Female fashions and ‘other’ religions

By matt31221 - 9 February 2011 28

Me and the wife were enjoying an afternoon of bank account draining fun (my account not hers!) at the Tuggeranong Hyperdome last Sunday.  My wife finding a nice dress that didn’t leave much to the imagination in the cleavage department,  she decided to change into it in the store and wear it in the mall – no worries doesn’t bother me or anyone else in our modern society in the slightest,  Freedom of dress.

Well unfortunately I was wrong as when we were leaving,  there was an older man with his family coming in the opposite direction to us.  The man was clearly Muslim as he was wearing Muslim attire and his wife had a form of burka on.  The man looked at my wife’s cleavage and his face twisted into a vicious ball of rage,  he looked back up to her eyes and stared at her in a very angry and threatening manner.  His eyes tracked hers and my wife was actually very scared and moved out of his way,  I only noticed at the last minute and shouted out to him.  He ignored me and kept walking but stared at my wife angrily as he walked away.

I have respect for other people’s beliefs and religions but this event really pushed me to the limit.  The hate in the man’s eyes was unbelievable – and to express that hate towards a beautiful women??

Is it unfair that someone of a religion that is not native to Australia would impose their religious dress code on us here?   Should other religions respect the rights of women and assimilate into our society by our laws and rules?  What are people’s thoughts on this issue?

What’s Your opinion?

The OP didn’t like the way this man was looking at someone so he verbally assaulted him. Nice.

I’m sure CWA women look disapprovingly at all sorts of people, let’s start shouting at them. Some off them probably deserve a punch, too.

Native: belonging to a particular place by birth.

I was born here. That makes me native to Australia.

Really? So an elephant born at Taronga zoo is a native Australian animal? Well, I’ll be buggered.

When referring to humans as opposed to the rest of the earth’s lifeforms, “native” has a different meaning. Amazing isn’t it?

It makes that particular elephant native to Australia.

His fear/anger is his problem, not your wife’s.

until he whips out his scimitar, yells ‘jihad! die, infidels!’, beheads her and runs laughing to the nearest camera threatening the infidels in power across the globe… then it’d be her problem.

but more seriously, the man wasn’t imposing his dress code on you, just reacting as is his upbringing. of course we would like all people to be tolerant of our society [glib rhetoric], but that also means you being tolerant of his views, no? it is, as pointed out elsewhere, disingenuous of you to conflate his religion and his ‘native-ness’ – religions like christianity and islam are not ‘native’ to australia. maybe you should consult the rainbow serpent for its views?

People have every right to look disapprovingly at others if they don’t like what they see. It’s not like anyone tried to pass a law preventing the woman in question from expressing herself through her choice of clothing.

When I was younger and prettier and still living at home, my dad expressed his opinion about my choice of short shorts and crop top with a highly disapproving look and “you’re not wearing that to church are you?”. (well no, I was about to wear it on a date.) It seems Catholic and Muslim men agree on some things. And they’re entitled to their opinion, just as I am entitled to mine.
