Obviously the bulky, shapeless look is in this spring!

Right ladies! To the catwalk!

yes, it's interesting when christian people can say how awful it must be to be a Muslim woman because they have to were something over their head..but they dont realize that nuns wear about the same thing.

As a Canadian, I view these styles as very practical - just make them out of wool!

Yes, but in Islam (almost) all women are either forced or pressured to wear the outfit and large numbers of them much worse than depicted here, while Christian women are not, only a special category who voluntarily subject themselves to becoming a nun.

Orthodox Judaism I don't want to talk about. That's just too ugly and depressing.

Well.. when you spend most of your adult life pregnant, you really need something that you can move in.

Not many religions embrace the "flaunt what the good Lord gave ya" doctrine.

It is not so much about not allowing women to advertise their beauty, it's about the owner protecting his property, in the Abrahamic tradition a woman is a man's property. The concept of a nun is the same, only here the exception is the property belongs to a non-existing man.

You can see the sexless uniform as a mobile cage.

When I said that nuns were property of a non-existing man, I meant of course nominally.

Evidence that religion is an institution created by men to control women.

Or by jealous women who don't go out much.
