IRP — ISLAMOPHOBIA IN AUSTRALIA

For my Yr 12 Independent Research Project I’m researching Islamophobia in Australia. I’ll be doing an online survey. If you are Muslim / Arab and living in Australia can you please give me your email as well as telling me your age and gender (you can put it here or inbox me). I have a feeling you will all be teenage girls but I’m going to need variety so I may ask if you can give the link to the survey to perhaps people in your family or friends (it’s okay if not!!!). FYI — I probably won’t have the survey up and ready for a few weeks. Please and thank you!

Not watching tonight’s Q&A because of my unjustifiable prejudice against Brian Cox.

Anonymous asks: Where do you / your friendship group sit on your school's 'social rank'?

LMAO it’s 2014 — there’s no ‘social rank’ in high school. All 150+ girls in my year are full of only love for each other.

I love this photo… it’s just like “I am cold and distant and white boys cannot fathom me”.
