Not always. You're assuming that all women who dress modestly do so because they are coerced by men. This is demonstrably false.Lucrece wrote:And you think telling someone to do something or else they'll face eternal torture after death isn't the most malignant method of coercion?
First, you're assuming it's deceptive. Second, you're assuming it's false. Even with these assumptions, why on Earth would you arrest women for wearing a burqa, instead of arresting the men who are coercing them? The government's role is to protect these women, not persecute them, and certainly not forbid them from going outside.
This is like trying to fight domestic violence by outlawing makeup.
Demonstrate it as false. Censorship of female sexual expression has originated from the patriarchy. It wasn't women who relegated themselves to the status of property.
And, yes, I find it deceptive and false. Pure bullshit, with all the sexual liberties Muslim men are allowed by comparison.
But let's get to these assumptions. The women don't need to be arrested. Fines and taking the burqas from those caught wearing burqas is preferable. Make it financially unsustainable. Fuck the men over with inventive penalties and investigations. Who says they can't legislate the wearing of burqas into domestic violence codes?
If they don't like it, they can go back to their own countries, where I'm sure French female tourists don't get to wear their bikinis. A society doesn't need to bend backwards to accommodate the oppressive religious practices of immigrants.
