Clothes Confusion


Inspired by something I witnessed on a bus once. I sat opposite of two women in nikabs, which is a rare sight around here (usually it’s just scarfs). Then a bunch of kindergarten children got on, and when they saw the women, one little boy yelled “Ninjas!” and all the other children more or less went, “Oooooooh!”.

Their teacher tried to explain that the women weren’t ninjas, but I later heard two of the boys speculate on whatever or not the women were hiding their awesome ninja swords under their clothes.

One of the most entertaining bus rides I’ve ever been on. :D

When i was a 6 my mom came to my school she wears a head scarf and a boy in my class thought she was a super hero. My mom played along and told the kid stories about her adventures! :D

In Sweden a couple of not so flattering nicknames for niqab-wearers are ninjas or sometimes "Phantom blots" (That ghost thingy from the Donald Duck comics)

I had a similar experience when I was doing a project on Saudi Arabia and a kid pointed out the woman's clothing made them look like ninjas. Causing my friend to explain to him, but he still talked about how they could actually be ninjas.
