People get so caught up in their judgements about the veil they forget it’s being used to deny asylum to refugees, discriminate against & threaten Muslim women, & justify bombing & occupation.

It’s a women’s & human rights matter when governments impose it. But that substantive issue isn’t addressed with such fervor as the theology, comfort, & judgmental stuff about the veil.

When all is said & done, women who wear veils don’t give a rat’s ass what the rest of us think. We should pay more attention to their indifference than we do to their attire.
