This one is an oldie but a goodie. A perfect example of moral blindness and outright stupidity so common amongst the apparatchiks in our multicultural establishment. Australia’s Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward said this about Muslim women wearing hijab:
I have to admit that the burqa (hijab) is very confronting — its blackness, the net over the eyes. It’s hard to know how much of it is religious and how much of it is tribal or … cultural.
(But) we wear high heels. We torture our feet. Women all over the world have dress codes that, either willingly or unwillingly, they impose upon themselves that are ugly and distorting and unhealthy and it’s part of the oppression of women all over the world … People are entitled to wear the clothes that they want to wear.
See…. according to Pru, a Muslim woman wearing a hijab because of the cleric’s edict is the same as a Western woman wearing high heels by choice. What elegant logic. Perhaps Pru should explain the concept of choice to Aqsa Parvez murdered by her own father for refusing to wear the hijab or Hina Saleem murdered by her brother for being too Western.
