Frenchies approve thongs but ban the Islamic veil


France is the first country in Europe to publicly ban a form of dress some Muslims regard as a religious duty.

Oh, the stupid French have done it again. Well, i’ve said quite a bit about it in the past when they first banned its use in universities (links below).

I really don't understand a people who'd prefer their mothers and sisters don the immodesty of whores instead of the modesty of women.
The same thing applies in the case of the Confucian state of singapore whose chinese racial supremacist government banned the Hijab in schools, citing the need for conformity and unity, but, on the other hand, celebrates and promotes chinese culture with campaigns and great pomp in society over all others. That basically extols conformity to 'chinese' culture, and renders the singaporean identity synonymous with the chinese one...and you won't find the chinese complaining about that, which makes them not too dissimilar to the french in their self-absorption - though it's not as bad amongst the French as i've witnessed some level of inter-cultural/national empathy amongst them.

To both, I would say, I don't give a toss about your 'values' if such 'values' lead to your devaluation of difference. If anything should be banned, it should be such cultural/racial supremacism.

As for the self-absorbed French, I really don't understand a people who'd prefer their mothers and sisters don the immodesty of whores instead of the modesty of women. I don't have a problem with either, so long as one is not legally countenanced over the other.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

ed racially harassed by police at Changi Airport

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
