My ooc blog where I come to relax and share my views from time to time. No hate will be tolerated; if you don't like my opinions you don't have to follow me, no hard feelings.
Remember to laugh and not to take life too seriously, people, you'll never make it out alive.
I want those abs. Soon they will be mine!
A scratch! But ask for me tomorrow and you shall find me a grave man.
You have no idea the crush I had on this actor growing up. It hurts to look at him he’s so beautiful.
Well dang I was kinda hoping this was another art request when I saw the inbox notification, but I digress.
By Muslim, I’m assuming you’re referring more specifically to the Arabic AU Clarice I posted recently (not all Muslims are Arabic, and not all Arabs follow Islamic practices, although it’s safe to say that in the AU Clarice would have at least some religious affinity towards islam). As for her having blue eyes, after the crusades (which you’ll remember as an invasion of the Arabic region to reclaim the Holy Lands for the Catholic Church) some European features appeared in the general populace (lighter hair, skin, and eyes), because the crusaders were not exactly chivalrous knights and took to raping. So, since it is possible for her to have blue eyes, and that’s a rather intrinsic part of her character, I figured I was justified (and not being racist- as you’ll note her skin is still dark, and I looked into traditional Arabic dress for the period in order to be accurate to the culture and her design).
As for her being Arabic just in general, during the time period of this particular AU, most other regions and cultures didn’t really allow much in the way of women becoming schooled and having careers outside the home; the Islamic culture differed from that in having much more freedom for women, allowing Clarice to be more like her “original” self (intelligent, capable, well-built), and not be a housewife somewhere in Europe slaving over a stove and caring for ten children.
I hope that cleared things up for you, if I’ve made any other egregious mistakes do let me know.
Whomever sent you this ask is a real moron.
Trust Tumblr to find “racism” in anything.
