I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome. But the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations.

"Burka Avenger" and Problematising the Problematisation of the Burqa

not-punk-enough:

Thank you Autostraddle for correcting that the hero is wearing a niqab, not a burqa. And some of comments made by Haroon Rashid (Pakistani pop star and creator of the series) are problematic. But nonetheless, it is nice to see Pakistan have their own children’s show that isn’t white-washed and westernized.
