    2. @2 I agree with you. @2a Would be cuter with a full burqa no?

    3. 2b./2a> it's most definitely not a sign of oppression, it would be wise to become personally educated on the subject rather than being spoon-fed by the media, you have a mind and free will, now use it to get out of the ignorant bubble you call your lives

    5. As an educated muslim woman, my hijab isn't exactly liberating.

  5. The thing with a hijab is that its based on understanding. People view Islam as being an oppressed religion, others understand it as a different view for religion.
    Being Muslim myself I wear the hijab, and honestly I find it liberating. I wear it because I enjoy the meaning behind it. People get to know you for your personality, not your outer appearance/looks (although our shit society does it either way). You are able to project yourself in a manner where people don't see you as potential gf material or as a sex object (personally when I talk to someone the last thing on my mind is freaking gender). Besides, its so that only one guy gets to see you and one guy only - some life this idea others don't its a freaking personal preference. Seriously people, hijabis are just like normal people, I can see how people find it oppressing and I can see why people don't. It's like someone saying they like blue shirts over black shirts. Get over this stupid oppression topic, and yo if people like hijab great to you, and if you don't great to you too.

    1. If you think you need to cover your hair so people can get to know you and not view you as a sex object, you have a very sick and filthy view of reality.

    2. 5a. thats your view and opinion, so thats okay. Everyone has their own view not just on this subject but everything in life. So get over it and move on.

      Delete
    3. oh yeah, 5a. you may think that but not everyone does. and its not about hair, but your body as well. get yo facts straight fooooooool.

    4. @5.a
      let's take yourpremise and assume your right. Why then are there woman wearing a hijab, with makeup and perfectly trimmed eye brows?
      and don't tell me they don't exist because I have seen them

      Delete
    5. haha 5.d didn't read 5's contribution, I think that's what 5a is trying to say, you have all these women covering themselves fanatically in the name of modesty but then they have a full face of make up and manicured facial hair but... at least they've covered their head? so stupid

      Delete
    6. @5.e I understand what you mean, and if that were their thought processes it would indeed be silly. My opinion still follows more closely that of @14

      Delete
  6. @5a You may not agree, I don't either, but why does her view have to be sick and filthy? She feels better wearing it, and it's really not that different from other girls wearing loose fitting clothes so that they're not objectified. Of course, ideally, anyone could wear whatever they feel like and no one would be ojectified, but that's another story. My point is that she should be able to express her opinion without being insulted. And she should be able to wear whatever she wants without being judged for it.

    2. I completely agree with you!

    3. Nobody wins here. Muslim women have a "choice" to wear it and objective bystanders have a real choice to voice an opinion. The religion of Islam is beautiful, but, the culture leaves much to be desired.

  7. 6 here. I agree that bystanders have a choice to voice an opinion (as do muslim women), but there is a way to voice an opinion without insulting anyone. As I said earlier, I don't agree with 5 on everything she wrote, but I absolutely believe that she has the right to express her opinion without being told that her view of the world is "sick and filthy". I understand that this issue is emotional for a lot of people, but we should be able to discuss it without insulting anyone. But I guess this is omguw, so why do I even bother...

    1. 5 here, see its a matter of understanding is all. you don't have to agree or disagree understanding the point of view is all that is wanted at hand. LOL yeah but hey saying any good is better than saying no good! You're awesome 6, thanks for standing for justice for people!

  8. Guys...it's just a piece of cloth that someone wears on their head. Either you understand the significance of it/accept it or just get over it. They're free to take it off if they wish to do so. If a non- muslim were to wear a head scarf/bandana - it's totally acceptable. Just think of both as the same if the significance of a hijab goes over your head.

    1. hahaha they're not free to take it off, that's incredibly naive

      Delete
    2. ^ Yes they are, practicing hijab is a choice. Nowhere in the Qur'an does it say that women must cover their heads at all times. It only is mandatory when you pray. I actually read the whole Qur'an, maybe you should do the same before you call someone else naive on a topic that you don't know about yourself.

    3. Because their friends and family don't factor into that decision right 8 b? Think critically, that's why you're in university. Qu'estion everything.

  9. Just let people believe what they want to believe. Don't hate a religion because of one man. Don't hate a race for the color of their skin. It's 2013. About time we stopped all this prejudice and just....lived happily.

  10. So many hijab-haters here, it makes me sad. The girl wants to wear it, let her wear it. You are nobody to judge her choice. Her hijab is not harming you in anyway. You live in Canada. Open your eyes to multiculturalism. Open your eyes to what this country stands for.

  11. Why does anything even remotely bringing up Islam need to be negative? That is not the point here, but people need to become opinionated at the most inorganic times. Can we not just appreciate this nice MC of a person with a wonderful smile?

  12. everyone is so focused on the hijab, but the real thing we should be focusing on is the fact that she has the most beautiful smile, that's a sign of oppression, because men like woman who smile, so they must smile to get a guy.

    1. @12 women smile because their happy not because a man told them too

    2. @2.b I was joking, but that was the point women wear a hijab because they like it, if they didn't they would just not wear it

      Delete
  13. not all of them like it. They like it because their families and their society brain washed them into liking it

    ReplyDelete
  14. they are brainwashed just like women are brainwashed into liking to wear a bra right

    I am christian but not a practicing one. I wear a golden chain with a cross on it simply because my grandma gave it to me a a gift when I turned 18. and I wear it because I like it, and what it means to me is not something religious, but rather the importance of my fammily

    I belive that if a women likes to wear her hijab she should be more than welcomed to do so. after all it should not matter to her what meaning society has for the hijab but rather her own meaning.

    If she truelly doesn't like it however she should know she is in a "free" country where no one should be able to force you to wear something you don't want to
