My wife wears a headscarf and sometimes a full Arabic veil when outside in the world. The modest dress of Muslim women is very appealing to me. A long dress and headscarf, and sometimes a full Niqab or Burqa gives an impression of feminine modesty and spirituality. It also affords women a sense of seriousness, of submissivesness, of privacy, and of peacefullness.

Such dress need not be plain. My wife has have scarves, long dresses and veils in a variety of materials and colors.

The wives of the Prophet covered themselves. Modesty and Submissiveness is a virtue.

I think he's a fake.  No Muslim with a right mind would lay claim to the jurisdiction of "vulva" and profess pride in female circumcision.

You speak of modesty and spirituality when your profile "jurisdiction" is disgusting and offensive?  And you expect us to engage in discussion with you?

But are her genitals mutilated, your sig begs that question.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I don't know that I would ascribe adherents to a false prophet as being "right-minded," but your point is noted.

Let me change that comment.  Any human being with a right mind...
