I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist. 

My name is Ela.  I am seventeen years old.  I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab.  So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through. 

My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall.  Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack.  Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us.  Not today.  People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn’t look at us.  They didn’t talk to us.  They acted like we didn’t exist.  They didn’t want to be caught staring at us, so they didn’t look at all. 

And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists.  She wasn’t trying to be mean or anything.  I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice.  However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget.  The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store. 

All that because I put a scarf on my head.  Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil.  It didn’t matter that I was a nice person.  All that mattered was that I looked different.  That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing. 

This experiment gave me a huge wakeup call.  It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day.  It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren’t Muslim. 

People of Tumblr, please help me spread this message.  Treat Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Taoists, etc., exactly the way you want to be treated, regardless of what they’re wearing or not wearing, no exceptions.  Reblog this.  Tell your friends.  I don’t know that the world will ever totally wipe out prejudice, but we can try, one blog at a time.  

Markete gittim ve küçük bir kız bana terörist dedi.

İsmim Ela. On yedi yaşındayım. Müslüman değilim, ama bir arkadaşım kendi arkadaşının türban taktığı için ayrımcılığa uğradığından bahsetti. Ben de birinci gözden bunu görüp bir müslüman kadının neler çektiğini anlamak istedim. 
Arkadaşımla birlikte başımıza eşarp sarıp markete gittik. Normalde, satıcılar bizim aperatifleri denememizi isterler. Tezgahtarlar bize yardıma ihtiyacımız olup olmadığını sorarlar, indirimlerden bahsederler ve gülümserler. Ama bugün olmadı. Satıcılar dahil insanlar, kasiyerler ve diğer dükkan sahipleri bize bakmadılar. Bizimle konuşmadılar. Sanki biz yokmuşuz gibi davrandılar. Onları bize dik dik bakarken görmememiz için, gözlerini üzerimizde hissetmedim bile.
Sonra, bir markette, dört yaşlarında görünen bir kız, annesine bizim terörist olup olmadığımızı sordu. Kırıcı olmaya çalışmıyordu. Onun ön yargının ne olduğunu bildiğinden bile emin değilim. Fakat annesinin tepkisi asla affetmeyeceğim ya da unutmayacağım: Bize bakan kızını susturdu, ters ters baktı, sonra da dükkandan dışarı çıkardı.
Sadece başımdaki eşarp yüzünden. Aynen bu şekilde, bir anne kızına müslüman olmanın kötü, şeytanı olduğunu öğretti. İyi bir insan olup olmamam önemli değildi. Tek önemli olan farklı görünüyor olmamdı. O küçük kız büyüyüp diğer çocuklara da aynı şeyi öğretebilir.
Bu deneyim beni uyandırdı. Sadece birkaç saat sürdü, müslüman bir kızın her gün neler geçirdiğini hayal bile edemiyorum. Bu bana birçok insanın bildiği ama sadece birkaçının hatırlamaya tenezzül ettiği bir şeyi hatırlattı: Türbanlı kadınlar da insan, tıpkı dışarıda müslüman olmayan her kadın gibi.

#feminist #feminism #women

I’m always amused when women, especially white, cis, straight women, take on this “well, I don’t see how Feminism benefits ME, so fuck it!” mentality. 
Because, like, ok, perhaps you have enough privileges that the impact of systematic gender inequality is pretty mitigated for you. Sure. 
But, like, do you not give a shit about your sisters? About your sisters of color, and LGBTQIAP+ sisters, and disabled sisters? About your sisters who ARE targets of violence, who are suffering? 
Because lists like this only betray 2 things, a) That the person who wrote it does not understand the sociological concepts and theories that lay the foundation for much of feminist theory and b) that they don’t give a shit about anyone less fortunate than themselves in regards to marginalization and oppression.
