120. Quite few here have stood up for Women. They did so by saying, Yes, they oppose the veil in its form
Edited on Wed Aug-31-11 03:57 PM by nomb
Break the chain - give this generation of women sunlight, and give the men who would like to support liberalism in women's rights the excuse, and State backing, to do so.

The laws in Europe are a tool for breaking the chain of repression of Chattel held in bondage.

It's equivalent in many ways to Affirmative Action - it seeks to leap ahead by forcing a pro-active break with the cultural millstones that hold a class of human beings back.

We could wait for white men to grant True equality of opportunity to those who are not white - just as we could wait for Islamic men to free women.

Or we can break the chains of repression. I say break the chains.

What say you?

The veil is a tool for repression, death, acid in the face, beatings are used to enforce conformity

The French and other nations are quite right in forcing it.

We in the USA on the other hand have a different and equally correct cultural heritage. The French nation is founded as much on eliminating church influence from political influence as ours is founded on absolute separation.

I would oppose the French laws here - but I strongly support them in France, and I will always oppose the Islamic actual forced submission and subjugation of women through clothing.
