Oh you know, just hanging out with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones (and Allah) on the subway platform.
From I Walked Around in a Burqa All Day (and I’m not Muslim)
Some select excerpts:
I didn’t know a thing about Islamic clothing—or that you can’t just go to the burqa shop and get one. Turns out it’s a giant pain in the ass.
After watching 74 YouTube videos and parsing 108 Google search pages, I couldn’t find one article or video explaining if burqas were comfortable or how Americans reacted to seeing someone resembling the Grim Reaper float by them in line at Starbucks
I didn’t realize the significance of visiting one of the tallest buildings in New York dressed in Islamic garb until we reached the entrance. I felt like a jerk.
I caught my reflection in a doorway and thought I looked like Batman.
Read the rest here if you can stomach it.
That’s not even a burqa.
There is a certain sickness in wearing a niqab for laughs as a non-Muslim and having the audacity to announce that those you are mocking should feel ashamed and guilty for the terrorist attack that took place on 9/11.
This was legitimately one of the worst things I’ve ever read.
I emailed this “writer” to tell her how horribly executed her project. She said I missed the point. =____=
