Peonage is another word for servitude and subjugation. We have always had a Pimping the Poor series and this is part two of my Pimping the Peonage series given the number of articles promoting the Muslim culture of the subjugation of women in our New Zealand media.
The latest Pimping the Peonage article has the misleading headline, ‘Headscarf costs woman job.’
It didn’t cost her a job at all. She was told during the interview that in their workplace they didn’t allow headscarves. She then had the choice to accept the conditions of employment or to reject them.She made it clear in the article that in her case wearing the Hijab was a voluntary decision on her part as she made the decision to start wearing it while in High School.
Ms Mohammadi said she had chosen to wear the hijab when she was in high school once she understood its significance.
“For me it gives me confidence. It’s who I am … it represents me as an individual

It is therefore not a religious requirement and is not compulsory. She has undermined her own Freedom of Religion argument by stating that wearing it is voluntary.She has the choice to wear it or not. Even if she was being forced to wear it by the ideology of Islam it makes no sense at all that she would complain to the Human Rights commission about the employer. Surely the complaint should be about the totalitarian ideology that compels women to wear such a thing?
My daughter has a part time job in a Deli. They have strict headwear rules that she complies with. She does not go running to the Human Rights commission because she is not allowed to wear on her head what she voluntarily chooses to wear on her head when she is not at work.
Just for fun to highlight how ridiculous this all is I have part reproduced the article from A newspaper and I have replaced the word Headscarf or Hijab with the words neck chain as both are symbols of submission and control.
