The early Muslims, especially Aisha, were extremely blunt in their description of physical attributes and sexual activities. They had none of the shame and discomfort that modern Muslims have about these issues, because they were not subjected to British colonial brainwashing. Many Muslims today, especially those from Indian subcontinental and Arab backgrounds, are the product of several centuries of Victorian cultural conditioning left over by the British.

During the Indian Raj, the British colonizers were horrified by how blunt the Islamic texts were about sexuality — there were popular “sex manuals” disseminated by the ulema (religious scholars) to give practical advice to husbands and wives about how to please each other, all based on hadith (oral traditions) of our Holy Prophet (pbuh). The Victorian British, who were raised to believe that sex even between married people was shameful and unspiritual, forced Indian Muslim scholars to retranslate these Arabic texts into Urdu using euphemisms that were acceptable to the colonialists. The result has been two centuries of Muslims believing that discussions of the human body and genitals as well as open talk about sex is uncultured, when in truth Muslims never had such taboos.

In the hadiths, Aisha was very blunt about how the Prophet (pbuh) liked to have sex. In the hadiths she said that he even enjoyed what we would call “French kissing” — that he used to suck on her tongue. “French kissing” was as such promulgated by early Muslims as a Sunnah (an example of the Prophet to be emulated).

All of this may shock you, but I would urge you to go back and read the hadiths for yourself, and you will see that blunt discussion of sex and physical body parts has always been a part of Islam.

Women do not have to:

clemlin:

vegankatie:

  • be thin
  • give birth
  • cook for you
  • have long hair
  • wear makeup
  • have sex with you
  • be feminine
  • be graceful
  • shave
  • diet
  • be fashionable
  • wear pink
  • love men
  • be the media’s idea of perfection
  • listen to your bullshit
  • have a vagina

This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.

BLESS.
