I recently had a most unnerving experience here in Toronto. It was a bright sunny day and I went downtown to stroll around the area near Yonge and
Bloor. (For people who don't know Toronto, that is sort of the crossroads of Toronto. A busy, bustling area with lots of shops, hotels, condos, and
people everywhere.) I was just at Yonge and Bloor waiting for a light to change when along came this lady in a burqa.
What an arresting figure! She was slim and carrying a fashionable handbag. She walked by, crossed the street heading north and soon was gone. She wore
a complete black burqa, with just a slit for her eyes. Her eyes were brown and she had nice long eyelashes. The fabric that the burqa was made of was
opaque and had a little sheen. I think it might have been silk. She looked hot and I don't mean as in the desert sun. I was very intrigued by her.
Dare I say, enticed by her?
Toronto is full of beautiful girls. In the summer, when they are all wearing summer clothing, some of it quite scanty, the scenery can be quite breath
taking. Frequently one sees girls wearing the hijab. The hijab looks a little nun like. The girls wearing them are often cute, but the hijab itself is
really only cute. The burqa is romance, mystery and intrigue. But it gets worse.
A couple of days later I saw a second girl in a similar stylish looking burqa. The effect on me was similar. I was intrigued. This time I had more of
an opportunity to observe her. She, like the other woman I saw was doing nothing in any way out of the ordinary. Only her eyes were exposed to the
world. Everything else about her was hidden. Everything about her was left up to the imagination. Every possibility seemed . . . possible. Nothing was
declared by her appearance, therefore everything was a possibility, at least in the mind.
Bottom line. Anyone who thinks that the burqa does anything but inflame the male imagination, is kidding themselves. Is it possible that the real
purpose of the burqa is the opposite of what we have been told? Is the burqa designed to make the impossible possible?
