dekker87 Posted April 13, 2011 #76 Share Posted April 13, 2011 well i don't know. what is the point? I was suggesting that people communicate without seeing faces every day. You and I are doing it right now. would people be happy identifying themslves online as a compulsory law with imposed penalties if you didn't? if i'm standing opposite you conversing with you i want to see your face...or at least i don't want you sat there looking at mine from behind a veil. like I said people communicate on the phone, via memos, internet, etc without seeing the others face, so I don;t think that is the point at all. it's entirely the point. if the woman chooses, it cannot be oppression. free choice is diametric to oppression. denying under penaalty the right to wear a veil is oppression too. no it isn't. it's protecting women from religious oppression. does one need a veil to blow themselves up? who said anything about blowing anyone up!?!? you can get a fair bit of semtex under a skull cap. <laughing too hard to even take that seriously> there is no security risk unless we include irrational fear as a threat to feeling secure. of course there is. I agree here, so let people wear what they want. I know a guy who dresses in a fairy costume and walks around the shopping centre, probably quite mad, doesn't bother me or anyone else, not even the police. i think their attitude would be quite different were his face to be covered up. I agree there, but there was no law that non muslims had to show their face. there is now! and it applies to everyone equally. you really don't get this do you... ok - let's try from another angle....how about all non-muslim people carry balaclavas about with them and every time they see a woman with a veil on they pull their balaclavas on? 'quick here comes a muslim woman - everyone get their masks on' what would your opinion of that be? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
