Update to add: Ex-Muslims of North America started this hashtage to highlight the often-neglected experiences of ex-muslims.
If you’re an ex-Muslim, contribute. If you’re not, read (and contribute: nons are tweeting their reactions, urging others to read, etc).
It’s powerful, some of it desperately sad, some of it joyous.
A few (without handles):
When the brothers of women you know from prayer tell you in the streets that you deserve to be sold into prostitution #AnApostatesExperience
Losing the friendship of every non-relative Muslim I knew & the love of some relatives #AnApostatesExperience
“Watching your mother accept she’s not allowed to visit her child’s grave, and not being able to say anything.” – #AnApostatesExperience
Crying at the end of Disney’s “Brave” b/c Merida resolved their differences and got her mom back…and I couldn’t.
Lying about your values and lifestyle to family so that they will still love you #AnApostatesExperience
Being told by your devout sister(real) that “you deserve to be killed for leaving islam as hadith clearly says” #AnApostatesExperience
