Toronto Dance Theatre

 

These pictures were taken outside the Toronto Dance Theatre and School. I love celebrating Toronto through the blog. For me, the whole purpose of the blog is to celebrate the joy and beauty all around us. 

So something rather unpleasant happened on the weekend: Being a Muslim woman, you're watched at times with a keen eye, particularly by conservative Muslim men who have a very rigid idea of how you should dress and how you should behave.  I think I dress very modestly, not for my religion necessarily, but because I want to. But, one blogger's modesty is another conservative's un-Islamic crime. So, anyway, on the Sunday, a guy, who I don't know, but clearly identified himself as a Muslim, told me (via comments on the blog, and twitter) that my blog and short skirts were un-Islamic, and that I should be ashamed. 

Sigh.

Anyway back to the beauty....did you remember to enter the earrings giveaway? What are you waiting for - head over here now and enter! 

Thanks for stopping by and for being open to beauty and joy.

  4. I can only speak for myself, but I think you dress modestly and beautifully. It's hard to deal with hurtful comments on the internet (I think they are a pretty cowardly bunch) but you know who you are and you know your beliefs. Everyone has their own choices and people should respect that! Burka or no burka you are beautiful and those pants are bangin' :D Have a great day!!

  12. There will always be people who will have something unpleasant to say. Sadly, that is human nature working at its best. Take little heed, and continue what you're doing because you're clearly very good at it:) Love the pink in today's outfit, btw! x

  14. Great post, yet again :) Too bad for the mean comment. This person is clearly very superficial and I wouldn't value his perspective if I were you. I think you look fantastic without flaunting it. You shouldn't be ashamed, you should be proud! If anyone, he should be ashamed for clearly finding what one wears at least as important as a fashionista like you ;)
