The idea is sound but it could have been executed better in a few areas.

I rarely even bother arguing with tumblr’s own little racist community and usually my strategy is just to ignore their existence but I’m bored and I like traditional clothes- anyway: If you guys actually think that by googling “niqab” and then posting 8 images you are proving anything about the ethnicities in question or Muslims in general, anything relevant at all, then hah. Hahahhahahahaahahah. Like, I can imagine that whoever created this photo thought it’s some kind of masterpiece and probably sat there mumbling alone in a dark room “LoOK I hAvE pRoVEN thAT THE IsLaMS R STuPID I aM a GENIUS!!1” but ffs this is embarrassing and the only thing it proves is your almost laughable ignorance on Iraqi, Saudi, Afghan, Iranian, Pakistani, Syrian, Yemeni and Egyptian culture. Will you see some women wearing some sort of religious headwear in all of these countries? Sure you will, and frankly I don’t think they give a fuck about random people on tumblr not thinking they’re 〜diverse〜 enough. It doesn’t mean that every single woman from any of these ethnic groups are niqab-wearers or that these people don’t have a history, culture and heritage of their own, aren’t unique and don’t deserve to be recognized as such. Idk I could keep talking about this but it seems like a waste of time but here:

Egyptian women

Egyptian clothes from a fashion show organized by Shahira Mehrez (who works on the revival of Egyptian clothing,she’s collected Egyptian traditional clothes&jewelry from different parts of the country)

Afghan clothing

Girl from Yemen

Pakistani bridal wear

This is from a show in Baghdad, clothes inspired by Iraqi folklore

Persian dancers

Syrian clothes in a shop

Syrian dancer

And finally: there’s a whole damn website dedicated to the costumes of the different tribes in Saudi Arabia.

(+ Major regional differences within every country.) This post also makes no sense because anyone who has visited the European countries in question knows that traditional clothes isn’t exactly something people usually wear on a daily basis. Go to Denmark for example; it’s quite rare to see people actually wearing traditional dresses all the time, they are often reserved for special occasions or for folk dancers. Like you’re more likely to see people wearing jeans and a t-shirt?? I could easily make a photoset of Danish, Austrian, Finnish, Spanish, Italian, German, British and Scottish people all wearing the same clothes and based on that go claiming that these people don’t have their own culture and traditions and aren’t diverse or whatever, but I won’t because it’s obviously false. Anyone who knows anything about Europe knows that these “All European countries are the same” “Europeans don’t have a culture of their own” statements going around are just weird.

Btw I feel like I have to mention that the photo representing Finnish clothing is not Finnish at all. As suspected, y’all don’t know shit about the precious European ethnicities either lol. The woman in the photo is actually Turkish which makes this 10 times funnier to me since you know, Turkey is a country with a quite large *gasp* Muslim population. Here is the source for the photo. Congratulations, not only did you fail to prove that the different ethnicities of which some or a majority are Muslims don’t have a culture of their own but you don’t know anything about the different European peoples you pretend to care about so much lmao.

If you guys actually at some point in your lives take any real interest in Finland instead of just using it as some little pawn in your shitty racist posts, here’s some examples of Finnish clothing

B y e

Reblogging for the massive ass kicking. As well as the freaking Pakistani bridal wear ohmygoodnessitssopretty

To be racist is one thing, but to be racist and misrepresent the culture you’re glorifying? y’all need a lesson in humility. Kudos to this gorgeous post and the enlightening experience it provides.
