[quote=Evanescence]Sorry if my last post offended anyone in anyway, I’m just against sexism and women getting told what to wear.
I think people have the right to wear whatever they want (as long as its not your birthday suit) to show who they are and what they like. Some people might wear a black dressy outfit with heavy eyeliner while others like jeans and a bright red top.
so what why can’t women where what they want? i don’t like it when women are forced to cover up every inch of her body and has to wear a cage on her head!
If people like head coverings then go ahead wear it! its what they like, they feel comftable with it so go ahead, if you rather not then don’t!
please no more fashon tips from religion and government PLEASE!!!
THe idea is that if you say “let everyone wear what they want” you can not follow that by saying “as long as they are not naked” b/c you have restricted their freedom.
The idea in Islam is that society changes, what is appalled 50 years ago is seen as the norm now…what is appalling now will seem like the norm 50 years from now. If i go to a nude beach, being naked is ok…if i’m in Church, being naked is highly offensive…so you see, you are depending on what society tells you…how do you know this is correct?
In Islam, we recieve this guidance from God, who better than our own Creator to tell us what is best for us
In terms of being forced…look at the muslim women in this country, not forced…but CHOOSE to cover. I’ve recieved some amazing insight from women converts to Islam who tell me that “covering up” is the best thing they have ever done for themselves
