Though our first issue is out on August 15th, Flower Crown is now accepting pieces for our second issue in September. The theme is Celebrity Skin. This issue will focus on media driven images of women (the good and the bad), celebrity culture from an intersectional feminist standpoint, body image, female stock characters (Strong Female™, Sapphire, Ingenue, Jezebel, etc) our favorite TV shows/films/music/actresses/singers/etc, problematic faves, media representation or lack thereof…”
Please send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org!
We do not accept fiction pieces at this time.
Anonymous asked: There's direct quranic verses going against homosexuality. Islam sees homosexuality as something that you are born with. It's not a choice,it's your nature. Everyone has their jihad. Some have it with monogamy,adultery etc. some people's jihad might be gambling,alcoholism. And we have to fight against our struggles. What's the point of a super easy exam? If someone's jihad is against homosexual urges-then they try their very best to not engage in homosexual acts. Do you get me?
I totally get this. Like my personal jihad is to be stronger in my faith and become better at eating out hot muslimahs despite the temptations of straight men that shaytan sends my way. We are all just individual parts in a giant ummah trying to find our place brother .

Debunking more lies and racist misinformation about black men. Stop the ignorance and start to question why these myths exist in the first place, if not to demonize black men and promote the image of us as inherently criminal and violent and incapable of being educated.
we’re reading passage to india in english and there’s these kids in my class who literally think the tension between the indians and the british is happening bc they’re not nice enough to each other I have to raise my hand once daily to remind everyone that colonization was indeed a bad thing jesus did not die for this
"i’m not a feminist i just support equality" is 99% of the time code for "i support everyone shutting the fuck up about oppressive systems for the illusion of peace so i don’t have to feel guilty about my benefit from them and my reluctance to effect changes that begin with me"
