Ok, this is kinda cool: New Uniform for Sikhs in US Army
More power to 'em...
It's all good, except ....
Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and Wiccan soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen can now request exemptions to strict military uniform and grooming policies.And I don't really mind any of these people wearing slightly altered uniforms or maybe exempted from shaving.
But ... what about the female soldiers? What if a Muslima insists that her version of Islam requires her to cover from head to toe? That I'd have a problem with.
Yes, this exists.
Also, Wiccans have special clothing they wear? What is that, a pair of Doc. Martins, black eye liner and nailpolish ... for the guys?
