Royston BS: 'Some rape victims should take blame'- ?? (839* d) RE: BS: Some rape victims should take blame 16 Feb 10


MtheGM, there is only one place on earth where women are compelled to cover as you describe, and that is Sordid Arabia. Population affected: about 21m (men and women) So that's a fringe activity. They are not compelled by law to wear the Burkha, but I would accept that the cultural compulsion is difficult for most to resist.

Lizzie was actually damning all Muslims for their beliefs about modesty (beliefs that apply in large part to male dress and appearance), and here we find her arguing the opposing view.

It needs to be pointed out 'cos any minute now she will start saying that we are terribly unfair for not taking seriously anything she says. There are good reasons for our incredulity.
