On one side, we have colourful examples of cultural diversity, on the other we have the misogynic islamic view.

What can those beautiful women change? NOTHING!!!

Highly exaggerated post Angela as they aren't worn everywhere in those countries. I have had friends that have just returned from many of these places and the pictures they took showed nobody wearing that stuff. Indeed in India which is mostly Hindu etc they still wear the saris and the same goes for Indonesia etc. If you look at photos taken from most of these places you will find similar dress worn by women or even western dress. A lot of Muslims wear different headgear these days and only in extreem terrorist controlled areas will you find the complete covering worn by the majorities. Even Iran has relaxed it's dress laws according to travellers who have been there in the past year or so. You must also remember that many of those dresses were worn for special occasions and not for everyday wear as they would get ruined doing housework cooking etc etc. Even the men wear different clothes for everyday and have special clothes for special occasions... Just like we do....

As an outside observer here, and a man, I can't help noticing Inkling doesn't miss any opportunity to go against Angela (This is the second time in 2 days, and the Nth time in the past few months.)

In this particular case, Inkling (deliberately or not) misunderstands what to me is Angela's intent: to show how pretty traditional garb for Muslim women can be. She never says anywhere that it's everyday dress. What she says is "traditional" or "typical". Not "common" or "working garb" or "everyday". With the jewelry and all, it's obviously for festive occasions. Which nowadays Muslim women can't wear even at celebrations like weddings or the like. Which is a pity because they're really beautiful and I for one enjoyed them a lot more than I enjoy looking at women in burqa or niqab or whatever you call them.

Inkling, if you could be a bit less antagonistic and patronizing/lecturing/know-it-all better than anyone else, especially our conservative members, to people who disagree with you? I would count it a favor to us all. Smile

Angela, thank you for posting those photos! ten

Of course they didn't. Your friends weren't invited to weddings or other celebrations where women would wear these outfits. Or were they? If they were, what were the women wearing?

Do you need a dictionary to look up the word "traditional"? As opposed to "everyday wear" or "working outfits"? Rolling Eyes

I'm with Angela and Doan_Du on this. You're way off base, Inkling.

Angela, those pictures are beautiful. Thanks for reminding us that once Muslim women weren't all shrouded up in all-covering black (or if they're lucky) blue garments. Even Mohamed's wives are depicted without burqas.

This is Aisha, Mohamed's favourite wife. Headdress is similar to one of the pictures above.

The Jewel of Medina

This one is too large to post here: https://yt3.ggpht.com/7m_ERd_hK2or_dVGcMfpMNdBgAYRPg58r3zEzJD19F-TG4WtVmlOULsF8yt---cmV6BdMWnYP0SWDNY3YA4=s900-nd-c-c0xffffffff-rj-k-no

This can hardly be called a burqa, can it? wink

I beg to differ. In France - which you will admit is not a "extreme (or "extreem" as you spell it, LOL) terrorist controlled area", didn't you see the pictures taken in front of the social security benefits paying offices?

Or these:

Thank you, Doan_Du and TT! Very Happy

As to you, Inkling, and your statement that "only in extreem [sic] terrorist controlled areas will you find the complete covering worn by the majorities". You should maybe open your eyes. Take your head out of your Australian sand.

This photo was taken in front of the Social Assistance office in Rosny-sous-Bois, in the suburbs of Paris. I posted it some six or seven weeks ago. Those women are queuing to get their social benefits paid by the French Social Security.

What planet do you live on, Inkling? Is Australia so isolated from the rest of the world, and don't you even look at the pictures posted here on AV? Rolling Eyes

Thank you, Inkling and others. I had not realized that the center of Paris (and London) were now "extreme terrorist controlled areas". Eek

But I had a look and found these pictures:





London, too, in fact!!



You're so right Inkling. Only in terrorist-controlled areas do we see burqas. Including Paris and London, those well-known terorist nests. Donald Trump would be proud of you, pointing that out to us. Now he can ban all French and British people from entering the US. Thanks to your pointing that obvious fact out. Who'd have thunk, Inkling7 and Donald Trump agreeing on something? super grin
