Culture is not something we should respect. Culture is patriarchy, it has always been men’s society. Stop being afraid to criticize burquas because mostly women of colour wear them. They are sexist. This is gender in some parts of the world. They are just as degrading, uncomfortable and othering as our pornified gear here. I don’t want to hear about how your headgear “empowers” you any more than I wanna hear about how cocksucking and stiletto wearing “empowers” a western woman. JFK, grow a spine.
