Exclamation Rule Change To Allow Religious Headgear...
I consider this sort of thing to be yet another example of the insidious nature of the Islamic religionists to—literally—contaminate otherwise nominally Christian or largely secular Western societies...

Rule change will allow religious headgear during basketball games

One of the absurdities claimed is that hijabs, turbans and yarmulkes will "minimise the risk of injuries, and preserve the consistency of uniform colours".

Really? More so than this...

American professional basketball player Breanna Stewart says: "I think it would mean a lot... Obviously with what’s going on in this world, we strive for equality. I think when you’re on the court or playing your sport, that’s your safe haven to get away from everything else that’s going on. It’s huge for them to be able to feel welcomed on the court and play".

This is great. Allowing girls who choose to wear head scarves a way to still interact with others is a net positive. Nobody is being forced to do anything they do not want to do, which in a free society is what we should strive for. Kudos to those that made this change.

Agreed, without such measures, those girls woudn't be practicing basket-ball in the first place which would be a shame since we could miss on some real talent there in addition to contributing further to the isolation of Muslim girls and women from society at large. How are we suppose to make them discover the virtues of self-confidence if we push them, inadvertently, outside of activities known to generate it in the first place.

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

I am happy with any clothing that does not obscure facial features.

I think it's fine. I don't understand why you have a problem with this. The basketball headgear is kinda cute. How does this do you harm? Is it a requirement that you must be able to see their hair?

In fencing you do you think it's wrong they cover their face? Are you personally against swimcaps?

It'll be fun to see some FSM adherent head butt an opposing player whilst wearing his spaghetti colander......

I'm cool with it. Chances are, those little gals are going to have enough problems dealing with the oppression of their own families. They don't need oppression to cone from outside.

They should be able to play with everyone else. It really is the point of freedom.

My grandma wore a babushka - not much difference. Drinking Beverage

If this was a must rather than a may I could understand being against it. That is the key difference to me, this is an option and options are good. All girls must wear head coverings and full length uniforms would be something to fight against because now they are not asking acceptance for themselves but forcing their views on others. As it stands I think it is nothing but a positive. The more marginalized groups get invited to join in a heterogeneous community the more they will begin the process of assimilation.
