I love this website, because I don't feel so alone.
I am exactly like that too...
I understand completely.. I feel the exact same way you do..
well im here if you need someone
I'm sorry. I'm not one of them, but I still hate that they do that to you. My best friend is Muslim, I'm Catholic, and I wish people wouldn't be so petty. Stay strong.
Play along. As most of the commenters said, it's better to laugh it off and show them it doesn't effect you than to mope around about it. I know it's hard but in a few years people will forget. If you believe in that religion, don't give a shit about what they say. You know your a good person and that's all that matters.
you know i have been bullied about being German since i was little. i can feel your pain. sometimes you feel like you have to hide or not tell people at all. the worst part is when you have to learn almost every year in history class about the Holocaust. it makes you feel bad like it is your fault. but this past year when in history class it came up, i didn't shy a way. i told the class i was and i ended up translating some of the text so the class had a better insight. and i was able to share stories about what happened in the camps because my great aunt live in them for most the war. i hope this helps and don't shy away from being whou r...
I am so sorry for all the horrible comments people are leaving here. Some people make me sick. Stay strong <3
of course he died, he flew a plane into the twin towers..
I feel bad that I laughed...
c'mon! that post completely set me up to type that XD i couldn't resist! besides, if she can't learn to laugh at herself than she's gonna get bullied a lot rougher. Lets face it here, everyone is supposed to be oh so careful to offend anyone its pathetic. Grow a freakin backbone, and stop complaining

When did all us lot become more cynical/laughy than Disqus folk? ^.^
That's horrible! That is SO horrible
you are very sick and rude.
I'm going to hell for laughing at this.
You're back! I haven't seen your flying spaghetti monster overlord thing in a wee while. Hi *blushes because you probably don't recognise me and then runs away and hides* :')
Nope, I remember you. Although I just discovered your reply to my comment today... I got a new account though, because apparently you can't post from your SBS account anymore, you have to use that Disqus thing. And can't swear. It's tough.
You know who I blame for this? Toby Keith. Fucking Toby Keith.
All jokes aside, don't take it to heart. If the people are REALLY bullying you for your beliefs, just know that their parents probably raised them to be pride driven assholes. That's not your problem. Keep on bein' Muslim if that's what you feel in your heart. It's a beautiful religion.
Very sorry about your father.
Best wishes! <3
Curiousity: Who's Toby Keith?
He's a country singer/songwriter, so I'm not sure what he has to do with anything o_O
Haha I don't feel so bad about not knowing who he is now, but I think I shall join in blaming him - damn those crooning country tones :P
He sings country music. That's why it's his fault
Oh fuck. Listen to "Courtesy of the Red White and Blue" by Toby Keith. You'll understand why. America does kick ass, but damn. This guy's a psychotic patriot.
I'm sorry OP, but in case you haven't realized it people are stupid everywhere you go.
My best friend used to go through the same shit in middle school so when we got to high school she made a joke out of it. The only difference is she's Indian. (I'm surrounded by idiots.).
Point is take IrishCyanide's advice and play along. It makes life way easier.
Why don't you play along with it so that you're a part of the joke as opposed to the butt of it?
Walk up behind anyone who says you're a terrorist and make explosion noises when you know they're not paying attention. It'll scare the crap out of them and make light of the whole situation.
With regards to your father, counsellors listen, but students don't care. Why would you WANT them to know 'my daddy died in the big bad bomb'... if anything, it'll make 'em think he was the one to crash the plane. Death is private; keep it that way for all your sakes.
Oh, and *no one.
I like the whole "explosion noises" thing.
Like when faggies throw glitter at the people who make fun of 'em :')
I've never heard of that. But it sounds amusing.
I might have read that in a book/seen it on TV then.. :S
