i see these women around own occasionally.

they are white
wear a small triangle headscarf

long dresses ala little house on the prairie.

all have v. long straight hair

its the family of triangle wearing headscarfs on the girlies that stikes me as being a religeon thing

I went to school with some girls who were plymouth brethren.

Think they wore ribbons in their hair too, like hanging down.

There's another lot that do it as well, something like Biederman Community? It's all communal living, no TV and domestic slavery for women so slipping the young girls the occasional bit of feminist literature/music magazines/coca cola is probably a very good thing to do.

Friend said it was eerie

Do you have to live in Plymouth?

I might do a new one. "Oldham Brethren"

Must wear shell suits
Must have overkill of grease in hair
Must only ever worship at McDonalds
Must insert one swear word in every sentence
Free loving is a must
Don't get a job if you can get benefits
