I really just be here.. minding my own business, and then I get a notification telling me that Abbie has posted. Excitement, joy, happiness.
Anyway I’m now sat here sneezing and coughing for whatever reason. I don’t recall being exposed to a sick person recently, so I have nobody to be pissed off at, and it’s pissing me off. Wherefore am I sick? From whence did these germs come to terrorise me?
I’m also trying to get my creative juices (ew, vagina) flowing, but my brain is so broken right now that I can’t even chat shit. I’ve seen these Vogue videos (I distinctly remember learning that Bella Hadid is Horse Girl™), and I’ve been pretty mad that I’m not famous, simply for the fact that I wanna be asked all these questions. Lo and behold, I have been tagged and it’s my time to shine.
Whilst you’re here, check out Abbie’s post too if you haven’t already. In an ideal world, anything I’d ever have to read in life would be written by her.
It all comes down to this: real Muslim women who wear hijab for its actual purpose (faith) are being attacked and profiled, whilst people like Gigi are being praised for “fashion”.
I’m sure you’ve all seen that issue of Vogue Arabia, and you know what I’m talking about. If not, google it real quick because I’m not about to add a picture of that idiot to my post.
The amazing part is that it’s NON MUSLIMS that are saying we shouldn’t be offended by this. The even better part is that NON HIJAB WEARING MUSLIM GIRLS are saying that we shouldn’t be offended by this.
First of all, if you’re a Muslim girl who doesn’t wear hijab you have no right to comment on issues about Islam and the way people practice it.
I’ve seen people talking about how “Gigi is Palestinian, it’s not appropriation” or “it’s a step forward by normalising hijab in the fashion industry” and I’m about to address these stupid statements for you.
