    Kind of ironic don't you think, men who think leather shorts are cool telling women what they can and can't wear.

    Surely any female who went through that would be 100% against it unless one of the above reasons is try.
    It's a combination of 1)-3) wrapped up in a package marked "culture".

    They aren't really aware of the side-effects.
    They believe that without it, no-one will marry them.
    They believe it is a matter of decency.
    They believe "well, it never did me any harm".
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    I completely agree with the banning of caps with the word 'dude' written on them.

    The strain of Islam sponsored by the Saudis, which more and more British mosques are coming under, is very anti-women. They also have this sort of conditioning drilled into them at an early age - western dress is bad, etc. so know no different. It's their normal, just like orange faces and white high heels is Essex's normal.

    I agree - I thought Ali-G was just an extreme character but no he was just reflecting our culture, ahead of his time.

    Interesting reading the comments.

    Take our country back! They screamed. Suddenly we're all tolerant of immigrants.

    Freedom and liberty of the host country must be observed in my opinion. If those freedoms don't match your expectations you should not be surprised when asked to adopt those of your host. I do the same when I travel being carful to understand the local customs.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
