OLD SCHOOL HIJABI HAS MOVED TO ITS OWN DOMAIN! THIS BLOG WILL NO LONGER BE UPDATED AT THIS ADDRESS…TO SEE THE NEW BLOG AND TO INTERACT WITH OLD SCHOOL HIJABI, GO TO WWW.OLDSCHOOLHIJABI.COM
Whats up with the plethora of saucy and semi-saucy and “beautiful” pictures that hijabis and niqabis are posting of themselves on popular web sites? For example Flickr houses what seems like a bazillion such pictures, many with the tag of “beautiful hijabi”. Sisters it’s just not appropriate OR safe…read on and learn why!
For example… (i’ve blanked out a few of the faces even though they are all up on Flickr anyway…)
The first one is quite blatant…the “come hither” look with hijab. The replies to this picture don’t surprise me.
This one is borderline obscene for a hijabi…Or really any women who is supposidley “modestly” dressed…does it really need to be up on Flickr?
Third is a “cutesy” picture some hijabi took of herself, yes your hijab is very cute…but why do you want the entire world to see what you look like?
and lastly…ever fetishists favorite picture…
I hate to be a drag but taking pictures of yourselves all gussied up giving your best, pouty, come hither look into a camera really just isnt cute, cool or anything like that.
Call me old-fashioned but taking these sorts of pictures and THEN pasting them everywhere for anyone in the world to see is just plain idiotic.
First…you dont know whats going to happen to those pictures!
Would you want your “cute” picture to be put up on a nasty covering festishists website or group?
Unfortunately, there are a LOT of nasty fetishists who get a kick out of seeing pictures of hijabis and niqabis! ALOT!
I know…I co-moderate a very popular group for sisters who Niqab and we are always on the look out for these creeps, additionally we always warn new members to be careful about posting pictures of themselves, because really who knows…
I can not stress this enough! It’s one thing to take these kinds of pictures and keep them foryourself or show them to friends or family you trust but for them to be put up everywhere is an entirely different manner
Two…Your a hijabi or a Niqabi…your apparently covering for RELIGIOUS reasons NOT to look sexy, cute or “innocent”…your supposidely covering to show your sense of PIETY! A sister who covers ought to want those around them to view them as a religious women, NOT as a play thing. Why make yourself LOOK a plaything?
Please, be very very wary!!!!
