Just because you're fat people assume you eat too much/ don't do exercise/ are lazy or just because you want to eat healthily people assume you're on a diet.

Just beacase you wear hijab your oppressed....

Seriously we can make choices....

Ahhh I hate this one. People are always under the assumption that we are forced to wear it and it's oppressive and restrictive. Shame really - it's far beyond the opposite.

Things may be better for Muslim women in the West but in some countries in the Muslim East, a lot of women will shed off their headscarves and abayas if given a completely free choice, free from government and social pressure, especially in the Subcontinent.

To this day, the stereotype that women who do purdah (hijabis) are generally ill-educated, dull, backward and lacking confidence and unaware of the world at large. This stereotypical perception reinforces itself because most women who are found in hijabs and abayas come from rural or sub-urban backgrounds, where they have little opportunities for good education and almost none for outside work.

I know dozens of families from small towns here who used to do hijab but they gave it up, some gladly and others halfheartedly, when they moved to urban metropolises for education or work and due to marriage.

when i was at highschool It happened a couple of times that my teachers came to me and asked me why i wore a black headscarf?

They were curious to know whether I was wearing black whether i was mourning or because of islamic reasons referring to khomeini and the black purdah worn by iranian women )

Obviously none of the reasons I I was simply a Gothic Hijabi

I hate that too.....no one ever forced me to wear it, the only thing my parents told me before wearing it is....YOU CAN'T TAKE IT OFF NOW! ARE YOU SURE?

Anyway did you ever see the saudi women at the airport in beirut? LOOOOL they don't even make it to the bag pickup area before they start taking it all off.

This is not a stereotype but it really bugs me when Saudi women wear a scarf with their fringe showing. It just looks ugly and trampy in my opinion.

Yeah my parents said the same thing, especially because I put it on so young.

lool yes I've seem them all -_- That relates to what Marbles said though. It's kind of like a relief for them because of their oppressive government.
