‘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.

Signs that someone has no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to religion:

  • Refers to “Catholics” and “Christians” as if the former isn’t part of the latter
  • Thinks the Council of Nicaea decided what books are in the Bible
  • Says anything about “bronze age fairy tales”
  • Thinks that there are “tens of thousands” of denominations of Christianity
  • Refers unspecifically to all Orthodox Jews as “Hasidic Jews”
  • Thinks Jews use “loopholes” in the Torah to “trick” God
  • Thinks that Salafism/Wahhabism is an “ancient” or “undiluted” form of Islam that’s “stuck in the seventh century”
  • Says Buddhism is “just a philosophy”
  • Thinks that they can practice Buddhism while unthinkingly discarding the religion’s entire metaphysical/cosmological system
  • Thinks that Hindus “worship cows”
  • Thinks that all religions teach that unbelievers will be damned/punished/sent to hell

We need to talk about how families/parents/communities forcing religion upon people and how making them feel obligated to follow a religion through either:

  • Tradition
  • Emotional/mental abuse
  • Fear tactics 
  • Manipulation
  • The threat of physical violence
  • Threat being shunned 
  • Fear of disownment/homelessness
  • Pressure from bribery or blackmail
  • Pressure through guilt

 is really damaging and traumatic to peoples mental health.

And we need to talk about it now. 

My dear seeking sister, you will meet a lot of men in your life. Please don’t settle. Wait. Wait for the one you would want your sons to be like. Find him, and then wait for him if you have to.
Wait for the one that treats you like a queen. The one you can depend on to protect and take care of you.
Wait. Wait if you have to.
