    I don't think anyone living in London cares. Even I don't. You're just being paranoid, that's all.
    Especially when it comes to public transport, Londoners are famous for looking into your souls rudely.

    That's good! Hope your confidence stays with you
    No idea why Londoners look so rude in general, I guess its just a way to avoid any interactions haha

    I live in london and everytime im on the tube to work/school (in the mornings and evenings when i leave), I feel like the people on the train (who are mostly white) stare at me and even feel like maybe they think i'm a threat to them :/ idk if im being paranoid but do other muslim girls (who wear hijab) feel like this?
    I guess i just feel uneasy and the odd one out. I live in a multi-cultural area so as soon as im in my local area, i feel automatically at ease
    I dont think you are paranoid. Wearing a hijab makes you a target, just like wearing Jedi robes or a bikini.
