To answer you question: Why should men force her to cover it for him. For who are you covering your bodies? Who has put the shame of revealing your body in you? Who indoctrinated you? Who bribed you with the promise of paradise?Who told you that there no women who experience this as oppression? Why are you fighting for the right to look like a nun while you know it looks dreadful on you? (some exceptions for artistic purposes)Also, can you be more specific on who’s forcing you to show your body? This message in your image implies that some one is forcing you to take all your clothes off. And furthermore, taking off your hijab does not equal showing your body.If you want to have the right to wear a hijab, would you muslimas also be so kind and fight for gay marriage. Love is not a one-way street you know ;)But hey in a way, if it does come down to not being allowed to wear what ever the fuck you want to wear then hell yeah I will even fight for your right to wear a frog suit in public if this makes you feel more comfortable in the sense that you feel covered. I just don’t see what the point is in covering the face and hair. I also don’t see for whom this is needed. But I would understand if comfort is what your looking for. As long as you don’t impose this idea and religion onto others, then I will fight for your right to wear a nun’s suit. Just make sure you guys fight for gay marriage, okay?Oh and one last request, muslims. Can you tell your so-called brothers and sisters to stop calling non-muslim women whores. It’s discrimination by definition, it’s degrading and it’s a reason why your religion is becoming a disgrace. “Ah but allah is right, non-muslim women are whores! But hey! Just because you’re wearing a piece of cloth on your head doesn’t mean your suddenly not a whore anymore. No, you’re a whore with a piece of cloth on your head.” ~ Hans Teeuwen

Oh, this is going to be good. Western feminists STRIKE AGAIN

To answer you question: Why should men force her to cover it for him. For who are you covering your bodies? Who has put the shame of revealing your body in you? Who indoctrinated you? Who bribed you with the promise of paradise?

Western feminist tells other Muslim women in a condescending tone about how they are being indoctrinated even though living in a patriarchy makes every woman pressured to be wearing something in a certain way in order to be good towards society
My Muslim mother does not cover for my father. In fact, she doesn’t cover at all. She never asked me to cover as well, and no, Islam didn’t put the shame of revealing my body. You know what did? Slut-shaming Western culture. The ones that state that I’m a slut if I wear short shorts, the ones that call me a whore because I may have a sex life, the ones that deny me the right to contraception because how dare I spread my legs.
And if you think it’s ignorance that I am calling you a Western feminist, that’s what you are, is it not? Jesus christ, it’s not ignorance to tell your condescending ass what you are.

Who told you that there no women who experience this as oppression? Why are you fighting for the right to look like a nun while you know it looks dreadful on you? (some exceptions for artistic purposes)

Ah, internalized misogyny, the same thing that you are trying to fight! How dare you tell someone that their clothing looks dreadful on them? How dare you even tell someone that they look like a nun and that hijab only looks good for artistic purposes when it is something more to them. Promoting fascist beauty standards is totally feminist, guys!

Also, can you be more specific on who’s forcing you to show your body? This message in your image implies that some one is forcing you to take all your clothes off. And furthermore, taking off your hijab does not equal showing your body.

Uh, you? When you say stuff like “I LOVE THE FEELING OF MY HAIR HOW CAN IT NOT BE LIBERATION FOR YOUUU” and “GOD IT LOOKS DREADFUL ON YOU TAKE IT OFF” this is what you look like rn:

Taking off someone’s hijab is like forcefully taking off a piece of clothing off your body, which is WRONG. Hair is part of the body, and yeah, for Muslim women, it is like showing your body! And what is wrong with that? Why does a woman have to be wearing nothing over their hair in order to be considered free?
Consider this: Who has taught you to promote fascist beauty standards, slut-shaming, and ridicule towards women who does not dress like you? Who has taught you to be indoctrinated towards believing that sexism is only about liberation for women that are just like you? 

If you want to have the right to wear a hijab, would you muslimas also be so kind and fight for gay marriage. Love is not a one-way street you know ;)

OH MY GOD DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE QUEER MUSLIMAHS
DID YOU KNOW I AM COMPLETELY SHOCKED BY THIS QUESTION
I MEAN REALLY WHAT IS THIS

But hey in a way, if it does come down to not being allowed to wear what ever the fuck you want to wear then hell yeah I will even fight for your right to wear a frog suit in public if this makes you feel more comfortable in the sense that you feel covered. I just don’t see what the point is in covering the face and hair. I also don’t see for whom this is needed. But I would understand if comfort is what your looking for. As long as you don’t impose this idea and religion onto others, then I will fight for your right to wear a nun’s suit. Just make sure you guys fight for gay marriage, okay?

Ah, after telling hijabis that their nun’s suit is dreadful looking, you can totally wear what you want, except she will think you’re still oppressed!

Oh and one last request, muslims. Can you tell your so-called brothers and sisters to stop calling non-muslim women whores. It’s discrimination by definition, it’s degrading and it’s a reason why your religion is becoming a disgrace. “Ah but allah is right, non-muslim women are whores! But hey! Just because you’re wearing a piece of cloth on your head doesn’t mean your suddenly not a whore anymore. No, you’re a whore with a piece of cloth on your head.” ~ Hans Teeuwen

you had a point until you said the bolded. did you realize that misogyny is a part of your life as much as muslimahs? who knew! It’s like the patriarchy doesn’t affect anyone except for those poor brown muslimahs who call everyone whores because they don’t wear what we’re wearing! Who knew that slut-shaming occurred everywhere instead of just Muslims! I’m an ex-Muslim, I’ve been called a whore multiple fucking times, but yet I don’t blame Islam for it, because you know what the real reason behind all this sexism is? Patriarchy. 
Jesus christ, take your misogynist Western ass and educate yourself before pestering Muslimahs with all these pointless questions about how sexist they are. 

We interrupt out regularly scheduled programming with another of Juthika’s brilliant…brilliancies.
Also, OP: umm, yeah, not all Muslims women go around “calling non-muslim women whores” because HELLO THERE! Would you like proof? I’ve said so multiple times on this blog, screamed it at enough people already. It’s not part of Islam. Islam preaches equality and tolerance and love and acceptance. It’s just the way the patriarchy is set. Just like with queer people (like Juthika said, there’s queer Muslims too), please stop generalizing. Many thanks.
As for covering my head- yeah, I cover my head. You know what? My hair is beautiful and long and wonderful, and mine. MINE MINE MINE. And I can do whatever I want with it. AND IT IS MY CHOICE TO COVER IT. AS IT IS A LOT OF OTHER HIJABIS TO COVER THEIRS. You don’t have to understand it.It is out form of liberation- when we are covered, we force the world to deal with our brain, not our looks. Not on how beautiful or not we are. But on our intelligence.
I don’t understand who other women choose to reveal everything. I still accept it. I don’t have to understand it, just accept it, it is their form of freedom and liberation, fine. I ask that you accept our choice to dress the way we like too.

“Why are you fighting for the right to look like a nun while you know it looks dreadful on you? (some exceptions for artistic purposes)” So… do you go around telling nuns to take off their habits (that’s what they’re called, not “suits”)? They are women too. Also, I happen to quite like the way hijabs look, sorry, you aren’t the only one entitled to an opinion, OP. But hey! Men can be so oppressive, can’t they? Forcing women to cover their bodies and all. So come on girl, take that blouse off and let everyone see your lovely breasts. Women in Europe go topless all the time! There’s no shame in it!
