Hi everyone this is my first post ever on this site and I thought of sharing this thought with you and especially lesbians or bi girls.
Well first of all, I wanna know if there are lesbians or bi girls who are Muslims and wear hijab because I wanna know if someone is going through the same situation I'm in and how do they deal with it?
Well so let me start with that I never understood why my Arabic lesbian friends not even the American or European ones but the Arabic Muslim lesbian friends that I have.
when they first see my profile picture they're like almost shocked knowing that I'm actually wearing hijab or they would be like "so your family is forcing you to wear it ...when will you take it off...do u ever think of taking it off"
Actually that doesn't bother me much I get to reply them but it keeps me thinking of all the lesbian women I could've had a chance with but just because I'm wearing hijab they might think of me as closed minded Muslim.
Besides i know homosexuals who believe that religion and homosexuality are contradictions like you can't live with both in your heart.
Let me tell you that I can't imagine myself without hijab it became a part of my identity just as my beliefs and my homosexuality are. and I don't see any contradiction with believing in your religion and being a homosexual. It seems like most of the arab lesbians I know are non believers like they're Muslims only in the papers but they aren't believers.
My question is why some lesbians or homosexuals in general see that you have to sacrifice one thing for the other so you can live? Why can't you live with both as parts of who you are? And let me tell you a personal thought of mine that one can't follow EVERY rule of their religion because of the simple fact that we are humans. And If religions are meant of be perfect then we are not. That's probably why I'll never let go of my beliefs.
So yeah that's it and I hope you get the point I'm trying to clarify and
Thanks for reading xx .
