No, because it's almost Halloween and I want to be able to walk around with a pumpkin hat.

no.

I am personally against very over the top religious dress. No problem with headscarves are fine by me, but full coverings seem awful. I also don't buy at all that its empowering or not-coerced.

But..

I am not immature enough to want to ban things that I don't personally like. And living in a society that is in anyway multicultural, means that we need to have religious tolerance. As long as it doesn't cross our laws then let religions do their thing. Making new laws specifically caused by, and targeting religion though? Isn't needed.

As long as they comply to security measures, airports etc. then let them do what they want.

No, don't think so. People that say it should be banned on security basis are just wrong; there are so many alternatives that will stay legal for criminals that have less use than the burqa

Shouldn't people have the freedom to what what they want?

What if someone wanted to dress up as a Nazi or KKK member ?

what if someone wanted to wear nothing/ something barely covering anything?

The Nazi thing is weird. We used to have great larks in this country playing carry-on Nazis: 'Allo 'Allo, "Don't mention ze war" in Fawlty Towers... you'll hardly find a long-running sketch comedy series where someone hasn't dressed up as a Nazi at some point. Even the brother of the future king went to a party in a Nazi uniform.

Despite the pearl-clutching, Nazis can be quite funny. They were silly, and we should mock them as being silly, with their ridiculous pomposity and Oooh-Look-At-Me goosestepping.

That does not take anything away from solemn commemoration of the horrific things that Hitler's Reich did. We can look at different facets of one thing and think about them in different ways.

Our laws already recognise the distinction between dressing in a threatening or offensive way and doing it for perfectly innocent purposes. If you were to dress up as a Nazi and burst in to a synagogue shouting abuse, you'd rightly get arrested for it.

No of course not. It's none of my business what other people want to wear, religious or not, as long as it's not hurting other people

If I desire to walk on this planet with as much skin exposed as possible, I will.

At the same time, if I wish to walk this planet covered from head to toe, I will.

Who is anyone else to dictate what I can/ can't put over my skin?

Finally, if I want to walk this planet wearing a god-damn hotdog costume, or heck, even a bin bag, then believe me; I. ****ing. Will.

Because at the end of the day, it's my choice, my freedom, my right, to dress how I want, in the Land of Freedom. MY prerogative.

So, in answer to your question, nope, I do not support the burka ban. Nor do I support the bikini ban, hot-dog costume ban, or binbag ban.

But you're not allowed to walk around with all your skin exposed...

No. What gives someone else the right to dictate what you can or can't wear?

...which is why I said 'with as much skin exposed possible'.

The key word, is possible. As much skin possible. Legally possible, (if you must.)

So in other words, you're happy with someone dictating what you are allowed to wear and all that stuff about freedom was nonsense.

No. Banning the burka is pretty discriminatory on it's own.

A facial covering ban would not only make much more sense, but would be virtually impossible to argue as discriminatory, because it wouldn't be discriminatory at all.

Of course, the ban wouldn't be everywhere... Just places where it'd make sense.
