Why the Hijabi is a lie (Truth serum if you want it)

Injust, deceitful and untruthful lies are things I can’t help but have something to say about, be advised not to take it to heart what I bring up. I don’t mean to offend anyone, I really do mean well. I am very passionate about people and when people need a push I will be there to prompt them to speak up. I am all for the feminist movement and encouraging young people to not be shy and embarrassed about their body image. I’m a defender of the idea that your opinions are separate from who you are and does not make up who you are, as you grow you shed ideas inherit ideas and sometimes rarely embody some ideas mostly in your heart and mind. But definitely not through this trend the hijab, that is just a political statement of allegiance to a particular organized religion. This is just my view, I understand the issue is sensitive but sometimes you need a bit of truth serum to realize what this really is about.

I’m possibly sorry for this rant. I hate organized religion, I was a part of it for a long time. And the garbage spewed by their ministers, priests, bishops, the pope to console the majority in some silly narrative bugs me- a little. Then when I hear this garbage about how the hijabi represents virtue and modest dressing. That is just terrible. You cannot wear virtue, you inherit it through the heart and mind. God is also not offended by hair. If it was your chest or private parts, you are only doing it for the other humans you are living around. God was never offended by naked Adam and Eve. They wore twigs and leaves because they were ashamed of themselves for being naked. Are you ashamed of your hair perhaps? There is no quote in the Koran that requires one to wear a hijab. It’s a man made rule imposed by your male peers to control your cute little female heads.

I relate to modesty like a child learning to put on perfume or cologne on for the first time. You don’t bath in it with the mentality that you’ll smell even better with more on, this is excessive and this is what you are doing. You cover your chest and crotch because you don’t want to offend people with your source of sexual bodily fluids. Being worried that your neck or ankle will arouse a person is beyond silly in nature, a trivial and needless worry that misses the point. Modesty with anything more than just what you need is in the range of taking into consideration other people fetishes. You are not responsible for other people’s fetishes or to deal with their carnal urges. Basically, this is a matter of having your priorities and preferences in check.

I have no intention of changing your mind about the shame-rag. I will speak plainly on this. On matters of shame; I’ll feel shame here and there for many things that I feel uncomfortable about doing but when you continue the lie about covering your hair because it’s a token of modesty to your god. That is narcissism to a whole new level, to be so disillusioned in your fantasy to prove to god your loyalties that you’d cover your hair to feel better about yourself because some man imposed rule said so. I will not allow it. It is unjust to allow this lie to continue and to cover it up with reasons and words to protect your ingrained habits based on tradition of how you are taught as a child especially by unqualified dictators of your religion. Indoctrination is the word you are looking for, indoctrinated is what you are. I do not approve of this movement of shame and lies. You better get your mask on or that man is going to be aroused by your face. Better do a better job covering your eyes too, some people have a fetish for eyes you know. I can make reasons as a male to impose on you too, there is no reason to submit to my advising.

Why then do you submit to a title like “Muhammad the Great messenger of Allah blessed is his name. May he rest in peace.” because he’s so great you just got to right? One of the youngest of the Abrahamic religions, he published a book 1.6 billion supposedly read though no one can agree on a true Islam, it’s fine – even though it divides your people further and has never had a reform, it’s fine, it makes it more genuine right? Whatever narrative you want to stick with and lets you sleep at night. The businessman is the one making the money, if you like what they’re selling – buy it. But realize they’re asking you to sign your soul away – to follow rules of conquests and medieval times. Don’t be surprised if witch burning happens locally when someone sees the magic of iPad, internet and unfamiliar technologies. God forbid the miracle of fire and health facilities. Over superstitious, disillusioned, backwards, fabricated, useless non-sense – that even the church has out grown over years.

Sometimes people feel so ashamed of themselves for not being a certain way and not inheriting certain genetic traits that they hide themselves in face masks and hijabis. This is a symbol of oppression, people wear masks to hide their identity. This matter is no different. I will not stand for these misled ideas – that these wonderful, beautiful kind people are led to believe that in order to live fulfilled happy lives you must impress, prove and subject yourself to the critique of your peers. You are what you do not because of what you look like. If you really do mean what your mouth speaks , you must practice virtue without the veil – to hide while you practice something is an act of cowardice. It’s a double standard,  flip flopping act of only accepting gratitude when it’s convenient for you. The weight is not on your shoulders ladies, I assure you. Wearing a hijab to please your peers based on your outward appearance does nothing for yourself. It’s a placebo effect that tells you everything is okay and that you are following the rules so you are invincible. You are being prescribed fake medicine to put you at ease and buying it too at that. It reminds me of silly ancient Japanese traditions where a woman never looks a man in the eyes when greeting with a bow – they should look to the ground, otherwise it’s disrespectful. Or how women were served last in certain Japanese restaurants in the 1990s – it was shameful.

I believe in the feminist movement, white people can feel shame too – when they are in their bikinis and you’re blinded by the white. (I joke.) It’s okay! Laugh and Just feel comfortable in your skin. No one is actually judging you with score numbers, it’s in your head.

Hope, Curiosity and Prosperity,

Nam
