  1. “Your all individuals.”

    “I’m not.”

  2. 1happyheathen says:

    just think of all that could be hidden from view by the burka.. if Mexicans were wearing them across our southern border the righties would be screaming that it is nothing but an above ground “drug and weapons tunnel” and would come to quickly understand both sides of the term “separation of church and state”

  3. Federico R. Bär says:

    Burkas can have some advantage over (semi)nudity. The only visible physical parts underneath are the eyes. If these are beautifully brilliant enough, they turn me on. Why not; my imagination has offered me any variety I may wish. .-

  4. Sanity is not statistical says:

    My modesty is the best modesty. Is Mo running for President?

  5. Apparently Playboy’s model is wearing a hijab. I remind my mates here that a hijab is not a burka, though the modesty argument for its use is the same bullshit, only served in smaller bowls. I have no objection to the hijab. Well, no more than I object to a Catholic wearing a crucifix, that repulsive symbol of shame, torture, and blood sacrifice.
    I do appreciate the irony that our Author points out. This woman is so modest that she wants to be displayed and become famous. Right.

  6. Matt says:

    I object to any garb that is supposed to demonstrate female modesty, in the same way that I object to Kim Celebrity getting her tits out for the sake of a front page. It is NOT about female empowerment, it is about putting women ‘in their place’. Any Muslim woman that chooses to (as opposed to the majority who are obliged to) wear a head scarf or bin bag is no different to one of the Kardashians. Not worth a shit. Oops, did I get carried away?

  7. I have plenty of objection to the hijab. In Iran there are religious police who can arrest women for not wearing it “correctly” enough. Not wearing it at all is not an option. It’s not comparable to wearing a cross.

  8. FreeFox says:

    Why don’t you wear one then, Federico? ^_^

  9. Innocent Bystander says:

    I remember a girl I saw in a market in Morocco a few years back. She was fully covered apart from her eyes, and I’ll never forget those eyes. They were exquisite, hungry and fathomless and when she looked at me I sort of melted inside – an event far more memorable and erotic than encounters with any number of semi- or un-clad images that I encounter on the internet.

  10. plainsuch says:

    Obviously, women also need to wear dark glasses so their eyes don’t arouse men’s uncontrollable lust.

  11. plainsuch says:

    Mo: I forgot to wear any pants.

  12. Wrinkly Dick says:

    Burkhas make me horny.

  13. pink squirrel says:

    Is that wearing one or seeing one? Wrinkly Dick
    and if seeing, are you referring to the garment or the wearer

  14. Wrinkly Dick says:

    The imagination runs riot when confronted with the mysterious apparel, full of eastern promise

  15. plainsuch says:

    You must be really frustrated. Is your imagination of such importance that half the population needs to suffocate inside potato sacks all summer?

  16. diducthat says:

    I recall (probably badly) an episode of ‘Outnumbered’ on the Dave channel (BBC -originally, I suspect. It’s a semi-improvised show about a family),where young Karen asks her mum “why is that woman dressed like like that?” Her mother (played by Claire Skinner) says it’s because she’s modest and doesn’t want to attract attention to herself.
    Little Karen then replies: “so why is she dressed in stupid clothes then?”

    From the mouth of babes…

  17. Grumpy says:

    Modesty blaze….

  18. WalterWalcarpit says:

    DarwinHarmless, When this first came out I thought it would be a great opportunity for you to plug a link to that excellent piece on your blog about a migrant to Canada insisting on her right to cover herself up.
    If you see this, please do: I would love to read it again.

  19. Friendly Extremist says:

    Oh, the “liberating” argument!! I was wondering if you had made a specific strip about it.

    It’s the worst argument for wearing burka/hijab I’ve heard so far. It uselessly tries to make a blatant attack on women’s rights look like a push for the liberation of women… well, not so uselessly, since many people actually buy it, unfortunately.
