HAH! Look at you, suddenly disproving of a comparison. Imagine that.
Why does that bother you? It's non-biased comparison. One religion and its garb being compared to another religion and it's garb. Why does that get under your skin?
Burqas go hand in hand with their religion and a Habit and Cassock go hand in hand with Catholicism - so on and so forth.
Ask yourself - WHY do nuns WEAR a habit? What does it mean?
They wear it because its Canon Law - required by the church (which is fully formed, operated and controlled by MEN, btw, seeing as how you're all in support for women's rights and anti-subjugation all of a sudden) - and, just as with various Islamic faiths, the required garb varies depending on what era you're considering and what region/culture surrounds someone.
So - why don't you scream out "subjugation!!" on their behalf?
AH! because major difference is that the nun makes the CHOICE to join a nunnery and dedicate herself to God as well as wearing her habit - it's a CHOICE. So - if she CHOOSES to wear it then it's not so offensive, yes?
So, once again - you should be supporting a woman's right to CHOOSE = burqa or no burqa, niqab or no niqab rather than robbing innocent women of a right to their garb that they just *might want to wear* because of what some other people have done or because of what YOU think is right for THEM.
You're full of snot - claiming to be for woman's rights and then turning around and declaring their right to choose to be null and void - and that you, being superior in some way, will choose for them instead.
