Muslim sisters thirsting for Aladdin, love yourselves. The true (Disney) man you should be thirsting for is Shang from Mulan who actually goes to visit Mulan’s family before making any moves on her. MashaAllah, Li Shang, keep up the halaal.
LOL now this is real

I wish I could still share with you. Buy you have moved and I am still here.
will always look
Isn’t it just wonderful and exhilarating to find someone who can relate to and understand even the darkest corners of your heart and mind, someone who literally takes the words right out of your mouth like a bee takes nectar from a flower? As though you’ve been a lonely traveller all your life, then you find a familiar friend who’s heading the same way that you are.
But if you really wanna know what’s “extreme” (you don’t), I’ll have you know that it is pretty “extreme” to take a religious tradition with over 14 centuries of legal, philosophical, jurisprudential, exegetical, political, and societal thought, that has spread to just about every continent, that has come in contact with probably the majority of the world’s contemporary cultures, that has over a billion adherents in the world, that has at least five major schools of law, and that has an extraordinary capacity to be adaptable to space and time, and to reduce that tradition in its vast richness to one monolithic understanding of one arbitrary, useless issue. And while you’re at it, you can take your eurocentric understanding of what is “normal” behavior and shove it because if your primary concern with Islam is supposedly not being able to shake someone’s hand, your concern isn’t at all with the faith but with Otherizing and vilifying its adherents as ignorant followers of a religion that you, in your ignorance, have labeled as too extreme because it seemingly doesn’t conform to what you deem acceptable.
