Do you think it is fair to force women (in middle eastern countries) to cover up head to toe and divert their eyes from even loking at other men?
i think the assumption is, that if you cannot see the womans curves, you cannot be tempted by her, but why then not make the men divert THEIR eyes from ever looking at women not their wives?
It seems to me, completely hypocritical!
I understand there were even times when young girls would have their private parts seared or cut off, in attempt to control their urges, and keep them from straying. Again, I think...why are the women being punished for an act that usually requires a man & a woman to commit together?
Do you think the men should divert? Walk behind to woman? Have their "urges" controlled if infidelity is such a concern they stop at nothing to prevent it?
