High school student who wears a head covering has the perfect explanation.

17-year-old Rafika Alami is a California-based high school senior. She took the opportunity in her yearbook quote to clarify why she chooses to wear a headscarf. She wasn't trying to make a political statement; as she told BuzzFeed, she just thought it was funny. The over 30,000 people who fav'd it apparently agree.
Under a smiling photo of Alami in headscarf, her quote reads: "Only reason I wear this is to give you females a chance."
If it was possible to put an emoji in your yearbook quote, I imagine we can all agree this lady would go at the end of that.
