Am I going to get yelled at if I wonder if she has been circumsized as many of her belief system reuqire of females?

Sorry, but if it was a white chick with a cross on her neck I would have asked something else as inappropriate.

"A thing or two" like to tolerate backwards misogynistic mind-fucking belief-systems.

I just studied in France for the last six months and I saw girls wearing headscarves in school every day. The law is ignored.

ignored or not, it is still a law in the land of France.

Keep your religion out of my tax funded schools.

Yes, that girl is totally wearing that scarf by choice, and not because her family would frown upon it if she didn't :eyes

This country of religious nut jobs who force their kids to follow along with their religous nutjobery could learn a thing or two from France.

I don't know what you see in that photo, but I see the results of child abuse.

I don't think I'm favorably impressed by the advertising message, "it's okay with us if our customers want to wear a magic blankie on their heads."

I'd hit that.

so france's community colleges should learn to pander to their immigrants' cultural misogyny to keep their enrollment up?

can't we get more hot polish girls to immigrate instead?

Why the hell do all these superstitions have to be celebrated and promoted? Why do all the "step-on-a-crack" crazies have to worm their way into simple, secular life? Stay the fuck outta my life with your crazy, Stockholm-sydrome, female oppressed shit.

It creeps me out to see women wrapped up like gliding mummies or guys with skullcaps rocking back and forth or muslims ass-to-nose praying to a gigantic square in the east or mormons in magic underpants or JWs dragging babies door to door to gain "sympathy entry" to homes for their performance or christians worshiping a dead man in pain on a cross or scientologists forcing their cult members to sign billion-year agreements to join their SeaOrg. All because of shit our ancestors made up.

It's ALL made-up shit, people, and the world is NOT a better place with you in it, mucking it all up with your superstitions, your genital mutilations, your fatwahs, your crusades, your free stress tests, your gideon bibles, your original sin, your rebirths.

So fuck all y'all. Wake up and realize you're not marionettes guided by an invisbile hand. Take responsibility for your actions and their consequences, and don't blame/thank an invisible monster for everything that happens in your life.

Of course I'll get slammed for my anti-god views, but that's okay. You call it religious oppression, I call it self preservation. That's kind of what keeps you all afraid AND tithing, isn't it? That if someone speaks out, they get punished by the mighty one? You're all cult followers and it scares the shit outta me.

And don't take CSC 118 at BCC because it's really hard to get above a B.

Umm... Actually, I think we could learn something from France.

Posted by Richard | December 28, 2007 3:25 PM

BCC FTW! All the Muslim girls there, whether they wear scarves or not, are really hot. And smart.

Posted by Jessica | December 28, 2007 6:21 PM

The French could learn something from Muslims.. Uh, to repress sexuality and become a nation of hysterical prudes where the women shreik about how modest they are all the time? If the french need to start repressing anyone it is the groups who claim they are victims of racism when someone calls them violent thugs for acting like violent thugs.

Why werent those dancing Ethiopian girls wearing their headscarves?

Obviously Ethiopia could learn something from Bellevue Community College too, eh?

Yes France needs to learn to value diversity... and they should learn it from the Muslim, African and Arab world where Christian converts, gays, and women who are raped are executed. Arabs would be great people to teach tolerence since they are so willing to tolerate their people comitting genocide in the Sudan and the genocide and "Arabization" that occured under Hussein in Iraq. While Muslims in general are so tolerant to any injustice Muslims inflict on non Muslims. And religous and ethnic minorities are protected, at least that is what the majority says. And if you disagree with them... well.... we all know what happens...........

Charles, you need to learn that cosmopolitanism grows out of the barrel of a gun, not underneath a hijbab. Vive La France!
