Here is my latest for MMW on Beyonce, sexuality, and non-Black Muslim women. As I’ve seen more and more Muslim feminists praise Beyonce’s work I’ve had so many questions in my mind. In this post I propose many questions, thinking out loud about what’s been in my mind.
Here’s my latest on Muslimah Media Watch. Recently, The Daily Beast published an article on Pakistani – American porn star, Nadia Ali, along with an interview with her. It was overloaded with tired, old, racist, orientalist, and colonial discourses. I had to critique both the author’s work and Ali’s responses to the interview questions. Pornientalism, folks! It’s pornientalism.
My newest piece for MMW is up. This time around I looked at the social media response to recent stories out of Pakistan having to do with violence against women. Although I didn’t plan to, I ended up writing about Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s work again.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve rejoined the writing team at Muslimah Media Watch. I wrote for the blog from the time it started in 2007 until the summer of 2009. It was such a wonderful experience that I asked to rejoin.
And here’s my first piece back.
