No one oggles strict Muslim women for one of two reasons: 1) they are covered head to toe, 2) they're not allowed outside.

1) they are covered head to toe

I propose an addendum to rule 34: If it exists, there is a fetish about it.

2) they're not allowed outside.

I thought they were, but only with a suitable male escort.

On another note, how many of these are cultural things? or to put it another way, how many of these are actually found and endorsed in the quran and other muslim texts (hadiths?)?

It is pure religion. Lebanese eat the same food and speak the same language but half are Christian and half are Muslim. Try and guess from which religion a woman with a high profile job is...and which one is seriously held back if not bundled up in cloth?

Same goes for India where women from the Muslim minority face for barriers (within their community) and more suffering as opposed to Hindus.

Moving onto Sri Lanka where the bhuddist community supports woman's independence in traveling, working and spending. The Tamil Muslim community is less severe than in Pakistan...but they are notably held back.

In Egypt and Jordan...Muslim families often butcher their daughters clitoris or full out chop off their vaginas and sew up the bloody hole left. Christian Egyptians (Coptic's) and Jordanian Christians (not so many left) in general do not.

Indonesia, the Gambia, The Philippines, Senegal, Kazakhstan, CAF, Armenia/Azerbaijan, Albania, Malaysia and so on and so on and so on.

Its not culture...its religion. If Muslims from different cultures all tend to hold women back compared with their countrymen of other faiths...then there are no excuses left.

Turkey, Uzbekistan, Albania are exceptions...and note that they are amongst the most secular of Muslim communities. The fact that they are culturally Turkish and Albanian doesn't mean anything. Its that they held back severe Muslim traditions and benefited greatly from it.

Religion...not culture.
