And one can find this law equally ridiculous.

In France it is allowed for a woman to be topless on the beach but if she crosses the road to buy a refreshment topless then it is forbidden. This is ridiculous too !

Anyone forcing you to visit a muslim country ?

If you don't want to go then don't go !

Personally I would never visit a bigot country and that is why I will not go to the US.

It's the beauty of choice.

Some people find it's all in fun (I happen to be one of these people) and some people find it degrading.

My point is freedom and democracy is to allow people to do things you do not like, not to force everybody to do only things you like.

As long as no one forces you, what's the problem ?
