    Agreed. You won't hear a peep from her would be my guess.

    Somehow I doubt that this was going to be discussed in her little pow wow conference about the difficulties of being a Muslim woman in the west

    Which is at the heart of why people dislike her.

    Muslim women have it infinitely better in the West than they do in Muslim majority countries.

    Not opinion. Fact.

    So when she shits on Australia and tells us how racist and Islamophobic we all are it just grinds peoples gherkins.

    I haven't followed her story at all. Obviously through the media and in here I'm aware of her comments about Islam being a feminist religion and the "lest we forget" stuff but I haven't heard of her saying we are all racists and Islamophobes. Did she actually say this?

    She definitely made a comment about moving overseas because of the attitude of Australians to Islam.

    Yep, makes you wonder why she didn’t move to an Islamic country.

    Sometimes it feels like I've got an invisibility shirt on when trying to order a beer... other times i get served really quick. I never wear active gear or a headscarf. Sometimes shit happens.

    If I have to wait more than 3 mind, let alone closing in on half an hour, to get my coffee order taken, then I'm out of that cafe and onto the next.

    No cafe owner in their right mind is going to intentionally have a table producing zero dollars for an hour.

    Just sayin'

    Let's not pretend there isn't special treatment given to those with active wear.........

    Depends

    Some wearers of active wear are clearly not very active

    Most of the people I know are pretty active, although my experience is obviously not necessarily representative of the general population

    It's also part of the basic bitch fashion line

    Well f**k, I waited 40 minutes at Stellarossa for my lunch and coffee the other week. And when I asked them where it was it turns out that they forgot to put my order through.

    All this time I just assumed it was because their customer service was shit when in fact it turns out it was because of my skin colour!

    I feel so violated.
