There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
I am so fucking sick of this
I am sick to fucking death of it
I’m sick of the fact that western islamophobia has reached such a stage that Muslims have to constantly reassure you bigots that we’re not terrorists and don’t go home planning to bring down western society any time there is any self-styled jihadist group starts committing the most unspeakable atrocities.
Why do we have to do this?
Every single fucking time, we have to actively denounce every single bomb and every single bullet fired in the Muslim world lest it be used as proof of our inherent violence and brutality.
We don’t want to do this; we don’t want to engage in these kinds of campaigns and don’t want to have to constantly reassure you close-minded fucks that we have no plans for violent proselytisation.
This is YOUR damn problem. It’s YOUR fault that you can’t look at us without seeing terrorists.
I’m sick of apologetically pandering to non-Muslims in the west and I’m sick of being expected to be constantly wearing a hangdog expression whenever this happens.
YOU are the bigots that create fear and paranoia around Muslims and around Muslims exclusively.
Where is the call for every single Sri Lankan to denounce the Tamil Tigers?
Are the Irish constantly demanded to apologise for the actions of the IRA in the past?
Is every single Jewish person called upon to actively criticise Israel for one of the longest running genocides of modern times?
Which other group is considered to be little more than a group of pseudo-sleeper agents waiting to pounce upon the ‘hospitality’ of western nations and usher in a world where non-Muslims are treated as Muslims are treated now?
I am sick to the absolute back teeth of you people.
things life is too short for:
- hating yourself
- pretending to laugh at “jokes” that are actually just bigoted statements
- not singing along to your favorite songs
- waiting hours to text someone back just to look cool
- bad coffee
- bad books
- mean people
- body shaming
- letting other people dictate your life

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:
I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.
So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.
You hear all these “you’re not a real fan unless” and it lists a hundred things, but I met a dude today who saw my Deadpool pin and asked what my favorite story arc was, and I explained that while I loved Deadpool, I was new to Marvel (I only really got into it a year and a half ago) and hadn’t been able to find a lot of the comics. Instead of making a face or a derogatory comment, he just offered to send me all the stuff he had. That is a true fan.
