i think...<br />
there's a muslim woman in a headscarf.<br />
why would i think anything different?
as always...it's interesting to see where people are coming from
I don't really think much. It's their business. I've seen fashionable women that are able to incorporate beautiful head scarfs into their outfit and look fantastic. And I don't think wearing a headscarf is demeaning. I've seen powerful, career women wear them. But I hate Burka's. They just seem so heavy and hot. I can't imagine why anyone would want to wear one.
Yes, yes! Burka's scare me because I always wonder who is wearing them. But honestly, I couldn't even care about them as long as who is wearing them is happy!!! :)
I think a lot of them do take them off the first chance they get. lol
Only God knows when she's having a bad hair day. <br />
Most women who wear headscarves walk like they can kick your butt, so maybe it's like an Islamic superhero cape or something...
Wow, funny how ppl just assume everything--and kind of shameful too. It reminds me of how ppl used to think all blacks were dumb, backwards, violent etc. Its just a fear of what you dont know. I know many, MANY hijabis, they have very happy home lives and solid families. I have also heard of a few cases of abuse. However, growing up american, I knew of MANY MANY families where the woman was getting absolutely pummeled by her husband. Yet, if anyone saw her walking down the street on an average day they would think, hey theres a normal free woman? Wake up ppl, really. And for every muslimah who IS covering, there are one or two who ARENT, especially in USA and UK--no one is forcing those sisters. How many of you said, hey, by the way, why DO muslim women cover?? Everyone just assumes they know.
The first thing that goes through my head is that she is a Muslim. Beyond that I assume she must be comfortable that way since she was likely brought up to believe it's appropriate for a female to dress that way.
I assume she must be a very nice woman because she is so religious. I also assume she is somewhat submissive, to submit to covering her body up for her religion. I also am very curious to see what she would look like with the scarf off. If her whole body is covered, I assume she is even more religious & submissive. It's kind of a turn-on, to see a woman with old fashioned values. I wonder if she is in good physical shape, or does she let her body go, since only her husband will see her body. I wonder if she shaves her legs or underarms or trim her pubic hair. I wonder if I should become muslim, & meet women like this.
OK, so I didn't word-smith my answer as well as I could have, but you were the one that asked what was going through my mind. That's what always goes through my mind whenever I see a Muslim woman in traditional garb. I think they're sexy & attractive.
A few things come to mind. Part of me thinks it's beautiful that a woman would cover herself in an act of virtue, showing her full beauty to only her husband and God. At a risk of sounding ignorant, there are a few very warm days in the year when I look and wonder how hot they may be.
None of the above.<br />
I just think, "Muslim". Nothing more, nothing less.
I think she is beautiful and I wish I was more like her..I wish I could wear prayer head covering proudly, without inhibitions..I respect women that can and do..I automatically think they are good women..
Just a headscarf? I wouldn't even notice... A burka? Not good... I like being in a society where I can can see the face of the person who is coming up behind me... But just the scarf can be quite lovely and fashionable.
I've seen some women look just beautiful in them. And I appreciate the modesty they wish to convey... :)
I don't think about it. From 6th grade to 10th grade, I knew a lot of Muslims. It just became natural. It's actually weirder living in a town with no Muslims at all. If I saw a woman with the complete covering (only showing her eyes and hands), it would be odd. But it's their religion's requirements, so why judge?
Doesn't bother me ....I just always think...she must be hot as hell !! (In a temperature way...that's for all u pervs) lol
How do you know its a women in the first place when they are fully covered in a Berka
Wondering if she feel anxious being the only one wearing that and the target of many's attention.
IS SHE BALD?
I get all jelly and wish I could rock a headscarf like that.
When I see Muslim women cover their head I think they like Mary . Religious principles and Chastity.
One day that will be me
Not yet...but soon
I think its beautiful. A sign of honor, purity, respect, and secrecy. These woman are always beautiful to me. Long gorgeous hair and devout to their beliefs. Great mothers and wives. I think its awesome.
I think RESPECT
I'd think: "Oh, there's a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf." and then keep walking like nothing happened. <br />
