that's sexist women should be able to wear what ever they want as well as men.

Well we both agree that covering yourself shouldn't be banned(even though I don't enjoy that it's an archaic remnant of female oppression).

I just don't think it should be allowed in places that don't let you hide your face for obvious reasons.

funny thing is we're on the same side.

I'm more worried about guns too, but that's not the topic.

As far as ski masks, I'm only talking about places that already have restrictions on wearing masks. At no point is this about restricting religious freedom, this is about not granting people special rights because of their religion.

I could join a religion that worships cocaine, but I'd still be arrested for possession and it wouldn't be "religious discrimination". Laws in a free society shouldn't cater to any certain religion.

Im more concerned with the unfettered right to carry firearms than i am with tge rights to wear a ski mask for public safety reasons.

agree. but the balance that i suggested can be readily achieved. my fear is that society uses safety as a "mask" for religious discrimination. im terms of ski masks, ski lodges allow one to order a drink wearing a ski mask. why do thy not share your safety concerns?

if hijabs are allowed anywhere, I should be able to wear a ski mask anywhere to conceal my identity. Obviously that's crazy. Freedom of religion ends where that freedom affects others.

a balance can be achieved between ensuring safety and permitting the free exercize of religion. example: security scanner at store entrance exit.

Because she has her face hidden... you understand why we're not allowed to wear masks in certain establishments right? To prevent robberies.

ok but if shes wearing a burqua (fully clad gown, face included) and she walked into a bank its suddenly wrong? I understand that part about peoples safety but what if she feels more comfortable in a burqua? then who are you to tell her what to wear?

3 years, 10 months ago

Depends what they're covering. if she's covering her face she shouldn't be allowed to go into a bank. You can't wear masks for other people's safety.

Otherwise I have no problem with covering.
