A Woman's Right To Choose.

Well, maybe here in Australia.

Not so sure about Afghanistan.

Or Iran.

Okay, I'm still not up on all this embedding technology, but if you double click on the above thingo, you'll get taken to the liveleak article with a couple of lovely pics. Also, Publius Pundit has been covering the freedom of women in Iran to dress as they please here, here, and here.

Freedom in religion. Yeah, right, whatever you say.

Bloody Hell!

I notice the second vid isn't available.

I saw the first vid at the weekend, what a bastard.Comments on LiveLeak suggest the man (he's not really a real man) is calling her a prostitute, don't know if that's true or if it is name-calling.
Yeah, Lyl, the second vid isn't working for me either.

Okay, even if she is a prostitute, she doesn't deserve that.And watching her 'burka-up' is really sad. I hope that reads PC well, even though I'm not PC :)

The second one's not a vid.

As for whether the woman in the first link is a prostitute or not, I've always had the impression that any woman who doesn't toe the line is considered a whore.

You know, like I'm a infidel whore just because I'm not dressed "appropriately" or don't believe in allah or eating halal foods.

A woman who doesn't toe the line is definately not considered a whore in my world Nilk, and really, almost all the males I know wouldn't even think that way.It'd be a sad indictment on our society if that were true, but seriously, NO real man I've talked to thinks that way.
The jihadi's, on the other hand, may think that way (sad bastards that they are, lol)

Tim, they do. I've not got the links to hand, since I had a glitch that wiped out several hundred bookmarks (grrr), but there is a group of women in France, for example who protest against being called whores for not wearing hijab.

On our fave MuslimVillage board, there is a thread discussing the situation over in islamically inclined countries and how women seem to have greater rates of sexual harrassment and abuse. Particularly if not properly bagged.

On the thread I have in mind, there were a few first-hand accounts by women here visiting there who felt obliged to wear coverings just to dissuade the gropers and oglers.

Mind you, nobody there seemed to connect their harrassment to the quranically justified idea of women being less than men, but that wasn't a surprise.

Well, it was at first.

Ah, I didn't realise you were referring to their society. I was referring to our society when I made my comments. Is Muslim Village okay to checkout? Not sure if it's a bad site, lol.

It's bizarre. It's like reading through frosted glass.

I hope that makes sense.

It makes sense but I'm still not if I want to check it out>

About losing hundreds of bookmarks, gee, that would have been hard, I'd hate that to happen to me. I treasure mine :) , seriously.
