I had bacon for the first time ever, more than three years ago. It was a crisp Summer day. It was with my then-boyfriend. At Milestones. In a burger. And was that burger fucking delicious or what. It wasn’t planned, just so you know. It wasn’t like I told my ex to take me to Milestones so I could have bacon for the first time. But when we got there and the waitress asked whether or not I wanted bacon… Read more

Hello there, people! I hope you all are doing well. I recently had the wonderful opportunity to be interviewed by Trav Mamone on their Bi Any Means podcast. It was actually my first interview so I was kind of shy and nervous. I apologize for the weird audio quality on my end, but you can still make out most of what I am saying. I actually had fun doing this interview. I talked about my de-conversion, growing up in Pakistan,… Read more

As long as American liberals/progressives stick to the destructive myth that social media is not ‘real’ and activism on it is useless, they will be played by their opponents. Whether you like it or not, Donald Trump would have never won without social media. Read more

In South Asian Muslim communities, marriage is what ultimately makes a couple’s love legitimate in the eyes of society. And I mean this in the most literal sense possible.

You’re the worthy and good woman if you’re fucking within marriage! You will be so highly praised for following religious guidelines. Your love for your partner would… Read more

To call God of these mythologies a “Mother” and refer to Him with feminine pronouns is not that much different from trying to solve racism by pretending the KKK founder was black or to change the Swastika to the Star of David. Read more

It was a rainy March night, or April? I forget. Pretty sure it was 2012. Me, and a bunch of other people, were standing at the bus stop outside my college. The bus had been delayed 20 minutes or so. I had no umbrella to keep me from being soaked in the rain, the rain wasn’t all that heavy, but not all that light either. This is when a guy with an umbrella approaches me and offers to share his… Read more

But even when people are not defending Castro, they still portray him under a very false light, claiming he had a “light” side and a “dark” side. The good thing about Castro is how he stood up against USA and Western hegemony. The “bad” thing is that he was a bloodthirsty tyrant. But that’s wrong.
