If they are imposed by religion? I do not agree.

Anyhow, in high couture we have long dresses, carves, hats and so on. The high stylists prefer long dresses to mini-dresses. And I prefre too. It is not what you show that attracts you but what you guess. Though I find women athletes very, very sexy.



But as I told in another post, I have seen topless women (with breasts down to the ankles ) and miniskisrts (fatty, distorted legs), and that I would prefer to see in burkhas so ugly the sight !!! I am speaking as a man.
I suppose this isn't the worst fetish I ever heard of

Actually, there is a great deal of hypocrisy in how Muslim men act and how they expect their women to act. For instance, the suicide attackers on 9/11 frequented strip clubs (keep in mind that these men were supporters of the Taliban and equally harsh groups).

So you don't know how she feels about the possibility of her husband having 3 other wives which is not a stereotype but a true possibility:
004.003 If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice.

While Christianity considers lust a sin, Islam does not. Islam also allows for lust to be acted on during a temporary marriage or with a slave that they possess.

The verdict is still out with the bacha boy situation- some Muslims say it is ok because the boys are beardless other Muslims say it is a homosexual act.

I can see how wearing a burka would set a woman free from cat calls and rape- "uncovered meat" asking for rape in the eyes of many Muslim men.
Its a classic blaming the victim strategy

Even more so than Christianity or Judaism, Islam is a relgion that was obviously created by men, for the benefit of men specifically.

Nor is Christianity necessarily Islam's very twin (or visa versa).

Christ is the only savior.
Mohamed is saved THROUGH Christ.
What good is is Islam comes from Jesus Christ.
Every Muslim is saved through Jesus Christ.

I'm the wife, but yes, I think we are each other's. I wouldn't say either of us is property, though. I was asked that question about my kids once, at a book club. Do we own our children? No, people aren't owned. And yet, they are mine and my husband's. Maybe that's contradictory, but I see a difference.

One thing is whether intentional touching e.g. by any man of any female's bottom is allowed or not, a bit different thing of proving such (after such happened to one female on one occasion without witness/es).

Huh?? Should strange men be able to grab women's bottoms as they pass through in a crowd? Uh, no. Sure, I might have been talking to liars, but I seriously doubt it - at least one of them thought it was funny. My point is that even the head to toe covering isn't always a protection, though it certainly is a burden for many.

Fetish? Tell you, forget about it.
The story goes about the sailors who arrived to a certain island in the Pacific where everybody was naked and the women were not particularly endowed with physical attractiveness and when the missionaries arrived and convinced them to dress, what a relief, they said. Wel, it mus be a legend.

But when they have the Miss Universe event, they must have a number like cattle, the Juri cannot distinguish them...

The attraction is on guessing not on seeing.

Byt the way, have you ever been to a Muslim Country?

Again, should they (in particular males) be able, as in physically able to do grab any woman's bottom regardless of whether they would do so or not and regardless of whether it is allowed or not? In other words, when such (in any particular country) is considered sexual harrasment, and when the two of us, in such country, would happen to be squeezed in in a train, standing, and your bottom would happen to touch my loose hand, I would hope you wouldn't sue me or punish me for it, albeit arguably (not only) males have responsibility for their hands (with exceptions such as epileptical seizure), and it isn't difficult to keep hands in pocket or above waist line.

And for that matter, head to toe covering makes it in most public places practically impossible for any hand to slip (at first) unnoticed to the (naked) panties area. The (weather/climate) environment being of more significance (sand, dust, wind, Sun-light) regarding "dress code" than males per se though.

Not a naked bottom - how would you feel if, walking down a street,someone reached out to give a quick squeeze or caress to your posterior? It's no accident. It's disrespectful and intrusive. Can you seriously not understand that? If the climate were the real issue, the men's faces would also be covered, and the women could wear a heat-reflecting white as well.

But I was in Dubai recently and I was quite impressed by the level of modesty displayed by some of the women.

Though, it was funny when i saw a woman in a full length burka having an argument in a mall with her husband, and in english yelled at him "I saw you checking out her bottom...." And that guy, looked very, very scared!
And the impracticality of it. During a visit of Malaysia in mid-September, my friend and I met other tourists from the Middle East. The women were dressed very modestly, of course. Those from Saudi Arabia wore full black clothes, as a Hindu taxi driver related to us. I thought it must have been unbearably hot for the women without air-conditioning, everything covered but the eyes, like the first picture provided by the OP. But I did marvel at the beautiful detail of their long dresses and veil, e.g., bead accents, a bit of appliqué or lace here and there, mostly black as well.

Tired of Hainanese food for days in a row, we went for McDonald's hamburger inside a huge mall in Kuala Lumpur one time. A young Saudi couple with their child took the table next to us, the woman dressed in the fashion as described. Her husband wore comfortable long shorts and light colored shirt as did the little boy. They ordered hamburgers and fries.

You can just imagine the repeated motions the woman had to do with each bite of the burger and fries. She kept her facial veil, which she had to lift each time with one hand and putting the food in her mouth with the other! The man and their son looked like they enjoyed their food, unencumbered, of course.
