One of my favorite things about Islam is that it asks women to keep their last names after marriage. It’s beautiful to think that whether or not your husband changes, your identity remains the same from birth to death. You’re not someone’s property, you are who you were before you had given your husband the honor of marrying him and completing half his deen. Female rights in Islam are immense, you just need to go out & explore them.

What they say: “post-race”
What they mean: “leaving minorities behind”

What they say: “post-feminism”
What they mean: “leaving women behind”

“When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.”

– A girl in my creative writing class said this in response to a story we read about witnessing intimate partner violence and it really fucked with my head because I’ve never, ever, ever, thought of it that way.  (via astronomized)
