Islam and religion mentions Show more
There are LGBT Muslims out there like me who're religious normal folk but deal with ridiculous amounts of prejudice.
When anti-theists say "I don't hate Muslims, I hate Islam", that statement hurts us still. Faith and spirituality has helped plenty of minorities in the MENA region survive our horrible oppression for centuries. It's not something to be disregarded and reduced to such flippant statement.
That's not criticism and simply comes from ignorance of the actual religion & it's history with context etc.
As anarchists we shouldn't fall into the trap of anti-theism. Yes, we should be critical of organised religions, but mostly importantly we need to help our religious comrades dismantling their insidious hierarchies and theocracies !
Islam & muslims are not a monolith ! We're not all salafists/fundamentalists.
Islam has nuances just like any religion.

My hardworking mother who's a better person than most would give her credit for, finally snapped at her shitty good-for-nothing mother (my grandma) & complicit siblings (aunt and uncles). Cutting ties.
She went on a vacation to Somaliland with relatives she likes after faking sickness because her boss won't let her take her annual days off. Even tho her MS attacks get worse with stress and her boss' verbal abuse triggering her.
I got to basically tell my aunt to fuck off and currently holding the fort down well with my brothers. I hope I grow up to be 1/4 as strong as my mom.

mosque shooting + racism mention Show more
social media platforms allowing racist vitriol is directly leading to the deaths of Black, brown, and/or Muslim bodies. it makes me incredibly sad that this had to happen for people to understand things like Islamophobia are not restricted to the internet, but come out in real life and end in the deaths of our brothers and sisters. May Allah grant them the highest places of Jannah
