    i think yamulkes are stupid. I think pentecostal pre-teens running around in long skirts and hair down to their ass is stupid. and I think hijabs are stupid.

    what's more, I think this is stupid:



    where can I go to have these things banned?

    LMFAO

    Just as an aside because it reminded me.... When I was doing my 15 minute tread/float for my divemaster cert, I was just laying on the water fully relaxed. The other (male) divemaster candidate had to tread and tread the whole time because he couldn't float. He asked me like halfway through, "How in the HELL do you float like that??"

    I told him I had two flotation devices attached to my chest.

    Oh whilst France is at it can heels, tight jeans, make up, any form of sexualisation of women also be banned?

    I think it oppresses women by forcing them to conform to society and men's ogling .... thats right, i said it.

    But what? We both know that in many cases, they are obliged to wear these things. So
    - if there is no ban, those who are forced to wear burqas, burkinis...keep on wearing them, which is a bad thing
    - if there is a ban, those who were forced to wear them are "free", which is a good thing, but those who had freely chosen to wear them are "humiliated", which is a bad thing
    Here's my philosophy: When in doubt, do nothing. Sometimes, doing something only makes it worse.

    I only wish governments operated like that.
