Damn, I haven’t written more than a few sentences of my last round of posts. I may need to disappear from Tumblr for a few more days again.
I’m looking for young muslim women between the ages of 18 and 26 in London to participate in either a focus group (each consisting of 5 participants in total) or an individual interview with me, sometime between the end of March and April. This is for my dissertation, researching the attitudes of british-muslim women towards contested models of femininity.
I’m evaluating the contemporary discourses surrounding western feminism in relation to the often “contentious” issue with the agency of Muslim women and Islam.
If anyone who fits the criteria is interested in participating and wants further information or you know of anyone who is, then please contact me either via private message or by email (BushraFerjani@hotmail.com) to discuss it further.
I would appreciate this immensely!!!! and all participants will be offered refreshments during the study for their time :). Please note that participating is completely voluntary, all data collected will be anonymised, and you can change your mind at any time. A detailed information sheet on the background of my research along with a consent form will obviously be provided for those who get in touch and would like to participate.

I hate that phrase “throwing under the bus.” It’s used for a situation where you benefit from co-opting then abandoning another person, but why would you throw people under a bus anyway?
Anyway, nitpicking aside, whatever people mean by throwing under the bus, I think it’s happening to Southeast Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders when it comes to the anti-SCA5 campaign… and I really, really, don’t like it.
If you’re AAPI in California, please read through this link very carefully. Reblog it from there if you agree, or post it on your own. Honestly, I’ve been reading Jenn Fang for a very long time, I think she’s smart as hell and I trust her on this issue. And some of the anti-SCA5 language is really disturbing me.

I need to do finish four blog posts for The Submission Gift promo tour this weekend. I’ve got the topics already.
Let me know if you have any specific questions on any of those topics!
After Lestrade leaves the room, Joan confronts Sherlock about it & he says he's never heard of the mugger before. The feather came from Lestrade's clothing, but he thought it was Sherlock's. Sherlock lied when he realized the confidence it gave him.
OK, I usually get very sleepy by the end of these, so I missed that. Thanks for filling me in. The whole thing is still really creepy, though!
It’s not my responsibility to tell people who think they’re Sephiroth that they’re not actually Sephiroth. I can’t believe I even have to say that.
