i love hijab

Shout out to the dumb boys who yanked my scarf off in the hallways and then laughed when I dropped all my books. Shout out to the guy who thought it was funny to go behind me during class and pull my bra strap to hear it snap then got defensive when I brought my fist out. Shout out to the guys who would say ‘that shit around your head is ugly you think you’re pretty?’ ‘let’s get married so I can see ur hair’ shout out to you because I love wearing hijab 100000x more because of you jerks

A pink faced girl with a white headscarf stumbled out of the line, put on the hat, which fell right down over her eyes, and sat down. ‘HUFFLEPUFF!’ shouted the hat. The table on the right cheered and clapped as Hannah went to sit down at the Hufflepuff table; the ghost of the Fat Friar waving merrily at her.

Hijab

  • is a tangible reminder of my spiritual relationship with God
  • Privatizes my sexuality
  • Liberates me from societal expectations about appearance
  • Empowers me to achieve my goals
  • Reminds me to represent Muslims well by doing good
  • Allows me to develop my sense of self without societies opinion
  • Encourages me to have humility in my character

But come on. Sana's season will be a a constant "I love wearing my hijab" "it doesn't bother me that I'm much more limited than men" "it's all my choice". It will be extremely tame and not realistic. Because otherwise it would be called islamophobic.

Are you seriously reducing her to that? wtf? I’ll have you know the struggle muslim kids face growing up in Norway is. real. Having pressure from both the society/friends/school on one side and family/tradition/religion on the other, and trying to balance what sometimes feels like the edge of a knife is REAL. Also have you not seen the show? Sana getting shit from other muslim girls? You think her story is a walk in the park? I think it will do you some good to watch (what I hope is) Sana’s season.
