Wearing Hats in School
Posted 12/10/07
Ok so here's the story.
This morning, a senior was going around school telling people to wear hats on Thursday (hats aren't allowed). His argument was that we should be able to wear our hats because the Arabs can wear their turbans. Yes, he literally said "the Arabs can wear their turbans." And he later goes on to say " those goddamn Arabs." That really showed me his ignorance. The this one girl says "that's their religion and they would wear it in the country." He says, "Jewish people can't wear their hats." He also says "this is America" and eventually brings up separation of church and state and expressing individuality.

1- What do you think about his comments?
2- Are you allowed to wear hats in school?

I personally think that guy is an idiot. First off, not all Arabs are Muslim and turban isn't the proper term. Also, if a Jewish person wanted to wear a yarmulke, they wouldn't be stopped. About his "this is America" statement, America allows freedom of religion. And for the separation of church and state, the school isn't forcing anybody to wear anything. And finally for his expressing indivduality. For one, his stupid Quiznos hat and the other hat he was wearing isn't required for any religion or culture. Also, how many hundreds of other people have the same hat? It really scares me to know that he's a part of the world's future. I really wish i told him off.

He's one of many ignorant American..

i think it's ok to wear hats as long as it's religious related stuff and you have to wear it for their religions... and some kind of other important reasons.

No, but one of my friend in my old school wore hats because he had a disease that causes his hair to fall off(im sure that's just one of the symptom of the disease..)...

I really wish you'd told him off as well. Men in islam are not obliged to wear something on thier heads, so they can be excluded, but women wear hijabs. That's a big part in islam. Personally, i don't think hats boher people much either, unless it's burning a hole in the back of the teacher. Schools sometimes make stupid rules in the first place.

Unfortunately, due to the acceptance of religious wear in our school, people are making tedious remarks as well. It just pisses me off. "Oh that Muslim girl is wearing her terrorist scarf, and i can't wear my harmless hat?"

Yes, there was a comment like that from a boy. Luckily, the teacher was smart enough and reprimanded him.

Now I can definately see people in this thread going "But liek why don't just muslim goes to muslim school and Jews to a jewish school???!!!11"

Because it's expensive. And too hard.

I think in our school, there is a rule about no hats, but no one pays attention to it, they havent bothered to get rid of the rule. We cant wear bandanas though. I wear a hat to school everyday

Same with me I see students in school who have to wear a hat and it's allowed and one friend had chemotherapy and his hair was gone and they let him wear a hat

I only wear thirties style suit hats and aussie hats. Otherwise hats are bad. Snowcaps are ok for warmth but they're ugly.

This guy is fucking gay. He wore a retarded red hat to school for a whole week. It looked like an over sized jewish hat. But in our school nobody cares.
