Most young women will wear whatever they believe will be most effective to attract a potential mate. If in the Islamic culture that happens to be a veil, tat is what they will wear. Ony those who feel strongly motivated to rebel against the acceptable accessory will try to make a change. If the girl in the picture was placed in an environment where there were no potential mates, no doubt she would not simply opt to wear a veil (or burka) for comfort. It is all about the mating ritual.

In the 'western' culture, women wear high heeled shoes. These again are a mating technique. In fact, wearing high heels can damage the feet and cause long term pain and deformity. So technically, high heels are worse as there is a really negative health implication. It is true that women these days have the choice not to wear them, but if you look back a few short years, women who refused to conform were often labelled adversely (lesbian, frump, etc).

Coming back to the veil issue, until the potential mates for these women elect to prefer an absence of the covering, then the women will choose to wear what they believe their men wish to see. Sure, I find it tragic that this is how it is, but I don't think we will eliminate the veil until we eliminate the preference for it amongst the potential mates.

Thanks Reg, a fine example of nude whores being liberated by Islam.

How can anyone tell if it's a woman under those outfits? Could be a cross-dresser ir some kind of tranny.

Unseen,

Apparently it's not unheard of for some married woman's extra-marital lover to put on a burqua to visit her.  No one could know that it's not a woman visiting, it's literally great cover.

Great cover... you're terrible.

Yes, Nessrrinn uploaded that one a while ago. Where is she anyway?

She is over at CEMB, the Ex Muslim forum.

I can certainly see Korsan's point of view on this. Growing up in that environment and having family members who think that way is beyond ridiculous. To some of these women wearing a "t-shirt" with skin showing of the arms is nudity. A lot of you are Ex Christians and don't have that much contact with Islamic world, so its understandable with the confusion. When we in the West think of nudity we think of actual "nudity", completely bare or as some would like to call it  "birthday suit" hahaha. To many Islamic women, especially the hardcore indoctrinated ones, nudity means showing even a fraction of skin. These types of thinking are infallible and irrational. These type of behaviors of brainwashing for Muslims start at a young age. You will see 4 year old girls with a veil on. They don't know anything better other than what their parents have taught them. That type of behavior is child abuse. What if the child didn't want to wear the veil? The parents will MAKE her wear it because this is the "will of Allah" and that is how its supposed to be whether the kid likes or not. Then these children grow up to be women, just like that particular woman, and think that everyone else is wrong and evil, and she is right and "modest". The fact that she puts the hash tag "#Muslimah Pride" is just showing that she thinks she is better than girls who don't wear a veil.

These type of behaviors piss me off too. As I really don't think any woman needs to wear a veil cloth over their head to be "modest'. If a woman wore some flip flops, a t-shirt, and jeans, I would say she is dressed modestly. We humans are all beautiful. I don't think anyone of us, men or women, need to hide our beauty for any reason. If we needed too, then evolution would have done that for us long time ago.
