oh.

Did I tell you I found a burka in my MIL's clothes? She traveled to Iraq and had to have her passport picture taken wearing the burka as well as travel (and wear it.) It was hidden in the far depths of her closet and she NEVER discussed it. It was her DARK secret. CLEARLY shame. That kinda surpised me about her.

Scary/intense/amazing/WTF

Picture.

Happy MM.

Dark, repressive and creepy. Probably hot as hell too.

Happy Mute Monday!

Maybe I am crazy but there really is something erotic about just seeing a woman's eyes and the rest covered up. Happy Mute Monday!!

Visiting Birmingham recently, I was astonished at the number of women similarly dressed walking along the suburban streets. A real clash of cultures. Nice take x

I have several lovely liberal female friends that I'd like to see forced to wear a burka.
I think they could use the perspective.

A male friend of mine once rather sensitively (not) ruminated on what it would be like to do the deed with a Muslim woman.

I told him he'd just feel a complete burka!

The most ridiculous burka-wearers must surely be white women who convert. And they never mean it, they're just trying to find a man who doesn't drink or cheat. I think most of them convert back pretty quickly!
