do you think islamophobia is real?

Yes. It’s very real. 

I don’t know where you are from, but here in Britain the anti-Muslim attitudes are pretty bad. 

There are a lot of people in this country that equate the word Muslim with terrorist. Also, the media is constantly focussed on Islamic Extremism in British schools, but for some magical reason (I know not what, actually yes I do, it’s Islamophobia) radical views being taught in other religious schools aren’t put under that kind of intense scrutiny. (For example what about certain radical Catholic schools that teach LGBTQIA+ kids to hate themselves?) 

You can bet in Britain, that if a Muslim commits a crime, the tabloids will jump to pick up the story, and will also throw in a hell of a lot of offensive stereotypes while they’re at it. Problem is, you get a white Christian or non religious person that commits a crime, and they’re silent or trying their best to excuse the crime or blame it on ‘mental health’. (Give me a break, the mentally ill are more likely to be victims of abuse than the perpetrators). 

There are also lots of people here that think Muslim women shouldn’t be able to wear their religious clothing because it’s oppressive, and yet refuse to actually listen to Muslim women on the matter. Funny, too, how the media here are really quick to brand Islam sexist, but these same papers also make a profit out of women in their underwear and objectifying and harassing women. 

In a lot of ways I am proud of my country. I truly am.

But there are problems with racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia in Britain, and I am very concerned that these attitudes seem to be growing more dangerous and commonplace as people search for a group to blame for the state of the country.

The amount of cognitive dissonance that must go on in your mind i imagine would be quiet astounding.

> Christians saying homosexuality is a sin

> Muslims lynch, in-prison and lash gay people in many Muslim countries.

UK: Muslim school books promote stoning; 6-year-olds taught Western women are ‘white prostitutes’

Reminder to self: apologize for white privilege and praise endless benefits of diversity

I would love to see all of these English killers or rapists that the media say are “mentally ill” can you provide some examples?

Your trying to compare two different things. A women who is a model who poses in her underwear is being paid and does it freely. Muslim women in many parts of the world don’t have any rights. They are forced into marriages, they are stoned to death, lashed, killed for changing religions, acid attacks etc

Islamophobia yeah why would anyone be worried?

"Islamophobia" is a word used to smear anyone who points out legitimate concerns when it comes to Islam.

kenopsia

dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet—a school hallway in the evening, an unlit office on a weekend, vacant fairgrounds—an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs.

I have contemplated this so many times and never realized it had a name.
