This video popped up on YouTube. I found it very interesting. I've always held high respect for Islam, and this video made me contemplate on hijab. I've always had a good idea about hijab, how women who wear it don't have to worry about suiting others' eyes that much, or how their butt's shaped, or cleavage, and how there's freedom in that. What I didn't realize is that hijab is more than dress, it's the incentive behind it.
It'd be nice to get up and not have to worry too much about my hair, or ALWAYS make sure my legs aren't stubbly. I suppose it's silly to ask if Christian women can practice hijab, because Catholic nuns certainly do, come to think of it.
Hey @ArabianPwincess197, what do you think? Do you know any Christian women in the Middle East, or anywhere else, that practice it? Would you support a Christian practicing hijab?

So long as it was her choice to wear it, and she doesn't face negative consequences for not wearing it, I've got absolutely no problem with it. I respect the reasoning I've seen some women offer for wearing them, and honestly I think they can look nice.
What I have an issue with is people who judge others for wearing or not wearing them. I recall that a Paris theatre refused to perform because a woman in the audience was wearing one. I also recall the recent spate of acid attacks in Iran targetting women whose hijabs weren't "up to code."5
