If France decides to mandate clothing for Muslim women, what's next? Style guidelines for middle-aged men?
When France says it wants to "assimilate" people it really means "digest." We in the USA harbor the same basic attitude -- that all immigrants should be melted down into American ingots, as opposed to simply being left to pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
In whatever clothes they like.
