Actually, I can see where it could be construed as "subversion". It starts with something small and eventually snowballs into the larger picture. Maybe I'm just over thinking it??

I dont agree with it but I'd don't see it as "pushing" anything on anyone. It's just out there, floating around for anyone to "choose" to do or not. It's yet another idea that can grow tentacles and develop into a whole other thing. Kind of like the thread about suing the gun manufacturer for an act of crime that some nut used it for. Where will it end?!

They do? Really?

Huh. What I see every time I look into my husband's eyes is so very far from fear, and he is pretty religious.

Why do you care so much what other people do and wear?


Why are you so upset that someone finds it offensive that we have days endorsing the idea that people should do or wear things they otherwise would not do or wear and that these days are often put on the calendar and endorsed by the government?

Wouldn't you think that if the US had Wear a Hijab Day, it would be a violation of Church and State rules?

And I find it offensive that so many places endorse meatless Mondays. I don't care if others do it, but I hate having it endlessly propagandized to me as if it is some kind of moral or virtuous thing.

I'm not. It was just a question.

Only if it were mandatory.

Ok... I'm not sure what this has to do with anything.

I was curious. The point of the OP isn't about what other people do or wear, but what other people are trying to cajole us into doing or wearing. When you create a special day of recognition for said activity, it gives that activity a moral/social endorsement with the power of the state behind it. "Look, it's Hijab Day! Everyone will be wearing one. Why aren't you?" It encourages you to go along with all the rest and do what you otherwise might not otherwise do in order to go along to get along.


Only if it were mandatory.


But I've seen you throw a fuss about things that you deem to be state endorsement of religion even when they aren't mandatory in here, so what makes a Hijab Day any different? It is still a religious thing and the state would still have to endorse it in order to put it on the calendar. Could you say you still be so sanguine about Wear a Cross Day?


Ok... I'm not sure what this has to do with anything.


Just pointing out how these things grow. Another one that I dislike is the one where everyone is supposed to turn off their lights for an hour. It's also gaining widespread backing in the media. How long until you see hijabs everywhere and even your place of work encourages everyone to go along to get along? ... Just like with Meatless Monday?

I don't succumb to peer pressure like that.

Well we endorse Christian holidays still.

Again, I don't succumb to peer pressure like that. I also work with a bunch of muslims. My company is muslim owned.

a quick look around the interweb reveals.
world hijab day is february 1st.
introduced in 2013.
hardly any country celebrates it.
muslim women condone it.

interesting fact.
christian women not wearing the hijab should be stoned to death or be bald.
christian men allowing their slave (woman) to not wear a hijab should be stoned to death.
1 corinthians 11:2–16

I bet they never pass a blunt day so we can all experience what it's like to be a Rastafarian.


As Nate said, it's always 5 in Magaritaville, and it's always 4:20 at Bob's place.

I live in Toronto. I wasn't even aware of this "Hijab Day Event" until coming across your thread - never mind "the backlash" you speak of. Was there indeed a backlash that you witnessed or just something you read on some fringe propaganda website...? In fact, nobody I encountered in my daily activities even made mention or alluded to it. Sounds like another case of *manufactured anger* to get the bigots all riled up.



These same Muslim women are unwilling and will not remove their hijabs to know what it's like for normal people, for the rest of Canada. (normal meaning people not required to wear bags on heads to appease pedophile prophets from ancient times).


Stated like true bigot.

I grew up in a Christian foster home (one of two) which the first one was run by Anglican nuns . I would never dare ask them to remove their *traditional habit - tunic/veil.*

Would you...?



Many Canadians are against it because we don't like slavery and oppression of women here.


Many Canadians are not against the hijab. Only the small few who are bigots are the ones opposed to it. They are the ones who use false narratives of higher ideals and like to claim many are in agreement with them in order to disguise their bigotry. However, I agree that most Canadians are against the exploitation and oppression of all women and children from all demographics - religion, race, ethnicity, and so on, has no bearing on that.



Also it is not required by the religion so it's not religious, just cultural.


Perhaps that is true.

Q: If you believe it's not religious, just cultural - why do you generalize or lump all Muslims into one box?

Most of the Muslim women I know do not wear one at all unless they are at mosque or at a religious event. Some of these women are often mistaken for being other than Muslim due to their light blue or green eyes and very fair skin. Extremely beautiful, imo.

Here is what I think of bigots such as yourself...



Pathetic if you ask me.



The good news is the majority of Canadians do not think like you do, at all.

Hey in reply to your post, I'm not a bigot at all. Religion is a choice and on top of that pretty much every religion is a hate group. If a hate groups hate you, and you don't like it, that is not bigotry.

Would I ask nuns to remove their stupid hats? No of course not. UNLESS they asked others to try wearing their hat to see what it's like, then I would. Equal opportunity / golden rule / common decency.

I personally have no problem with a hijab, it's no different than a baseball hat and according to the Canadian council for Muslim women they've said it's not a religious requirement but cultural. CBC radio interviews are the source. I am not saying it's not required, the council for Muslim women run by Muslim women say so and so I am just passing that along.

" ...all women and children from all demograpics.."

What is this 1946?. Unlike you I don't discriminate against men. Men, women, trans, children etc we're all equal. Not sure why you don't see things that way. I'd put children first sure but not women because I am not sexist. Equal rights.

"Here is what I think of bigots such as yourself... "

You think I'm a bigot? Half my family is Arab and I'm technically "white" but identify as human being, I think races are bs - we're all the same race. Every human being on earth's DNA is 99.9% exactly the same look it up. Skin color isn't a race, religion isn't a race. I think we're all equal.

What I don't think is cool is asking people to do something that you aren't willing to do, like I said. Especially when it's based on harmful nonsense like religion.

The hijab is not slavery or oppression of women. Yes it's optional for them, some regions may require it. The total covering of their face and body is the oppressive form of it where they have no choice. People need to be educated on the difference so the later begets all the vile from us "modern" people.

To be quite honest, I find the hijab to be attractive on some women; partly because I like the idea that they've decided to be conservative about themselves.


It may be "Optional" in some cases and is certainly not a requirement of Islam but rather a cultural tradition. That being said just because it is "Optional" does not mean that coercive actions may not be involved. This may apply moreso to rural clan based sub-groups of society where financial considerations may be an issue(think of pre-planned marriages, the women may theoretically have a say but at the end of the day....) Another angle is new converts in the Western world. The longing for acceptance and togetherness with their new religious community may be a big coercive factor, especially since the Muslim community(in the US at least) are predominantly from the Middle East where this practice is common.

At any rate this is kind stupid IMO. Wearing a hijab does not in any way constitute walking a day in another's shoes.

That's it for now, need to make a phone call. Maybe more to add later!

Is there a non Hijab day so they can see what it's like just curious

Hijab day? Please save us from the Mullti-Culties! The hijab like the burka represents islamicwee oppression of women. And Hijab Day is simply another dangerous multi-culti propaganda piece designed to legitimise mysogynistic islamic practices in the west. We should avoid and dismiss these PR pieces for the dangerous games they are. We didnt spend centuries feeing ourselves from theocratic servitude only to let another barbaric religion enslave us yet again surely. Boycott such events.

Actually, for your imformation, recent polls show that 70% of Canadians do NOT want any more Islamic immigration into Canada. Thankfully Canadians are generally very sensible - unlike you. I would strongly advise people that want to live in an Islamic state to move to one. There are many available. Enjoy your Shariah. Canadians are, by and large, sick to death of muslim apologists and their ilk. Canada was founded, and is still largely European in its ethnic makeup, traditions and culture. And the vast majority want it to stay that way - no matter what Trudeau, the CBC, and regressive leftist multi-culturalists like yourself may think. Some of us like Canada just the way its always been. Take your socialist femmenist agenda elsewhere please.

Don't hate. Appreciate.


The funny thing with you is that you are so easy to read with your constant Freudian slips. Then when you are confronted with it you have to do a lot of backpedaling and damage control because you damn well know that your true colors are not going to be accepted by people who are not in your sect.

This is a great example that clearly shows the creeping danger of islamisation, and muslims keeping up the charade of being moderate.

If I wanted Islamisation of the West you'd know about it, guy.

You're a troll who doesn't understand English turning this into a circle jerk.

Take the hint.
