There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you.”
'Put your seat belt on.'
‘Watch your step.’
‘Get some rest.’
…you just gotta listen.
Stand up to injustice and hatred.
Look at that jackass go “I - I don’t like it”, as if it even matters. Sit yo stupid ass down, boy.
tumblr likes to post these kind of things without context, but i figured before everyone starts hating this guy they should know that his name is yousef erakat, a muslim youtuber from palestine, and he is performing a social experiment to see how people would react to someone attacking a woman in a hijab.
”it’s her choice ” my ass . I’m pretty sure she was forced to wear that thing by her family , religion and stuff
Look at this asshole.
Laugh at this asshole.
I’m a muslim, and at the age of thirteen, my mum and dad asked me if I wanted to wear a hijab. I said I’d think on it, and then later replied with no.
My sister said yes.
Almost every muslim woman (except for the bullshit propaganda your uneducated ignorant ass sees on CNN) is given the choice to wear a hijab.
Why don’t you take your ignorant comments and shove them up your ass, before I bitch slap you so hard you smash into the surface of the fucking sun.
You wanted smooth sailing and I’ve always been a tsunami.
I tend to cry like some people shower. It cleans me—and if I do it long enough my soul feels different.
I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?
Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.
So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”
All hands went up.
"How many of you want to make comics some day?"
Most of the hands went up.
Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”
Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”
"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.
She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”
That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.
It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.
The future of comics is bright indeed.
This is absolutely wonderful.
When I was six years old, my mum took me to see The Hunchback of Notre Dame opera that came to Glasgow because I was so obsessed with the movie. I took my Quasimodo and Esmeralda dolls with me and sat them on my knees and everything. However, the opera is based on the novel by Victor Hugo and not…
