Humans fascinate me.

I write about extremes in a world where many struggle to find balance. I have an interest in denazification and the fall of the Third Reich, in particular the impact on women and children. I have an interest in cult leaders, the seduction of cult organisations, and the social contagion underlying radicalisation. I have an interest in dehumanisation and the role religion plays.

I am an ex Catholic and an ex Muslim. I am uncertain and molting old spiritual skins. I reject tribal signalling masquerading as morality. Religion intrigues and disappoints me. Religion has betrayed me in the past. Religion can provide the solution. It can also get us all blown up. We get to chose that fate.

Why Bad Hijabi?

It's a satirical name, mocking the ridiculous notion of bad hijab, an actual crime in countries ruled by deranged Islamic regimes, such as Iran. Women receive punishment for being bad hijabis. Mahsa Amini was killed for being a bad hijabi. Nothing happens to me if I am a bad hijabi, I can live my life quite unaware of how dangerous my irreverence and disobedience would be in another part of the world. Western hijab wearing women have a duty to our sisters living in Islamic regimes to use our freedom to promote religious tolerance and choice for women. Hijab cannot be fard or this legitimises the brutality of the IRGC!
