allies are so weird because like they say they’re in full support of defending lgbtqa rights but as soon as one word is spoken against them they adopt a frankly terrifying standpoint of “without us you are nothing”
my follower count went up but I have no new followers…. spooky
I want to kiss someone

Anonymous asked: I really hope this isn't a triggering question- and if it is just walk away please- but how did make the turn into recovery? I've been trying but it just manifests into a new torture every time.
It’s okay. I’m actually really happy and proud of how running turned from a way to punish myself to a positive aspect in my life.
When I first began running in February of 2012, my routine kind of looked like this: eat, throw up, drink coffee, run, repeat. Every single day, for about half a year. I didn’t enjoy running; every time I ran, I felt dizzy, out of breath, and extremely dehydrated since I drank so much coffee beforehand. However, after suffering for over a year from my eating disorder, I decided that I wanted to start living again. I desperately wanted to stop dreading eating so much and to not be afraid of the exact things that I needed to nourish myself with. In August/September 2012, I created this blog so I could start looking towards motivation to becoming healthy and fit, and not just to lose weight. As I started eating healthier again and started properly nurturing my body, I learned to love running. I loved the way I felt towards myself and my life after every time I ran. It started becoming a positive aspect of my life, and eventually became a major part of my lifestyle.
About a year after I started harming myself through running, I turned it into a positive aspect of my life when I joined track in February 2013. It was probably one of the best decisions of my life. Through track, I learned not to be afraid of commitment, and to find my passion for running. During track, I got the gift of encouragement from my coaches and my teammates. This was the first time I felt like someone believed in me, and like I was good enough to do anything.
At first, the sole thing that was killing me from within gave me excuses to run more. Now, running gives me a reason to live.

Anonymous asked: Do you find you get double the negativity from people for being a Black Muslim male? Both of these groups are the most negatively stereotyped in our society. I'm Muslim too, and when I even mention my religion like say something as mundane as: "I celebrated Eid yesterday", it makes white people shift in their seat and change the subject.
Yes I do
In middle school I was apparently the only Black muslim anyone had ever seen before because I even had people telling me “You’re black? I thought you were Muslim.” They didn’t know the difference between a race and a religion I guess. People would give me weird looks when told them I was Muslim. One guy looked at me for a bit and then said “Oh you’re Egyptian then.” I was like, “No I am not Egyptian,” and he said, “Well how can you be Black, Muslim and not Egyptian?” and then I didn’t talk to him for rest of the year and he didn’t come back in 7th grade so, yeah.
But that was the students. When the teachers found out… ooh they would give me the weirdest looks. The kind where you know they’re uncomfortable but they try to hide it and keep a straight face but they’re not doing it well.
I guess since we’re all thugs and terrorists it makes them extra uneasy.
Sometimes I’m confused by Canadian stereotypes but then I realize that we literally dump maple syrup onto the snow, wait for it to get gooey and then scoop it up with a stick and eat it

As a canadian I can confirm 100%
As someone who went to Canada and witnessed this firsthand I too can confirm this 100%
And as a Canadian who’s tried this I can confirm it is 100% delicious.
