@QasimRashid I sent this to my 13 year old daughter to learn those skills

@QasimRashid Bad faith islamaphobes aside - isn't the hijab sometimes used to oppress women?
Qasim Rashid, Esq. @QasimRashid
@Ol_Wall The answer you’re looking for is men. Men sometimes (often?) oppress women. We men must do better at self reform & at holding other men accountable to not be misogynistic scourges on society.
Rhinorobhorn @rhinorobhorn
@QasimRashid @Ol_Wall The answer is men. But the question is why don't men wear the hijab as well? #Atheism #atheist #atheists #misogyny
Qasim Rashid, Esq. @QasimRashid
@rhinorobhorn @Ol_Wall Probably because you should pause & correct your understanding of hijab before assuming men aren’t required to observe hijab. Here’s an opportunity for you to learn twitter.com/qasimrashid/st…

@rhinorobhorn @QasimRashid You have to be a bot, but if not - go away.

@QasimRashid I coached a HS girls basketball team and one of my top players wore the hijab (she explained that SHE chose to cover and why). I also had Muslim players who didn’t, their choice. That people claim oppression w/o asking the women who chose to cover first is the problem.

@QasimRashid @deniseisabroad If you are honest Qasim, you know many wear it out of pressure and not by choice. Both sides (those who say it's all by choice and those who claim it's all forced) are wrong. Nuance is important.

@Fariinti @QasimRashid It irked me when I saw women covered while living in the ME. So, when I coached these girls, I made a point to learn more & ask questions: to listen rather than judge based on my OWN values. Yes. Some women have to cover; to judge the entire religion b/c of this is problematic.
Tobes @LordTobes
@deniseisabroad @QasimRashid I agree, it's important not the generalize and let everybody decide for themselves.

@QasimRashid I believe your a good man. I believe in religious freedom. Those clothes look oppressive and uncomfortable and until you have to wear them everyday of your life, you can not be the spokesperson for them.
Saadia J. @miniibabybel
@kateymaeATX @QasimRashid Nor can you. They may look that way to you but, instead of assuming, why not listen to what Muslim women say about their own choices? Oh and I got news for you: high heels, thong-knickers, underwired push-up bras, tight skirts...yeah, not all that comfortable or practical.
Kate S Painter @kateymaeATX
@miniibabybel @QasimRashid I do value hearing from Muslim women on this. As long as she says this is what is right for her, than I am good. I agree with you, those items you listed are for the birds. You won’t find me wearing anything on that list.
Saadia J. @miniibabybel
@kateymaeATX @QasimRashid My point was not to belittle any woman who chooses to wear the items I mentioned (believe it or not, us hijabis wear all sorts under our clothes). The point was that what appears uncomfortable/oppressive to one, may be the exact opposite to another. No one should assume. 😊
Kate S Painter @kateymaeATX
@miniibabybel @QasimRashid I hear what your saying. Sometimes covering up w/ clothes feels comfortable, sometimes it doesn’t. It’s hard to wrap my brain around idea of head to toe clothing in black not feeling oppressive. But more than anything I believe everyone should feel safe, no mater what they wear.
Saadia J. @miniibabybel
@kateymaeATX @QasimRashid I appreciate your honesty. Hopefully, welcoming open dialogue will help dispel myths and bridge gaps between communities. Our differences don’t have to be a barrier to communication & greater understanding. 👍🏼
GF In A Coma @RealJoanOfSnark
@miniibabybel @kateymaeATX @QasimRashid I used to belong to a religion that dictated my dress to a fair extent. I am curious where the differences lay. Are practicing Muslim women allowed to choose *not* to wear the hijabi if they feel like it's not right for them? Or does that result in consequences?
Saadia J. @miniibabybel
@RealJoanOfSnark @kateymaeATX @QasimRashid That’s interesting. Wearing hijab should be a woman’s choice. In Islam, any act of worship is considered void of any good if it is forced and involuntary. And contrary to common view, wearing hijab doesn’t make one angelic (nor the reverse). It’s a deeply personal thing. 1/
