Muslims Wearing Things

I came across a great site today while reading Feminist Philosophers it's called "Muslims Wearing Things." It's a tumblr site created to showcase Muslims, in all and every kind of attire. There has been the recent Juan Williams "scandal" regarding a fear of Muslims in "Muslim Garb" at the airport, and plenty of other expressions of the same fear in the past. The creator of the tumblr wanted to show that there really is no "Muslim Garb" and hopefully show people who don't come in contact with Muslim people often, that they are unique, like any other group of people.

Here is one of the photos:



Caption (from the site): This is Ramez Al Mualla. He’s a Muslim proudly serving in the US Army. He’s dressed in garb… and he’s on an airplane.

  1. Love the idea! I was so sick when I heard what he said...but more importantly, how many people came to his defense saying that that's what everybody thinks, so who cares that he said it? Disgusting.

  2. @Ronnica - Sadly, I think there are a lot of people who think that way, which is a good reason to have that site, so people can see that there really is no one type of Muslim or Muslim dress.

    @SerenaDante - awww, I'm very excited that you came out of Xangaland to visit me lol

  5. It's nice to see someone do something like this. The Muslim hysteria that has been sweeping threw our communities is absolutely sickening. We've got to do a better job at being more accepting of people as they are. We have a long long way to go.
