Stray Thoughts Of A Fugged-Up Brain [Jun. 22nd, 2009|06:34 pm]
Tony Grist
Championship tennis is really good for sleeping through.

I'm glad I cooked a proper dinner- pork steaks, apple sauce, potatoes, baked beans. I couldn't taste it, but the texture was very comforting.

I'm no fan of the burqua, but I don't think democracies should tell women what they should or shouldn't wear.

I believe it is needed to bare women's faces, at least. Who knows what lurks under a burka? It could be a (male) terrorist, or a sex offender, or any kind of criminal who does not want to risk identification. Also, I may sound harsh by saying this, but if women WANT to wear those horrible things, perhaps they should wear them in Afghanistan or some other Muslim country. After all, if I wish to visit certain Muslim countries I would have to conform to their dress codes. A (American) friend of mine who accompanied her husband to Morocco, where it is oppressively hot, had to wear long sleeves, cover every bit of her hair with a large scarf, and wear long skirts and socks with her sandals while she was there. It must have been terribly oppressive for her. Needless to say she would never choose to live in such a place.

The BBC journalist John Simpson did indeed travel round Afghanistan wearing a burqua. I believe it's common practice for men who want to go undercover in those societies to put on feminine dress. It's the perfect- all but unpenetrable- disguise.
