    Hump style hijab, flawless make-up, expression like a smacked arse - this muslim fashion trend is pretty annoying. More pornographic than pious - even a half naked slave girl would appear more modest.

    talking of which:

    Quote from:
    Her mega-watt confidence, poise, and beauty caught the notice of a modeling agency, and she’s been seen everywhere including the runway (Yeezy, Alberta Ferretti), covers of glossies (Vogue UK, Allure), and even the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue where she sported burkinis for the first time in the magazine’s history.

    It’s true that certain Islamic countries prohibit women from wearing certain types of clothes in public, but why should Western democracies employ the same bans in reverse?

    Bans are problematic due to the martyr effect but there's nothing wrong with discouraging/criticising (rather than celebrating) certain clothing choices. Popping the balloon of islamo-feminism is essential to deflate the arrogant ego and confused thinking of muslims in the west.

    What I don't like is, they want to make an opressive custom glamorous. They make it into something special and trendy, as if the hijab is just another accessorie. It's not. I don't buy it, and I frown upon this bullshit hijab-hump-turban looking head dress as any other hijab or niqab. Maybe even more, because they are women promoting and norrmalizing a custom based on misogyny, trying to legitimaze it by the very thing it stands against. The hypocracy is quite off putting.

    I guess certain people would say western ideals aren't any less oppressive.  here's a random old article:

    Quote=]Online Vice magazine article criticises culture of women promoting arbitrary items]/quote]

    Quote from:
    The model’s mission is to be family-friendly, even in lingerie, and yet the goal is to make them look stupid. They are “flirtatious but amiably goofy”; a “wilfully oblivious sex object”.

    the burka and the bikini both draw attention to the female body. oppressive or liberating, depends on your point of view but why should anyone 'celebrate' either? the convergence of sexy feminists and pious islamists just goes to show the shallowness of the ideological justifications of either camp.

    forgot the article link:

    by the way, I don't see a problem with having a personal preference for revealing/modest clothing. using clothing to promote artificial values to the others is the issue.

    the burka and the bikini both draw attention to the female body.................

    well why only female body?  such burka/ bikini  outfits will draw attention on females as males... 

    and why only burka/ bikini ??...  even the dress code like this in that Umrah journey at Mecca

    will draw the attention of onlookers...

    because ideological clothing for men serve a different purpose. besides, women are more interesting subjects with reference to clash of cultures and their uneasy embrace.

    recommend reading the full article:

    Quote from:
    Still, I have noticed an interesting irony, at least in the United States. While those conservatives and liberal hawks denounce mainstream society for outwardly celebrating conservative Islam, they ignore its subtle subversion of Islamic tenets, the manner in which it pays cloying respect to the symbolism of Islam while undermining its significance.

    Here is a golden example. The magazine Sports Illustrated publishes, for some reason, a “swimsuit issue” filled with bikini models. This year’s issue featured a young Muslim model in a “burkini,” which ensured that both her body and her hair were covered. Reaction was hostile from some quarters.

    Quote from:
    Yet this “salute” was superficial at best. While the model might have covered up, she was still lazing in the surf, her hands behind her head, as her swimsuit hugged her contours. To be clear, I am not proposing that there was any intent on the part of Sports Illustrated—and still less on the part of the model—to subvert the traditional significance of Islamic dress. But it still seems obvious that drawing attention to womanly curves undercuts the intended modesty of the hijab.

    The accidental subversive genius of American liberalism has been in presenting the hijab not as a symbol of faith but as a symbol of choice.
