I was raised in a conservative household in Mississauga, Ont.

My parents are from Somalia and as practicing Sunni Muslims, it was important for them to instil Muslim values and manners in me.

(It is seen as vandalism of the unblemished holy body, but since I consider tattoos and piercings to be beautiful, I am comfortable laying claim to both parts of my identity.)

I hate when people refuse to see me as an individual, instead pigeon-holing me as someone who isn’t Muslim…or who’s not interested in a traditional relationship. I can be non-traditional in some ways—for example, holding body positive, feminist and sex positive views—and yet still want a “traditional” relationship.
