VBTV - Please contribute

My other blog is making slow (ok, not any) progress towards my analysis and refutation of 'Voices Behind the Veil,' but there is an interesting character who likes to comment on some of the posts, about hijab. She insists that it is oppressive to women, and that even though men don't force women to wear it, it is somehow unnatural and preventing the women from achieving happiness and... other silliness. In fact, I can't even fairly present her claim because it quite literally makes no sense to me.

I've responded to her a few times, but I would like for anyone interested in the subject of hijab, who believes it is both a command from Allah and a manifestation of internal modesty, to please contribute to that discussion, which you can find here: http://vbtv.blogspot.com/2007/07/notes-on-foreword.html

It's not even the text of the post that is relevant, just the comments. Jazakumallahkhair for your help.

Salam, Amy!
Could I ask you to write a comment or a post about that hadeeth that you mentioned in a comment on your first post on VBTV? I'm really interested in what you wanted to say, although I don't even know which hadeeth you were thinking of.
Thanks!

The hadith about women being deficient. InshaaAllaah I'll try to make a post on it soon. Thanks!
