Sarko: Stop Dispensing Fashion Advice!

Look, Sarkozy, I know your wife is a former fashion model and all, but that does not give you the right to dispense fashion advice to all women. You are not the "ethnic clothing" fashion police. When you ban something like the burka, you have to think through the implications. Not only do some women want to wear it, but still others, yes, have to or they are not allowed to go outside by their families, so at least the burka is harm-reduction for them while they decide if they want to leave their communities. Ah, am so sick of all this shit Muslim women have to go through on a day-to-day basis.

Down With Sarko! Like, seriously. He's my replacement for George Bush in my heart - he occupies that special place reserved for my most-hated leaders of so-called liberal democracies that oppress and disenfranchise huge numbers of citizens...
