Princess darling,

May I humbly suggest that your dear blog include photos of nuns in their head-gears ... or of ladies in the US of A getting married wearing their veils.

I personally think it is a compliment to the wider public to keep one's face invisible from it (the public) as much as possible. Respect for one's fellow human-being, perhaps .... i.e., I won't offend you my showing me...

Can we please just get rid of this poisonous God meme and stop telling each other how to live?

"I'm not here to live my life and do whatever I want. I'm here to worship God," Seyam said. "I don't think that everybody has that, and I think that I'm lucky for it."

I was all prepared to say something and that first comment freak messed me up.

Princess: thanks for that post. I learned from it, sad but true. It inspired me to google the term I used in the comments to the previous post, abaya, which I knew because my mom worked for a short time in Saudi and had to wear one anytime she left the embassy grounds. I had somehow gotten in my head that it was just the scarf (hijab), but now I remember her saying it was a full length black gown that covered pretty much everything. Oh, so comfortable in the desert heat...

You've got me thinking about how we delude ourselves and oppress each other based on those delusions. I appreciate your strategy for dealing with that: I wish more people had your gift for bullshit detection, this world would be a happier place.

anon numbers 1 and 2 freaked me out. whatevah.

I'm giggling at the thought of Jenna and whatever the other one's name is and Crazy Eyes ALL in little scarves. But of course theirs would be TRES FASHIONABLE! That is, if La Ursula would loan them her designer....

Speaking of La Ursula--we need more of her! Not to mention more Condibots and matching armchairs and Kleenex boxes and....
