allure magazine pushes acceptance of oppressive Islamist symbol

allure magazine is pushing the hijab which symbolizes and epitomizes Islamist oppression of women and is rejected by 57% of the Muslim women living in America.

The July issue of allure magazine headlining a Muslim woman wearing a red, white and blue hijab on the front cover made the news racks and mail boxes just in time for its propaganda to take advantage of the Fourth of July.  The magazine also included eight pages of hijab photographs.  The allure cover headline states:  “This is an American Beauty.”  Sounds just like other leftist media such as The Learning Channel which sought to push its propaganda to normalize Islamist program titled “All-American Muslim.”  The cover subheading states: “Meet Halima. Muslim. Model.  Destroyer of Stereotypes.

Two Muslim women, Asra Q. Nomani and Hala Arafa, wrote a column titled “Wearing the Hijab in Solidarity Perpetuates Oppression” that was published on January 14, 2016 by The New York Times.  The column states in part:  In the eight times the word hijab, or a derivative, appears in the Koran, it means a “barrier” or “curtain,” with spiritual, not sartorial, meaning. Today, well-intentioned women are wearing headscarves in interfaith “solidarity.” But, to us, they stand on the wrong side of a lethal war of ideas that sexually objectifies women as vessels for honor and temptation, absolving men of personal responsibility.   This purity culture covers, segregates, subordinates, silences, jails and kills women and girls around the world.

Pew Research found that only forty three percent (43%) of American Muslim women wear hijabs according to an article published by NPR on April 21, 2011.  The NPR article states in part,

“The split between women who’ve covered and women who’ve never done so has existed for decades. But now a generation of women is taking off the headscarf, or hijab.” Therefore, after six years of “a generation of women taking off the hijab” the number of Muslim women now wearing the hijab in America is likely even less than forty three percent.  NPR reports:   Rasmieyh Abdelnabi, 27, grew up attending an Islamic school in Bridgeview, Ill., a tiny Arab enclave on Chicago’s southwest side. It’s a place where most Muslim women wear the hijab.  Abdelnabi explains why she stopped wearing the hijab.  She says that Islam teaches modesty — but wearing the hijab is taking it a step too far.  “I’ve done my research, and I don’t feel its foundation is from Islam,” she says. “I think it comes from Arab culture.”

The majority of Muslim women in America reject the hijab because:

  • The hijab symbolizes Islamist oppression.
  • These Muslim women live in America where the law of the land gives them that right.
  • These Muslim women want to Americanize their appearance and blend in not stand out.

If allure magazine truly believes in publishing something that would be the “Destroyer of Stereotypes” as the subheading of its article states then they should have published a photo of a Muslim woman on the cover without the hijab.  The hijab does not symbolize the freedoms and liberties bestowed upon all women who are under the protection of the United States Constitution.

Florida Family Association has prepared and email for you to send to the companies that advertised in the July issue of Allure magazine to express concern regarding promotion of the oppressive, Islamist hijab.  The email urges allure’s advertisers to be more careful in the future to sponsor content that embraces the liberties of the United States Constitution instead of Islamist tenets that oppress women and minorities.  Top advertisers include L’Oreal, Procter and Gamble, Unilever Home and Personal Care and Edgewell Personal Care.  For the list of the companies and products advertised click here.

  1. Ignore Troll Media

    I actually recommend NOT contacting the magazine. This a is a great example of a typical modern media PR stunt. This cover is simply engineered to anger people on both “sides” in hope of creating “controversy” online for Nike and Allure magazine to profit off people’s emotions via clickbait media.

    The magazine simply hopes people will share this trollish trash on social media and argue about it online where clicks are monetized and anger, hate and divisiveness are literally money drivers. They don’t make money unless they can generate fake online controversy and the combo of a hand sign waving black Muslim woman with braces and hijab is sure to do the trick. Don’t fall for it – these magazines are simply in “last gasp” mode before they go the way of the do-do bird. Ignore them and and their manufactured outrage stunts and they will die off even faster.

    Allure is purposefully trolling and that is the exact response they want. Nike is now courting Muslims by making hijabs and they are Allure’s major advertisers, so rest assured this cover is an expensively produced troll game designed to produce maximum political outrage. Both companies are desperate for attention, so don’t give it to them. It would be better to just send the letter to Nike in any case because Allure is running this troll campaign on their behalf anyways.

    If you complain to Allure, you are visiting their website and therefore giving them an opportunity to monetize your outrage. They love the outrage because then they can claim more clicks and more ROI and therefore charge more for advertising. Why would you want to help them make money off this obvious troll trash?

    These trashy woman-hating fashion and beauty magazines are on their last legs and trolling for controversy is all they’ve got left. Allure is one of the worst offenders, but all the fashion and beauty industries are involved in manufacturing and monetizing political and social outrage online concerning Islam and transgender these days. If we ignore them, magazines like this will simply collapse and go away like many before them.

    In an age where our outrage is monetized online, the best way to fight back against obvious trolling like this is to not fight at all. Put your energy into real world stuff and don’t give the professional trolls in the media your attention or money. I don’t.
