Hijab is NOT a symbol of diversity.

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too
in response to reader comment: The Clueless Lefties are Totally Lost about the Cause of the Recent Uprising in Iran by Iranian Women

Dear Readers, DNM correctly implicated big tech companies for being clueless about Hijab. I have seen tens of hand-drawn posters by big tech companies where they show Hijab clad women to emphasize how diverse they are. Hand-drawn posters are contrived by-definition.

The companies do not know that Hijabs are less a sign of diversity and more a sign of religion. By deliberately promoting hijabs these companies are promoting a religion and its political hegemony. Would you display a poster with a cross or marks on foreheads or a yarmulke for diversity? Should you? If not, then why don't you just-say-no to the Hijab brigade?
