... because having to wear a bit of cloth on your head is comparable to being buggered by a businessman in the backstreets of Zurich, isn't it?
Facing being beaten (if not killed) by your father and brothers for refusing to wear the heardscarf may be comparable though.

Yes, and there are also women who wear headscarves because they are making a political statement or researching a book etc etc.
There may also be some who don't care one way or the other but wear them because they always have.

Can you extrapolate from individual cases to the majority?

Another is the legality in Kt. ZH for 16 year olds to sell themselves here legally. (But let's focus on muslim buildings eh?)
You know, I'm sure that if the SVP launched a campaign to stop it all we'd have people on this forum moaning about how that is so racist against Roma and Hungarians.

Re: Hungarian sex workers flooding to Zurich

How can we end up comparing a headscarf with prostitution is belong my understanding....

Only seen on EF.

Beaten up a woman, for what matter the reason: To wear a headscarf, because an other man talk to her or because she didn't cook his steak enough is one thing that concern all women in the world no matter religion, culture and origin.

Prostitution compared with headscarf only is lazy and ''The Local'' mindset of provoquing an empty debate.

Why no comparing Prostitution with a married woman beat up by a jealous husband? Right, it doesn't bring the same drama into the debate than adding the good old religious card.
