34. Lousy Satire
Edited on Sat Dec-06-03 05:51 PM by Nederland
This attempt at satire misses a rather key point. Women in Western countries are "forced" to wear certain clothes by virue of the fact that if they don't they may suffer the horrible fate of having fewer men finding them attractive or hearing an uncomplimentary comment now and then. Women in Muslim countries are "forced" to wear certain clothes by virue of the fact that if they don't they may be executed.

Is the difference lost on the author?
