My Hijab Should Not Affect My Medical Care
The gynecologist was mid-exam when he asked what I thought of Islamic terrorism. He'd asked me to relax, and, in an effort to make small talk, he'd asked about my upcoming nuptials in Morocco. Now, two years later, I don’t remember exactly how I responded to his rapid pivot to asking my opinion on Muslim extremists, but I do remember how taken aback and put off I was. I never set foot in that doctor’s office again.
