Spiked heels with a hijab?

May 3, 2010

I don’t understand.  Really.  I try to understand.  The hijab is worn by some Muslim women as part of dressing “modestly”.  The Quran doesn’t tell them to cover their hair; it actually says that Mohammed’s wives covered their bosom but whatever.

Here’s what I don’t understand:  If you’re going to the trouble to wear a hijab, shouldn’t the rest of your wardrobe be equally modest?  Skintight pants and black patent leather stiletto boots are NOT modest.  And this is rather mild.  Google “hijab thong” for other incongruous images.  Religious people often amuse me by how they pick and choose which parts of their chosen religion to follow.
