They look pretty???

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: They look feminine and pretty

Maybe when you're forced to wear it by your husband and country and you're stoned in the street if you take it off you won't find them so pretty.
It's a sign of OPPRESSION. Those pretty ladies started off wearing a pretty scarf.... NOW they're being forced to wear all black with ONLY slits for them to see out. I wonder how pretty you find those black burkas. Today it was 98 degrees. tomorrow i suggest you wear a scarf all day long and see how pretty it feels.

What is America coming to? When our own women support oppression in the world. If this chick below me is a registered voter (we know shes a demoncrat) God help us all.

Submitting....
