'Playboy' Makes History: Noor Tagouri Poses Wearing A Hijab -- Offensive Or Praiseworthy?

Amanda Katherine

Muslim journalist Noor Tagouri makes Playboy history as the first woman to pose for the men's magazine wearing a hijab. The bold move has sparked controversy among many. While some see the photos as a praiseworthy move of activism, others claim Tagouri is mocking modesty and offending women by appearing in the magazine with a hijab.

"The men and women in this series will change how you think about business, music, porn, comedy, gaming and more."
"As a badass activist with a passion for demanding change and asking the right questions, accompanied by beauty-ad-campaign looks, Tagouri forces us to ask ourselves why we have such a hard time wrapping our minds around a young woman who consciously covers her head and won't take no for an answer."

"I believe in rebellion as a form of honestly. To be our most authentic self is to rebellious."
"It's just negative energy and unhealthy."

"I know what it's like to have the narrative of our community be skewed and exploited in the media.

"Hey, I know what it's like to be misrepresented in the media. I won't do that to you. I want to tell your story because it's important and deserves justice."

Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner previously stated that he opposed "religiously mandated, chastity-centered codes of sexual morality" in his 1966 debate with William Buckley.

According to the Washington Post, Hugh Hefner actually opposed any limit on public sexual expression, as he considered it to be fundamentally antithetical to freedom itself.

"Muslim women especially feel the burden to appear normal. … With all the negative assumptions they face about their religion, they must actively assert their lack of oppression, rather than simply living it out in their daily lives."
