Why do you even come over here if that's your attitude towards western women? Why are you here? You come over to a progressive nation with regressive practices and complain if it's not 100% accepted. A tolerant society shouldn't have to accept intolerant ideas such as the hajib. Many here in the west don't realize this yet or are too scared to say anything because of political correctness, but at least some of us realize that there is a limit to tolerance. You should have more respect for the values and norms in your new country. Let's not forget that If a westerner went to your country and stepped out of line even just a little bit, he or she would probably be shot. If you don't like it here, there's the door.
