The black bed sheets and sandals you wear around on a hot sunny day like today are designed to make you appear less human to anybody who even dares think about looking at you. It's an advert for Don't look at me, I am a walking black bed sheet ghost living in the free world of democratic rights.

The nun probably won't get shunned by her family and community if she didn't wear that....................

Honestly, I don't think some girls understand that wearing a hijab makes people look at you more. My eye is certainly draw to them more, just like other people have told me the same. So it achieves the opposite in my opinion.

I don't have a problem with people choosing to cover up for religious reasons, but I don't understand why they go for something so bland.

Cover up like this and live a little.

They wear the clothes for different reasons, obviously.

The western hijab wearer has a number of messages to give: I am different from you; I hold specific superstitious beliefs, which set me above you; do not approach me as I fear you cannot do anything other than treat me as a sex object; I do not wish a normal friendly relationship to develop into something more sexual; I may have been bullied into wearing this by my friends and family.

The nun has devoted her life to her superstitious beliefs and has a similar message, though she is a nun voluntarily.

The medical professional or laboratory worker is merely protecting her own health and that of the patient from infection or contagion and the only message being sent is one of professional competence and care.

Why do you speak as though every girl who wears it was forced by their parents. I know loads of Muslim girls that dont wear it.

Well I know a great deal of hijab-wearing Muslims personally, and I can say that you are wrong. Their message is simple: I am a Muslim. That is all. Some women are forced, but many more wear it out of choice. The don't fear being treated as a sex object, although it is true that they 'do not wish a normal friendly relationship to develop into something more sexual' as adultery and fornication are against Islam's teachings of sex within marriage. They don't feel different, they don't feel pressured, they don't feel superior - if anything they feel proud that they choose what they wear rather than mindlessly conforming to fashion as so many others do.

In a free world, one is free to wear 'black bed sheets' and white duvets and yellow pillows. and I respect their right to. So don't bring this "free and democratic" nonsense.

My only problem is the societal pressures that many (not all, probably not even most westerners - maybe) muslimahs feel to wear it. and the insistent that one type of clothing is inherently better than another and that makes one a better person...

Also, the claim that its for modesty whilst wearing designer hijabs and latest abayas and Maybelline make up and ... yeah

Also, all men will look at you sexually if one doesn't ...?

Also, dat sweet wrapper analogy...

if anything they feel proud.
And pride does not involve a feeling of superiority?

No, it doesn't.

Pride: 'A feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of one's close associates, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.'
Superiority: 'A supercilious manner or attitude.'

A nun is a "professional". It's like a uniform.

And when was the last time you saw a nun? It was at least 5 years ago for me.

All parents have the right to teach their religious values to their children and let them go when older. This happens with Christian people to. All girls I know wear it out of choice.

What happened to being allowed to wear what you want in this society? 🤔 Or does that only apply when dressing (objectively) less modest? 🤔
