honestly I haven’t talked about the bullying and the islamophobia and the pain because that’s just… really triggering for me man.
I don’t like what julie is doing. I’m tired and disappointed that the only thing she wanted to do with sana was just to press on yalls white guilt without even thinking about us muslim fans watching and how we might feel about that.
we don’t need that constant reminder. I would have liked being reminded of the beauty and sense of community my religion brings me, not just the hatred thrown in our faces from all sides. and the worst thing is, even a sensationalist and white gazey storyline like that is not enough to get y'all interested. she’s selling our pain, our exhaustion, our loneliness and yall turn the other way.
it’s that indifference. it’s that indifference that’s making us so angry and sad and dejected. and I see y'all coming with the whole “it’s for norwegian teenagers so of course it’s going to be aimed at a white audience”, well, tell that to the norwegian muslims watching, I’m not sure they’re very happy either.
so far, this season has been pretty much nothing but exhausting for muslim fans and that’s just… not how it should be.
