Women wearing Muslim veil and mini shorts

I initially found this video very amusing, because it appeared to be mocking Islamic misogyny. In reality, it’s supposed to be a protest of the new French law banning the “burkha,” which in this case is actually the niqab. Such behavior may have the opposite effect of what it is intended to do, however. Indeed, it may encourage the horrendously oppressed Saudi women, for example, to bare more, as they are already doing online for example.

Outside the Ministry of Immigration and National Identity, the girls meet up with with two police officers, a male and a female.

The male policeman says: “You can’t stay here.”

NiqaBitch: “Why, is it forbidden?”

Male cop: “No, er, but don’t stay here – that’s preferable.”

Female cop: “I love your outfit. Is that against the law?”

NiqaBitch: “Yes, we are dramatising the situation.”

Female cop: “That’s great – can I take your picture?”

As we can see from the sad and desperate ladies in the following video, making light of women being oppressed is really not a laughing matter. Nor is it particularly intelligent to protest a law designed to protect women from this misogynistic oppression. If “NiqaBitch” were a joke ridiculing the Islamist oppression of women, it would be a far more impressive act of protest. And a funny one, as I had initially envisioned it. But such forced gender apartheid is simply demented, and encouraging it isn’t much better.

  1. who wears short shorts. HEHEHE ooh yeah baby, hot pants!

    I ponder do they get the idiocy of their protest? If they really cared why do this, but really who cares, and if the mooslems wanted to practice their ways why move to someone else’s country just stay where F you are and leave everyone else alone! But this is not about living in peace is it, it’s all about making others obey your rules and regulations! I say to hell with any rules but to let live until threatened then talk about it. If all the talking goes wrong well you get what we have in this world.

    1. Ever thought that maybe there are french muslims and france is thier country …

  2. I agree with you here Acharya. The French have a right to take a stand, and establish some guidelines for how immigrants behave in their countries. Not all customs of another culture are acceptable in a new one.

    Banning the burkha is a good way to tell fanatical muslims that they are not welcome in France.

  3. Banning the Burqa
    The wearing of the burqa is a political statement. And yes it is provocative. What a paradox! Why do they supposedly flee their countries & come to ours & insist on carrying out these medieval customs in our modern secular societies? The obvious impression is that they wish to change/subvert our societies values & laws from within. Their culture and mindset is of a totalitarian and authoritarian nature at complete odds with our Enlightenment values of freedom of thought,will and expression. In fact they take complete advantage of that in our societies to challenge us on this. I say we cannot accommodate such a culture or mindset. Either fully embrace our values of freedom & free will honestly or leave! And that means also ending the death threats to apostates and the genital mutilation of babies.

  4. Banning is wrong
    In the UK they are now considering banning ‘gang colours’ as if this will somehow solve the problems of gang violence in London and other areas of the UK

    In the US (I forget which state) showing your underwear above your baggy jeans was said to have been banned as if this will solve the problems with teenage rebellion and gang culture

    At various points in history certain items of clothing have been banned or looked down upon (miniskirt etc)

    Taking away peoples rights to dress as they please is simply wrong and is another example of the nanny state interfering in peoples lives and I’m still appalled by the French government oppressing the rights of minorities in this way in fact Im incensed and I’m a white British male.

    Yes the burqa is wrong when those wearing it have been forced or coerced into wearing it but so is banning it thus infringing peoples rights to wear what they please

    Banning is not the way forward there are other ways to oppose the awful oppression of women in Islamic culture ways that don’t include the state suppressing peoples basic human rights
