What's all this about a Hijab Ban, aye? 


I'm not one to get all political on ya... I rarely express my thoughts on matters because I'm convinced I'm not well versed enough.

The problematic part of me read this and thought, "so I can wear a headscarf if I claim it's for reasons other than religion, hmmm *hatches a plan*"
