Muslims do not think women are equal and therefore. This is a way of keeping them under their thumb. You don't see men hiding their faces.

    If a woman has to cover her face, body, ankles, etc., then so should the men. Why the women have to be walking around in sheets like ghosts is just ludicrous. The people who think they should be walking around wearing that garb should have to wear it as well.

    And in my opinion, there are more guys than gals that should be covering up their mugs. wink

      We all know the reason women can't go topless is because men can't control themselves. Perhaps men should not be allowed to go topless either. I'm with you. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
