Nefarious cross-dressing

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too

Submitted by Marci (United States), Aug 2, 2007 at 11:03

Mr. Pipes unwittingly describes the REAL reason why Muslim clerics mandate the burqas and niqabs. It has nothing to do with modesty or even Islamic principles. The sole reason is to provide a transvestite-friendly costume to disquise males and aid in their surrepticious flight. Please notice Osama Bin Laden's eyebrows: they are plucked (or with his money, probably waxed) in a feminine syle. This is a dead giveaway that he uses burqas and niqabs to disquise his identity, as eyebrows are almost the only way pursuers can tentatively identify men disquised as women in these outfits. A male with plucked eyebrows, a little bit of kohl and some mascara can easily walk around undetected. Good news for true cross-dressers and those bent on mayhem alike!
