If "it is just a piece of cloth", then then no one should care if the players don't wear it.

 

But the real issue is that FIDE failed to live up to its promise to defend players' rights.  FIDE should have delayed choosing a WWC host country until they received an acceptable bid.  Delaying the WWC by a few months would be preferable to forcing professional chess players to choose between submitting to intolerance vs damaging their careers.

It is just a piece of cloth...that causes alot of issues.

For purely aesthetic reasons, most men should wear a bag over their heads.

100% of women who wear a hijab have hormones and so will feel sexually aroused.  So what does the hijab really do?  I'm puzzled.

wear a hijab here and be seen by a policeman. €11 fine.

Are you suggesting that it sexually arouses women?

If that's the case, then it's all the more reason for me to wear one. Tongue Out
