As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?
I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.
But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?❞
I am going to reblog this quote every year.
Emmet @glass-war helped me take photos for my art project last night, and they turned out pretty cool if i do say so myself. These are just a few
R.I.P. The 2976 American people that lost their lives on 9/11 and R.I.P. the 48,644 Afghan and 1,690,903 Iraqi and 35000 Pakistani people that paid the ultimate price for a crime they did not commit
Revealed to my parents that i bought stretchers for my ears and they acted as if I had told them i was pregnant lol. Even though i already have my medusa, tongue, both nostrils and tragus. Weird people

The regular girl couldn’t make it, so I’m here.
Dear tumblr, please stop making me follow people i have recently unfollowed without my permission.
notquiteafembot reblogged my post about white allies with the comment “What a giant load of bullshit” They need to apologise and recognise how fucked up that was or unfollow me immediately.
White people like me need to recognise that we do not have the right to comment on matters of race,…
"White people like me need to recognise that we do not have the right to comment on matters of race" no. If I want to speak out against racism I can. I believe it’s completely unjust, and just because I have not experienced it myself does not mean I cannot express how I feel towards the matter. Surely that in order to combat racism we must remove the barriers that cause it (the colour of our skin), therefore I cannot see how it is a necessity to write "I am white" in my bio, or to tag "I am white" in race related posts. You cannot tell me that because I am not labelled as a ‘poc’ that my opinion is not valid. With this mentality, you could argue that I don’t have a right to speak about the holocaust because I am not a Jew. This post is ridiculous.
Ps. Don’t worry I will unfollow you, I hope that gives you pleasure. (I honestly didn’t even know I was following you, but that is beside the point)
