Try to analyze your claims. You are a feminist, but love the hijab because it covers your body, and hides your weight problem. This claim is a paradox, and demonstrates that you do not truly understand most feminist claims. Also, most feminists hold most religions in contempt because of the condoned female discrimination that fills the Torah, some of the New Testament, Qur'an, Confucianism, Buddhism, and many other faiths.

Also, pure secularism has caused more deaths than any faith. Analyze Chinese, Cuban and Soviet communism. Millions died at the hands of atheists.

Banning faith, or certain ideologies will not work. Creating laws that forbid discrimination and violence in the name of faith or ideology should work.
