    Re the pink thing, I don't believe that quite has as many harmful effects as the hijab at a young age and the like. I mean, it'll influence kids, sure. Everything does, they're like sponges. But it's hard to compare them beyond that, I think.

    No. It is blatant sexualization. Because donning it claims that the body beneath it is too sexy to be in public space.

    And is not the logical next step to report it to Police, NSPCC etc as child sexual abuse?


    I was just thinking more about all of this. Do you all believe that the hijab should be banned? Do you think that adult women have a right to choose what they want to wear, or that parents have a right to dress their little girls in what they choose? Or do you think that this religious item has no purpose other than religious based sexual suppression and should be deemed harmful to society and banned?

    The misspelling in my name is intentional, because I'm an idiot and I can't spell properly. But I'd probably also say that even if it was a mistake. Does that clear things up?

    It is very rare for a bear to do that. Very unusual.

    Having never come across a wild bear I would probably freak out as well. How do you not freak out when coming across a 2-3 meter tall predator that can run and catch you, climb trees, is so much stronger than you and has claws that can take your head off with one swipe? What if the bear is hungry?

    Hijab should not be banned, but the wearing of it by girls should be until they reach the age of consent. Parents have a right to choose children's clothing to a point, after which others should step in (sexual language on t-shirts included). there should not be a state run ban on it, just a strong societal pressure and influence on it so it diminishes on its own.

    Do you believe that societal pressure would be enough to diminish this practice? Or do you think that religious fundamentalists would react to that societal pressure by digging their heels in and becoming more strict about little girls wearing the hijab, thus raising even more fundamentalist children to carry on their beliefs? While there are obvious exceptions -such as the people on this board- I think most children follow in their parents footsteps. I don't know how you support people's freedom, while at the same time putting a stop to things which are arguably very harmful.

    I actually clicked on that specifically to see if it was that picture. I remember seeing this a few years back and it stuck in my mind until today.
