Oh baby, those hot red stilettos are so worth it. I can flaunt what I have and enjoy male attention. I can walk the streets and enjoy catcalls. Yes, it's fun to be a woman in the West.

Muslims are not threatening, but fundamentalist Muslims are.
See, the problem with this is you take people like the non threatening Ft Hood shooter, or the kid who drove and SUV into some students, or the Buffalo TV producer who beheaded his wife, or thousands of others and you can't tell who's fundamental and who's not.
Many recent sources (Beckwith and Carter for example) claim that, for Mursi and Surma women, the size of their lip plate indicates the number of cattle paid as the bride price. However anthropologist Turton, who has studied the Mursi for 30 years, denies this.
These days, it appears that Mursi girls of age 13 to 18 decide for themselves whether to wear a lip plate or not. The lip plates worn by Mursi and Surma women have been instrumental in making them a popular tourist attraction in recent years, with mixed consequences for these tribes.
he custom of wearing neck rings is related to an ideal of beauty: an elongated neck. Neck rings push the collarbone and ribs down. The neck stretching is mostly illusory; the weight of the rings twists the collar bone and eventually the upper ribs to create the illusion of an elongated neck.
OK... when i lived in Newham the majority of woman in a store would be in burqas or hijabs... so i guess thats a yes.
Woman who did not wear burqas or hijabs where not harassed (This includes my mother, sisters and friends)
Why do muslim women wear burqa living in the West where they do HAVE A CHOiCE? No one can force them!
I don't know why it is so hard to grasp the fact there most definitely is a very powerful and dedicated segment of Islamic fundamentalists that wish to overcome and 'Islamify' the world. I also don't know why it is so hard to grasp the fact there most definitely are some Muslims who just want to live their life like everyone else.
