In Support of Niqab & Bikini, Especially Bikini

Although I believe that the niqab (full face veil) is unnecessary and is a patriarchal tool to control women, I support those women who chose to wear the niqab - from their own free will/conviction.

Banning the niqab is a violation of women's rights, employment and educational rights, personal rights, and human rights in general.

The women of Egypt should be allowed to wear whatever the hell they want to wear - from the higab (head scarf) to the niqab, and from mini-skirts to bikinis.

More bikinis please!
