    Nay. “You can’t be expressing yourself like that voluntarily, so we’re going to forbid you from doing so” doesn’t work for me. It’s a little “we had to destroy freedom to save it” for my tastes.Report

    We in this country ban bagging/sagging pants in some places or thongs on some beaches so why not let them ban burqas?Report

    Nay with caveats.
    Liscences/ID: Require face photographs. Provide em or do without.
    Public Servants: Have to serve all of the public and being hidden under a textile haystack severely impedes this. Meet your jobplace requirements or find a different job.
    Prehistoric Arabic Men who harass women who don’t wear burquas: We’re not in 200 BC pal. Take your stone age social opression back to your stoneage countries. Anything that goes beyond yelling; throw the book at em. If the book isn’t tough enough; write a heavier book.Report
