Why the fuck not?

Why the fuck would I want to cover my whole body while I’m still alive?

I wouldn’t, nor should I.

Brothers! Why is it only sisters you tell this bullshit to?

    And what a way to make a strong association between the burka etc. and a shroud.

    That is shockingly grotesque. I mean that. That’s a new level for me.

    … as in, there’s no “who” inside – more like a “what”.

    This is as chilling as it is revolting. 🙁

    @Robert B.
    It’s just advice. Whoever made this is really, really concerned about women’s safety. He/she wants to help us with advice.

    Women are effectively meat. They should be shrouded at all times, because no one really cares whether they are alive or dead.

    The statement makes no sense at all unless you assume there is some inherent worth in covering up your whole body. Which is not really true except in some situations. It might be better if it was a bit more specific. Like: “Sisters! Don’t let your burial shroud be the first time you’ve pulled the covers over your head and had a nice sleep in.”

    I cover my whole body every winter night, with only my eyes showing above the covers. Blankets are great. Burkas? Not.

    I’m glad other people think it looks like a threat. And not even a veiled threat (see what I did there?) I thought I was being uniquely paranoid instead of my usual common-or-garden regular paranoia.
