What do you think about the hijab?

The hijab isn’t empowering. It isn’t a woman’s choice. In a of couple countries with Sharia law (I’m looking at you Saudi. You too, Iran.), it’s illegal to take it off. In other countries where it’s not illegal, it’s required in schools as dress code aka girls can’t get an education if they refuse to wear it. It isn’t a choice if you have to do it.

Stating facts isn’t islamophobic. If your religion requires you to never critically think about it then you’re being brainwashed, plain and simple.

I repeat, the hijab is not empowering. Your individual experience of choosing the hijab does not reflect the realities of the millions of girls who are forced to wear it.

Now onto scripture,

And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male servants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed. (24:31)

Can I add that women’s bodies are considered 3awra/’Awrah, which translated literally means defect/flaw? Cute, right? But, hey, in this context, it just means “private parts”!

O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their jilbab over their persons: that is most convenient, that they should be known (as such) and not molested. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (Surah 33:59)

And women of post-menstrual age who have no desire for marriage – there is no blame upon them for putting aside their outer garments [but] not displaying adornment. But to modestly refrain [from that] is better for them. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing. (24:60)

(Right, because women with menopause are suddenly and magically immune to sexual assault. Thanks, all knowing Allah.)

The hijab does not “desexualize” a woman. People don’t choose to “be sexualized.” “Being sexualized” doesn’t require you to have an active role in your sexualization. It just requires the other person to look at you in a sexual way, regardless of what you’re wearing.

Some of the highest rates of rape and sexual harassment are in Muslim majority countries, (hey, Egypt and Afghanistan), where the majority of women cover up. Women who wear hijabs and burqas are not suddenly immune to sexual harassment, or rape.

This insinuates people to blame the victims of sexual abuse and rape. Covering up or not will not save you or cause it. Stop victim blaming. The hijab does not protect you from anything. Last time I checked, a bullet cuts clean through a hijab and an abaya. What does the hijab save you from? Abuse? Poverty? Hunger?

Take note Cindy, all you virtue signalling has done is make a mockery of the millions of women who HAVE to wear it.

  1. Its a stone age relic.
    A way of controlling women.
    But what they do in their own muslim shit holes is up to them.
    But I dislike them wearing them here.
    NZ has been a western country for the last 200 years.
    I resent them and the liberals trying to run us into a multi-cultural cess-pit

  3. I had a discussion with a friend who, despite being a devout Roman Catholic, wanted to wear a hijab and join one of the marches in Wellington. My question to her was something like; “Why couldn’t you walk in support as you are – representing yourself and your beliefs. There is more value and honesty in supporting someone as yourself than by pretending to be something you are not.”

    The hijab is in reality a symbol of oppression. You could argue it is the same as the Confederate Flag (Dukes of Hazard, I have no problem with the flag), the Swastika (Religious symbol, again, no problem with it) or many others. Would Ardern drape herself in a Confederate Flag or start sticking Swastikas to her jacket? That double standard and lack of owning her own culture and her own background as a platform to communicate support from is disappointing. So wearing it to communicate support – that’s bloody lame virtue signalling.

    However, if somebody *chooses* to wear it as part of their normal dress – go for it. I’m all for people’s choice.

      • Yeah, her motivation was “One of her hijab wearing friends was afraid to wear one, so she was wearing one in support and to allow her to be less afraid”. She did check with her priest as well to see if she would be violating a tradition / something. All in all, that motivation made sense to me.

  4. You really don’t understand Leftists over choice/freedom.

    Freedom of speech is only speech that they approve of. Anything else is blasphemy hate speech.

    Being forced to wear the hijab is liberating. It’s at least a ‘choice’ after all!

    Orwell nailed it in 1984 with “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength”.

    He distilled Leftist thought thoroughly.

      • No, what George Orwell did, under his pen name Eric Blair, was accurately represent how socialism was actually practiced. It’s not such a much a playbook but the reality of how Leftist regimes operate…along with his other works like Animal Farm.

        The Gulag Archipelago is the non-fiction version of 1984 and it is terrifying. 1984 can be isolated as a work of fiction but the Gulag Archipelago is example upon example of 1984 in practise.

        Orwell was ringing the alarm bells. He full well knew the reality. It’s scary how long it took for some in the West to realise what Orwell saw so quickly.

        • Other way around, Colin. “George Orwell” was the pen name of Eric Blair. You must have typo-ed that, surely!

          “The Gulag Archipelago” is certainly the best and most compelling read of my life so far, for all the wrong reasons. I’m going to tackle it again soon.

        • Yeah I have read the Gulag Archipelago, and it is a truly terrifying look into the Soviet regime of the time. What was amazing was Aleksandr managed to leave the USSR (though he didn’t think he would be allowed to re-enter) after writing that book instead of ending up a bullet ridden corpse in Siberia. I have also read Cancer Ward by him and A day in the Life

          • The story of the publication of the Gulag Archipelago is almost worth a book in itself. The lengths that were taken to preserve, copy, smuggle and publish the manuscripts were heroic. Solzhenitsyn was forced to leave the Soviet Union, but as you say, how he wasn’t just bumped off is remarkable. Almost certainly it must have been his already considerable international profile as a Nobel laureate.

  5. http://newswithviews.com/why-muslims-refuse-to-assimilate/

    It is not that they refuse to assimilate, it is that they can’t.
    Muslims, irrespective of the country of their origin, (except Iran or Turkey [really?]) were raised in such way that they can never assimilate into Western culture.
    True Muslims unanimously abide by and live under the laws of Sharia and not the Constitution …. or other man-made laws in other countries.

    … to be a loyal and faithful Muslim, one must adhere to and perform many rituals, as specified in the Quran by Allah and the Hadiths/Sunna, every waking moment of his entire life.
    Disobeying these rituals does not make one a moderate Muslim, but rather it would make him a non-Muslim, facing an uncertain future.
    It is not their fault that they adhere to their customs and traditions. They were born with it.
    It is our fault that we bring them here and force them to assimilate. They won’t.

    Keep this in mind, it is mandatory for a Muslim to adhere to Islamic laws and not to a man-made law ….
    A Muslim can never be both a Muslim and a … [kiwi] at the same time. If a …. politician does not understand this common theme within Islam and its political nature, it is a disservice to those who elected them into office.

    Now that Muslims are here in ….. , they do not shy away to demand an accommodation according to their own Islamic Law which is unconstitutional.
    We are left with no choice but to allow them to do as they please. Like any good dhimmi would do. That is Sharia law.

    What is incredible is the gall and audacity of Muslims to demand Western democracies legalize Sharia in their own societies. ….

  6. I’m just astonished that a New Zealand Police Officer (who was not a Muslim) would wear that.
    I strongly suspect the orders came from above….
    And don’t get me started on the flowers in holsters thing!

  7. I’d ban the fucking thing. Not because I am some control freak but for no other reason than when our females travel to Islamic nations they are told they must cover their heads. Muslims who come here must be told that in NZ our customs do not allow females to be covered from head to toe.
    Id also ban Halal and Kosher slaughter tomorrow.

  9. The hijab is a symbol of a ghastly, regressive, repressive, misogynistic culture. Trying to envisage how Jacinda’s advisors thought her wearing one would be a good thing does my fucking head in.

    Sure, there are Muslim women who support the hijab, but I think cultural and religious brainwashing is the key thing here, and they are offset by the many millions who see it as a tool of repression and long to be rid of it. You can find untold instances of both schools all over the internet.

    So, considering how divisive and controversial the hijab is even within Islam, how is Ardern wearing one anything but a really fucking dumb idea?

  10. hijabs, niqabs, burkas, etc. islamic female attire.
    fez, taqiyah, keffiyah, chechia, etc. male attire.

    Are all symbols of an ideology, that Mohammad’s followers celebrate wearing, and support all of Mohammad’s warlord lifestyle with his sayings, guidance, deeds, and actions.

    If unwittingly then they should “bone up” just what Mohammad was about, recognizing the importance of abrogation in the koran, and just what he did to other people in the hadith.

    A reminder of the symbols of another ideology that was wiped out just 70 years ago, where arm bands, insignia, swastikas, are now considered in very poor taste.

      • Thats getting a bit close to what Hitler did to the Jews. My more restrained version would be make it clear that their customs as practised in their old country are not synonymous with the Kiwi way of life, that we respect freedom of expression, freedom of action, freedom of speech above any religion. Your suggestion punishes the 50% of Muslim women that have already been constrained under patriarchal Islamic law.
        If you want to live in a hell hole that represses women and kills gays, stay in your own fucking country. The Muslims I actually know are not the problem, it’s the tenets that they’re often forced under threat of beatings and death to acquiesce to.
        Let us compare the Hijab that women are forced to wear to the false PC speech we’re forced to accept. None of us are happy about it. Our fortune is that we’re not getting our clitoris or our nose cut off should we revolt.

  11. Even other immigrants such as Indians and Chinese take a long time to assimilate.
    Eg most of them stay at home and watch their own tv channels.
    And listen to their own music
    So Muslims are never gong to want to integrate and I don’t want them to.
