Yes , racist is in everyone's heart. and about local culture it depends how you think of it .for an instance if you want to eat by forks and spoon rather than chopsticks than just do it ,but if you want to eat some beef in india, so you just eat it outside of their eyesight. respect means do not hurt other and do not let you be below them~~.

Personally, I would never visit a muslim country because of this policy.

I would not subject myself to that kind of humiliation.  Its just degrading - which I think is the whole point of the dress code.  Let's make women feel ashamed of being women.....

Sometimes I see female reporters on the news in some muslim countries and they put on a head covering.  Makes me ashamed to be an american to see them sink so low.
