The latest from Pat Condell:
Starting at 4:00 in the video, he makes this lucid argument against the public wearing of the burqa:
– – – – – – – – –
The whole point of female concealment in Islamic society is that men are not expected to take responsibility for their sexual urges. So any woman who is not covered up from head to toe is asking to be raped.
The burqa, therefore, legitimizes rape. It apologizes for rape; it justifies rape.
Are you listening, feminists?
And this makes it, in my opinion, as offensive a public statement as a Ku Klux Klan uniform or a Nazi swastika, and I think it should be treated with exactly the same revulsion and contempt.
Thanks to Zenster for the transcript.
