    Take it off if you want to.
    Don't take it off if you don't want to. It's as simple as that
    exactly, why is she making a big deal out of nothing. Her sister gets wolf whistled at? yeah i'm white and i get that all the time, all you do is ignore it lol. If her mums fine with it then who gives a ****?

    FML guys I took it off and went to the enrolment at uni again. It was the worst. I saw EVERYONE I knew. They stared at me and one of the guys I know came up to me and said wtf happened to you..I just wanted to crawl into a hole because of the embarassment. I caved in and put my scarf on in the toilets

    My sisters say I should take it off. They say that in the long term its more of a hinderance. Personally, I'm in two minds. Part of me wants to take it off but another part wants to just keep it on because life is easier that way. A friend of mine said to me that my argument to keep it on never once mentioned religion so clearly I'm not wearing it for god so I should take it off but idk what to do guys. I still haven't uploaded a uni photo for my enrolment tommorrow because I don't know if should upload one with or without my scarf

    Well it was always going to be difficult at first, but if you can get past the initial transition then it should begin to get a lot easier

    I've been following this thread despite having nothing to contribute (no relative knowledge) and checked in to see what you had decided. That sounds like such an awful experience and I'm so sorry you had to face that. I hope you won't let this one experience completely deter you altogether if it's what you want to do. If you don't want to wear it then others will just have to get used to seeing you without it. If they have a problem with it then that's their problem; not yours. Be brave. Best of luck. :hugs:

    PS: that guy deserves a slap.

    It's none of his business what you choose to do. He deserves a slap for being so nosy and nasty. Ignore it OP. It's your choice and at the end of the day your wellbeing matters the most. Not the opinions of some judgemental Muslims from your community

    He said it as if he was sneering at me. Like 'eww wtf happened to you' sort of thing. Then the other hijabis looked over at me and they stared wide eyed at me and I just felt so small so I put it on in the toilets

    You can be friend with non-hijabis. We're funnier and would congratulate you for breaking your chains. :cool:

    I'm not a particulary devout muslim
    it's not mandated by your religion. it's just based on your culture which is surrounded by misogyny

    This is so sad

    Don't let peer pressure and jealousy prevent you from making your own choices.

    And is someone approaches you to question negativity about the way you are dressed report them to your Uni

    I'm so so so scared tho. People are 100% going to stare and talk about me behind my back
    Who cares what people think or say, as long as you are comfortable in yourself.
