Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
We demand all people coming to the US to learn English and adopt our way of living. Our cultural norms may not be as obvious as turbans and burka's but we have them and we absolutely demand that people fall in line when in America.
If a freed black person from the North were to have visited a southern plantation in 1850 and was told to play the role of slave by calling white men "master", would they be supporting slavery?
Of course they would.

Are you actually saying that asking someone to wear a hijab is the same thing as ... that? Really?
The oil industry execs knew, I suppose, that it is best to do as "the Romans do" when living in Rome.
how about showing some respect for the decisions made by the female soldiers who are over there. they have chosen to wear Hijab in some circumstances. all you are doing is undermining their decisions. you are not there, they are, and i think they are more qualified than you to decide what they want to do.
it sounds like they are doing an awesome job over there.
I was given the opportunity to attend the first women's shura in two years located in Jaji Maidan on Thursday, Feb. 10. A shura, for those of you who don't know what that is, is simply a formal way for Afghans to get together to solve issues in the community. For the U.S. it would be like a meeting between council members of a town.
It was, quite simply, an amazing mission. For starters, the entire mission was conducted by females. Women Soldiers from the personal security detail, 330th Military Police Company escorted the female Afghan government officials to the town, cleared the building they would be meeting with local women in, and secured the immediate area from threats. The only men on the mission were on the outside securing the rest of the village. To make the females more comfortable we all wore head scarves. It was funny seeing female Soldiers in full battle rattle with brightly colored scarves peeking from under their helmets.
