[1925 vs 2016. 90 years later and we’re still policing women on what they wear to the beach.]
So, in 1925 women had to cover up and perhaps didn’t have a choice there. 2015 we have people trying to control a violent religion that oppresses women and forces them to completely cover themselves. If you think that these are the same thing then youre wrong. These are extreme measures to try to control an ideology incompatible with western values. Incompatible with the ideas that even would have inspired this post to begin with.
Im not sure whether or not I agree with the measures. One one hand I think that it genuinely does deter Islam and on the other I would want people to be able to make the choice. I do not however think that we need to be tolerant of extreme ideas that hurt others.
