The new Barbie is modeled after U.S. fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first American to compete in the Olympics while wearing a head-scarfas if that that alone were worthy of commendation. Muhammads personal accolades aside, Mattel describes the toy as a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll designed to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries.

Muhammad thanked the toy company for announcing her as the companys newest model. Im proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true, she wrote.

The jihad Barbie is the latest in Mattels lineup of diverse dolls called Sheroes, which are based on real-life women. Other dolls include Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas; plus-size model Ashley Graham, a proponent of body positivity and health at every size; and animal rights activist and actress Emmy Rossum.

Earlier this year, Muslim-American activist Linda Sarsour called for a jihad against President Trump. I hope that when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad in the Middle East or on the other side of the world, but here in these United States of America, where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reigning in the White House, she said.

Strangely, progressives never talk about the Iranian women who rip off their headscarves in protest of the Islamic Republics oppression of womenor the chess grandmaster Dorsa Derakhansi, who defected to the U.S. after she was banned from the Iranian national team for her refusal to wear the hijab.

Like most Muslim countries in the Middle East, Islamic law in Iran requires women to wear the hijab in public places. Failure to do so often merits corporal punishment from a guardian or male relativeor a black eye, in other words, in accordance with fundamentalist interpretations of the Koran.

So much for choice.
