La Source des Femmes (2011)

literally everything she said is historically accurate though

the concept of “hijab” existed long before Islam was founded. in pre islamic arabia and throughout the region, women regardless of religion would cover their hair and it was often a symbol of class (other than the concept of covering hair being cultural in christianity and judaism) 

women who were higher class and were from a wealthy family covered their hair to distinguish themselves from poorer classes

if wasn’t until after the founding of islam where covering hair was incorporated into muslim culture as “hijab”. there is no mention of hijab in the quran but there is a strong emphasis on modesty. there is however an explicit line in the quran directed towards men:

In Chapter 24 known as an-Nur (the Light), in verse 30, Allah commands Prophet Muhammad as follows:

قُلْ لِلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ يَغُضُّوْا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَ يَحْفَظُوْا فُرُوْجَهُمْ, ذَلِكَ أَزْكَى لَهُمْ.

“Say to the believing men that: they should cast down their glances and guard their private parts (by being chaste). This is better for them.”

This is a command to Muslim men that they should not lustfully look at women (other than their own wives); and in order to prevent any possibility of temptation, they are required to cast their glances downwards. This is known as “hijab of the eyes”.

First and foremost I deeply apologize to all of you for this. Second of all, WHY.

So my mom is shopping in a supermarket, wearing a full hijab and jilbab (commonly misnamed as a burka) and the whole time she is there, this kid is staring at her. Won’t stop staring. Just looking with wide-eyed shock. The lil feller isn’t any older than four. She doesn’t think much of it, she is used to far worse than just a few stares. Until the very end when the kid and his mom are behind her in the checkout, and he leans up and whispers loudly: “I LOVE YOU BATMAN”

Can you give an example about cultural appropriation? Sorry Rara, saw your answer to another question I thought was interesting. ^-^ (by CassandraCalderon87

That's cool :D Okay, for example, a non-Muslim wearing a hijab/niqab as an casual accessory without respecting the religion or acknowledging the hardships Muslimahs face in their everyday lives because they wear something that represents their religion. When non-Muslims wear hijabs for fun, it's like blankly taking something and eventually making the hijab lose its meaning in a way.
It's a different case when said non-Muslim is ASKED to wear a hijab for a certain occasion (e.g. as a social experiment, or when she's invited for an event that requires her to dress like that). It's because there is an invitation and she's only wearing the hijab for that occasion.

This rule also applies to bindis, native american headgears, african tribal clothing, etc and their respective religious/ethnic cultures.

Thanks for explaining. I completely agree with you on this all, agreed. It's like how I'm a hispanic, I sometimes find it offensive insulting how the fashion industry with non-hispanics like Gwen Stefani, Nicki Minaj who aren't hispanic think Chola Cholita is a trend when it isn't.

Chola/Cholita's a feminist-personal movement started by actual Mexican/Latina/Hispanic women/girls in the barrios of L.A. who found it not just as a "gang stereotype" statement but way of feminist-meet escape in their culture from everyday way of life, dealing with having to be strong, etc.
Perfect example in my own hispanic culture, I can understand what your saying as well about your culture and appropriation. :) Fill free to ask me questions as well. (by CassandraCalderon87)

mmmhm... we learn something new everyday :D are there pictures/videos of gwen & nicki going chola/cholita? cuz i havent seen them yet.
thanks for the explanation :] i tried looking for an article about Chola/Cholita but i just found a wikipedia article about Cholo. and in Urbandictionary the definition doesnt really describe what you just described.

yep, how you felt is basically how i, as a muslim, felt too when non-muslims wear hijab, qamis, etc. (unless theyre asked to) just cuz it's "trending" and lol i'll be damned if they start taking bits of stuff touching the subjects indonesians are sensitive about.
thanks :)

Here's a link to it. The article written: http://www.vice.com/read/the-history-of-the-chola-456 (by CassandraCalderon87)

awesome. it's worth the read, thanks. like i said, similar to random people wearing Che Guevara shirts without following his visions. Thats what capitalism does to you :D also i still cant believe that racist Mexican-themed party exists, i facepalmed at the latter costumes mentioned.

So did I. It's like, okay it's one thing if someone wears a sombero mexican hat and poncho for Halloween because that doesn't bug me. But the whole having a Chola-Cholo party when you're not hispanic/mexican really pisses me off. That is racist. (by CassandraCalderon87)

Exactly. I dont mind if people go to parties wearing batik or kebaya either, but I'd be damned if they made a "trending look" out of R A Kartini, one of Indonesia's well-known feminist figures. (idk why I said that, maybe cuz 21st of April is Kartini Day)

friendly reminder that since it’s getting hot out, people of all sizes and genders can wear whatever they want to keep themselves cool and comfortable, and you are, under no circumstances, allowed to shame them or sexualize them for it.

+ fucking respect hijabis and people who choose to cover up

To the dozen anons who have asked about what’s under my hijab - since it obviously couldn’t be hair…it’s one of these:

• snakes
• 5lbs of candy
• a bear
• Tiny elves making cookies
• a vortex where all my powers and life force are kept 
• a teleporter
• nothing. I keep it covered because there’s literally a black hole on top of my head

You forgot Voldemort. Also, I am hiding Voldemort under my hijab

It's hard being pretty
drew this a few days before Eid but this is meant to be an Eid comic.

Anyways, what this character is doing is exactly is how i feel when I tried wearing the hijab on my own (cuz usually my sisters help me put it on or i just wore one of those instant hijabs), and not just on Eid, pretty much during any occasion that calls for it.

Eid Mubarak to all of you who are celebrating :D

one time a boy tried to pull my hijab off

i punched him in the face

closed fist, short swing, right in the jaw

there is a point where you stop trying to educate people and start making the consequences of their racist bullshit real fuckin clear.

International Youth Muslim Brotherhood:
Hijab first in British parliament

A 16-year-old girl is thought to have become the first person to speak from the House of Commons dispatch box in the British parliament while wearing a hijab, The Times newspaper reported Saturday.
Sumaiya Karim a biology, chemistry, history and maths student, was speaking as the Youth Parliament held its annual session in the lower house´s chamber, where Britain's MP's gather.

Karim, from Buckingham, west of London, said: "Wearing the hijab was my own choice."
The Muslim hijab scarf covers the head and neck but leaves the face exposed.
British ministers and opposition shadow ministers stand at the dispatch boxes when they address the Commons.
The democratically elected Youth Parliament members, aged 11 to 18, are elected to represent the views of young people in their area to government.
