This hasn’t been getting as much attention on tumblr as it should. Look up the situation in quebec - seriously. - Sam
For those who are seeing this for the first time, there is a provincial legislation in the works in Quebec that would ban any public employees from wearing “obvious religious attire” (that’s not actually a quote), including the hijab. So that police, post office, school teachers, I’ve guessing medical professions, firefighters, government employees, etc. Thankfully, there is a resistance, and one member of the party proposing the bill has left the party because of it. Everything I just said is a summery, based on recollections. I suggest researching the details over just taking my word for it.
Check this shit out.
Symbols that are okay:
Symbols that are not okay:
Yeah. These jokers want to ban Jewish employees from wearing yarmulkes. Need to wear a turban, headscarf, or similar covering? Fuck yourself, that’s forbidden. You should just wear a tiny ring or earring instead, because you can totally just trade in highly significant religious observances for kitschy jewelry like that.
Also note that they’re not taking down the crucifix in the National Assembly or the giant assfuck cross on Mount Royal, on the grounds that they’ve been around so long that they’re integral parts of Quebec’s history and culture and are basically totally secular you guys.
So yeah, this is 100% straight-up xenophobic bigotry. Dudes are basically trying to ban every religious thing except for Christian religious things, under the clear assumption that “Christian” doesn’t constitute “religious” because it is the baseline and the norm and other religions are simply deviations from it.
Hey. Reblogging this because this is important shit—I have plenty of friends in Quebec, and this is in no way a reflection on any of them (that I know), but crap like this shouldn’t stay quiet.
Consider a wedding ring—it is a symbol of your commitment to one person forever—you wear it with pride, every day, as a symbol of the vows you made—even if you are single and never plan on getting married, you understand and respect that as a right of the person wearing it. Now consider the various religious coverings as listed in the ‘not okay’ image in part of the reblogs—they are also all symbols of life-long commitments to an individual’s beliefs. Now imagine that all of the single people in Quebec are uncomfortable with you flaunting your marriage and attempt to take away your right to wear that symbol at work. Get it?
Even if you don’t believe what they believe or feel compelled to wear the same religious paraphernalia, it should be really fucking easy to understand that this is a PERSONAL thing for them, and that you have zero right to take it away from them because you don’t understand what it means or represents for them.
I know they’re trying to make it look equal by throwing giant ass crosses in there, but that only works if thousands of Quebec residents normally wear giant, fist-sized crosses to their government jobs. I have NEVER seen anyone wear a cross that big outside of church (and I went through 15 years of catholic school and all the church that goes along with that), so I’m guessing that it’s a non-issue; they may as well be trying to outlaw giant foam hands with the pointer finger as a cross (Do those even exist? Does it even matter), because you’re just as likely to see people wearing those everywhere. This thing they’re trying to pass is a thinly veiled attempt to make racist white Catholic people more comfortable. I’m not saying that all white Catholics are racist, but if you’re a white Catholic who lives in Quebec and supports this bill, you’re absolutely racist. Get the fuck out, guys.
There are similar bigoted laws in France. Just reprehensible.
