To all the people I’ve seen posting about how hijab is a woman’s honor, makes people see her for who she is as a person, turns women into queens etc etc I just want to say this: When I started wearing the hijab, I didn’t notice any major changes. I was still the same person, just now I wore looser and additional clothing. I didn’t somehow now magically respect myself more than I had or become more honorable than I was before. I didn’t feel liberated or more free than I was before. I wasn’t somehow more beautiful than before and People ESPECIALLY weren’t all of a sudden now judging me for who I was as a person. None of these things happened because hijab is not magic and in reality how people choose to treat or interact with another person depends on who they are as a person and not what the other person may or may not be wearing. When it comes to hijab, there are some benefits. There are some limitations. Just like anything there are good days and bad days. Sometimes I like wearing it and sometimes there are struggles. If someone believes that God has mandated hijab and feels able then they wear it. That’s it.
