    Men are told to cover up their body just like the women are.

    Since women are much more attractive in sexual appearance or sex appeal much more than men, that is why.

    The standard of bashment fixed by Quran directs so for women  to save her from the ugly gaze of men. Man has no such attraction

    Men have to cover up too.. but the nature of men and women are different. We are all required to dress modestly.

    Very simple. Men are, generally speaking, unable to control themselves around women so the idea is to remove temptation from their eyesight and avoid being in close proximity to them so that zina (sexual immorality) is not possible. This is particularly true about non believers but even amongst believers it is much better for that temptation not to exist lest the individual/s be encouraged into sinful thought. It is acknowledged that man is impatient for marital type relations, i.e. it is basic human nature which is why marriage itself is very much encouraged in Islam. Christian women are also required to dress modestly for this very reason .. to avoid admiring glances from their male counterparts. So it is a purity issue.

    You know. Hadiths never go much into detail of what a hijab means though or what it is? It says veiling, context is often "revelation of hijab came when one screened themself with curtain" so its not like the thing itself is very clear there

    this modest dress and covering of the hair is also a jewish and christian tradition too , just jews and christians ignore that part of their faith these days..... God protects women from the lustful eyes of men who might do harm.. if you have diamonds and pearls, you dont want to flaunt them to tempt crime.. you prize them and protect them.. same with women. we are the pearls of the earth and as such we are to be protected.... Mary mother of Jesus always wore a scarf/head cover.. nuns do.. orthodox jewish women and christian women also do....

    Men and females have to dress in loose clothing that covers their arms, legs, cleavage and it cant be see through. Women need to cover their hair. Men do not have long hair. It is common sense. The rules are written by God not men. Men in the Middle East do wear a scarf covering their head. 

    EDIT: Don't listen to Sussie she is a retard.

    Their men said so. No further justification needed.

    Women also can not be independent without her husband. I have no problem with Islam women covering their hair, so long as they are choosing to and it isn't being forced on them. But I do believe the head scarf has sexist origins.
