La Source des Femmes (2011)

literally everything she said is historically accurate though

the concept of “hijab” existed long before Islam was founded. in pre islamic arabia and throughout the region, women regardless of religion would cover their hair and it was often a symbol of class (other than the concept of covering hair being cultural in christianity and judaism) 

women who were higher class and were from a wealthy family covered their hair to distinguish themselves from poorer classes

if wasn’t until after the founding of islam where covering hair was incorporated into muslim culture as “hijab”. there is no mention of hijab in the quran but there is a strong emphasis on modesty. there is however an explicit line in the quran directed towards men:

In Chapter 24 known as an-Nur (the Light), in verse 30, Allah commands Prophet Muhammad as follows:

قُلْ لِلْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ يَغُضُّوْا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَ يَحْفَظُوْا فُرُوْجَهُمْ, ذَلِكَ أَزْكَى لَهُمْ.

“Say to the believing men that: they should cast down their glances and guard their private parts (by being chaste). This is better for them.”

This is a command to Muslim men that they should not lustfully look at women (other than their own wives); and in order to prevent any possibility of temptation, they are required to cast their glances downwards. This is known as “hijab of the eyes”.

Alex (1976 – September 6, 2007) had a vocabulary of over 100 words, but was exceptional in that he appeared to have understanding of what he said. For example, when Alex was shown an object and was asked about its shape, color, or material, he could label it correctly. He could understand that a key was a key no matter what its size or color, and could figure out how the key was different from others. One day, he asked what color he was, and learned “grey” after being told the answer six times. This made him the first non-human animal to have ever asked an existential question. [x]

Alex’s last words were also “You be good, see you tomorrow. I love you.” [x] 

These were the same words that Alex would say every day when his owner left the lab.

“You be good, see you tomorrow. I love you.”


a parrot actually said these words, and meant it, before he died.

I’m getting choked up

Alex the parrot is actually one of my favorite animal intelligence stories/examples. What a smart birb.

Why am I emotional right now?

imprisoned for 2D penguin crimes

For those of you out of the loop there is an anime called Kemeko Friends. I haven’t watched it but the general premise is to teach kids about african wildlife. A lot of the proceeds for the show go to helping zoos and wildlife conservation. For this one particular tie in they put the characters in pens with the animals to drum up support for the zoo.

For some reason this penguin “Grape-kun” fell in love with the penguin mascot from the show “Hululu”. It was making courting gestures and praising it as if were an actual mate.

This would be cute if Grape-kun didn’t stop eating to worship his waifu every second of the day going as far as to neglect the rest of his flock to be near her. Hence why the weeb penguin was taken away from his waifu.
