Någon skrev som kommentar på MMW angående det här inlägget om ”Water Pistol Fight” i Iran och deras kvinnliga deltagare; ord som jag tyckte var mer än värt att reflektera över:

If a woman is shown in hijab, she’s a symbol of oppression. If she’s shown without hijab and playful, she’s a symbol of either sexualization or westernization. Why can’t women ever just be women instead of always being turned into some political slogan? This total politicization of Muslim women’s images is what makes me feel seriously objectified. And everybody on all sides is doing it. God I’m so tired of it…

Thank you Jannah for putting exactly my thoughts in print. Oh God, we are all tired of it…
