muslim men

Ok but can we talk about another aspect of the Bold Type that makes it so awesome, which is it’s ability to defy commonly held sterotypes. For example Alex. Like he’s smart and supportive and sweet and I just love how he’s not like the stereotypical overly hype black male friend who throws out one liners and rap lyrics and dresses only in sports apparel. I’m also totally here for straight black men working for fashion magazines. Also, I like how Oliver is both black and LGBT+ but he’s not the stereotypical black gay guy™. He has an actual personality that’s not just composed of sassy catchphrases and gay slang. Just congrats for the show for having black characters that aren’t just one dimensional stereotypes and that are actually involved in the central plot. Alsoooo props to Adena for not being a stereotypical butch lesbian, cuz not all lesbians fit into the butch/femme category. Also Kat, a black girl, is one the main characters, which is just awesome to begin with. The Bold Type just departs from stereotypes so much and in the best way possible. If y'all aren’t watching it, you better, cuz it’s great.


Report: An airline made 2 Muslim men deboard a plane and go through airport security all over again

  • According to a report in the Manchester Evening News, a Thomas Cook Airlines flight headed from Izmir, Turkey, to Manchester, England, was delayed for nearly 90 minutes after the crew made two Muslim men disembark and go through airport security for a second time.
  •  The incident occurred after fellow passengers complained the men appeared to be “making gestures” onboard.
  • The Evening News said two women on the Thomas Cook flight sought the aid of flight attendants after claiming to witness two men making phone calls in the bathroom and “signaling to each other” as the plane prepared for takeoff. 
  • They also accused the men of having somehow bypassed airport security. Read more (5/12/17)

I support Men’s Rights

I support the right for black men to interact with the police safely and without fear for their own life.

I support the right for trans men to use the correct bathroom without fear for their safety.

I support the right for bi and gay men to marry and adopt kids and donate blood.

I support the right for disabled men to have access to facilities and services with their disabilities accommodated respectfully. 

I support the right for immigrant men to be treated with respect and be given full protection under the law. 

I support the right for Jewish men and Muslim men to be able to practice their religion in peace without bomb threats and hateful vandalism against their places of worship. 

Of course I support men’s rights. I’m just confused as to why so few “Antifeminists” do as well. 


“There are lots of things in Islam that don’t fit me either! Like its view of homosexuality or why does Islam say that muslim men can marry non-religious women, but muslim women can’t. Isn’t that a bit sexist? At least in the society we live in and when Islam says the Quran can adapt to every society you live in?”


And if 2 Muslim men attacked a group of White girls with baseball bats and then kidnapped and beat one to death?

Could you imagine the outrage? the devastation?

But this? I have only seen a few regular people tweeting and posting about it. No articles. No headlines. #WhiteTerrorism #Islamaphobia

yall know how important it is having a gay sex scene with middle eastern muslim men be graphic in a soft and tender and poetic manner?? like american gods DID THAT! erased islamophobia/racist stereotypes of MENA men while romanticizing gay sex! 

the first conversation between a man & a woman

Ibn Abbas (رضي الله عنه) and a group of companions of the Prophet ﷺ narrated that when Iblis was sent out of Paradise and Adam was accommodated therein, Adam (alayhi salam) was alone in Paradise. He slept for some time and when he woke up, he saw a woman whom Allah had created from his ribs.

So he asked her, “Who are you?”

She replied, ”A woman

He asked: ”Why have you been created?“

She said: ”So that you could find comfort in me.“
