A Muslim mother in Pennsylvania, United States is launching a Hijab line for dolls in a bid to promote diversity and acceptance regarding Muslim women’s choice to wear the headscarf.

Safaa Bokhari of Oakland, Pennsylvania and her friend Gisele Fetterman have teamed up with Pittsburgh non-profit organisation For Good for the Hello Hijab initiative, which will create tiny headscarves as accessories for Barbie and other dolls.

Nike unveils Pro Hijab for Muslim athletes

According to the official website “Hello Hijab believes that while we may look different and have different beliefs, our similarities far outweigh our differences. We strive for a world where we all live and love together.”

Speaking to The Huffinton Post, Bokhari said she hopes the “Hello Hijab will be used by both Muslims and non-Muslims, so that children get used to the sight of women wearing the headscarf.”

Soon if you go to a social gathering, you will see people gushing about new Muslim Barbies and how wonderful they are. Then they turn around and ask your opinion, expecting mandatory approval. You can end this conversation by just saying, "MAGA."

They do know it’s a sign of gender oppression?

Just wait for the mutilated genitals porn.

our similarities far outweigh our differences.


If our similarities far outweigh our differences, then why the need to make a doll which is clearly different; a doll which is designed to be different, and showcase a major difference?????

Muslim Ken should be equipped with a beheading sword and a bottle of acid which they can splash on the face of women who won't cover their faces.

If there is one thing Islam has taught me, is that if you want to get you way, make headway in a culture and have people defend you with virulence.

Is to wage brutal war and commit unimaginable acts of Terrorism.

It really does get you everything you want.

Seriously.

“Hello Hijab will be used by both Muslims and non-Muslims, so that children get used to the sight of women wearing the headscarf.”
The most disturbing sentence in the whole article.

Poor Ruth Handler (Barbie’s creator) must be rolling in her grave. She was born in Denver of Polish Jewish parents.

Just so long as they don’t make a doll named Mohammed. If they do that the jihadists will blow up the toy factory for sure.

Ever notice how the new deep virtue is taking some honky thing and then GIVING IT AWAY..?

Golfer? Your fave is Tiger. You’re NUTS about him. His ability makes you RELIEVED.

Newsy? You LOVE Fareed Zakaria. He’s great cuz his name sounds like someone pulling the pin on a hand-grenade. Just yesterday he used the explitive BULLSHIT no less than FOUR times in describing Trump. WOW..!!

Musical? You’re nutz about Yoyo Ma. He isisn’t just asian —his name sounds exactly like a PANDA..! He’s in a lilly-white music genre, sure, but he IS NOT WHITE..! Thank God..!

Tennis is your raquest? You love Venus Williams. Her raw POWER..! Oh, she’s BLACK, you say...? You didn’t notice. But you love her to bits..!

YACHTING - You’re stuck. Better shut up about your yacht.

You can be more creative than that...

Ask them if the hijab can be removed without removing the head of the doll... if no... note the lack of realism.

Going one step further, a special package can be created: 72 nude hijab barbies given to a suicide bomber before his ‘mission.’ They will accompany him to his afterworld paradise.

For the sake of diversity - there should be MAGA caps for Barbie’s also.

But we all know this has nothing to do with diversity

My first thought too. Muslim Kens will come with genital mutilation kits, Hijab Barbies with hidden scars. Then there’s the usual: Trailer Trash Barbies, Homeless Barbies complete with Walmart shopping carts, etc…

When the Net was new, one of the first funny pages was devoted to funny Barbie names, open for contributions….yikes, must have been ‘95 or ‘96.
