    Norton, please! The Pinterest platform is primarily-based upon the imaginary art forms, known as surrealism. Nice try though. Cheerio!

    Hijab or Dupatta are the only acceptable attire to wear for hassle-free clearance, to enter Denmark, at any Port of Entry, anymore. I totally agree with that regulatory standard.

    The exhibition was composed of ‘portraits’ of women wearing the little-known garment mysteriously called ‘Strude’, the existence of which most Danes ignored. This face-mask used to be worn in the past by women living on a small Danish island to protect their faces against the elements.

    Again, mixing apples, w/ oranges, eh? I know what the Strude facial attire is used for. The Strude was also used by Danish menfolk, and was standard attire, used by the (Longship-sailing) Viking warriors of the past.

    Two totally different intentions, applied by a similar styles. Thus, considering the context of the current topic thread, where could there possibly be a comparison-base, all things being intelligently considered? Sigh!

    I wonder if that's not the real origins of head coverings/face veils in all forms. Then later the patriarchal Abrahamic religions turned it into a religious thing.

    Of course, that's what happened.

    Covering the nose and cheekbones with a metal strip too.

    This is a massive retrograde step for Denmark in my opinion.

    During my visits to the ME I have watched local women covered head to foot when arriving at a restaurant, sit at a table, a waiter bringing a "curtain" to allow them to sit "naked" from the neck up. They seemed to be happy with the "rules".

    The "curtain" hid the ladies from their immediate left but from front , back and right, everyone in the restaurant, who could be bothered, could watch every mouthful and her swallowing every morsel down, her long, long, long, throat.

    I had been there a month or so.

    I suspect one of their "rules" is freedom of choice as to what religion and customs they obey.

    That's a reasonable compromise. Yet in Muslim majority countries such as Malaysia there are some Malay women who choose to wear the niqab and it seems they are not banned from banks, shopping centres, or airports, bus and rail stations. There doesn't seem to have been that many incidents as a result.

    Because common sense prevails.

    Or security simply bars entry.

    This is completely different from dictating how people should dress in public, anyway.

    No, fuck that.

    That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it. What next? Ban skirts above the knees.
    Norton, you're just splitting-hairs at this point, and have totally gone-off , on some "foot-stomping" tangent, sir.

    FYI ~ Muslim societies will not reciprocate, and accommodate a very basic western nuance like "It's_Miller_Time", for example,

    even when the westerners has put their own lives on the line, to defend a Muslim country against a next door country's invasion force, i.e.- Kuwait, 1991.

    Norton I have worked with Africa/ ME Muslim womenfolk as colleagues. Perhaps, if you ever have the same opportunity to become so acquainted,

    then, no doubt, you would definitely understand the Danish point of view, much better than you currently do. Cheers, and have a pleasant evening, sir.

    If you get to know them they will take you back to their desert palace for a spot of hawking and let you taste the local delicacies.

    Opinion piece ...

    Group-think produces suboptimal outcomes

    Stigmatising Muslim women — who are likely already burdened by discrimination — will only be counterproductive.
    It is likely to push Muslim women out of vocations they are most likely to pursue — stymieing their career choices and reinforcing disempowerment.

    A woman who has to choose between going to work or wearing her burka might choose the latter. Or worse, have that choice made for her by others.
    The ban also deprives women of financial independence and confidence — both are essential for empowerment.

    Finally, prejudice and exclusion on spurious claims about "values", neutrality, and assimilation deprive societies of the benefits from incorporating the full range of talent within it.

    Research shows that group-think and homogeneity produce suboptimal outcomes compared to decisions that incorporate diversity.
    Why not seek to promote Danish values through education and other means rather than through criminalisation?

    If women are incentivised to voluntarily shed the burka and engage actively in the public domain, European societies will benefit from their talents.
    That's surely better than pushing them underground.

    One would have hoped that by now the ABC and Dr Sandeep Gopalan actually knew the difference between the burka and other forms of face veil.

    None of these dresses are suitable for living in a western country like Denmark, they do not help integration but separateness and difference. To be in favour of letting oppressed bullied women wear what their husbands and imams want is like being in favour of slaves wearing chains. If they want to dress like this they should go back to the shite holes they ran away from.
