As I’m sure most of you are aware, at least those of you with Facebook accounts, Facebook’s ads derive from things you like, groups you’re a part of, and even from key words you use in status updates. For some bizarre reason Facebook has been plastering the side of my home page with the ad below for the last year or so. About once a week it pops up, and I’ve no idea why, besides the fact that I use the word ‘muslim’ from time to time in status updates.
But hey, I guess it’s nice to see what muslim women are allowed onto the internet, and even to sign up to dating sites apparently. Although I find it funny that they would have display pictures of their faces, or veiled faces as I’m sure plenty are. It seems a little hypocritical that they would be able to use their features, which they are usually forced to cover and be ashamed of, in order to attract a muslim man. But all religions, islam being no exception, are hardly strangers to hypocrisy.
