The Issue Of Dress For Our Women
Good point, HN. I, too, believe in modesty in attire, however, I'm not as prudish as the Islamists, and sundry puritans.
As closer to truth as the Muslims might be to attire, it is abysmal to live under their thumb. Indeed, these pious-types are the breed that outlaw women from singing. Thus, opera is outlawed in their nations. A nation without a beautiful lyric soprano is empty, and ugly.
There must be a happy medium between modesty, and beauty. Perhaps European clothing styles from a century or so ago are the way to go?
I favor the extreme because it allows for a few liberties with dress , such as face covering to slip through the cracks once in a while, the archaic fashions of the 19th Century may cover arms and hair, but still expose the neck and face. Then again, it would get more and more difficult to even be attracted to woman in the first place if the eye was not given its due.
