Behind the blue sheet and mesh veil there is a woman. A woman with dark blue eyes, almost the same color as the clothing. Someone with an expressive face, bright smile and kind spirit. All hidden from the public for a brief moment in time. I don't know how to describe the experience of wearing a full burqa for a short period of time, but if I suddenly find the words I'll share my thoughts with you. I believe every woman should wear this once in their life. And never again.

Приятно познакомиться! :) But seriously, this is not a joke. I really can't explain how oppressive this garment is.

In all my travels in Russia, I've never seen a female wearing a burqa, but I've seen it many times in America. Of course, only a small portion of Muslim women wear this form of dress, but it is still too many. Hijab is completely different, I have absolutely no issues with it.

Well that is an extreme. There is nothing written in Islam about wearing this or even a veil. Just that all women (and men) must show modesty is dress. Men are not allowed to wear shorts in Saudi Arabia for example. Just whatever tradition is used.

Yes, I understand it's not the normal dress for Muslim women as I noted in the comment above. But for a few select Muslim countries on the planet, it is the norm. Hijab is something entirely different. Women still have a self-identity while wearing it, and even a sense of fashion. I realized this while traveling in Palestine, where the women were some of the most beautiful and stylish I've ever encountered. All wearing hijab. Btw, have you seen any students wearing full burqas at the university? Just curious.

France and Belgium banned wearing burqa in public. Opinion is divided if this is a good or bad idea.

I knew about France, but not Belgium. I don't know how I feel about the full ban. It's a very complicated issue.

Exactly! I don't see how any female can consider herself "free" in clothing like this. Sorry. I'm an open minded person, but not on this topic.

"I believe every woman should wear this once in their life. And never again. " - excellent words:))
I am very far from being a feminist (that means, I see nothing bad if father is working, and mother is beautiful:))), but THIS is definitely an extreme!
I am really afraid of Islam (except some mild versions, like in neighbouring areas of Tatarstan and Bashkiria), because of their redicalism and extremes in many issues.

I'm not afraid of Islam. I met many, many kind Muslims throughout my travels. However,everyone should be scared of the extremist and jihadist. In the grand scheme of the religion, these people are a very, very small minority. We lose sight of this because the only exposure most people have to Muslims is through news media, who are only covering the extreme sect of Islam. It's no joke, and they continue to multiply, many of them right here on American soil. Waiting to destroy and kill the hand that feeds them.

That's a nice description, but in reality it's like a walking prison from my perspective.

Afghan hijab

This is not hijab, it's a burqa. They are completely different garments, and the sensation experienced while wearing them is not the same. I've worn both.

I was waiting for a male comment about this. When you have big, round boobs they are very difficult to hide, even under a burqa!! :)) I have some photos where I'm standing and the round objects are much more visible. This is the most modest, concealed shot. :)

There is ample space in this outfit for one more person to get inside and take rampant thirty-second Muslim sex. This clothing helps birth of triplets. Keep these clothes, my record is 19 seconds:)

Jun. 23rd, 2014 05:44 pm (UTC)
Yeah, good one. Very humorous. :) 19 seconds? Pity your wife. :)) Muslim sex? I doubt there are many variances. Seems people all over the world are pretty much fucking in the same manner.

That's exactly how I felt - in a prison, or as a walking ghost in the midst of others.
