i remember one time the simpsons made a joke about fox news and they got so insulted they tried to sue them but the court was like “this aired on ur network u can’t sue urself”
Someone tell me how this thing that can barely speak English is going to try and explain a book of classical Arabic to me.
Like people who haven’t studied Shakespeare to a substantial level are totally ignored by academia but opinions like the one espoused by this thing are accepted and discussed in mainstream western discourse about Islam.
Like you are aware Islam also imposes a tax on Muslims too? It’s called zakat and is compulsory on every Muslim who can afford it? And it is taxed at 2.5% wheras the jizya (non-Muslim tax) is taxed at 1%. Furthermore, the money from jizya is used to fund the non-Muslim community of a Muslim country through things like supporting the building of non-Muslim places of worship, guaranteeing non-Muslims will have safety to practice their beliefs, whereas the money from zakat is used only for welfare services that are available to ALL citizens of the country; Muslim or otherwise.
Like all of your arguments are, in addition to being disgusting and repulsive, totally baseless. These are the same tired arguments that can be debunked with the most casual of google searches. Try harder next time, Samantha.

There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
I am so fucking sick of this
I am sick to fucking death of it
I’m sick of the fact that western islamophobia has reached such a stage that Muslims have to constantly reassure you bigots that we’re not terrorists and don’t go home planning to bring down western society any time there is any self-styled jihadist group starts committing the most unspeakable atrocities.
Why do we have to do this?
Every single fucking time, we have to actively denounce every single bomb and every single bullet fired in the Muslim world lest it be used as proof of our inherent violence and brutality.
We don’t want to do this; we don’t want to engage in these kinds of campaigns and don’t want to have to constantly reassure you close-minded fucks that we have no plans for violent proselytisation.
This is YOUR damn problem. It’s YOUR fault that you can’t look at us without seeing terrorists.
I’m sick of apologetically pandering to non-Muslims in the west and I’m sick of being expected to be constantly wearing a hangdog expression whenever this happens.
YOU are the bigots that create fear and paranoia around Muslims and around Muslims exclusively.
Where is the call for every single Sri Lankan to denounce the Tamil Tigers?
Are the Irish constantly demanded to apologise for the actions of the IRA in the past?
Is every single Jewish person called upon to actively criticise Israel for one of the longest running genocides of modern times?
Which other group is considered to be little more than a group of pseudo-sleeper agents waiting to pounce upon the ‘hospitality’ of western nations and usher in a world where non-Muslims are treated as Muslims are treated now?
I am sick to the absolute back teeth of you people.
MY UNCLE ALWAYS TELLS ME NEVER LET SOMEONE TELL U UR FAVORITE BAND IS A “PHASE” BECAUSE HES LOVED THE SPICE GIRLS FOR 17 YEARS AND HE STILL DOES
Parineeti Chopra responds to a male reporter who claims to know nothing about periods (menstrual cycle). [X]
I started my period when I was 10 years old. But we didn’t tell my grandma for three years because she subscribed to the “old traditions”, where a woman on her period could not enter the house, not even to bathe. Where she had to sit outside in front of the house (where the whole village could be witness to her shame and isolation) for the entire duration.
My friend started her period unexpectedly while we were at our local temple (in America) for dance class. Asking around if any of the parents had pads (all of them apologized and acted like adults about it), I thought surely the front office has a first aid kit. Don’t they have pads? When we asked, not only did they not have any, when one of the women gave one from her purse, the head secretary told us “There are men who need to use the first-aid kit, ya? So we don’t keep period things there.” Not even ibuprofen (which has so many more uses than period pain).
There are girls in India and Nepal (and other places, but I just read an in-depth piece about the situations in Nepal) who have to go to the “period hut” when their period comes and not leave until its over. They can’t wash and dry their cloth pads in the daylight, so they do it at night when the pads won’t dry properly before their next use, making them vulnerable to infection.
It is incredibly important, especially in India, to break the taboo surrounding periods. Break the secrecy around an event that happens to almost every woman, every month for literally half of her lifetime. Break the hiding, break the cover-up, break the SHAME.
Just break EVERYTHING. So little girls can go to school every day of every month without feeling ashamed. So women can work every day of every month to provide for their families without being glared at. So single fathers can confidently take care of their daughters’ health. So that women can talk about how terrible their period is or isn’t and give each other advice on how to deal with it without looking around to make sure men aren’t listening.
So that Whisper doesn’t have to be called Whisper, it can be called SHOUT. It can be called PROUD. So that we don’t NEED to fucking WHISPER about our bodies and our health.
It’s ridiculous how men think periods are disgusting. Like I’m sorry that my body is normally working and able to welcome your beautiful and wonderful baby. I am very not sorry to be a woman and to disgust you.
