WARNING: This post is nothing more than a rant. The sole pupose of this piece is to share my honest opinion without logic and/or reasoning :)
Itanshi, one of Religious Freaks finest citizens, sent me this link on Friday. Go ahead and take a peek, I’ll wait. For those too lazy to look, it’s a photo of the Iranian woman playing rugby. What I find absolutely absurd is their attire. These women are playing rugby in Tehran with full
oppressive female Islamic attire including the hijab to cover their head. Mind you their wearing dark clothing and this is Iran, where temperatures get over 100F regularly.
Now this got me thinking about my trip last winter to an indoor water park. It was a real fun place, several water slides, an area for the kids, and one of those lazy rivers where you just float around on an inner-tube and relax. To make a long story short, my family and I were heading over to the lazy river, when I saw one of the most ridiculous sights. There in front of me was a young Muslim girl covered from head to toe in the traditional Islamic garb. Now you have to picture dozens of kids running around in bathing suits laughing, screaming, and having a blast. Then here’s this Muslim girl sloshing through the water with 20 pounds of wet clothing. Judging by the look on her face I could tell she just wanted to rip that hideous thing off and run free like everyone else… it was priceless!
Honestly, this whole Islamic dress code is just stupid, especially when it comes to sporting activities. Take a look at these pictures and tell me why I’m wrong… please!
