AMBREEN SADIQ - ONE OF BRITAIN’S FIRST FEMALE MUSLIM BOXERS
I loved this recent article on boxer, Ambreen Sadiq. Not only has she fought and won numerous fights in the ring but she’s fought through the prejudice that some of her family members have about her profession.
After appearing in the local newspapers and a Channel 4 documentary about her journey, Ambreen faced criticism and even death threats from men and women in the Muslim community. But she says that it isn’t the religion that causes the problem…
““A lot of Muslim people say it’s about religion,” she says. “But I think it’s more about the culture and how people have been brought up. Men and women are treated equally [in the religion]. In the culture, it’s like the women should be at home cooking tea. The men put the food on the table.”
Now Ambreen’s story has been transformed into a play that is featuring at Edinburgh Festival - ‘No Guts, No Heart, No Glory’ check out the trailer here:
“It’s great that I can get my story out there,” says Sadiq. She wants to spread the message that Muslim girls can do whatever they want – whether dance, ballet, boxing, or football. “I think girls should be doing anything they want to be doing,” she insists.
masculinity is so funny to me bc men deprive themselves of the best things in life in order to achieve it like ….fuzzy socks, fun fruity pink drinks, spa days, lifetime movies, expressing positive feelings in a healthy way, being a warm genuine person
It’s a well learned lesson, usually beat into us early on.
Anonymous said: Its a horrible thing to say a group of people should be destroyed Hate+hate=more hate
i dont know what this is about but i took a few maths so i know that hate + hate = 2(hate). matter is neither created nor destroyed. the hate does not increase. thanks
An insect wrapped in spider silk
Spiders use their silk for many reasons, but its extensive role in ensnaring prey is perhaps the best understood. Some spiders, such as Scytodes thoracica, lace their silk with venom before launching it at prey within a millisecond. Aside from its role in prey capture, silk is also incredibly strong. It has the tensile strength comparable to steel but is much less dense: A given weight of spider silk is five times as strong as the same weight of steel.

A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from.
The water is hidden inside a blue rock that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth’s surface and its core.
Some geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck planets, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the ocean oozed out of Earth’s interior layer.
I wrote up a game proposal complete with illustrations that used this idea, before the news came out!
I love my city. #la #nofilter #losangeles #mydayinLA
