Does anybody else who studies multiple languages...

 (which I’m assuming is the vast majority of people following this blog) go through waves in terms of their interests/ focus on one language. One month I’ll be so into one language and so motivated to study it, then suddenly I want to get back into another. I’ve been on Spanish for the past few months and today, suddenly I want to watch some Korean dramas and be all about Korean. I’m going to Mexico in less than a week but at the very moment, I’m thinking about when I’ll get to go to S. Korea. But this always happens to me. Sometimes it’s months, sometimes weeks. This is crazy!

Fact: An Iranian astronomer made the first depiction of Andromeda, 1,000 years before Edwin Hubble classified it as a galaxy.

We (the Milky Way) are on a collision course with Andromeda in about 4 billion years in the future. But there’s new evidence that we may have already begun that collision today! Watch to learn more.

Loanwords of French origin in Turkish Language

The French words started to infiltrate the Turkish language in the 1800s, when the administrative reforms (Tanzimat) started taking place in the Ottoman Empire. The extent of French influence was so much that the number of French loanwords was close to 5,000. Most of the French loanwords are still widely used in today’s Turkish.

Some of the words that are still used in modern Turkish together with their new Turkish counterparts:

Conquering a Village

The football team was the last standing free men in the village. A Christian village, under final siege by the Arab conquerors. The conquerors had quickly gone through the village, converting the white men and women and showing them their true roll in the world: to serve their Arab masters. They started with the soccer team. An attractive group, they used to run around with their cocks flopping around as they chased a ball.


Probably the queerest group in town, they used to have orgies in the locker room after a win, circle jerking their uncut cocks. They had girlfriends who loved them and they would sleep with out of norms, but they always had an affection for each other.  Then Arabs came. One by one, each was converted. They started with the team captain Jake. He was capture and bound. They stripped him down, revealing a 6-inch uncut cock with a long foreskin overhang. They told him that they were there to convert his town, it was inevitable that they would. Jake had two options convert willingly or have it forced into him.  “go to hell, I’ll never convert, you are all monsters”. Their leader, Ahmad, smirked and said “we will see about that” as his fellow Arabs forced Jake on his knees. Ahmad pulled out his 7-inch flaccid circumcised cock. Jake just stared in amazement. “what are you going to do with that? Let me go!” Ahmad bent down and looked Jake into his eyes and said “this is what I am going to convert you with.” He then turned Jake around, revealing a toned ass. He slapped his cock on Jake’s ass, giving him an additional inch and a half as he became fully erect. His cock curved straight up and had a jagged scar from his circumcision about ¼ of the way down. Jake’s cock moved and grew with each slapping of the Arab’s cock. He forced it into Jake’s white tight hole as Jake was forced onto all fours.

“ugghhhh” Jake moaned as he was entered. The other Arabs had all pulled their cocks out, each between 6-8 inches, all were circumcised and erect. “You will submit to us, we are your true masters. We will convert you and your friends. A new order, built by our cocks at the expense of your bodies” Ahmad said with each thrust. “Submit and take your place”. Jake was resisting. “I’ll never ugh join your ahhh tribe. I ahhhhhhhhh am a slave to no one.”  Jake’s cock had become completely hard at this point though. His foreskin had retracted while he was on all fours taking Ahmad’s cock as he pounded Jake’s hole relentlessly. The problem for Jake was, it felt so good. Ahmad’s curved cock was perfect for fucking. The angle allowed him to hit a boy’s G-spot just right and Jake was succumbing to his power. “ahhh, please don’t convert me, ahhhh fuck ughhhh” Zain, Ahmad’s right hand man was jerking his tightly cut cock, as all the others were doing, and noticed that the conversion was almost complete. A pool of precum was forming under Jake’s intact cock as each thrust by Ahmad pushed more of it out of his piss slit.  Zain looked at Jake, “It is time that you taste my Arab Muslim cock and complete your conversion.”  Jake was in too much pleasure to even respond at this point. Ahmad, with each thrust, was breaking down Jake’s upbringing, values, social expectations, and sexuality. They were being replaced with obedience, submission and pleasure.

With that, Zain opened Jake’s mouth, without much effort, and forced his cock into it. He began thrusting his cock into Jake’s mouth. The others began yelling “complete his conversion” “Submit and take your natural role white boy” “you are not worthy of our Arab cum” as Jake began sucking willingly on Zain’s cock, having him suck until his circumcision scar and back. “I will now fill your ass with my cum and complete your journey to our side” Ahmad said as he came. His holy semen spilled into Jake’s hole, reprogramming his DNA. Zain did the same. Jake did not spill one drop. They pulled their cocks out of Jake. He remained still. Eyes closed as he swallowed the remains of the cum in his mouth. He stood up.

“Thank you for that, sir. I had no idea how natural that was. Because of your superior cocks, I now know what true pleasure is.” The Arabs surrounded him. “will you submit and convert?” “yes, willingly. There is only one way and it is yours.” They looked at his soft foreskinned cock and said “you will have to convert your cock. As sign of obedience, you will be circumcised and foreskin removed.” He looked at them eagerly as he retracted his foreskin. “thank you sir. I will willingly submit my cock for circumcision and take on the brand of ownership by you.” “after circumcision, we will put your cock in a chastity cage, only to be opened if one of us, your superior Arab masters, wants to use your cock as a dildo. Otherwise, your role is to take our cock.” Jake had an erection hearing this. “thank you, sir, it would be my pleasure to serve my Arab masters in any way I can” “we will convert your friends and your teammate. They will submit, be converted, circumcised and be used in their natural place as servants for our kind. Your girlfriend will become a breeder” Jake began leaking cum out of his piss slit as he thought of all his friends and teammates, guys he used to fuck but now will be serving his new Arab masters, together. All of them presenting their holes with freshly circumcised cocks dangling as they take their superior master’s will into them. “now, take all of our Arab cocks in your hole as we circumcise you and finish your conversion.” “gladly sir” as Jake naturally got on his back, threw his legs up in the air and began getting gangbanged and his conversion was finished.

Three weeks later, his team – his buddies that used to circle jerk their uncut cocks and fuck each other had been converted. In the place of wild soccer boys were obedient, circumcised white slaves who only took Arab cock in them. They were now owned by Arabs and only served Arabs. Put in chastities so they could only receive pleasure when their Arab masters allowed it.

They were only too happy to share this pleasure with others, taking turns bringing friends to their Arab masters so that they could be properly converted. Their girlfriends had quickly disowned them once they too felt the power of a circumcised Arab cock in them. Women were separated and were now used to breed more Arab conquerors.

Having their holes drilled and the school had converted had been a natural process for the citizens. The more converted the more quickly it spread. Soon all had been bound and pounded by the Arabs and the mark of obedience imprinted on their cocks.  Now, they were obedient and conquered men, who presented their holes for their Arab masters as they pounded them for pleasure..

Across the field, the football team of 50 stood against the 10 Arab conquerors and their converts. Physically bigger than anyone on the other side, they believed that if they fucked free thought into the converts and Arabs, they could repel them for good and eradicate them. “this is it gentlemen, we will defeat these Arabs and keep this town a free-thinking place. No one is cutting our cocks into dildos. We will fuck free thought back into them and take back our town. Now everyone, let us go fuck those guys” With that, they ran towards the converts and Arabs, hoping. Resistance was futile. They didn’t succeed on one convert. Sure, they were able to fuck a few, but their uncut cocks were no match for nature. White men were destined to serve cut Arab cock. One by one, they were converted and processed. All fifty of them, never having sucked cock in their lives, were now natural bottom boys along with the rest of the white men who had held them down as their Arab masters instilled obedience in them. The quarterback took the longest to convert. Pounded for over three hours by the different Arab men. In the end thought, after being fucked, circumcised and converted his response was the same as all others: “thank you, sir. My place is to serve you, sir.”

Tbh the Muslim community is way too Arab-centric, Muslims worldwide expect Muslims as a whole even the non Arab ones to be aware of what is happening in Syria, Palestine, iraq etc… (Basically what we consider to be ‘Arab issues’, though it goes without saying Arabs aren’t the only ethnic group actually living in those countries) but Arab Muslims aren’t expected to know (or really I guess care) about the issues of non Arab Muslim majority countries like Nigeria for example (which just like Arab-majority, Muslim majority countries has had to deal with extremist groups of its own, namely Boko Haram) or Muslim majority South Asia and the non Arab ‘Muslim south asian’ fight for Kashmiri independence, or EVEN Muslim-majority Iran and the constant dehumanisation of its Shia and Persian-majority population. There’s also Burma (Myanmar) in east Asia where the Rohingya Muslim minority population of the country are experiencing what Rohingya themselves have described as a genocide at the hand of the many Buddhist extremist groups who also live there but I have yet to see anyone who cares about 'Muslim Arab issues’ also care about all those other non Arab 'Muslim issues’ I’ve just mentioned…. All I’m basically trying to say to all the Muslims who follow me (specially the Arab ones) is to please also take an interest in the struggles of other Muslim communities, As Arabs we’re not the only Muslims and actually (or should that be ironically) we’re a minority when you take into account all the non Muslim Arabs that exist and the fact not everyone in North Africa and the middle east even ARE Arabs (many are imazighen in North Africa’s case and in the middle east’s case many are actually Kurdish, Turkish, Persian, Pashtun, Azeri etc….) and obviously I don’t expect every Muslim to know everything about the struggles the people of every Muslim majority country face that’s near impossible but really it is fair that as Muslim Arabs we also bother to AT LEAST have a common (even if basic) understanding of the struggle of other Muslims the same way so many non Arab Muslims have bothered to learn a little about all of our 'Arab Muslim’ issues.

SO many arab girls at my school are obsessed with south asian culture but refuse to talk about how south asians are abused in the gulf countries lol

the way arabs treat immigrants is disgusting and modern day slavery. they will run channels showcasing our art (bollywood movies, pakistani dramas, desi music etc…) but will exploit and abuse us for their own gain. lmao poc solidarity is such a myth and i hate when people group us all as one

anonymous asked:

so i'm very confused if islam has "feminist" roots or not. i've seen posts saying arab women had rights way before islam (owning businesses,being warriors something like that) but I've also seen many arguemnets that islam was unique in what rights it gave to women (right to divorce). i'm very confused because what i was taught in (my u.s. mostly christian) schools was the former. did the quran not give women the right to divorce and other things they didn't have before?

It doesn’t have feminist roots because a female slave couldn’t refuse her master AND the only way she could be freed was if her master decided on it or she had his child. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a man can marry four women but a woman can only marry one man. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because for a man divorces his wife he just needs to say “Talaq” three times for ANY reason whilst a woman must have a valid reason (if the reason is not absolutely necessary Muhammad has stated that the fragrance of Paradise will be forbidden to her) to divorce her husband which then needs to be approved by a judge. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not be a leader. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not leave her house without her husband’s permission. 
It doesn’t have feminist roots because a woman can not refuse her husband’s request for sex. 
It doesn’t  have feminist roots because a woman can not wear what she wants. 

I could literally go on forever. 

Look at the power the Greek women, the Spartan women, the Egyptian women even the Quraish (the people who lived in Makkah at Muhammad’s time ) women had prior to Islam.

So not Islam doesn’t have feminist roots nor was Muhammad a feminist.

For past few days I’ve been obsessing about Tanya Huff’s novel “The Fire’s Stone”. YOU SHOULD TOO. It’s available on Kindle! It’s available as an audiobook (which I listened to! It’s good!)! It has queer and POC characters!

The story itself is nothing new, but I don’t give a shit, it’s funny, warm, characters are lovable and gorgeous. Please give this book a shot. I don’t want to scream about it alone.

anonymous asked:

Alix is Berber, not Arab, how nice of you to erase her cultural identity of her being an ethnic minority and equalize her to those who have oppressed her people for centuries and still do it today, you must really hate this character, aren't you ever accidentally blinded by your reflective whiteness?

Alright I’ve just woken up and I’m on mobile so I don’t have any links but I feel like this needs answering:

Thomas DID say she was Arab though. Like way back in 2015, and he didn’t say her family was of Berber origin until very recently, so for a long time that was all we had to go on. (And if you’re getting at me from that whitewashing post, I think I made that post before we got the new info so I honestly just didn’t know yet.) Like you say, he could be equating the two, in which case I apologize. But I thought he just meant she was descended from both or something? I did a bit of research at the time and being Arab and Berber is a thing? (But please let me know if I’m wrong!)

(And can you please not call me white? I’m not, and I’m always willing to have a discussion without jumping to conclusions)

Why do people not trust Syrian voices? It’s anti-Arab racism. The western media stereotypes Arabs as terrorists, and the media uses this orientalist stereotype in their favour. No Arab can possibly be even used to the idea of democracy, basic civil liberties and freedom. They are naturally savages, so surely they need secular dictators to keep them in line! This is why all Syrian dissent are stereotyped as bloodthirsty terrorists, who cannot be possibly telling the truth because what do they know of democracy? Democracy is a concept that only belongs to the West, of course! They must be Islamist terrorists, that’s the only way Arabs can even challenge dictatorships in the Middle East. The racist media cannot possibly comprehend that free thinker Arabs exist, outside of the western construct. Does the western media ever mention Yassin al-Haj Saleh, a free thinker atheist secularist Syrian who staunchly opposes Assad? Of course not.

Whilst the western media does expose Assad’s evils, its message is often that the only way in which the problem can be dealt with is by western military intervention. The western media deliberately erases Syrian intellectuals and voices, merely reducing them to body counts. Syrians are barely interviewed, they are merely treated as a subject.
