Smells like... by tuffix
Smells like...

The German top court has made this friday a very happy one. Especially for all my Muslim sisters who were dreaming of becoming teachers.

Background by tuffix

Inspired by a conversation with a friend about her everyday struggles as a “teacher with immigration background”. Loved this reaction of hers.

"Immigration background" in it's semantic meaning has a nice flavour of "pluralism", however, in it's common connotation it's a term (in Germany basically reserved for descendents of "guest workers", you don't use it for descendents of British migrants for example) that clearly labels you as "foreign". The problem is that you can never get rid of being "different", through the "background" you will always be constructed as the "other", therefore never be able to finally "arrive" in the society you lived your whole life.
And in my case (been born in Tunisia by a German mother) it's even trickier.

Dear Deviants,

I just checked: My last journal entry was six mounths ago!

Very much happened since then, the most important news being: My very own website is online! Finally!

It took me ages.. no, it took me literally a whole year after my announcement to finally get it online. And there are STILL things not working. But anyhow, I am so happy and glad to finally have taken this step. I felt like it's all much more organised this way. Many many thanks to Serkan Zarasiz who helped me build it all up, may God bless him and his lovely family!

So please visit and enjoy: >>> <<<

feedback, suggestions, questions are very much welcome.

Best wassalam

Finding your gallery was an unexpected pleasure. Your overall work begs respect through its common sense and the light touch of humor.

I'm sure you're busy as always :) ,  but I thought I would remind you that Muslim-Manga has a new manga contest and it would be awesome if you participated in it as well.   The contest is about Islamic Unity.  If you felt like you had time, try to participate.

Hab eben deine Bilder entdeckt! Nicht nur, dass sie sehr hübsch gezeichnet sind, ich mag auch den Standpunkt, den du öffentlich machst.
Ich bin nichtmuslimische Deutsche und bin gegen Ausländerhetze und Verallgemeinerungen von Angehörigen einer Religion. Ich kann mich nicht erinnern, dass es mir irgendwie schlecht ging aufgrund der Muslime in meinem Umfeld (bei Jobsuche o.ä.). Und ISIS und Konsorten sind schlichtweg das, was früher die Spanische Inquisition im "christlichen Abendland" war. Also nicht gerade stellvertretend für einen Glauben.

Peace :)

Gute Nachrichten Tuffix,
Tunesien ist als einziges Land Nordafrikas von der Organisation Freedom House als frei eingestuft worden, Tunesien ist ein echtes Vorbild hoffentlich folgen auch bald seine Nachbarn,

Liebe Grüße
