hijabi wear

anonymous asked:

ok i dont know shit abt pjo i just read like half of the first book but pls tell me all about that solangedavekat

DUDE I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING THE SERIES ITS SUPER GOOD I PROMISE AND ESPECIALLY AS YOU GO ON ITS GOT LOTS OF GREAT REPRESENTATION theres the obvious dyslexia/ADHD part but also theres POC!! And obviously, theres canonly gay characters!! And nonbinary characters!!! And theres even a girl who wears a hijabi but its not made to be some *huge* thing (although she largely only wears it because she has to. Its still good though and super respectful as far as i can tell)

Basically Rick Riordan is great and you should read all his series revolving around Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Norse mythology. 10/10 do recommend

And I’m hoping to get that solangelo davekat thing posted eventually lol I’m currently working on a couple other things but soon!!!

Ok so I see a lot of hijabis preach about how their parents aren’t forcing them into wearing a hijab and that’s it’s their own personal choice and even showing proof like posting screenshots of conversations with their parents showing how supportive their parents are of their decision to wear a hijab or not, and that they’ll always support them no matter what they do. Most of them implying that hijab is a personal choice and that no body is ever being forced into it without considering that this isn’t the case with everyone. Wearing a hijab because you WANT to is great, this is how things should be but please don’t invalidate the hijabis that are actually being forced to wear the hijab, it’s great to have supportive parents that encourage you to embrace your own identity and make your own life choice but not everyone’s parents are like that, there are so many hijabis that wear it because their parents only care about the image their daughters represent within their community, I know so many girls that aren’t happy about wearing it or girls that got disowned by their parents (literally disowned) simply for finally standing up for their own personal beliefs and taking the hijab off, so just because your parents are supportive and just because it was strictly your decision to wear it doesn’t mean that you can deny the fact that this whole forcing girls to wear it situation doesn’t happen very often. It’s important to always consider that just because you have it good, doesn’t mean everyone else does

like i could write 3 essays on the way “poc representation” is approached by white creators/white audiences in popular media. and there are other people of color who have said it better than me anyway (this is a good post to start with)

but when it comes to the way whites specifically on this website portray poc yall got a lot of work to do. there’s the little inaccuracies (hijabis don’t wear short sleeves, that’s not how natural hair works, etc) and then there’s yall pushing poc features to the point that you’re literally drawing racial caricatures. like i cant count the number of times i’ve seen slit-eyed east asians or Big Ethnic noses and eyebrows exaggerated to the point that it looks like ben garrison drew it, all in the name of “poc representation”. whether it’s the little things or the big things, it comes across as yall trying to score brownie points/trying to prove to other whites that you’re a Good White for being ‘diverse’ in your art - even though you obviously didn’t do even a little research and no poc appreciates being portrayed like this lol

this, of course, isn’t to say stop drawing people of color, or stop with the Poc Headcanons. its just to say to be constantly aware of what you’re doing. there’s no hard and fast rule for handling poc representation gracefully when you’re white (shit’s nuanced!), but you can at least come from a place of realness - forget the liberal mantra of “more representation!” and just draw poc as you know us to be. or do some proper googling. next time before you draw that hulking brown woman covered in exaggerated facial and body hair, consider what it means to actual brown women with facial and body hair. and so on

the contrast between s3 & s4

as a queer mentally ill dude who values season three dearly since i feel i got very relatable and good representation, i must say that what we have got so far in season four, is really upsetting and sad and i feel for the muslim fans who was hoping for and expecting their representation as good as we got in isak’s season. 

in contrast to season four, in season three, isak had, after six episodes, met a guy he liked, spent time with him, kissed him, had him spend the weekend at his place, been told off by eskild, messed up so even took his distance, and then finally reached out to jonas, who had always been there ready to talk if isak wanted to

after six episodes in season four, about sana a muslim girl of colour, she has over and over again been showed that her friends doesn’t see/care if something is wrong with her. they have never asked about her religion, which is a big part of her identity and so much more???shit??? they have not even mentioned Ramadhan on the show, and it starts tomorrow?? the lack of communication in this season feels ?? i don’t know if it is out of character or just poorly written??

 i’m so confused we get it, julie. due to islamophobia and racism in society it can be hard to be a poc hijabi wearing muslimah, but sana has gotten nothing but pain. and of course oppressed groups in today’s society feels pain because they are oppressed. but they still have good days too. and we have barely seen any of sana’s good days?and now we are on episode six. in the season that is supposed to be about sana. but instead we get misery and stereotypes, such as muslim boys of colour are put in a fight where the motive could be homophobic, but we do not get it explained which left us with a hiatus week with racist and islamophobes attacking the poc male characters. after that hiatus week, we still have no explanation and all the plots just keep becoming more convoluted, instead of being solved one by one.

Out of Respect (Lin/Reader)

Prompt: Again, not requested, just inspired by what’s going on in the world today.

Author’s Note: The reader is obviously female and Muslim in this case. I’m all for more diversity in the x reader world.

I want to give a shoutout to @anonnymousefangirl for helping me out to make sure that everything was accurate!

I did a lot of research on this to make absolutely sure that A) everything is accurate and B) I didn’t accidentally offend someone. There are a lot of things some of you might not understand or be familiar with. That’s a-okay. If there’s anything you’re totally lost on, you can send me an ask and I’ll try to explain or you can google it for yourself. The information is out there!

It should be noted that removing the hijab off of a woman who chooses to wear it for religious purposes is kind of the equivalent of pulling a shirt off of someone. It’s inappropriate, especially in public, and the person will want to cover up.

You’d think this kind of thing wouldn’t happen in New York, but I’ve heard stories similar to this from children at a school I used to work at. Even this city isn’t free of prejudice.

Pairing: Lin-Manuel Miranda/Reader

Summary: You are a hijabi (a woman who wears a hijab) headed to work one morning on the subway. A white man comes on, screaming and cursing about your religion before tearing your hijab off. Thankfully, one of the other passengers offers help—at least as much as he can.

Rating: T for racist or otherwise triggering words and phrases like “muslim terrorist”. 9/11 is also referenced.

Warnings: Some nazi references and the above.

I swear there is so much beef against hijabi women. Even non-hijabi women police them for not upholding the standards of “traditional hijab”, even telling them “what’s the point in wearing that if you’re still making yourself beautiful and eye-catching?” when most likely, the non-hijabi hater is literally bitter because the hijabi dresses and styles herself much better. And the whole bs about how hijabi women shouldn’t bother wearing one if they’re gonna engage in debauchery and all that, when non-hijabi Muslim women are often excused for having ‘haram fun’ because they’re considered as 'non-practicing’ by default so they chose that life apparently. Whereas apparently, the hijabi gotta represent the entire ummah like, fam that is so misogynistic. Why isn’t the same expected of men? And when other specifically non-hijabi women AND also hijabi women who don’t partake in “modest fashion” espouse that same misogynistic bs, I think to myself “bruh why you going against your own kind? our men oppress us enough already ffs”

If @umyazzie @SpokenDamsel @_roaaaya and @faydahir can come and diversify my college in South Africa, that would be great.

Some of my female Muslim friends and acquaintances feel threatened to wear their hijabis on campus because some white people would make racist/religious bigotry. Go forth young woman, it’s YOUR choice to wear your hijab. NO ONE should tell you otherwise.
