A hoejabi is a sexually promiscuous Muslim woman who wears the headscarf to appease her family by projecting a pious outward appearance, but as soon as her parents are on a weekend trip, she brings the whole football team to run a train on her.
The sahabah (companions) and their descendants (i.e. the tabi'un) have commented on the deceptive nature of women in the following hadith:
“”The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “I was shown Hell and I have never seen anything more terrifying than it. And I saw that the majority of its people are women.” They said, “Why, O Messenger of Allah?” He said, “Because of their ingratitude (kufr).” It was said, “Are they ungrateful to Allah?” He said, “They are ungrateful to their companions (husbands) and ungrateful for good treatment. If you are kind to one of them for a lifetime then she sees one (undesirable) thing in you, she will say, ‘I have never had anything good from you.’”

In the 21st century, men live in the midst of a false rape accusation crisis. There is no retort to this scenario whatsoever. But this is not a new thing. These false accusations have always existed. However, societies which acted against the false-rape-accusation-culture are the ones which thrived. The ones which placated the false accusation culture in order to appease female sensibilities are the ones which died out or weakened. One of the strongest examples of a backlash against false accusations is in the form of decriminalization in the Muslim scripture which rules out marital rape:
“”Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will.
|—Coran, verse 2:223|
Promoters of sin
Hoejabis often find it unfair that they are characterized as more likely to be hell-bound than men. But they fail to look inwards at their sins. For example, hoejabis could alleviate one of the most common sins committed by normie males – masturbation. Most average males or somewhat below average males are seen as low-lives by their female counterparts. As such, although being theoretically normal, in practise, they becomes failed normies, 99% of whom masturbate, or do other sinful / weird fetishes with their genitalia in order to curb the sexual frustration. If these hoejabis accepted mahr proposals by low-tier normie Muslims or introverted ones, these low-tier males wouldn’t be masturbating – masturbating is typically a last resort. Besides the sinful nature of masturbation, masturbation for the especially blueballed may lead to all sorts of future physiological problems such as DGS, i.e. Death grip syndrome.

- Taken literally, the term “hoejabi” (not my coinage) refers to women who see themselves at the crossroads of being “hoes” and “hijabis.” But deeper than that, it mocks all of the negative implications that come with “hoe,” all of the negative implications that come with “hijabi,” and all of the ways that people who are not us try to define our sexualities for us. For me, “hoejabi” symbolizes the way that Muslim women are never granted that middle ground — the word itself is a bridge. It’s empowering, and more important, it’s hilarious. (If you’re not a Muslim woman, don’t even think about using it.)
