It's part of her religion that's why she's wearing the hijab. Im sure she feels the hijab is part of who she is.

If it was heroic then she would be able to do as she pleases. Rather than a male centric religion.

Then my work here is done. :)

I'd be interested to find out which mainstream religion isn't male-centric. Because I can't think of one and as an atheist of Catholic origin, I'm always interested in religion :)

Go research the Islam first before you make comments like that. :o

Did you ever consider the possibility that she is doing as she pleases by wearing her clothing of choice?

Lady muck, just admit it. You want them to fight for Muslim women. You want them to STOP being Muslim women and ditch Islam altogether.

 

For them to complete in the Olympics WITH hijab silences two kinds of people - Muslims who don't think it is possible to compete and remain faithful, and non-Muslims who think hijab is oppressive and limiting and try to BAN it (like you).

I'm a Muslim and I think good on her. We need more people like her. No way would I ever think she's not remainh faithful to her religion.

Oh Xena, I need sleep. I just read that as "hope they are the first to marry" and was all shocked at you for a moment :blush:

 

:lol: Yep, anyone can get to the Olympics- but finding a good husband; that's what's really important for a woman in life :D:lol:

Reading that story has me in tears. Well done to these girls who not only have competitors to fight against but also their own people. These are the true heroes of the games.
