My friend, life is choices. Whatever the choices, if the person is okay with their choices why we have to mind with that. Some women or girls choose to wear dress which covers their whole body. It's their choice. It's their basic human right. I don't think we have to be extremly curious on that, like asking a question : don't they feel hot or something ?
Hot or not hot it's none of our business. As long as they enjoy wearing it,just fine

My friend, it would be cruel when we force them to dress like we want them to do.
Dixie wrote:...they just stick to their traditions.
My dear friend, we have to differentiate between traditions and religious teachings. To them, they are committing their religious teachings. I think we should appreciate it. They are trying to do their best to serve God. Just let them free committ what they believe.

That's your basic human right my dear. Just go ahead. Wear whatever you want to as long as it doesn't break the rules of the countries where you are staying in.
I dress the way I want, there's nobody telling me I should hide my body or my face or my hair (and if there was, I wouldn't listen!
Who are they to tell me what I should do)..
Bingo. Again, that's the point. Just be yourself my friend. Dress the way you are !!!
Dixie wrote:So, I also think that if I wouldn't change my dressing style, we can't ask them to do it, either.
You yourself say that honey. you're totally right !!!
My last point is :
[size=18]1. Do not force anybody to wear certain dresses.
2. Do not force anybody not to wear certain dressess.[/
