Ask Your Doctor if This New Anti-Islamophobia Medication is Right for You

Suffering from blatant bigotry? Filled with irrational hatred? Seduced by Trump? The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has the product for you: Islamophobin, the new anti-Islamophobia chewing gum.

CAIR recommends the product for people who:

  • Fear and hate Muslims

  • Are suspicious of people who don’t look like you, sound like you, dress like you, or believe as you

  • Get abnormally nervous when you see a Muslim or someone who you think is Muslim

  • Pray that a Muslim is not on your flight

Islamphobin (an actual chewing gum) is part of CAIR’s most recent anti-Islmophobia awareness campaign, and part of the group’s broader efforts to track and counter anti-Muslim bigotry in the United States. Considering the national (and global) rise of hatred against Muslims and the blatant fear-mongering at play this election season, it would be awesome if there were actually a medicine that could guarantee decent human behavior. But awareness campaigns like this are a good start. And of course, important for any kind of feminist work, in which anti-Islamophobia must occur alongside opposition to all other forms of racial and cultural discrimination
