Muslim women - I’m developing a show about us. What would you like to see?????

Replying to @thefawz

intersectional muslims; joyful, largely unconfused muslims; muslims who aren't afraid to acknowledge and/or critique the problematic natures of many prominently accepted beliefs and practices within the community #mswl

For @Hazlitt, a piece two years in the making, I wrote about gender and the word “tomboy”: hazlitt.net/feature/betwee… pic.twitter.com/Gm7HCMiopc

i grew up embracing the term "tomboy" and its related aesthetics because it was the only way i had to express my rejection of traditional gender roles. this fantastic essay is probing, necessary, and calls into question why labels, while divisive, can be empowering as well. #MSWL
