If you followed me on tumblr (back when I had a tumblr), you might remember that several months ago, I said I was writing an article in response to something I'd come across, and also promised to share it when it went live. I very much meant to do so much sooner, only the first version of this article was not very good and I needed time away from it to be able to rework it. The finished product, I am proud to say, is loads better and I am really pleased with it!
I have currently hosted it on Medium, because I'm still without a job (thanks, pandemic) and Medium allows me to get paid per reader. Which means I would really appreciate it if you could check it out and give my article a read, and also share it around!
Happy reading and writing!
❝ If someone were to ask me what I identify as, I would answer Muslim, Canadian, and giant nerd, in that order. I might tack bookworm onto it too. Ask anyone who knows me, they’ll tell you I can be found doing one of three things: reading, writing, or interacting with online creative spaces. While I have rarely been unwelcome in those spaces, those spaces have very rarely been inclusive for me or my beliefs as a Western Muslim, largely because Western Muslims simply aren’t represented very well (or at all) in Western media. ❞
