The issue is with our culture of honesty. If we do biz, we want to see the others face. It has to do with trust. That´s how our society works. You
also can´t walk into a Bank or Gas Station with your bike helmet (the heavy ones) when it covers your face. Of course that´s up to the owners.
Also, we live in a free land where equality is embraced to a point where we have women quotes that corporations need to fulfill, even in high ranks.
So wearing a burka, that does not allow the expression of feelings and acts as a shield to our public socieity. It does not fit. I fully support
banning burkas in public.
If they feel they need to wear burkha and value it over the pillars of the society that they live in, I simply suggest moving to a land where they can
wear it. It´s a symbol of opression. I once thought otherwhise. I know several egypts since long. It was told to me it has to do with honesty and
respect. Indeed at their homes they wear normal dresses. But I have learned, it´s just what the men are telling the women.
It was also explained it has to do with avoiding evil thoughts. Well, I said to him, that´s the difference, if she truly loves some other, why would
I force her to stay with me. It´s the cultural difference that made him not understand my points.
I´m against it because it´s delimitating. It´s not friendly nor open to walk around fully hidden. No problem with headscarfes or such, but the
complete veil, I´m against it. Nobody can sell my anymore that it´s not a sign of opression. If someone on the street would aproach me in this thing
asking for something, I would friendly tell her to either show face or find someone else. If she´s offended by religion, then I can mistrust someone
who does not want to show the face when talking to.
