February 1st has been designated World Hijab Day. It’s the day the world gets subjected to virtue-signaling, privileged white Western women who think they’re accomplishing something by dressing in the degrading body-bags that the patriarchal Muslim World imposes on women. Every time that happens I run this reminder:
UNTIL SUCH TIME AS ALL MUSLIM WOMEN ARE FREE TO MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICE ON THE MATTER, IT IS IRRELEVANT HOW MANY MUSLIM “STEPFORD WIVES” COME FORWARD TO PRETEND MUSLIM WOMEN ALL WEAR THOSE OUTFITS WILLINGLY.
I’m not just pro-choice on abortion – I’m pro-choice on the clothing issue, too. Privileged white leftists are too hypocritical for that. Especially given how they like to indulge in Handmaid’s Tale cosplay. Yeah, as if they would EVER have the courage to stand up to genuinely dangerous theocrats.
AS WELL AS HERE
AND HERE ARE QUOTES FROM OTHER MUSLIM WOMEN ABOUT THE HIJAB (link below): The names used are aliases to protect the women from harm by Muslim misogynists.
“Nadia,” a 23-year old Sunni Muslim, is divorced and hails from Morocco. Nadia says, “I wore the hijab in Morocco, because a woman without a headscarf there is considered to be immoral. In Islam, women’s bodies are awrah (shame). So, they must cover up, unlike men. Also, I wore the hijab, because it was imposed on me by my husband in Morocco.”
Nadia’s friend and roommate “Salima” is 49 and also Moroccan. When Nadia added that she removed the hijab because she was not convinced of its importance and because it was imposed on her by her ex-husband, Salima commented curtly, “Hijab is a shroud a Muslim woman is forced to wear alive, until they put on her shrouds when she is dead.”
“Fatima” is a 47-year old Shiite and refugee from Iran. In her teenage years she was married off to a cousin and is now divorced. Fatima said, “The Iranian government forces women to wear the veil, even though most girls reject it. However, we cannot protest, because we would face imprisonment, or may be killed. There is a lot of torture in prison…. So, we have to accept the hijab and keep our mouths shut.”
“Khadija” is 33, and a former Sunni Muslim from Jordan. Even in her country of origin, she was a rebel for refusing to wear the hijab. Khadija commented, “The headscarf is imposed on girls by parents and relatives in Jordan. But my family gave me the freedom to wear any kind of clothes, unlike all other parents. In most Jordanian families it is compulsory for girls, from the age of 6 years. Some parents use violence with their children; like a friend of mine. Her mother forced her to wear the hijab since the age of nine. She had to go to school wearing the hijab, but removed it there. Her brother discovered that, beat her severely, and her family prevented her from going to school for good.”
“Aisha” is 26, a Sunni, and came from Iraq at the age of 13 as a refugee. She agrees that families are often the most significant pressure to wear the hijab. She notes, “I was forced to wear the hijab by my mother at an early age. She removed me from school, just in order to prevent me from seeing any male classmates. Later, my mother married me off at the age of 14 to an Iraqi American 25 years my senior. “
