France's new law of banning the oppressive, suppressive, patriarchal, uncouth, subordinate, uncivilised, confining, choking burka is a topic of controversial debate etc etc. Our opinions? While we don't agree with the burka/niqab, and see it as a cultural rather than religious dress (tell that to the Islamophobiacs!), who the hell is any government to dictate to people what they should and shouldn't wear? Those who utilize their brains are definitely not fooled by the pathetic excuse given to justify the law: WE MUST LIBERATE THOSE POOR SOULLESS MUSLIM WOMEN who, for God's sake, can't refuse their husbands sex! And they cannot leave their houses without permission! We're a REPUBLIC, dammit, not some Arabian land where fundamentalists enjoy ruling from the top tier! We must EDUCATE these poor women about their RIGHTS! Convert them to Governmental Christianity! As a bonus, we have indoor plumbing and wall to wall carpeting in our residential areas. Lift the cursed fabric from thy faces! Embrace the world! Breathe in the air! Just remember to say No! Defy your patriarchal society! Life is good without the burka!

We give you this video below. It is amazing in its iconoclastic attitude. The two French women have used a marvellously unorthodox way to voice what they think of the French law:

"We were not looking to attack or degrade the image of Muslim fundamentalists – each to their own – but rather to question politicians who voted for this law that we consider clearly unconstitutional," they said. "To dictate what we wear appears to have become the role of the state."
