    Default Austria to ban full-face veil in public places

    Or because Austria has far more far-right fascists who will vote through this kind of thing, and far less veil-wearers to oppose it?
    What do the women want to wear?

    Walking round the Trafford centre the other day and lots of women covered head to toe.

    At the same time thier husbands are wearing rapper type clothes Ali g style, one guy had his baseball hat on back to front with dude written on it. I actually like women and it was just very sad.

    Unfortunately some of the women have got it into their heads if they are covered up like that then it shows they are more religious. The fact that the majority of Muslims in the countries their ancestors are from (including if they are Western converts) aren't Wahhabists is lost completely on them. The Saudis have a lot to answer for...

    If the burqa or full-face veil is a symbol of female oppression, why does it matter if some women want to wear it and are prevented? Some women support FGM (in fact, without their support it wouldn't be so prevalent).
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Is that because they genuinely believe it has any benefits or is it because

    1) they are dirt poor and stoopid and know no better
    2) they have been told by the 'insert important religious figure here' that they must
    3) it happened to them so they will inflict it on their children out of spite?


    Surely any female who went through that would be 100% against it unless one of the above reasons is try.

    The most tragic part of this story is that you were walking round the Trafford Centre.

    It's nice to know you like women but in this scenario I think the women have the better deal in terms of fashion.
