On Friday I went to the local masjid next to my university to listen to the khutbah and see some of the ladies I have met before. I haven't converted yet, but out of respect I have always worn a headscarf when I visit the masjid starting with my first visit a few months ago.
After I left the lecture I went with a friend to Sam's Club (huge bulk grocery store) and to Best Buy and decided not to take off the scarf. It was great! Very comfortable, not scary, etc. My friend said that there were some people looking while I wasn't paying attention but I didn't care because I knew it wasn't the gross kind of staring, also the people staring were women, not men :-D
I live in a "conservative" state here. I really expected someone ignorant or just rude to do or say something, but no one did! I even got a few shy smiles and a few "excuse me ma'am"s that I never got before. The only people who really stared were from Chile and were here for a convention, so I feel pretty good about my prospects here as far as covering in the future.
Overall it was a really good experience, thanks God and I know that when I convert (God willing) I will feel a lot more comfortable about that transition. One less thing to worry about! :-D
