LAST WEEK, NIKE ANNOUNCED THAT IT WILL BE SELLING A BRANDED HIJAB FOR WOMEN. NIKE’S CLEAR SUBMISSION TO SHARIAH LAW WHICH DICTATES THAT WOMEN ARE INFERIOR BEINGS AND AS SUCH,
ARE SUBJECTED TO BEING FLOGGED, STONED, RAPED, AND MURDERED BY THE WHIMS OF THEIR MALE COUNTERPARTS WITHOUT IMPUNITY IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING.
A few days ago, BBC reported that Nike will begin selling the hijabs in 2018, and they will be made with a light fabric that includes tiny holes for breathability and the length. The hijabs will also be designed to stop it from coming untucked during activity.
Twitter immediately exploded with users slamming Nike for this decision, with many pointing out hijabs are a symbol of oppressing women.
Congratulations, @Nike for normalizing the oppression of women through the Pro Hijab. Disgusting.
