In the city of Sacramento, California, a principal celebrated Hijab Day yesterday. Tom Rutten, or as I like to fondly think of him as Tommy Rotten, caved to the bully tactics of a national Islamic group with known terrorist ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Thus, Hijab Day was born to the Natomis Independent School District and was held yesterday at Natomis Pacific Pathways Prep, or NP3 because Sukhman Rekhl, a student intern for Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) ,thinks the school is too Islamophobic. She believes it is a woman's right to not only show off what she has but also to modestly cover it up as well. Right, and wearing the headpiece of female oppression and misogyny is going to help because why?
Every female member of the student body, staff, and administration were strongly urged to wear hijab to school. I wonder if Tommy Rotten wore one out of solidarity?

The believing men are enjoined to lower their gaze and conceal their genitals and the believing women are enjoined to lower their gaze and conceal their genitals, draw their headdress to cover their cleavage, and not to display their beauty, except that which has to be revealed, except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brothers’ sons, or their sisters’ sons, or their women, or their slaves, or eunuchs or children under age; and they should not strike their feet to draw attention to their hidden beauty. O believers, turn to God, that you may know bliss. (Qur’an 24:30-31)
So there you have it. Women are clearly too evil to go without wearing a hijab that they might entice their husbands, fathers, husband's fathers, sons, husbands' sons, brothers, brothers' sons, and sisters' sons. Certainly not a credit to the weak masculine gender. If teachings require only one gender to cover themselves, it is oppressive to that gender. Furthermore, it is oppressive when someone is brutalized because they chose not to wear the hijab.
Nobody expects them to walk around in stilettos and mini-skirts, like many young American women do, and there is nothing wrong with modesty and covering yourself up either. Wear your hijab if you want, but do not pass judgement on all other women who do not by pretending it is not an oppressive garment. Stupid, stupid women.
