    Do people look at you negatively for leaving? Does this cause any problems? Do you currently follow any other religion? Do you miss anything from being Muslim? Sorry for so many!

    why did u stop being a muslim?
    Well, ever since I was younger, I was raised with the mindset that all non-muslims are disgusting and will burn in hell. I had access to the internet at a young age and I met so many lovely people that were non-muslims, and the thought of having to hate them seemed so wrong.

    Secondly, I was forced to wear a headscarf. It sounds like nothing, but it made me feel like crap wearing it. Eventually, I stopped wearing it and my extended family stopped talking to me. Female bodies were treated as being disgusting, as well. It was just so many factors.

    Honestly, I haven't told any of my family members that I don't believe in Islam. Well, I've told my mum and my brother. My mum kind of just refuses to believe it, and thinks I don't mean it. Her response is typically 'Don't say that!'. My brother doesn't really care. So no, it doesn't really cause that many problems. The only 'problem' I have is when I'm debating about equality with my uncles/aunts and they just reply with "Well it's in our religion", which immediately shuts me up.

    Honestly, I think I'm agnostic, rather than atheist. I do believe there's some sort of God/higher power, but I'm just not entirely sure.

    Honestly, I don't really miss anything from being Muslim.

    I'm not a fan of pasta, lmao. I think that's just mainly because I can't cook. Every time I try to make pasta, it tastes like crap.

    Preferably not. I mean if I really liked someone, maybe. But I'd just prefer not to.

    I've also heard of people being threatened for leaving. That's mainly why I haven't told anyone. I was brought up surrounded by lots of Muslims, so honestly, I don't even know how to bring it up.

    Did you only leave because of how the media portrays Muslims?
