Actual caption for this photo: 

Oh you know, just hanging out with Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones (and Allah) on the subway platform.

From I Walked Around in a Burqa All Day (and I’m not Muslim)
Some select excerpts:

I didn’t know a thing about Islamic clothing—or that you can’t just go to the burqa shop and get one. Turns out it’s a giant pain in the ass.

And:

After watching 74 YouTube videos and parsing 108 Google search pages, I couldn’t find one article or video explaining if burqas were comfortable or how Americans reacted to seeing someone resembling the Grim Reaper float by them in line at Starbucks

Also:

I didn’t realize the significance of visiting one of the tallest buildings in New York dressed in Islamic garb until we reached the entrance. I felt like a jerk.

Finally:

I caught my reflection in a doorway and thought I looked like Batman.

Read the rest here if you can stomach it.
