France and discrimination

I don't understand why the French government is trying to ban headscarves. After all, quite apart from it being discriminatory against Muslims, what about all the nuns, women who just like scarves, and other non-Muslims the law will target? I thought of this point because I, a white pagan, got confused once as being a Muslim by some idiot who couldn't tell the difference between a cloak and a chador or hijab or whatnot. (Since to most Americans, it's ALL "burqa" to them.) Luckily, I didn't get any hate crime done against me when the idiot made his mistake. (He asked "You a Muslim?" belligerently. I gave him a scathing look and said witheringly, "It's a CLOAK, you idiot! I'm a PAGAN." Which got rid of him.) But it could have. Just because Americans are THAT fucking stupid. And, it seems the French government is equally stupid.

Straight people are sometimes extremely ignorant and/or stupid

A friend of mine told me about the time she went to a kink event (with sexy things going on within) held by DarkLady, where the cops showed up for some reason. I think because the cops were concerned about prostitutes hanging around. First bewilderment for the poor ignorant cops was the people running the kink party saying “Point them (the prostitutes) out for us, and we’ll run them away ourselves.” The looks on those cops’ faces must have been priceless.

Second example: Cops being confused as to why the lesbians had a women’s-only area of the play party. “Why would lesbians want to keep men out?” Oh gee, I dunno, maybe because they’re LESBIANS you asshats? As in, “we only fuck other GIRLS.” Sheesh!
