Your idea of Islam is oppressive. Things are very relative when it comes to opinions. What you call as tent is just an idea of modesty. You
have your own idea for it. You judging a muslimah as oppressed is the same if some Muslim judges your dressing as revealing. You do know how your
react to that and you would consider that individual as ignorant/judgemental etc. How about using some golden rule here??
You don't think those women in Afghanistan would prefer not
to be draped in a full burqa with a grill to look out of?
I'm not talking about a brightly colored scarf and jewelry and silk clothes and robes like the Indian women wear. They look beautiful in their Saris
and scarves (we white girls can't get away with dressing like that - I've heard it's mocked for Western women to try to emulate the Indian
And Islam IS oppressive toward women. Whether THEY think they are oppressed or not is a different matter.
No driving (Saudi Arabia)? No talking or even looking at men (in various areas)? No schooling? I realize these 'customs' vary and their Sharia
codes are different from country to country,
and I know that Muslimah women in the West have freedom to dress how they like, and in other countries as well; the other day I read an article about
the "correct" dress for them as considered from various locations. In the West there ARE decency laws, you know.
I'm getting the picture now - your mission is to tell EVERYBODY how they are doing things "wrong" according to you. Correct?
LOL!! Well, I see that in myself when I confront Fundamentalists (of any religion) who shame, threaten, degrade, and control other people. And I
don't switch it on and off depending on who I'm talking to; defending them on one hand and berating them on the other.
But I'm right
