Quoting libralady:



Would we wear short shirts and strappy tops in Saudia Arabia? No we would not, when in Rome do as the Romans do!



Well,i didnt know that ALL the West is the Vatican,is it?!

Beside,Romans are Christians,and we are Muslims,so we cant,and wont do as Romans even when we are in Rome!

Btw,you can wear short shirts and strappy tops,or whatever you want in my country,and beside you there would be women wearing same,and anothers wearing Hijab,even niqab too.

You know LB,you really have brought up a good issue,
You ''many of West'' believe that Saudia Arabian,or Muslims,or people in the third world are not developed enough,not modern enough,dont have open minds...less freedom in thought behaviors...bla bla bla...ect

So would you tell me,what is your problem ''West problem''if i 'Muslim' be in your country,a developed,modern,free...bla bla...ect country
And i do as i want,not as Roman do ?!
İ mean i wear my hijab,and not dressed up like you do
What is your problem in such free,moder,open minded ....countries ?!

from a women point of view I don't care what people wear, but its about equality and freedom of choice
why should women cover up and men dont
in some countries its a mans world

Fat chance of getting any evenhandness on here CANLI. Reminds me of the Ghandi quote when someone asked him about western civilisation and he said it would be quite a good idea.

why should women cover up and men dont,excuse me but its OUR business NOT yours.
Freedom of choice,then it is MY RİGHT that you respect MY freedom of choice when i am in your free,developed...ect country.
İm here talking about the core of it
About the fact that a Muslim woman is in a Western ''modern,developed...ect'' country and she choose to put on hijab
You dont have the right to mock ,laugh or make jokes about it as same as you hate it if they do same with you

Actually at this point you are no good than some countries in the third ,undeveloped,close minded...ect countries,who force their women to put some kind of uniform

As i said here,im talking about those women's right in respecting their choices in so called free lands,i dont talk about why they or we made this choice as i see you are new member,and you havent attend ALL our debats about it of course if you want we can debat about it but not in forums...there are many of them alright
Btw,Welcome to TLC

thank you for your welcome
and I thought as a member of this site I was encouraged to share my views
so you say its none of my buisness but I do have an opinion which is
live and let live to each their own
as long as they have freedom of choice
I respect all cultures and religions
but I can't help but feel a degree of inequality about this topic
and if some Turkish women want to post their opinions which differ to mine then I stand corrected
I dont mean to offend just speaking my mind

I agree with Canli and Cat - everybody should be wearing what they want. I know in Egypt I can wear tops and shorts, but what Islamic countries that don't live off tourism? Will I be free to wear my top and shorts there as well?

In Western countries you're free to wear your burkas and hijabs. We, Western women are not free to do it in yours so where's the justice?

As for what I mind about covering yourself up is when at the border control, covered women try to "protect" their right to stay covered. What about my right to feel safe in my country? How can I know who's trying to get in?
