I wear a hijab because I want to. I was never forced by my parents to wear one, I've never felt ''pressured'' or ''forced'' into it. I made that decision for myself. Just know that there is hijabis out there that wear it by choice.

Girl wears reveling dress. "Its okay, we live in a free world. She can wear what ever she wants."
Girl wears Hijab. "Oh poor soul, she must be forced and pressurized by her parents."

I think the difference is that only parents can force a girl to wear a hijab, whilst all the family, as well as friends and neighbours can pressurise her to wear it. The result is that she can then convince herself that she wears it by "choice"; she wouldn't be able to think that if her parents had ordered her to do so.
I agree.

I think most are through tbh. Especially the ones that have been wearing since young.
Haha, that is really not true, trust me. I am a Muslim, been in many circles, I am part of a religious, progressive family with only a handful wearing a Hijab, my parents prefer me not to wear the hijab because they don't like the idea of me standing out, I still dress modestly, out of my own free will.

Why is this so centered around you? I am speaking generally.

I've been wondering, what was Mo' (pbuh)/Allah/whoever thinking when he made their 'bedsheets' black?

Black objects are brilliant at absorbing heat and in the hot Arabic climate... It's like he had a craving for KFM (kentucky fried moslem) or something. He could've at least made them white, at least then they'd 'reflect' (I'm guessing none of you want to hear about how the excitation of atoms/molecules works) most of it. So much for Quranic science.
I don't know for sure, I asked this question and only sensible answer I got is, you can wear bikini underneath and put on that black sheet and walk in public, however you cannot do the same with white bedsheet (assuming it's same material). If you wear bikini and put on just white bedsheet, boom everybody almost can tell what you are wearing underneath.

What I heard is, in Arab countries, women dress short sleeves, and modern clothing underneath and put that black veil, go to women only meetings, where they can take of their veil and "be modern"

You guys need to stop acting so dense gosh.
It's not always about you, no one is saying that every hijabi wears it by force, but there are some. Stop acting so oblivious, it's annoying.

I believe that the hijab is ok. Its your choice at the end of the day to wear one.

Context is key. Some people although these days, it's rare are forcibly put into that position of wearing hijab. Maybe not so much in the westernised world. But in places like africa or afghanistan where fgm is prevalent. Its centred on the view of women. Women are viewed as cattle almost. A posession. Here, in the west, women are viewed by the mainstream as equals. Distinctive perceptions.

The majority of Muslims in the West do not wear a hijab (not that it is a good or bad thing) and I was giving my own experiences as an example.

It must be literally true worldwide if you think about it. Roughly half of Moslems are men who do not wear it, and plenty of women don't; neither do young girls. Hence most Moslems don't wear it.

But I am talking about women specifically. Most Muslim girls I do know do wear the hijab.

Why do girls who wear hijabs wear makeup? Defeats the point? And none of 'it makes them confident" bs because make up will only attract guys. Would they rather be confident or be a good muslim where they dont get attention from the opposite gender? at the end of the day only god can judge

, moslems, as you like to put it because theyre all evil aren they)?
How does using an older spelling mean they are all evil? Have you consulted a dictionary?

In any event, I have not posted anything that incites or expresses hatred against Moslems.

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.
HI! I feel totally oppressed by people like YOU who make my decisions seem like I've been forced to make them. Sisters like me go through this all around the world. STOP. I hate hypocritical supremist who believe Muslims will always be inferior … DONT tell me I'm wrong. And I'm guessing your also the type who believes women shouldn't have rights? mhmm… RIGGHHHTTT. And you probably support Donald trump too huh? Listen to me. OR don't not my concern. But I choose to wear my ABAYA and my SCARF its my choice. If a women can walk out in a bikini and not be criticized I can walk out in a abaya and be proud so yes. I do have an opinion and my mom wasn't the one forcing me to say this either in case you were wondering. Now my middle finger salutes you. Goodbye x
