These handmade fabric moths by Yumi Okita are “inspired from realism of nature then manipulated into the world of imagination”. They can be found (when they’re not sold out) at her Esty store

Islam is commonly portrayed to be encouraging of terrorism. Let me put a twist on this perspective. During the first Gulf War, the United States intentionally destroyed the Iraqi water supply and then denied the Iraqis the importation of materials needed to rebuild the supply and purify the water. Thousands of Iraqi civilians were subsequently deprived of clean water, and waterborne illnesses became epidemic. According to the World Health Organization and UNICEF reports, over 1 million Iraqi people have died as a result of contaminated water, and over half were children younger than five years old.

According to Islamic law, poisoning the water supply is considered terrorism and killing civilians and children in warfare is strictly prohibited.

Feminism INCLUDES intersectionality. If you purposefully exclude colored women, disabled women, trans women, muslim women, poor women, and queer women, you are NOT a feminist. If you choose to ignore the intersectionalities that shape a womans life such as her race, gender identity, sexuality, and class, you are NOT a feminist. If your feminist agenda ONLY touches upon western rape culture and sex positivity, you are NOT a feminist.
