I don't understand the point of banning the veils. Yes, I can see taking them off or lifting them in order to be able to go certain places (like banks), and here certainly you would be expected to take that thing off your face before you went into the bank or a convenience store just like you'd have to take off a ski mask or take down a hoodie hood. However, the idea of banning them on the street just smells like fascism to me. Obviously the ban isn't going to do away with the cultural and religious mores that make the women have to cover their faces...it just means that now they can't go anywhere. Way to liberate them from "slavery" guys.

I wonder if the women would feel liberated by not being allowed by law to were the veil. To me it seems more of a smack in the face to their oppressors.
Around conservatives I sound like a liberal, and around liberals I sound like a conservative.

on the one hand, i do think people should be able to dress as they please.
on the other, a masked face goes against the societal grain. our faces are the first point of call when trying to gauge someone's intentions or mood.

Wearing the veil in a non-Muslim country is in many cases an act of rebellion against the country rather than an act of obedience to the "oppressive" men.
