I just wanna let you know that you’re the first person to do any of this and it means volumes to the people who do wear the Hijab, and people like me who knows my mother wears a Hijab and there’s people who are actually gonna defend her when something like this happens.
[Girl:] I think it’s completely ridiculous that no one stopped.
Are you even Muslim?
But you know what a Hijab is and you choose to defend her for it.
And you are the reason we’re gonna start changing as a people and you’re the reason like, you’re the hope, you’re the spark of hope - you’re the Katniss in this. Seriously she’s Katniss Everdeen everybody! Power to the people!
Wow this actually made me cry when I watched the ending of this video. People are so blind to what the Muslim religion actually is. Wearing a hijab is probably one of the most beautiful ways for a woman to show her devotion to her religion.
a few days ago i gave my partner lauren her first knuckle tattoos. the tattoos are simple symbols i drew to represent six key principles to writing delivered to the world by italo calvino over a series of six essays. i found the book “six memos for the next millenium” in the trade box at sticky and over winter me and lauren traded it back and forth discussing the qualities: “quickness” “lightness” “multiplicity” consistency” “visibilty” and “exactitude”. it was his last published work, he died before he finished the essay on consistency. it is a beautiful book and more than just ideas on how to write, it is histories of important thought and expression according italo. it works in terms of when thinking: “what way should i livez now?”
the symbols will look as if they are tattooed upside down to you but that is beacuse lauren wanted them to be arranged for her viewing and not the viewing of others.
