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

But I do know about it, I just pointed it out. So where does that leave your argument?

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

Actually, I am quite adept at understanding linguistics and their underlying psychological and thought processes.

Take the hint.

Or else what?

I prefer "A'Job" Day.... Whereas you work for a week and find some clever bastard waiting for you just to give you some hard cash. WE should all see what that's like. Wear that on your head.

Hijabs or not... she doesn't want a broke man.

Canadas Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects people's rights to wear a hijab, turban, etc. So what rules would anyone participating in this, and it's not a holiday, be breaking?

What law is broken by wearing a Hijab?

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.

Firstly, religion is usually not a choice for most people. Most people are born into a religion and become indoctrinated.

However, after we become adults, we do indeed have a choice to live by our own divine light (true meaning of religion) via introspection, or remain blinded and guided by ignorance and continue to subscribe to indoctrinated practices (mainstream religious dogma). The irony is: many adults seem to be guided by limited perspective beyond religion which in turn forms their entire life philosophy along with determining the currency of their life (how fulfilled or unfulfilled life is). Your perception of religion being a hate group is an example of this behaviour.

Secondly, generalizing and labelling religion as a hate group is subjective. It is an ideology based on personal bias and a distorted perspective to a certain extent. I personally do not believe religion should be done away with despite my philosophy of living by one's own light. It's religious extremism that should be done away with. Those who are dogmatic fundamentalist are the ones who sew hatred, violence, and division - not religion itself.

After all, ALL religions teach the fundamental "the golden rule" at its core, which you alluded to.

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.

Here is something to contemplate: Nobody is forcing people to participate in "hijab day". Yet, you give the impression that you wish to endorse the practice of forcing those who do wear a hijab to have it removed by stating in your OP:

These same Muslim women are unwilling and will not remove their hijabs to know what it's like for normal people

Again, "Hijab Day", despite me still being unaware of its existence until this thread, was a social experiment meant to induce empathy. Think of the hijab as a fashion statement. In fact, a few centuries ago, all women of all demographics wore one for fashion reasons. Today some wear it for cultural reasons and some wear it for religious reason. You might be inclined to state that for empathy reasons they should remove the hijab, which is the premise of your OP, correct...?

Btw, what is your understanding of normal people vs abnormal people?

I ask because that is a very telling statement despite its subtlety.

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.

I agree.

" ...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.

...but you did discriminate in your OP. I simply reflected your talking points along with adding children into the mix, which you left out, and that is why I mentioned no men in my statement...

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


You think I'm a bigot?


Anybody who takes the time out of their day to express their views concerning a trivial matter such as "Hijab Day" with this kind of animosity on social media, is seen as bigot in my eyes:

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).

Pathetic if you ask me.

Those are very nonconstructive and provoking words.

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.

I agree. We are all ONE. Therefore, being that we are all one, we should learn acceptance. I believe one of the major blocks that prevent one from living a life of being fulfilled in any relationship, or within society as a whole, is the inability to accept others unconditionally. Acceptance means recognizing and showing appreciation for each other's differences who mean no harm.

We also should not fragment the ONE race through labelling some cultural fashion statements as "normal and abnormal" and getting all worked up about it...

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.


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.

How is the hijab harmful? You contradict yourself.

talis est vita...

Most people think of the veil solely in terms of Islam, but it is much older. It originated from ancient Indo-European cultures, such as the Hittites, Greeks, Romans and Persians. It was also practiced by the Assyrians. Veiling had class as well as gender implications; thus, the ancient Assyrian law required it of upper class women while punishing commoners for it. The strong association of veiling with class rank, as well as an urban/peasant split, persisted historically up until the last century. Then more privileged women began rejecting the veil, as did Egyptian feminist Huda Sharawi, while poor women increasingly adopted it as a ticket to upward mobility. (A similar dynamic occurred with footbinding in modern China.)

The contraposition of The West versus Islam certainly has historical roots, but these two systems have similarities as well as differences. Women in medieval Europe dressed more like women in the Muslim world than is generally realized. It was customary, especially for married women, for them to cover their hair with various kinds of headdresses. Paintings of urban women in western Europe often show everything covered except the face and hands. It two nunswas common to drape the neck and even sometimes the lower face in a wimple. This became part of the classic nun's garb that represents the most conservative style of female dress in the Christian world. It drew on the traditional head-veil of patrician Roman women, though the wimple may have Hunnic roots.

p.s - You might find it eye opening to research who the Statue of Liberty was modelled after and who the government of France's intended first recipient was before it became a gift to the U.S...

Actually, for your imformation, recent polls show that 70% of Canadians do NOT want any more Islamic immigration into Canada.

First off, I base my opinion on my day to day interactions among fellow Canadians - not polls. Btw, where are these poll results? I got something for you later. Post those poll results first.

Thankfully Canadians are generally very sensible - unlike you.

You insult me based on my comment on a social media thread. Unbelievable!

Alright, I'll play your game with a slight twist. I'm 28 years old and I do not daily commute my existence away with nothing to show for it unlike most older people - anywhere in the world. I believe my choices in life and the currency/quality of life I lead makes me more sensible than you would like to believe. In other words: I go to bed when I want. I wake up when I want. And I do whatever I feel like in between those times.

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.

Only a bigot would state such hyperbole.

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.

Only bigot would state such conjecture.

Some of us like Canada just the way its always been. Take your socialist femmenist agenda elsewhere please.

I live in a few places across the globe, any way. Turks and Caicos is great this time year...

This entire egoistical post directed at you was inspired by the snob in me. I can be a bigot too...
