angel. massachusetts. 18. Muslim. i'm a queer Ugandan-American feminist who wants to end systematic oppression and stretch the boundaries of my mind until I've learned it all.

As irritating as it is, it’s also very satisfying when ignorant guys on OKCupid (why is it always the dudes?) message me about being pro-queer rights and Muslim.

From his first message:

His reply to my essay/novel:

And I’m just sitting here like:

Oaky, messaging him the Joe Biden laughing gif was antagonistic. I admit it. I shouldn’t have done it.


I’m probably an asshole.

I definitely don’t care.

Awww, he wants to daaaaate meeeeeee. Too bad I don’t date assholes.

Aaaaaand then I blocked him.

There are literally books written on how in the 1940s or so, when scientists were studying penguins and realised they were sometimes flamboyantly homosexual, they were so horrified that the scientific community as a whole pretty much decided to pretend those observations didn’t exist.

Like, dude, this is not a new thing.

(also I love your face)

I love YOUR face!

Also, his example of “rasoola” is COMPLETELY fucked up, because the word is “rasooll’ullah” (or however you spell it) and it means “messenger of God (Allah).” The “a” at the end IS THE ENDING FOR GOD, and NOT the feminine “a” ending.

So he’s doubly-super-duper wrong.

But, well, ACTUALLY, the “-ah” ending of “Allah” is, to my knowledge, feminine - and the “Al-” beginning is masculine. Therefore, it’s the ONLY GENDERLESS WORD IN ARABIC (which is super-duper gendered), and indicates that God is both male and female, and neither male nor female.


Reblogging again for extra commentary.  I love it when you get all scholarly and kick bigot butt.

This is why
You two are my favorites.

Somehow my password doesn’t work for tumblr anymore and I can’t access it/change it on my computer so now I’m freakin out.



the pro-life movement can be summed up by the fact that one of my friends who’s pregnant was taking the bus home from downtown when all the people from the March for Life were also leaving and she asked a young girl sitting in the priority seating if she could sit down because she’s pregnant and the girl replied, “well I’m really tired, i was at the march all day.”

"as pain wraps itself around your wrists
and the vines of worthlessness
curl around your throat
listen to the sounds of
the falling leaves
for they are hope
and love
and the doves
lay their nests
of hope
on your shoulders."

if today I lose hope,
please remind me that Your plans
are better than my dreams"

that “thirsty” dude hitting you up and checking up on you all the time is probably the dude that actually cares about you.

Oh shut the fuck up girls have no obligation to date guys just because they show basic kindness towards them, stop guilting girls into liking you back

"It’s always a trial
to roll out of bed
because the voices
in my head are begging
me to fight,
but I don’t believe
their cheap psychology.
My mom was worried
and asked if I lived
in the
or future;
I told her that I was
constantly replaying my past
and dreaming about the future;
I felt like my life was slipping
under me and there was
nothing I could do about it."
