JTEM whining about this & that, plus the secrets of the universe and the occasional chicken recipe.

JTEM, thanks for the input(I’m on my home computer so no fancy star for you):
I have never argued that the burqa/hijab is a fashion statement.
As a non-Muslim who happens to be male, I explicitly have made the point that many Muslim women actively choose to wear a head covering and that a good amount are not forced into doing so.
The point is, you recognize “Internalized repression” when it’s on the basis of color, but you’re blind to it when it’s on the basis of sex.
“Woman are freely choosing to do EXACTLY what their comically sexist cultures requires them to do. It’s all just coincidence.”
You can’t see any further than yourself, and in this case it’s your own hypocritical racism against white people that is blinding you to the obvious…
