Sam Harris’s 2010 Ted talk

Chris Anderson’s comment on the veil being a protection against male lust is ludicrous. Children as young as three are made to wear these veils; it is ridiculous to claim that it is for protection against male lust, unless one is willing to call these societies savage. If there are cultures where women are at danger from male lust unless they are packed in a head-to-toe veil, what does that tell about those societies? Isn’t it appropriate for those societies to move to a level that the rest of the civil societies have reached where women won’t get raped just because their face is visible in public?
