Trying to make the oppression of women look cool? A billboard supposedly located in Iran claims Batman and Zorro have never been defeated because they wear the hijab.
The image is currently a big hit on Reddit, and has been shared widely on Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets.
According to the post on Reddit, the billboard reads as follows:
Have you ever seen Batman or Zorro getting defeated? No! because their Hijab is proper. So you too mind your Hijab sister!
Some claim the image is a photoshopped parody, either in support of wearing the hijab, or as a satirical critique of the hijab, depending upon one’s political perspective.
