what do you find compelling about the idea of yue wearing a hijab?
The origin of Yue wearing a headscarf didn't actually properly originate with me. I read it in a short first chapter of a discontinued fic from almost 2 years ago that has since been deleted, and the author has moved on to the star wars fandom. But the idea stuck with me, and so I created the tag on AO3, and whenever I write her, or commission artists, she is wearing a white headscarf, so the idea in popularity originates from me
Yue's white hair is a spirit blessing. I have tried to do a lot of research to write this as respectfully as possible: a lot of cultures worldwide wear hair coverings as a link to their religion or spirituality, so Yue covering her hair shows a different interpretation of her spirituality, in modern setting or context where she gives back the spirit blessing but stays alive.
Here is where I made a mistake.
In my writing I always make sure to say "headscarf", because "hijab" is a Muslim-specific word, and is not just the hair covering but a way of being spiritual directly linked to Islam. And I mistakenly used the tag "hijabi Yue" before I had fully realised this was not how I should be tagging her.
I am now making efforts to correct this, creating a new AO3 tag "Yue wears a headscarf" that will hopefully be canonised, and I will be editing tumblr posts where possible to change the language and tagging used. It was not my word to use, and although creating content for a minority I am not a part of originated with good intentions, the resulting tag should not have been used, and I apologise for using it. I am not Muslim (nor do I wear a headscarf and I'm not part of a community that does), and I have not been writing Yue as Muslim, so I should not have been using the term hijabi.
I encourage others who create content of Yue wearing a headscarf and are not Muslim, to not tag with the word "hijab", but instead "Yue wears a headscarf".
My intention is always to create content to uplift and celebrate others, and I want to do so as respectfully and thoughtfully as possible
