Prompted by this question:
I think Kilisi summarised most users' stance on the subject raised by the OP in his answer:
Your undoubtably admirable and steadfast religious convictions are unfortunately totally at odds with Western mores and social systems.
The kind of gender discrimination suggested by the OP is illegal in most Western countries and generally villified in those cultures, as evidenced by the reactions this post elicited. After less than a hundred views the question has already been downvoted into oblivion and is on its fourth close vote. However, as much as I may dislike it, the opinion brought forth by the OP is still a majority opinion in certain parts of the world and the Workplace is still an international site.
With that in mind, how should we deal with questions like these in the future? These questions are liable to turn into a pile-on, as happened with a previous question on religious restrictions on male-female interactions: How to politely decline a handshake due to religious reasons?.
Cultural differences lie at the base of this particular question, but I'm not sure if this discussion should be restricted to just those instances so I've kept a generic title.
Note that this question was originally deleted by a moderator after being closed (as "real questions have answers") and downvoted to put a stop to the perceived abuse of the OP in the question's comments. It has since been undeleted and the comment thread erased. After some edits the question was reopened. The OP later added and accepted his own answer as a controversial update to a controversial question. That answer has since been deleted.
