  •  But I'm not telling them what to wear (0+ / 0-)

    I'm not.  I have never told a Muslim woman to remove her headscarf, and I never will.  If it's truly her choice, then fine.  I am simply reacting to the way they choose to present themselves.  I find it offensive based on the cultural history, which is my right.

    They have the right to dress how they like, and I have the right to react to it.  That's how freedom works.  What they don't get to do is dress however they like, and then make it a thought crime to not like it.

    But you should note that the wearing of the headscarf went way up after the Taliban started beating up and killing women who didn't want to wear it.  A lot of women simply decided it wasn't worth dying over.  The amount of voluntary use is up for debate.
