The reason it doesnt matter

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: Where and why it would matter

Submitted by Edward (South Africa), Jul 14, 2008 at 02:06

See Mr/Mrs Straight_Talk_Luigi, i suspect that you submitted this article with the strong belief that the two reasons why someone's dress matters do make sence. I dont think so. Here is why.

1) Workplace safety. Who said neck ties dont get caught in machines? Anyway, incase you have any idea about employment law, an employer is required to ensure that ALL moving parts of machinery within a working environment are sufficiently fenced off to guarantee no physical contact between workers and machines. Besides, who told you that every covered up muslim woman is going to work at whatever place there are moving parts? Do clothes get caught up in computers, car steering wheels, pens pencils and all? What did you want to mean?

2) Voting. if you must look at someone's thighs and breasts to be able to identify them for voting purposes, i am afraid you ought to be behind bars for life because it does not need telling what your intentions are. But anyway, for a fact, in an age where there are technologies that can identify a headless and legless person by merely a thumbprint, it shocks me that you had the nerve to suggest that you must see someone's body exposed to be able to identify them for voting. Or did you mean something else?
