SPECIALITY CLOTHING...

in response to reader comment: unisex clothing

The 'Muslim' custom of specialized clothing is used as a repressive device for non-muslims. In most 'Muslim' occupied areas, Iran, Saudi ,etc, the non muslim is forbidden to wear "Muslim" clothing. While at the same time , all women are required to 'cover' hence an impossible situation where non muslims may be harrassed,arrested,and tormented.

This is the type of tactic used in ' Muslim' majority countries. The custom is a means of ploitical control and repression of women and consequently of the men. This is simply a constant reminder of the state of 'submission' or' obedience to authority'. It is in service to this 'obedience to authority' mythology that animates the pious to seek martyrdom as the ultimate 'submission" and gain access to the deity.

This lethality makes the mythology of the 'Muslim' disordered and requires its marginalization. The internalization produces a pathology of "Muslim Personality Disorder" ,leading to suicidal/homicidal thoughts and ideation, intense hostility to the point of taking of human life as we see too often, resulting in death of muslims and non muslims. Any concession only advances the mythology and carnage.
