THE LOLLIPOP METAPHOR (SWIPE for a closer look >>>) _ Over the years, I've seen many Muslim men fawn over the wonders and wisdom of a woman's hijab in all sorts of ways. For instance, in a metaphorical sense, we've been called diamonds and pearls - precious and desirable, hidden out of plain sight. While I'm sure a lot of these women would rather be called 'women in hijab' (rather than, say, golden nuggets that are waiting for the right man to dig them up), there's one trope that seems to bother sisters more than others: the Lollipop Metaphor. _ The idea is that a lollipop in its wrapper remains pure, and a lollipop without becomes dirty and infested with hungry flies. It's intended as an idealistic view of how a woman's hijab functions. There are all sorts of troubling angles to this that might make a woman's stomach turn - the fact that she's being represented as a thing for consumption; that men will only respect her body if she conceals it; that she cannot expect respect for her body if she uncovers it; that morality and self-control in men do not exist, and she should not expect otherwise; and that validation is given to men who behave as though it's (more) acceptable to flirt with/harass women who don't observe hijab. Pretty gross if you think about it. _ Long story short: the Lollipop Metaphor promotes a very toxic view of gendered responsibility that really rubs me up the wrong way. It totally misrepresents the concept of hijab, too. But that's just me - what's your take?
