I don’t understand the “real Muslims can’t be LGBT”. I am a gay Muslim woman, and this is the first time I see myself represented in Adena. When I saw her, I cried because my younger self would have felt less lonely seeing someone like Adena on tv.

Seeing someone like Adena who is so proud to be a Muslim lesbian feminist gave me so much hope. So to that person who said that real muslims can’t be lgbt, stop shitting on our happiness, life’s too short to hate.

When I saw the Adena storyline, I immediately thought of you and how happy you would be to see that. I was giddy watching the storyline during my second day of Eid cause I’ve been waiting for that for so looong. Eid Mubarak!

Thank you! Eid Mubarak to you too. And yes, I don’t know why somebody would waste their time being hateful when it’s so easy to…not…be hateful. It’s not helping anybody, Muslims or non-Muslims, nobody will go away from her post feeling better or illuminated. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
