Seeing her picture reminded me of the American woman who power messaged me yesterday all day to tell me what a cold hearted human I am for not wanting to save Pakistani women from their oppression. I her mind Pakistani women are not allowed by their husbands to leave the house, the only exception being under a tightly closed burka. Sending her an Express Tribune article about fashion obsession had no impact on her. Personally I find headscarves uncomfortable. When wearinng one in a few rural areas, mainly in order not to be recognised as a foreigner, I kept bumbing my head against things 😉 Many people also wear them to protect themselves from the sun, just like man people in Germany wear hats in summer. I personally don’t get sunburn on my head and prefer the fresh air to reach my skin when I am sweaty. But people have different preferences. This seems hard to accept for Feminists. I feel unconfortable in shoes with heels, with long fingernails, with unshaved legs, when walking … But I don’t declare people who don’t cycle everywhere, who don’t shave their legs, who like long fingernails, shoes with (high) heels … oppressed. People who say such things are in fact oppressive!
