Assalamu alaikum, I'm Helena, 21, and Muslim. I'm English & Egyptian. But mostly English.

This blog does not aim to promote the hijab as a fashion statement, but it is a means for me to remind myself and others that hijab is empowering, elegant, and beautiful :)

i’m just going to leave this here.
because it’s pretty much the most gangster shit i’ve ever seen in my entire life.

This is a Kayapó mother and child from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest and while she might not get shit for breast-feeding in public, her entire people is being forcibly evicted from their ancestral homelands in order to make way for the massive Belo Monte Dam, which will make thousands of indigenous Brazilians homeless while simultaneously destroying a large part of what is commonly referred to as the lungs of the world. 
In other words, western moral codes aren’t currently this mother’s biggest concern.

Why can’t they just leave nature alone and let indigenous people be? It’s just disgusting and makes me so angry.
