"France allows girls to consent to sex at 15, but bans hijab until 18"

Now that - is nifty. Little Cassie can consent at 15, but she has to wait 3 years to put a piece of cloth ion her head.

Geez, talk about the deck tilted in the favor of teenage boys and grown men. It's clear which Gender is in charge of France that's for sure.

"France appears set to make the lives of Muslim women harder with additional laws on what they are allowed to wear."

Between a forever war in Mali, recently killing Muslims at a wedding - to wanting to dictate what women wear in France no different than the Taliban..... it's worrisome and I'm sure people have taken notice.

Hopefully this fine NATO Ally of America, this beacon of enlightenment, this favored destination of so many Americans (well, Tanzania and Africa might have become the new soup du jour but I digress).....will one day find it in its heart to stop bullying people of color, and to stop dictating to women and girls what they can and can't wear.
