For 'thesocialdoc' I have no idea why you are against Burka. . .
This is for you. . .
The Advantages of Burkas
Wearing a burka can command more seriousness, respect and authority. My friend’s wife always wears one when attending important meetings, such as parents’ evenings or when meeting her landlord. In their culture, wearing a burka in a meeting will gain better results and more respect, than donning normal western dress. I guess similar to the way male city workers all have to wear suit and ties, even though ties have been show to hinder blood flow to the brain.
Historically, the burka style of dress originated in desert tribes, where it functioned as a sand mask. Also, the style of dress was worn by both men and women, making them hard to tell apart. This was useful during tribal raids, as it made it harder for raiders to take women of child bearing age. While raids are not really a part of modern life, wearing a mask is useful in many situations. Many people dislike the smell of the London Underground, so a burka could help mask the smell from their delicate nostrils. In a similar way, a burka could help mask the smell of unhygienic fellow passengers.
Non muslims can wear burkas to experience a different culture. A white Finnish reporter decided to done a full black abaya dress complete with veil, in order to experience a day in the life of a burka wearer. She received a lot more respect from Muslims, with many strangers greeting her in the street. It also helped her to feel more at peace, and the cosmetologists and hair stylists who usually harassed her with sales pitches ignored her.
Burka’s are very easy to don, and are often worn as an alternative to the headscarf (hijab). Therefore, Muslim ladies will sometimes wear them when they are in a rush.
Burka wearers in warmer climates can drive cars with the windows down. Some even wear them while driving convertibles.
There is no need to worry about bad hair days, and Burka wearers can therefore go out when it’s windy without worrying about getting hair in their face.
Insects, dirt, leaves, sand etc… do not get blown into the wearers’ hair. This is of obvious benefit to those living in windy hot places. And of even greater benefit to fathers who do not wish to spend too much time washing their children.
Young girls can run around in them and still look smart, without needing to adjust their hair bands every five minutes. This is also an advantage for parents, who do not wish their unruly children to bring disrepute upon the family through their messiness. I remember that as a child my mother used to say that I represented the Patel family when I left the house, and that if I looked untidy then it would reflect badly upon her as a mother.

Freedom of thought
(also called the freedom of conscience or ideas) is the freedom of an individual to hold or consider a fact, viewpoint, or thought, independent of others' viewpoints.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH
Freedom of speech is the freedom to speak freely without censorship or limitation, or both. The synonymous term freedom of expression is sometimes used to indicate not only freedom of verbal speech but any act of seeking, receiving and imparting information or ideas, regardless of the medium used. In practice, the right to freedom of speech is not absolute in any country and the right is commonly subject to limitations, such as on "hate speech".
The right to freedom of speech is recognized as a human right under Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). The ICCPR recognizes the right to freedom of speech as "the right to hold opinions without interference. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression."
try my best to piss people off when they are dead serious
@topic: Let women wear what they wanna wear...!!! It's their choice!!! If u do wanna discuss their attire...then, innerwear is a far more interesting topic
I neither endorse nor object the Burqa...! and about the doc n lisbonstar...yes it was their opinion...but in a free forum...it's not only about expressing your own opinion but to be sensitive about others'. If the tagline hurt other members...they should have considered...but banning them was still pretty harsh!!!
I Don't Exactly Hate you!
However, if you were on fire, and I had water,
I'd drink it!
