‘My Hijab Has Nothing To Do With Oppression. It’s A Feminist Statement’

Not all Muslim women cover their bodies. Not all Muslim women who do are forced to do so. Like freelance writer Hanna Yusuf, who chooses to wear a hijab in a daily act of feminism. In a new video for The Guardian, Yusuf challenges stereotypes by setting out to reclaim the choice to wear a hijab as “a feminist statement.”

For more on on how the hijab helps women reclaim their bodies watch the full video here.

Random Headcanon: Link’s androgyny isn’t just an artefact of the Zelda franchise’s art direction - and neither is it particularly unusual. Sexual dimorphism among Hylians is legitimately much lower than among real-world humans; if Link and Zelda swapped clothes, you’d never be able to tell who was the girl and who was the boy.

Consequently, Hylian society depends heavily on clothing to establish gender roles, to the extent that it’s a severe faux pas to question someone’s gender presentation. If they’re dressed like a girl, then they’re a girl - even if they were dressed like a boy yesterday. That’s why nobody ever remarks upon the fact that Zelda and her heroic alter-ego Sheik are different genders; it’d be gauche at best to bring it up.

Watch: This girl just performed English-paper-worthy analysis on why the girls’ clothes section totally sucks compared to the boys’

8-year-old feminist Daisy Edmonds is here with a message about just how not here she is for mega-corporations still pushing out gender-controlling product to her and her girl-power-proud friends. And the way she decides to troll the gender-segregating store is just perfect.

If you ever have at any point said “That person looks like a girl, why should I call them he/him pronouns? They obviously are faking being trans”

Consider:

1. You are not them

2. Not all people get to transition, wear boys clothes, or cut their hair because of their parents, and the only thing they can do is ask people to call them the right pronouns.

3. Some trans men still like their hair long/ feminine clothes because clothes and hair have no gender.

4. Mind your own god damn business and just call them what they asked you to call them out of human decency.
