    Just had a moment today I went for a walk and as usual I was wearing my Hijab (head covering) and a long top which covers my arms and I had two layers of clothing two tops and a long skirt. It was so hot and what pisses me off is how Muslim Men can just wear shorts and a top only and flip flops how the ****kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk is that fair ? I really want to enjoy the weather without being covered head to toe it's so hot.................How is it fair that Muslim Men have it so easy ????
    It pissesssss me off, I saw some Muslim women in burqas like wth would you wear that???
    You were wearing two layers and two tops underneath? You might have felt cooler if you only had one top underneath.

    Dont be so strictly dressed if you dont want to. It will make you go crazy in the long run.
    A hijab and a normal dress should be fine. Otherwise just dress how you like and be happy.

    It's called social norms and we all have them, men and women.
    So it's not unfair, you just need to grow up and realize everyone has problems, not just entitled snowflakes like you

    No why should I I'm muslim and proud
    If you have a problem with female modesty you're not a Muslim (or for that matter, a Christian, a Jew, or a Hindu).

    Convert to atheism or feminism etc. Then you can join the sisterhood and whine about how unfair the world is.

    Traditional religion is not for you.

    No one (I hope!) Is forcing you to be a Muslim. If it is really annoying you, convery to another religion or don't following the strict teachings of islam. It's your life, live it on your terms

    This thread is not about me wanting to leave Islam so I don't know why some people on here are suggesting this for me

    "It's called social norms and we all have them, men and women.

    First of all no one should need to follow social norms as long as they don't actually break the law. Second of all, it is more than fair to question social norms (especially Muslim ones). Thirdly, there is absolutely no reason to attack someone and belittle them just because they have a problem with something.

    My mum will be upset if I do bless her she's even pushing me to wear the burqa because as she says just a hijab isn't enough for her
    I'm sorry. Does Islam revolve around her, or around Allah?

    Hijab is not compulsory, wear what you want. Go out in a light maxi with a chiffon shirt, or something.

    You could also challenge secular law. Why is it illegal for women to be topless in public but not men? UK law is sexist af.

    You don't have to wear it, you can still be Muslim, pray, follow the pillars of Islam and worship Allah, but do it your way.
    What's the point of following a religion when you're picking and choosing which rules to ignore.

    I'd just become atheist. Either that or continue believing in whatever god but not label myself as muslim.

    I am sure every Muslim girl that would want to do this, can, because it's not like none of them live in tightly knit communities were pressure (or worse) would be exerted :rolleyes:

    No Muslim is a perfect Muslim, but they can still received love and forgiveness.

    The OT tells you to cover your hair. There must have been Israelites back in the day that went through similar problems as OP (if the book is true ofc).

    What does the bible say about Women dress code? From my understanding the bible was changed a couple of times and christian Women were required to cover their hair and dress modestly

    You can't choose to follow a religion this strict and still have the right to complain about it being unfair.

    Men don't have to cover themselves as much, because the Qu'ran was written by men- Oh, wait... Sorry, I mean it's because Allah prefers men over women, and it would be really inconvenient for men
    to have to learn how to control where they gaze, their sexual urges n' stuff.

    No ones making you where such clothing. If you insist on wearing it you're hardly in a position to moan.

    1. Yeah, no one needs to follow them, so why does OP feel the need to make a thread on this. I am sure she knows she has every right to wear whatever she wants, the solution is right in front of her so why does she need to make this post?
    2. Ok, it is fair to question social norms, but I'm pretty sure everyone agrees that Islam is, to a certain degree at least, misogynistic. But I don't see how making a thread on TSR can change anything.
    3. If you strip this thread down to it's core, it's just one person complaining that they have it unfair in life. The way OP stated her opinion sounded very arrogant.
    "How is it fair that Muslim Men have it so easy ????" Yeah... what about racial profiling, because Muslim men just love waiting twice as long to get through security.
    Everyone has struggles they face, it's a simple case of the grass being greener on the other side.
