NY POST COLUMNIST OUTRAGED SUPERMODEL GISELE BUNDCHEN “INSULTED” ISLAM BY WEARING BURQA TO HIDE HER IDENTITY: “LIKE THE RACHEL DOLEZAL OF ISLAM.”

Nonsense! Former Al Gore advisor Naomi Wolf assured us all that the burqa is the “ultimate feminist choice,” as my former PJM colleague Phyllis Chesler noted in 2009:

Wolf recently traveled to Morocco, Jordan, and Eygpt where she found the women “as interested in allure, seduction, and pleasure as women anywhere in the world.” Whew! What a relief. She writes:

“Many Muslim women I spoke with did not feel at all subjugated by the chador or the headscarf. On the contrary, they felt liberated from what they experienced as the intrusive, commodifying, basely sexualizing Western gaze….Many women said something like this: …’how tiring it can be to be on display all the time. When I wear my headscarf or chador, people relate to me as an individual, not an object; I feel respected.’ This may not be expressed in a traditional Western feminist set of images, but it is a recognizably Western feminist set of feelings.”

Good enough for Naomi, good enough for Gisele.
