WHAT IS THIS.
WHY IS THIS HORRID MISOGYNY ALL OVER MY BLOG.
LOOK AT THESE PURE WOMEN AND THE DESTRUCTIVE RAPE THEY’RE SUFFERING FROM DAY IN, DAY OUT.
BAN THE HIJAB. BAN ISLAM. MUSLIM BROTHERHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD
For a moment I was pissed and then I realized the sarcasm. Can everyone just look at this and see how these beautiful girls are ENJOYING, yes ENJOYING participating in a cultural tradition and looking beautiful?
*sarcasm* Oh, look at these poor women, soooo oppressed and clearly miserable at having to wear hijabs. Pity they can’t express themselves in their fashions! *end sarcasm*
When I was at community college, I was always amazed by just how FASHIONABLE all the girls’ hijabs were. I mean, these things were just like…all different colors, patterns, styles…And these were not Poor Oppressed Girls In Need Of Rescue By White People. They were freaking beautiful fashionable girls talking on their iPhones and getting their college degrees.
did you know? the Hijab is actually symbolically portraying the Virgin Mary, who also covered her hair. Muslim women have the choice of wearing a Hijab or not.
hijab ≠ burqa.

This is beautiful. You rarely see African-American ballerinas, especially ones my age. I would love for my future daughter to continue ballet past her childhood.
And I love how their tights and shoes match their skin tones!
