A Muslim woman was fired/asked to leave her A & F job because of her head scarf?
A & F is so loud that it makes your ears bleed, stanks of high hell because of whatever they spray in there, and generally makes racist, offensive, piss-poor quality items. But, that’s still not related to my point and I am not sure where this discussion went…
Her headscarf isn’t a FASHION STATEMENT. Her headscarf is part of her religious practice. THE FUCKING END. Anything related to one’s practice, whether it be holy undergarments, if you’re Mormon, a yarmulke if you’re Jewish, a headscarf if you’re Muslim, is your right and are you are not to be discriminated against for it. What they did is illegal and has NOTHING to do with dress code.
A company dress code, whether it be through retail or a law office or a bank or a grocery store, or ANYWHERE, is a guideline, yes, but her HEADSCARF isn’t about accessorizing. It’s about faith and practice, which none of us should ever be discrimated for or against, simply because some shitty, overpriced mall store is racist enough to think that Muslims don’t represent their demographic.
FUCK A & F. For reals.
