Girl tries burqa, gets insults
Connecticut high-school student Caitlin Dean, a non-Muslim, went to school in a burqa for a day as an experiment. As a result, she was exposed to 50 hateful remarks from fellow students, including "Hey, we rape your women!" On the positive side, after this incident was revealed to the school population, interest in a Middle Eastern studies class soared (Hartford Courant).
