The hijab is a hurtful garment

Ross Finnegan's brought up how the Islamic hijab has caused serious damage around the world, and the Democrats in the USA have only worsened the situation with their own dishonest, uninformed, offensive support for it:
Now is the time to juxtapose the reaction to the hijab in Iran with the attitude of the Western left.

For an "improperly" worn hijab, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini was beaten to death, sparking massive protests revealing deep anger against the Iranian regime. A photo showed Hadis Najafi, another 20-year-old, tying her hair into a ponytail before joining the protests. She had filmed herself dancing on a beach, pirouetting with swirling hair, so inflammatory to the mullahs. A spray of bullets felled her. A woman eating in a restaurant without a hijab was arrested.

In striking contrast, the hijab, the symbol of women's oppression in Iran, is the same piece of cloth the Western left considers "empowering." Woke companies like American Eagle and Nike hawk hijabs to woke consumers
. Nike could not resist virtue-signaling, saying its Nike Pro Hijab would "advance inclusive conversation around hijabs."
I really can't see why anybody should continue buying Nike's shoes after this. The Democrats, as mentioned, make things worse, as their Muslim members make clear:
Linda Sarsour, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib are high-profile Democrats, vocal defenders of Muslims' rights, and constant critics of Israel. In an article, Phyllis Chesler excoriated them for not speaking out for the women of Iran:

Sarsour and Omar continue to glorify their wearing of the hijab as a protest against white racism and alleged "Islamophobia." None of the three women offered their own words in support of the protesters. They merely retweeted the briefest of remarks by others. All three, who are ordinarily so vocal, were suddenly tongue-tied.

Anyone familiar with the ways of the left would know that its orthodoxy requires promotion of the hijab. Tellingly, President Biden's "solidarity" with the Iranian women did not include the word "hijab," nor any mention of Islam.
This reminds me of the time Hollywood performers supposedly decried persecution of homosexuals in Brunei, but there was no similar condemnation of the Brunei government forcing women to wear burkas/hijabs. It compounds the impression that despite all claims to the contrary, even today, leftist Hollywood remains ignorant of women-hatred, and only cares about homosexuality. How much longer is the USA public going to put up with this? The time's come to boycott Hollywood along with many other leftist institutions.

But most importantly of all, other religions are going to have to reevaluate and stop making it a custom for women to wear head coverings similar to the hijabs and burkas, like the Catholic wimple. Even the Haredi wigs for women, along with requirement of modest dress, are going to have to cease. Only that way will it be possible to make a case against Islamic dress codes convincingly.
