Freeing The Women

In France, President Nicolas Sarkozy is thinking of banning the burqa in France because it oppresses women.

Hmm.

So it is BAD BAD BAD to allow women to wear this, even if they want to...


But there is nothing at all wrong or weird with women feeling like they have to wear these.



And thus, Nicolas Sarkozy is going to come to the defense of women by refusing them any CHOICE in the matter.

Interesting question. Which of the following women is more free than the other?



This one?


Or this one?


It's not such an easy question.

Well....I'm glad I have the freedom not to wear any of these getups.

I do know that if women had to wear the burqa around here this time of year, they would never leave the house.

Women should have the right to wear what they wish, within reason. Don't dictate my attire unless it's obscene.

We're talking France here, tho'. It's a silly ban.

Loved it! Particularly the comparison to those shoes.
