Sometimes someone starts the right blog at the right time.
It was on BoingBoing, in case you are wondering how I discovered it.
My regular readers know I don't get excited about blogs I stumble upon too often. This is an exception.
After the controversies of this week over the firing of one J. Williams (which I do have an opinion on, but the purpose of this blog is not to get political) this new blog answers the timely question: exactly what is Muslim garb? How can we easily tell a Muslim from a non-Muslim through their clothes?
So this new Muslins Wearing Things blog seeks to inform the public as to official and unofficial Muslim garb. And make a few good points along the way.
I will be interested in seeing where this goes. Will anyone learn what this blog is trying to educate us to? Or will it drown in a sea of hatred? Especially as the writer has a "ask me anything" link: wonder how long that will last. Will he or she post the questions, with answers? I can't wait to see.
I hope this blog lasts for a while because it is awesome. But two comments....
1.would be nice to see more picture of females - because so much of the ignorant beliefs seem to center around women...
2. How do we get the ignorant to read that blog in the first place?
