3 reasons it must be frustrating to be a woman, Part 2

My latest at Medium.

People might object, “Well, they don’t really want to wear the burqa, no matter what they say. They’re frightened. And they don’t no any better.” 
In other words, we’re not to respect their agency. We are not to believe what these women say. 
If a Muslim woman asks me for help in leaving her home and ridding herself of the burqa, I would help. Otherwise, I won’t make assumptions about the women who wear them. If I don’t respect their freedom, I don’t respect them.
