Okay, I'm all for freedom of choice as to what women should wear...many women really do choose to wear hijab. and I've met a few women who've CHOSEN to wear a burqa here in Guyana...

...but metal? Do you know why?

She has lovely hands.

Having consulted with some male Emiratis, it seems a metal burqa is mostly reserved for the older generation, where tradition is more important than looks and/or functionality. for her hands, I'd let her darn my socks any day of the week!
