Comment:I think you wearing any strict religious wear would exude the same response from men (e.g., if you were dressed as a nun they would respond similarly). More importantly, I'm a little shocked how you could wonder if you are a muslim when you admit you didn't really know what a muslim is - you should know about the prophet to truly believe he is a messenger. It seems you are open and searching, but you need to learn and understand instead of blindly accepting a religion tied to a positive experience. I hope once you do your research you do realize Islam is the right way - embracing Islam with knowledge is more powerful (and sincere) than accepting what has been handed to you.

Comment:I've never had problems with men sexually harassing me and I don't wear hijab. Your assumption that men will treat non-hijabed women as sex objects is actually pretty insulting to both men and women.

Comment:I found this to be so real. I became muslim in 2008 right before I was married. I realized the reaction from men was different & I was looked upon with a greater degree of respect.

Comment:that is why it is wast of time trying to explain to women from the west who never tried and felt wearing Hijab, speaking as a man Hijab will earn women more respect and present her as femal not as sex object.
