    I'm not sure what I think, I'm very supportive of tolerance and multi-culturalism and love diversity but I can't help seeing it as a symbol of male oppression...why is it respectable for men to show their hair and faces?

    I particularly want to hear to the views of people who where any sort of covering for religious reasons

    What's the best type of cheese?
