Default Islamic republic and mandatory hijab

As you already know, hijab has been mandatory in Iran since the revolution. Refusal to abide is punishable by fines, lashes and imprisonment. This photo shows a girl protesting against the mandatory hijab during the current uprising. I think the photo is perfectly self-explanatory, and I don't need to add anything!

People insist on strange things when they embrace the imaginary sky-daddy. A brave woman.

Even without official laws, hijab seems mandatory if one does not want to lose family and friends for removing it. Or worse.
No compulsion in religion? Bullshit.

There is nothing to be done really. Women are so impure a hijab is only a band-aid on a fundamentally insolvable problem. Logically, Islam should implode from the burden of its own absurd contradictions, or Muslim men should refuse to interact with unclean women altogether, thus causing extinction!
