Burka £30.95 on Amazon now!
« on: Jun 03, 2024, 12:45:54 PM »
I left my house today at o9.00hrs to go shopping,this time by car. My immediate neighbourhood can transform itself dependant upon the hour or the time of the year,or as now,over the past 6 years.


Just strating out and entering into another street I did a left to go along to my traffic light wherein my eyes popped open to see my own Pakistan. Incredible. Along the road there were a-plenty aisan ladies dressed in all sorts of Muslim attire,naquabs,abayas,veils,and now the full monty,a full 'post box' burka. I dont think I would have been so...goggle-eyed(?)but that the lady(?)wearing it must have been all of 6' 2". Incredible. Just before the traffic lights there seemed to be some to-do with the bus halted,asian(muslim man?)debating with another  man(muslim?)blocking the road. I looked left and right and suddenly I was in Egypt. It was really quite a sight. I cant say I really welcome it,but I am willing to reprimand myself against these wrong thoughts when told by my local MPs daughter,now 12 and three quarters,soon to be 14. Labour.


I wondered if arguments might break out in my ever changing,increasingly diverse, neighbourhood. Sikhs are quite visible. And I wondered which side I should take should violence break out between Sikhs and Muslims,Christians and Muslims,then all others hereabouts....the occasionaly African or Afro-Caribbean moving in.


I guess I am racist for noticing such an extraordinary change in my neighbourhood. Its quite complex. When,later,I returned home from shopping,I noticed two elderly Indian pensioners who I saw crossing a side roadOne lady,one man). They were dressed 'western style',and with their age and appearance and 'race',I suddenly felt endeared to them and saw them true British,English even.


Getting older means getting more peculiarities,I'm afraid. I notice matters. I am left wondering if I should notice matters. I wonder if I would be willing to go to Keir Starmers re-education camps wherein-in I could be taught how to think and what thoughts are irredeemable. Questions I would like to ask Labour are: Am I allowed to have thoughts? What thoughts am I allowed to have. If I am not allowed to have certain thoughts,how long-a-time will I serve in prison. Will I serve a life sentance? I dont think I would like 100,000,000 to come to Britain. Why dont I like Burkas. Can I get counselling? On the NHS?

I don't always admire the French, but I believe they ban the bloody things...


This...France to ban female students from wearing abayas in state schools

Hi


We have a lot to learn from the French in this respect.


None of our Politicians have the guts to do this.


The French apply it to all Religions, they also ban the Jewish Kippa.

All my years living in Turkey, I reckon I could count on one hand how many women I saw with their faces covered. AND still end up with fingers to spare. Headscarf’s aplenty, face covering no. One of those who I saw was a tourist from the UK 😂

We knew a woman out there, a dead ringer for Cher, really out going. Then she got married & out came the headscarf. My wife asked why she was wearing it? The reply was, “my husband wanted me to wear it”.
It’s oppression.
In my house it’s my wife who tells me what to wear, I can’t remember ever telling her what to wear......I do remember years back though telling her to, “get em off”. 😂
I’m a real he/him.

So how is her wearing a stylish scarf bad for anyone then, including her?
A lot of western women cover up so they don't get harassed by strangers.
I would have thought your wife telling you what to wear is oppression (unless you are into that sort of thing?).

Get back into your cave Flintstone  man .
Most westerners women do nothing of the sort .
The strangers who harass women tend to be men from medieval cultures where women are treated as second / third  class citizens .
They usually to subscribe to the usual misogynistic    ideology that is infesting the west .

I wasnt going to comment any further on this blog until I noticed their had been some further comments made above.


Anyways...


I was out yesterday at the same time and going along the roads I went the other day at the same time when...there was the Burka person again! My wife was with me and commented. Yes,the person seemed to be 6' or more,but my wife noticed the walk,and it was a long stride and with the gait of a man. I looked and noticed,and yes it was definately a mans walk. I couldnt make it out. Of course its non of my business,but it was part of the changing scene arounabouts my neighbourhood which I havent seen before. The reason it all excites me is that sometimes/oftentimes I think I should put my skates on and escape from where I live before the whole area turns Pakistan. Apologies for the overt discriminative observation,as tho I am happy to live in a diversified neighbourhood I do not feel  comfortable in living in a predominately foreign neighbourhood. As is normal theseadays I do not feel comfortable in voicing my prejudices which are generalisations but which I have found to be true tho all 'my betters' say are wrong but do not live by anything they usually pontificate from the lecturns.




You may want to comment and before you comment,reflect: Would you consider buying a house next to a family or group of families whose female residents all wear full Saudi Arabian attire. All this with the change of style of housing wherein most green space is filled in with sheds or tramc for more car parking.


We all know our leaders would tell me how awful and backward and prejudiced I am. Still,I note most do not live in an area or house as I live. For example the Arhcbishop of Canterbury lives in Lambeth Palace,Sunak in deep country,and Cameron in the Cotswolds or the like. Its seem similar with other leaders who seem so removed from common folke

For what it's worth,  I find those Burka's intimidating.   I can't help it,   whether I am allowed to say it or not.

Good cover for criminals  if on CCTV too.   How on earth would anyone be able to give a description to the police if necessary?


If bikers have too remove their headwear in shops/garages etc,   how come Burkas are allowed?

Who said it was stylish?
You missed the point, it was her husband who TOLD her to wear it.
How ignorant some people are as to what really goes on in Asian communities. The head of a household goes beyond his own house, it spreads to the whole of the family who don't even live there & that equates to voting as well.
There's no MUST between my wife & I.


Ive said before on here, something my wife & I witnessed (there's been many things).
On this particular occasion we were invited to a house in Izmir, we'd only seen the wife wearing a headscarf. When we went inside, the woman didnt have the scarf on. During our stay I took a couple of photos of the whole family. Before we left, the husband pulled me to one side & said, "please don't show  the pictures to my brothers families", I asked why? He said because his wife wasn't wearing her headscarf.
Its oppression & ignorance by those who don't recognize it.
Now that's just a headscarf!!
I’m a real he/him.
