    You're the one who clearly has an issue that you need to deal with.  

    •  I have an issue with women being called unclean (0+ / 0-)

      Which is exactly what burkas and headscarves and hijab dress in general do.  That's their purpose, that's what it means.

      If it was about modesty, then men would wear them too.  It's only forced on women, because women are the ones singled out by Islam as being unclean, needing to hide from society.

      Yes, I have a very big problem with that.  And no amount of political correctness pressure is going to make me think it's okay for a culture to discriminate against women.
