Women don Muslim headscarves at ‘Hijab for a Day’ event

Seventy women in Prince George donned Muslim head scarves, most for the first time, as part of a ‘hijab for a Day’ event at the University of Northern B.C., in Prince George this week.

Students from the campus women’s centre presided over a box of colourful scarves, offering women on their way to class a chance to wear a hijab around campus.

“I’m not Muslim, but I just got a hijab put on me by another student,” said Dara Campbell. “There’s a lot of myths and false things that go around about what a hijab means. We should understand other women’s choices.”

    To make it really authentic, shouldn’t there be a couple of imams beating them with canes for showing their faces and leaving their homes. A couple of honour killings would add a nice touch as well.

      Heh.

    Is it rude to hope for a “Barefoot, Pregnant & In The Kitchen Day”?

    • WalterBannon

      Yes, why are feminists not respecting the cultural values of hillbillies?

      I guess they are racists. That is the only interpretation of the facts possible

      • Clink9

        Indubitably

    Next: replacing the administration with mullahs .

  • J. C.

    Dumb bitches.

    • Alain

      Also voters. Just saying.

  • Tooth&Claw

    These stupid women don’t understand that anywhere else where Islam rules, it’s not a ‘choice’. In fact in some Islamic families it’s also not a ‘choice’ but imposed by the male members of the family.
    RIP Aqsa Parvez.

    dear MAN, if your wife or girlfriend appears in a headscarf it’s
    Sharia Month, she must obey your sexual fantasies, like sharing
    her with other woman or taking her wherever you like whenever,
    have fun, that’s what allah made them for, if she resists you
    beat her but don’t bruise her (that’s haram).

    In the end guys, islam is beter for us than for them, you can have your
    ffm (lol stands for frankfurt at the river main) whenever you wish.

    • WalterBannon

      If my girlfriend ever appears in a headscarf she will be my ex-girlfriend

      • vwVwwVwv

        enjoy the month first.

        • WalterBannon

          girlfriends are easily replaced

          it would not be enjoyable to continue a relationship with a woman I can not respect

          • vwVwwVwv

            Walter, Walter, i am afraid you haven’t got my point, (i know, my bad english.)
            if she wants a headscarf, why not offering her the full program?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            They should have to when they indulge in this silliness.
            Someone should sue them for cultural appropriation.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I had a responsibility to my children not to leave my ‘boys’ in the wrong place.

  • Mark

    Ask these idiots who Aqsa Parvez was and why she’s important. Then ask them about women’s ‘choices’ in Islam.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      Dummy, dummy .

  • deplorabledave

    What was it that BillyHW was saying?

    • WalterBannon

      the truth, it appears

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      I like BillyHW, but it seems that only some women are so stupid.
      My wife is very smart.
      I tell her she’s too picky and she says you’re here aren’t you?

      • Alain

        I don’t doubt what you say about your wife, and I would add that mine is the same, but truth be told these are pretty representative of younger Western women today.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          My daughter is a Daddy’s girl.
          And I am really happy about that.

  • tom_billesley

    Be a “muslim for a day”. Drop in to the mosque on Thursday and say the shahada with the imam, then go back on Friday and tell him you’re quitting islam. Don’t make plans for the weekend.

  • The way some people smile at Muslims or when Muslims are discussed – a beatific smile, as if adherents of Islam are the sweetest people on earth – makes me think of the way people act when they are faced with a mad dog and nowhere to run and no one in sight to help: “hellooo, doggie. Nice doggy. Good doggie…” ;D

      I see it more in the manner of the residents of Jonestown when handed the glass of cyanide laced Kool-aide. They eagerly drink it up.

      A cross between that and the German Nazi who turns in his Jewish neighbor to the gestapo.

      They are both ignorant, indoctrinated and evil at the same time

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I once didn’t know the difference and then the internet happened to me in 2003.

  • Dave

    University, used to be higher education, now it seems to drive down intellect.
    Oh well, there’s always trades. And they probably pay better than a “women’s sexuality” major.

    • David Murrell

      Actually, a trades education does in fact pay better than a women’s sexuality major.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      It’s socialism! Socialism doesn’t want people with brains. They may find out it’s a lie.Why do they shut you down, when you make sense? Because they don’t have any.

  • Canadian Born

    hat the hell is the matter with Canadian women? I am an almost 70 year old woman and I think these women have screws loose in their heads. Destroying Canada and they don’t have a clue!

    • Canadian Born

      It should read What not hat. I guess my age is showing.

      • vimy

        Hats off to you….. no worries.

  • Manual Paleologos

    When do they go for their genital mutilations?

    • felis gracilis

      Exactly. If these liberal virtue-signallers really want to show solidarity with their muslim sisters, they should have “clitoridectomy for a day” day. Then afterwards, they can see about having reversed until next year.

    • Clink9

      I have some rusty garden shears.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Proving once again that for almost all liberals every single position and point of view is just a fashion statement.

  • Ed

    “…We should understand other women’s choices…”

    Cool! And because “women’s choices” should always be understood, next week is wear KKK wear to work day!

    • Alain

      Indeed. In particular when these “women” see no problem in either honour killing their daughters or assisting in it, or when cannibal women eat people. Words cannot describe this level of stupidity.

  • barryjr

    Has to be fake news I can’t see this happening in the shithole Hedy Fry said they burn crosses on lawns.

  • WalterBannon

    What a hideous group of quisling hags

    • ontario john

      They probably all attend the United Church.

    • felis gracilis

      Yes, we would need less eyewash if they went full burka for a day…or forever, for that matter.

  • Frances

    I’ll join the “hijab for a day” when Muslims join the “crucifix for a day”.

  • ontario john

    And in somewhat related news, the National Post website is reporting that the professor who refuses to use gender neutral pro nouns, has been denied a grant by feminist Trudeau. This is the first time he has been denied a grant.

    • A Hamilton Guy

      What do you expect from a commie lieberal.

  • A Hamilton Guy

    What a dumb bunch! Don’t they know where this leads.

    • Alain

      No, and they could care less as long as they all feel warm and fuzzy.

  • Tooth&Claw
  • k1962

    Aren’t they aggressive. I would have said NO.

  • Barrington Minge

    Makes them all look retarded.

  • Nermal

    Did they have their husbands’ permission?

  • John

    These dozy bints never ask themselves why there’s never any reciprocity when it comes to wearing OR not wearing the head-gear.

    When will we see a ‘take-off-hijab’ day in solidarity for those women killed or punished for not wearing it?

    Shouldn’t THAT be the issue?
