This is really important. There is a lot of anti-black sentiments in south Asian communities. We can’t let white supremacy keep us apart, we need to stand in solidarity.
quixotici have an insatiable thirst for knowledge

A baby has a better grasp on race relations than a full grown adult
This should tell you all you need on a number of levels
Whiteness is a perceptual framework that keeps the thinking process at infantile levels.
SHE FUCKING DID IT AGAIN UGH LACI STOP. TALKING. ABOUT. ISLAM.
STOP. IT. RIGHT. NOW.
the links in that tweet btw are:
both are links talking about not praying during menstruation. laci says this was a “common practice in her family.”
YES BITCH BECAUSE IT’S A MUSLIM RULE. ALSO GUESS WHAT? MUSLIM WOMEN HAVE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT THIS.
if you read other posts where muslim women fucking hate the crap out of your islamophobic ass, you will see that these issues have already been addressed. SOME MUSLIM WOMEN THINK THIS IS A PROBLEM. OTHERS DO NOT. OTHERS THINK: HEY WE DON’T HAVE TO PRAY FOR A WEEK, FANTASTIC.
also, do you know why we don’t pray during menstruation? btw the answer is not BC ALLAH HATES U GUISE. the answer is blood. if we even have a cut and are bleeding, we are impure. we have to clean ourselves before we pray. so if we are in a state of bleeding all the fucking time as tends to happen during menstruation, would it not be awfully convenient to have to do wudhu like every few minutes? wouldn’t that actually be a greater injustice/a method in which islam would TOTALLY disregard the challenges of menstruating bodies?
YOU ARE GROSSLY MISINFORMED AND YOU NEED TO GET THE FUCK OUT OF OUR CONVERSATIONS AND CONCERNS. SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU ISLAMOPHOBIC BITCH.
ugh you guys i haven’t had dinner yet and my hands are shaking so much BECAUSE I AM SO FUCKING ANGRY RIGHT NOW UGH.
ALSO THANK GOD I CAN’T PRAY DURING MY PERIOD, PROSTRATING WOULD BE A PAIN.
"this was a common practice in my family"
that would be because
(Again: emphasis on SALAH. blood invalidates SALAH, which you need to be pure in order to pray. regular prayer/talking to god is something you can do in any state at any time)
also, adding this to the masterpost
“When a man invades a woman’s body space without her invitation, touches, grabs and gropes her without her consent, he violates her sovereignty of person. He evicts her from her own body. Our bodies are our first homes. If we are not safe in our bodies, we are always homeless.” - Shailja Patel

The western world is quick to call ISIS an Islamic State but still won’t call Palestine a state.
I have no respect for people that are “skeptical” of bisexual teens. You are the reason so many of us bisexual adults spent our teen years in one closet or another. Dealing with that shit was some of the most damaging stuff I’ve had to deal with and I will NOT sit idly by while you do this to more kids. So kindly keep your opinions in the garbage where they belong.
shout out to all my sisters who still wear hijab, niqab, and burka every day with all the islamophobia goin on
