|nopleasingdrama||02:40 pm - Introductions|
Hello everyone! I'm new so I thought I'd make an intro post.
My name is Môrgan, and I'm a Jewish lady, but I more-or-less practice something called "Tzniut" which is basically the Jewish version of Hijab, and I am just so happy to find a place like this where we can discuss current issues, share fashions, and post links to fun sites.
This is my favorite site for scarves: Tznius.com
The clothes arent that nice, but the scarves are really nice, and theyre really big, I've had no problem getting them to cover my head and neck (although if you have long hair, like me, you may want to tie it up a bit.
Anyhow, Im glad to be a part of this!
Welcome to the community !
Out of curiousity, where do you live right now ? Just that I've never seen any jewish women wearing scarves in the states... then again, not many live in my area.
(I'm mehwish, btw )
Illinois. Im at the University of Illinois right now (Champaign-Urbana) but Im originally from outside of Chicago.

yeah thats what I thought, but the mod said I was okay. ::shrug::
:sigh: I guess I'll be making a post about this so no one else thinks I'm not doing my job, and so no one is rude to you. :\ But thank you for introducing yourself.. I'm happy and excited that you are here!
Its okay. I was just a little worried that too many people would be upset about my pressence here, because I know how protective people can be about personal things, and especially with the amount of animosity that can happen in these communities.
And dont worry, I have not been in any way offended.
Hi there, twitchytwitch
. Just so you know, as the sole moderator of this community, I do
check on the kind of women I allow as members.nopleasingdrama
was courteous enough to leave me a very nice comment introducing herself (which no one else
has) and explained that she had added herself to the community as a mistake. Of course, I told her she was more than welcome to stay a member and post at will. I am glad that she introduced herself and is active in the community, because diversity is good - we can learn about our differences and share our similarities. She is our sister and should be treated as such.
Just as I welcomed her I would hope and expect that everyone else will do the same. At the very least, I expect common courtesies to be shown. Thank you.
Hey, hey, I was just pointin' that out! xD; I wasn't attackin' her or anythin', I was just confused as that was in the rules and all...
Yer actin' like I insulted her or somethin'...
its okay! I think it came from the fact that its hard to tell intent on a tone-less forum, and also I think she was worried about it, so she may have acted on a suspicion.
like I said before though, I wasnt offended, I just wanna be sure no ones uncomfortable with my being here.
>>>its hard to tell intent on a tone-less forum
Alrighty then! Definitely not uncomfortable here, was just confused before. :3
lol! You're right...I'm sorry! XD
