JR Dressage Queen
- Nov 15, 2007
I can see your point, however, I think this article serves an important purpose. Since the polygamist groups have been in the news so much, we've all seen the way the women dress at these compounds. I think people are curious. Are they like the Amish? Do they have electricity and running water? Do they use horses and buggies rather than cars and trucks? All we can see from the news is that the people living at the compounds are dressed differently from women and children you'd see on the streets in Manhattan, and different from people you'd see in most areas of the US. But why? Do their husbands make them cover themselves - is this some form of submission? Are they like some Muslims that don't show their hair or bare skin? Is their dress governed by the Mormon church or by some sort of FLDS law?I think it's actually in incredibly bad taste that someone has written an article about something as shallow as their appearance when there is an investigation into girls within this sect being forced into sexual relations and marriage.......
