    Hello everyone, 
    I’m leaving ShiaChat permanently due to unfair biases, bullying, and unislamic/toxic attitudes.
    I’m sure you all know that this site is extremely biased toward women and ruthless to those who are not “perfect” enough in Islam. This forum has encouraged incessant bullying and verbal abuse to take place and I will no longer stand for this. That is why, after 3 years of being an active member on this forum, I have decided to leave permanently.
    This online community has failed to be of an encouraging and positive place. Instead, it’s home to those who ridicule and shame and bully others—those who have no lives and hide behind their computer screens, forgetting that we are real people with real lives, emotions, and struggles that are not to be made fun of by the Ummah.
    If you are a bully and you call yourself a Muslim, then you need to re-evaluate what it means to be Shia. Being a Shia is not just beating your chest for Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) or fasting during the month of Ramadan. You must be willing to treat others well, year-round, 24/7. Not just when it’s convenient. Maybe it’s time to reflect during this month and own up to ill-treatment of others.

    I'm pretty reserved nowadays, but every once in a while the real feisty me shows through. I'm looking forward to being elderly someday, inshallah, so I can speak my mind freely without concern for respectability. 
     
    And yes, I talk to myself. Who doesn't?
