Hogwash. It becomes a crime if we outlaw it. That's the definition of a crime.We are not talking about crime though, we are talking about banning a form of expression and it's infringement on personal rights.
This is certainly debatable, but I have yet to see an argument that favors banning the burqa. If the burqa is banned, there will be some women whose families won't allow them in public anymore. That's hardly on the same level as being uncomfortable for a couple minutes.And then I bring up my original point which is not such a weak argument after all.. Where does the rights of one person's comfort and personal expression end and where do another's begin?
What right is this again? I've never heard of this right before.Since personal rights are highly subjective, why would someone's right to see the face every citizen they come into contact with over power the right of another to hide that face or likewise? Somebody gets hurt in each case.
The only solution is majority rules.. meaning less people get hurt.
What culture is this?Then you speak of alienation of culture. So what of the person who feels alienated by someone who they feel hides from them? What about the culture of the society where wearing a mask is not considered an acceptable practice??
Who is alienating who?
You've got it totally wrong. I don't think you understand what I mean by demand at all. Think supply/demand curves.So going to your concept of demand.. if more people demand something than not, then more people should get what they want. This is why many bans are already in place over many "victimless crimes" .
