As a Black Knight – a supporter of Men issues i want to point out why hijab is sexist. but Don’t take this the wrong way this is NOT about ‘covered are sexist’ or ‘men want to objectified women’ . I will tell you how hijab ideologies are not equal for men ( well women get unfairness too by this ideologies ). So before you left a comment read my point first . First i want to point out how it is never equal:
1. High double standard : women must covered most of their body parts . Especially in Muslim country where women covered 99% of their bodies from hand, arm, leg, thigh even hair and face. Not only that i found that most of them love to use double even triple of layer, even just to covered their hair. And don’t forget hijab women wear it anywhere and every single time of their life.
But when we come to see Muslim male , they don’t have to covered strictly like their female . Most Muslim men can have same standard like Western men , even in my society Muslim men love to use only short, often shirtless. In strict Muslim society, women always forbid to wear this and that, even showing a single hair is wrong ,reverse the situation and you’ll find men are always tolerated what to wear even if sometime it is innappropriate .Which i think it is high double standard and never be equal.
2. High double standard in my society too : well not all Muslim country forced women to use burqa ,like in my society they are more free, i admit that but it still have high double standard because most women wear hijab and the women who choose not wear a scarf still wear clothes in proper manner but in reverse situation Muslim men here often shirtless, use short, pee outdoor whenever they see a tree even if many women there. That make me sick, they teach women to covered but teach men to be shameless.
Now i will point out how it’s degrading for men :
A. Double standard Perception : Muslim society believe that it is degrading for women to use sexy cloths on public , they said it is very unrespected for women to wear something sexy. so most of women covered strictly most of their body part .that means hijab women actually covered because they believe it is degrading for women if a men see their bodies right? They don’t like men to see their bodies. So my problems are, if we are equal why it is wrong for men to see women bodies whereas they are accepted to see men bodies ? yes hijab women are accepted to see men shirtless , using only short , pee in public places but they forbid men to see even only hair or arms. Hijab women feel innocent to see men bodies but feel direspected by men if the situation reverse. They said it women’s dignity, so why men not forbid women too to see men’s bodies for true equality.
B. Double standard in media : This’s my experience from my Muslim society but i can guarantee you no big different in other Muslim country. Okay my media always censored if they want to put a picture of women in bikini , they said we respect women and there’s always a penalty for media that dare to show women in bikini etc . i don’t have problem with this , my real problem are in the double standard .Why when the situation reverse they tolerated and accepted if it is a men who bare chest using short on tv ,and sometimes i saw they not censored a men using only underwear at television ( crime news for example). The worse is media always said only women are objectified not men , this really pissed me off !! men more often objectified in media yet media can only see women who are objectified
I remember when i saw a crime news where the men are stripped almost naked because he was a thief and many hijab women at there also on television no censored. I also remember a reality show showing a tribe men naked no censored too. yes you can see the penis on national Tv ! the tribe women ? fortunately in that culture only men are naked. So even it already show penis on tv, society act like nothing happened . Oh yeah because penis is male genitalia so it’s okey for them show on Tv without censored . actually this is degrading men ! but the worse is no one care. Can you imagine when the situation reverse ? society will get mad and said “it’s degrading women”or”why always women objectified?” well i say bullshit. I remember when all Muslim men gathered to forbid Lady Gaga show just because she wear sexy clothes. WTF ! can you see double standard here?!
C. Muslim always compared apropriate women bodies with innappropriate men’s bodies: I remember when most people in my society thinks women in bikini are equal with men naked , Shit ! actually if men naked they are more innapropriate than women just in bikini, but most of them feel it’s equal because of their double standard culture . i saw the news on Tv where society help to covered unconsious women in bikini at public (which they always do if see women in unpropper dressed) but if they see naked crazy men on street no one care because that naked person is men! even society see it as a prank! yeah this is real because that crazy naked men near my house when i was a kid , i always saw him when return from school, my society act like nothing happened once again because he is a men .
D. Hijab women are selfish : they forbid men to see even only their hair, thinks men are a pig if men see women bodies . but do they realize they can also see men bodies at public without people labelled them . Hypocrite !
I remember when one hijab women tweets by not wearing hijab and showing their hair same like naked and degrading women, WTF! So in her mind if men just see her hair that men is a sex offender and that’s why they always complain that men are objectified them because men see a single hair is count as harrasment and remember this women still free and tolerated to see men bodies.
E. Men are seen as rapist : their reason to wear it all the time are so that they can free from rape , so men will rape you in mall just because men see your hair? WTF!
So this is why i can’t take hijab ideologies seriously, That’s why if my society thinks hijab ideologies is good, i will say BULLSHIT & it is MISANDRY!! it has many high double standard and become difficult to protest because this ideologies has spread and become their basic culture . Also they started to teach this ideology to you when you was a kid so it is like brainwashed, they think it is holy if only women are covered. i better live in society where men and women both can naked on public place or both of them must covered because that is a true equality.
