in response to reader comment: You missed my point Rochelle

Why should anyone submit themselves to discrimination... ie.. .a woman who is not "properly" covered, the person who wants to take a cab to a bar or the student who wants to eat a ham sandwich at school.

Cab drivers would monopolize the taxi industry and make it unbearable for all who will not submit if they were permitted to "label" their preferences of whom they will accept and who they will not.

Islamic laws need to reform to this modern world...not the other way around.
