As they say on Sesame Street, one of these things is not like the other. I'm wordless today.

Freedom to dress curbed or freedom to dress expressed?

We went to the water park today with my grand daughter and a couple of fully clad Muslim women were there with their children. It always amazes me, I can be completely and modestly dressed with a turban but still feel scantily clad in comparison. I wonder how they withstand the triple digit heat, but maybe here is something to it as their style of dress originates from desert countries.

It's interesting, her eyes suggest a very curious or mischievous expression.

I am speechless but with a tiny touch of envy. When I am having a bad hair day or nothing to wear I could slip that garment on to go shopping. I have a feeling though that under that garment the women are very smartly dressed.

I always wonder how hot it is underneath one of those garments. And I would hate not feeling the wind in my hair!

I must say that I too wonder how they can withstand the heat ....here in the south it is some kinda hot!

The muslim garb is very good for desert weather because of the heat and sand storms etc.. but it is not required in other countries with different weather and better material used in modern clothing.
Too bad they turned it into a religious garb.
In Israel the Orthodox Jews have the women shave their heads and wear wigs. Equally stupid. and they force people to walk around covered, which is fine considering the bad sun rays. but why make it a law?
We are born naked. If God wanted clothes, he would have given us a fur coat at birth.Clothing is a man made idea.

I am religious but if my religion demands us to wear special clothing and forbids other dress, I think I would go to another church. God doesn't tell us what to wear or what not.These are rules invented by men. We have the ten commandments, which are difficult enough.
Great photo , Gattina. It inspires us to discuss this.

Loree said...

I cannot imagine anyone wanting to dress up like that.
