The hijab is one of a few headdresses worn by Muslim women. From what I can tell, it is supposed to hide the femininity of the woman. Because I'm sure as a Muslim, it's going to all be the woman's fault if a man acts improperly due to attraction.
I don't agree with it, but hey, it's their religion and it doesn't hurt others, so have at it if you want to wear it.
Let's face it. The hijab is NOT a hip fashion accessory that people would willingly love to wear. So they're wearing it for religious reasons. But if you're going to wear it, don't be a hypocrite. I see more and more girls acting contrary to the whole point.
On the way to take my kids to school and back, I used to see a girl waiting for a bus. She always wore a hijab. But she also wore skin-tight clothes. You could see every curve. And quite frankly, IMO, for a woman with a good body, that's a bigger turn-on than seeing her hair. Isn't that sort of contrary to the whole purpose of the hijab? But..., hello? Skin tight clothes? Not exactly hiding your femininity. She also had a lot of makeup. Also, making yourself look more feminine and attractive. WTF?
Last week, at my kids's middle school they had a talent show. One of the girls had a Muslim sounding name and was wearing a hijab as well. She chose to sing "One Last Time" by Ariana Grande. The song is about a girl who wants to sleep with her ex one last time. While it doesn't specifically say that, the lyrics do say she wants to be the one to bring him home and have him wake up in her arms. First of all, I'm no prude, and I know the kids hear worse. But this is inappropriate for a Middle School talent show. And by a girl wearing a hijab no less. Showing to the world, her religious conviction, she sings the most inappropriate song at the show.
These young women are so committed to their faith, they wear a hijab, but then wear skin tight clothes and sing songs about having sex. I don't get it.
If you're rebelling against your faith, fine. I get that. But while you're at it, why not start by taking off the hijab?
