I have missed you, Ms. V. Smile Hope all is well with you.

Did you know I had 2 Muslim twin lads straight from Riyhad living in my house for almost 3 years. I was their Mamma while they were studying here. They came with 2 words of English. "Yes..No.. and Thank You."
Their (many) pals came over here with them to study, and my house was often full.
We had a blast together, and even though they've flown the nest, they still come to visit.


Great? Come talk to me when that anecdote is relevant. I'm pretty sure the boys weren't wearing headscarves or niqabs so that doesn't prove as a counterpoint. You still haven't explained how your decision to allow the government to dictate what women can and cannot wear in Canada is any different than the governments that dictate what women can and cannot wear in Muslim majority countries (not all, mind you). So - do you wish to say you're better than those countries who impose such harsh rules on women or do you want to say you're just as intolerant?

Your argument doesn't make much sense to me.    I would say if you don't conform to the culture of the country you are in, either permanently or temporarily, you are showing intolerance of that culture.   How can anyone argue against "when in Rome".    

I can easily argue against "when in Rome".  People bring culture to wherever they emigrate and hold steadfast to it.   No one was complaining when Europeans brought their culture to North America, killed millions, and kept their own cultures (except the Native Americans, who were really too dead or enslaved to complain).  Western countries constantly boast about how they're better than those "backwards, dictator-like" countries of the Middle East, but then argue for similar laws to be enacted - just in the opposite direction.

I might sound simplistic.. but when I came to Canada from a different country and slightly different culture, and was accepted by Canada to become a Canadian citizen to enjoy the liberties of healthcare, schooling, and a Canadian passport, it is obvious to me that I would respect the culture of the country I had chosen to live.

I have no issue with different cultures following and celebrating their special observances (hell.. we celebrate Rabbie Burns Day on 25th!) but I find it offensive when our (Christian) culture has to be put aside in case of offending others.

It is ridiculous and a show of weakness from our so-called leaders to bow to this.

I wouldn't walk down a street wearing a strappy t-shirt and short skirt in Riyhad because I know it wouldn't be okay in their culture.. so why is it okay for Muslim women to be covered from top to bottom in our culture?



These arguments never make sense to me.

You argue that you want to be better, ~freer~, than those countries that force you to be clothed a certain way and then go on to say that the government and you should ALSO be able to tell others to be clothed a certain way.

Screams of hypocrisy. Just say it outright - you're intolerant of a culture that you don't agree with.  That makes you no different than the same people who force women to cover themselves, in terms of intolerance.

Just mean to say I doubt anyone here is really as polarizing in real life as they are here.

James/Clydey is like the biggest teddy bear ever in real life and a complete c*ntface on here sometimes.

Would you really want to admit that?

Shrug

Having met people from MW, most of you broads are probably completely different in real life.

I'm just as much of a c*nt in person as I am on here.

Sh*t like this always happened, it just wasn't broadcast through the media before.

I suppose that's a matter of opinion.  Certainly doesn't look bad to me.  no

I never claimed it to be anything but a subjective matter.
