30 kickass moments #passiveterrorism was taken down

Here's to woke Twitter saving the day again.

When I first heard about the U.S. Military White Paper declared women wearing hijabs as “passive terrorism”, to say I was a little disappointed is a huge understatement.

According to The Intercept, the report, issued by the Air Force Research Laboratory, was titled Countering Violent Extremism: Scientific Methods & Strategies, and includes a chapter setting forth unsubstantiated theories of radicalization, including the idea that support for militant groups is driven by “sexual deprivation” and that headscarves worn by Muslim women represent a form of “passive terrorism.”

Seriously: are we really going to go there and assume every woman who wears a hijab is terrorist?

Thanks to an incredible community of women online, the white paper was turned from serious to a whole lot of ridiculous.
