Kerchiefs, Veils, Head scarfs, and Burkas?

October 12, 2011 Leave a comment

Some wear kapps, some wear veils, some wear kerchiefs, some wear head scarfs, but some wear burkas.

I like the mysteriousness of the burka, lol.

From what I’ve seen, most start donning burkas after their menstrual cycle begins.

Some think burka wearers are oppressed, some are. But I think, however naively it may be, some may truly wear them out of choice. I can understand some people’s ” logic ” behind the burka. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but Yahweh created us all differently, so I’ll respect everyone’s opinions.

Anyway, the burka topic is a somewhat sticky, hot one. The burka bans. Religious intolerance or security issue? Don’t get me started, off topic anyway.

Do you wear or know someone who wears the burka? What are the reasons behind it for you? Do you wear a veil? Do you wear any head covering at all? If not, explain your convictions for us all. Remember, keep it civil. All comments are and will be moderated.

May Yahweh bless your day!

What To Wear?

I constantly ask myself when I’m buying clothes or head coverings if they’re” appropiate “. I believe that there is no one and only modesty standard for everyone. Some may feel comfortable in loose pants, others in burkas, some in knee length skirts. It’s their decision, and no one has the right to judge their decision.

I’m not sure I could ever ditch the long skirts/dresses and different forms of head coverings. It just seems….well….natural to me now to wear them.

Sometimes we have extremely hot days, and I can honestly admit I don’t full-time cover at home, in private, my head tends to bake if you know what I mean.

Also, I thought burkas were going to be the first time of coverings I’d ever wear. Apparently not, LOL. My head scarfs give me a ” Muslim ” look sometimes, and I would so love a veil to give me more of a ” Christian ” look.

Also, what are everyones’ thoughts on religious cross-dressing? For instance, a jean jumper dress ( black or gray shirt underneath ) with a head scarf? ( I only own head scarfs, though I REALLY want a veil. )
