Well, a lot of superheros wear masks.  Wait, maybe they're ALL secret Muslims!

When not garbed as her alter ego, Jiya does not wear a burka, or even a less conservative headscarf over her hair

I, for one, find this to be awesome.  The burka is just a disguise.

Yeah, a disguise for homicide bombers.

HARVEY?! Thank God, you're back.  Two-Face was just here!  TWO-FACE WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH HARVEY!?!?

Tragically she was a short lived heroine. She saved 3 families from Christian missionaries, pulled a woman from a burning car, and rescued a puppy from drowning. But she forgot that she needed a male family member to escort her in public, so was and so was stoned to death at the end of the first book.

Saw this a week ago. Thought it was dumb and still absurd as hell. But then drew back a bit and well... For Pakistani standards, it's pretty cool. Obviously they have a long way to go, but it's something. So that's good.

Well this is great news for Pakistani girls being repressed by their families... or it would be, if it weren't for the fact that if they dared to read comics or watch tv they would probably be murdered by their families, to preserve the family's honor (or if they're lucky, just maimed with acid).

Yes, it's a lovely part of the world for women!

And every bit to to help educate the children is one more push towards sanity later on.  It's an attempt to change the direction of the boat.  It won't happen on a dime.   Maybe in 30 or 40 years they will be where the western was in the 1800's, and stop with all the killing of women and children.  Maybe in 100 years the rednecks over there will be as openly derided as they are in the U.S.

Or, you could just do nothing and biatch and moan about how bad the problem is without actually doing or supporting any effort at change.

I do support it. It's a good start.

Pay no attention to the woman behind the curtain?

I was prepared to hate it, but the more I read, the more I like it.
I also think I "like" the way the burka, being the tool of oppressors, is turned back on those very oppressors by being used as a shield as she fights them.

Now why didn't I think of that?

Seriously, I heard about this sometime last week.  I wanted to submit it to Fark, but I had no clever headline.    Subby didn't either, but your comment is full of win.

Malala Yousafzai is more of a hero then this

/but like previously mentioned, Pakistan looks like it's getting better with getting with the times
 
2013-07-28 09:01:54 AM
Does she have the power to get gang raped then stoned to death for daring to get gang raped?
 
2013-07-28 10:12:22 AM
Malala Yousafzai is real, a genuine heroine who'll need protected so she can grow up to do the actual work Annihil (?) & Burka Avenger do in the funnies.
Tnx subby, FirstNationalBastard, SpankyMcStupid, danielscissorshands & dopekitty74!

Looking like a badass ninja is probably the best reason to wear a burqa.

I always thought the burka looked more like:

Idiot ex-friend of mine thinks women wearing burkas is "not so bad."  His reasoning is that women continued to wear burkas even after they were "liberated", ignoring the extremely probable reason that despite their "liberation", they would still be under social pressure by strict, fanatical families or neighbors.

(He doesn't fully understand what a burka is either: he seems to think it means any woman wearing a headscarf. As he has argued, if Middle Eastern women prefer to be modest, it's not a bad thing.)

The only smart reply I could come up with that is "If you don't think it's that bad, then you wear one."

/He hasn't taken up that offer; he continues to immodestly parade around in his shorts.

I wonder if someone actually could fight in a burka? They look like a garment designed to keep ones' slaves in tow.

Agreed. I thought that was a beautiful moment of parallel thought they had -- realizing their symbol of oppression resembles a symbol of power in other cultures. It made me smile to think that little girls forced to wear burkas could at least feel like superheroes while doing it. And maybe someone of them will take a hint and realize that anonymity grants power. It would be amusing if the men turned around and banned the burka because of an anonymous uprising.

You're a funny guy. I've travelled to the Mideast on business.

When it comes to Mideast, I would say its their choice/responsibity. And they always choose wrong (against my worldview, haha). Right for them.

The business world is watching their archaic ideas of society very carefully.

Of course, a "secret identity" would do nothing to protect her when there is no rule of law, let alone when the police state openly sides with her enemies. No detective work is even needed on the part of the bad guys, they just start killing any woman they think might be the Burkha Avenger, all the while proclaiming that the killings will continue until the real Burkha Avenger disappears for good. If they don't add her to the mass grave by random chance (or if they do and a successor decides to take up the cause), eventually the executions will make the very people she's trying to stand up for start turning on her even while she rescues them, willing to kill themselves just to stop the government sanctioned slaughter the only way they can.
