in response to reader comment: Hijab's utility in the western context must be evaluated

That makes sense to me.

Yes, the Islamic coverings for women is a way of taking away responsibility from men and controlling women. In other words, women cover your bodies so I don't get an erection from seeing your hair or worse, your ankles, because I have absolutely no control over my sexual urges. If I do rape you and heaven forbid there were not three male witnesses, then it's all your (women's) fault and you must be punished.

Can't beat that kind of logic. Hahaha!
