Bonnet: (n) a woman’s hat tied under the chin
This is why I do it.
Women have worn hats for years. There are many reasons that women wear hats.
Some are cultural or religious–a head covering worn to communicate they are weaker vessels and under subjection to men.
Some are beautiful adornments designed to bring out the attractiveness of the lady’s countenance.
Seasonally, a bonnet is even used at Easter to accentuate the joy of the resurrection–“with all the fringe upon it.”
Since I should not control what people wear on their heads, it would be wrong of me to insist that a female be submissive by covering her noggin, or object to the hiding of her skull beneath an adornment because I feel it is chauvinistic.
There is just a great power in leaving people alone.
- If they are unhappy, show them happiness.
- If they are happy, be happy with them.
Otherwise, you could quickly be accused of being a bee in their bonnet.
