I admit I have issues with headscarves. The feminist in me believes they are a form of oppression and that men should wear some sort of blindfold, instead, if they can't handle the sight of a woman's hair and neck. I believe in taking personal responsibility rather than compelling an entire gender to protect you from yourself. But I defend a woman's right to wear it even though I have my own ideas about it. And I defend religious freedom even though I have reservations about religion.
Lately I've been thinking we should all start wearing headscarves in solidarity, in protest. Because I CAN'T STAND what I'm hearing these days. Let's all be Muslim until this stupidity burns itself out.
