  1. As a (male) feminist, I hate the burqa too.

    But by banning them, are we really “releas(ing) (women) from the shackles”?

    Aren’t we just giving the men an excuse to keep their wives locked up at home – further limiting women’s freedom?

    If I were Prime Minister, I wouldn’t ban the burqa. But I’d imprison any man who forces a woman to wear one.

    PS. The description in this Facebook group sums up my thoughts:

    • You make a good point. But I wonder whether it’s harder to keep a women locked indoors than it is to force her to wear a burqa. I don’t know that banning it will solve the problem. I only know that accepting it won’t.
