That's not an answer to my question. I was wondering whether she has left the forum, which would be a pity. I admire her intellect. Here's her data:

It's funny that this thread came up today because I had just written on this topic as I was thinking about another thread on another forum.

Veiling

It was for the protection of women during Muhammad's time.  Should women have to protect themselves this way?  Or shouldn't men be able to become more civilized?

I can't imagine never being able to enjoy the feel of the warmth of the sun on my skin... or the breeze as it cools the skin.

I can't imagine in Malaysia, where it is 100 degrees... and other desert regions... having to be all covered like that.

That's just what I was thinking.  A man had made a comment on another forum about how the women in the west do not veil, and said it as a slur against them, as though it somehow speaks to their purity... and it had me thinking about veiling, and the different standards in the muslim world that there are for men vs. for women.  Women are expected to be pure and veiling gives this impression, but how true is this impression?  And what about the men, how much do they value their purity?  Do they hold themselves to the same high standard as they hold their women?  Are muslim men and women really any more pure than those in the west?  I don't think so.  I think a lot of muslim reverts are such because they are trying to escape their sinful pasts.  I think we are all subject to sinful natures in a sin filled world.  It's just that in the west it is no longer hidden... less hypocrisy.
(This all came up because of a discussion about mutah.)
