Twitter Reacts to Canadian Politician Telling Malala Yousafzai She Must Remove Her Headscarf If She Wants to Teach
Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday.
You know how there’s certain people who, if you ever met, you’d just be at a complete loss for what to say, simply from the sheer paralysing awe of being in their presence, and fear of saying something so stupid or wrong that it caused a bubble of pure W R O N G to manifest and percolate through the fabric of the universe?
Imagine this absolute NOBODY telling Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Prize laureate who was shot in the head by the Taliban, that she must remove a symbol of her culture & religion, to “teach in Quebec”. Get fucked, she has a million better opportunities, she’s MALALA. https://t.co/mntlD638IE— Aleesha (@a_leesha1) July 7, 2019
Actually, in civilized countries, people aren’t required by their government to forget their faith for the 8 hours they’re at work.— Gail Helt (@ghelt) July 6, 2019
Malala literally got shot while defending her right to education.— #DearNonNatives (@dearnonnatives) July 7, 2019
You think a musty ass white man saying “no” unless she removes her headscarf is going to stop her? https://t.co/0hvEHuR5MQ
Malala Yousafzai was shot in the face by the Taliban for being outspoken on girls' rights 2 an education— Rohan Javet Beg (@RohanBeg) July 7, 2019
Now, she's told she wouldn't be able to educate in Quebec because she's visibly religious
Why can't the state and the patriarchy just stop policing women's minds and bodies? https://t.co/r1CHctNAFQ
You can’t make this up, Malala was shot in the head for trying to receive an education, created an org to advance girls education around the world only for a white man in a suit to mansplain to her, her rights. https://t.co/szDQP7jMEV— Aima Niqabae (@AimaNiqabae) July 7, 2019

Education minister says Malala Yousafzai is welcome to teach in Quebec, but needs to take off her headscarf.— Steve Faguy (@fagstein) July 5, 2019
Because we’re open and tolerant, see. https://t.co/2WBJ0n35KU
I sincerely mean this when I say y'all elected a bunch of complete dickhead racists in Quebec, and this is coming from somebody who lives in Doug Ford's Ontario— Andray (@andraydomise) July 6, 2019

Honestly, I wish politicians would stop using Muslim women as props in their photos. They want the “oh, look - I got a pic with Malala!” cool factor but don’t want to actually listen to her or women like her on what they actually need.— Sarah Mushtaq (@SarahMushMush) July 7, 2019
