just yasmeen

Hey guys, my brother is making his first feature length movie, and he’s come so far! After years of film school to chase his dream, he’s now seriously in debt. He could use a little help because movies cost a lot of money to make! From renting film locations to paying extras, films cost an arm and a leg! If you can spare anything, even a small amount it would help him reach his lifelong goal of directing his own movie. Please, even if you can’t donate, look into the movie Burying Yasmeen on Facebook and Instagram. Any support he can get would be great! Even the smallest donations and support could change his life! He’s worked so hard. Thank you

Hi. I have been struggling with a binge eating disorder almost my entire life and as I've gotten older I feel like I've reached the point where I truly want to be a new person and be healthy and fit. But whoever I search through the tags I'm triggered almost everytime because there are a lot of girls who think eating 900 calories a day is healthy and it pisses me off. Do you have any blog recommendations that are all about living healthy and positive energy?

Why she refuses to wear the hijab

It’s quite long but worth the read(especially for non-hijabis).

“I’m so tired.”

“Tired of what?”

“Of all these people judging me.”

“Who judged you?”

“Like that woman, every time I sit with her, she tells me to wear hijab.”

“Oh, hijab and music! The mother of all topics!”

“Yeah! I listen to music without hijab…haha!”

“Maybe she was just giving you advice.”

“I don’t need her advice. I know my religion. Can`t she mind her own business?”

Good morning lovies!

Yesterday’s meeting was really long but it went really well. My principal couldn’t make it, so the dean of students came instead. She is one of my best friends, so I had nothing to worry about. The superintendent also said she wasn’t there to judge the meeting or for any reason other than to explain different options offered through our school district. It was great.

Then last night I worked out and I’m totally feeling it today. I feel great.

I also meal prepped for today. I feel so adult.

Anyway…I hope you all have a wonderful day!

operation-hourglass  asked:

Hi Yasmeen! I just wanted to ask about you & your hubby, off anon, in case you want to reply privately. I saw an ask that you're staying in Jordan until January, and might move back there eventually...Have you all experienced any racism here personally? Has he ever been targeted by the police? It's crazy to think that it's almost 2015, 50 years since the Civil Rights Movement, yet people are still racist. Would life be safer for you all in Jordan? As a country, is it more open-minded? ❤ Alyssa

Alyssa my dear I have to apologize first for taking so long to respond. I was contemplating how to answer this because there’s just so much to say about this matter. But I eventually came to the conclusion that the best way to respond is to let my husband take this one. So this is him answering: 

I can say this, the police in Jordan, at least from my own personal perspective and experience, do not profile me because of my ethnicity, nationality, or even creed.  Although, during this trip there has been a much larger police presence in the area than it was years prior during my visits. But with the recent influx of ISIS activity in the Middle East, it is very well known within the Jordanian community that these police are simply doing their jobs correctly and cautiously to the fullest extent of the law.  Their priorities are not clouded by any racial bias or class that I know of.  If they are profiling anyone, it is to locate potential terrorist cell groups planted here, not to murder innocent civilians.  Aside from this, I have also experienced very selfless acts of kindness from many of the police here.  For instance, I was riding with my mother-in-law one summer here and the car had overheated and broke down.  An officer spotted us and pulled over.  My conditioning of constant police brutality in the states already had my defenses up when I saw his lights, so I immediately pulled out my I.D. (as is standard protocol in my experience for cops, whether I am waiting on triple A or a traffic stop).  Not only did the cop not bother to ask for identification, he merely assessed that we were stranded and offered to help.  What happened next was unbelievable to me.  Instead of calling for side road assistance or a tow truck, he instead took off his badge, put his gun back in his car, rolled up his sleeves and for over half an hour he helped fixed the car himself!  Every encounter I have had with cops in the states during a road side emergency, always involved unnecessary interrogation of who I was/where I was headed, checking license and tags to find some violation (my car was even unlawfully searched once when I had a flat on the road), and then abandonment after a tow truck is called.  So this act of kindness from law enforcement was very foreign to me.  My mother-in-law told me that this type of character is instilled in all of their police, because they value life and the overall well being of their community.  Something that I cannot even remotely say about cops in my own neighborhoods within the U.S.
