I’m a Muslim Woman, and I’d Like to Report a Terrorist

  • Lee R

    Bravo! As a resident of Colorado, where we have mass shootings every 22 months or so (I believe all by white men, so far), where Timothy McVeigh was tried and convicted of murdering 168 and wounding over 600, and where his co-conspiritor, Terry Nichols, resides in the SuperMax prison, I’m not worried about my neighbors who might worship in one of our local Mosques. I just hope my other neighbors heed your call because that 22 month clock continues to tick in our open carry state….

    Seriously, there are too many logical fallacies and conflations of ideas to react effectively to this article, apart from to ask are you serious or is this sarcasm.

    Good to see your still relying on that 99% figure, how about discussing or dealing with the real problem the primary cancer within Islam – Islamism Jihadist/Fundamentalist like ISIS are the secondary cancer only.

    Why not honestly and frankly confront the issue head on if boldness is truly your style.

    I’m queer. I’m in far more danger every day from white US lawmakers than any Muslim I have ever met. I’m sorry for the hate you’re getting and I try to be a pleasant presence in the lives of the Muslim families I help at the library I work at.

      As a queer Muslim, I definitely feel much more afraid of people because of my Muslim identity than from being queer. It may be relative to where we both live and possibly different cultures in those places, so I’m not negating that being queer may be much more difficult for you where you live. But at least where I am, it’s much easier to be out in the LGBTQ community than it is to wear hijab or admit to your coworkers that you are Muslim.

        I’m sorry, I think I expressed myself poorly! I meant that I’m in more danger from white lawmakers than I am *from* Muslims. The Islamophobia rampant in the US absolutely would have me believe that Muslims are the major danger I face and they – the Islamophobic lawmakers and populace – are “trying to protect me”.
