Due to relentless and successful cyber attacks intended to make our art appear unworthy the site had to be taken offline. Deteriorating health and dwindling morale over the course of many months resulted in me being unable to continue.
Although I maybe hoping for too much, the website is back online in the hope that the improvements even in the face of sinister attacks would be noticed. These attacks are not merely meant to devalue an individual but to cause set backs to our Islamic feminist movement and we are in dire need of a hero.
The site cannot remain online for long to show stained and defaced artworks in favor of the attackers and to continue to have our art judged unfairly. On top of the stains that cannot be removed, the damage that is being dealt now is becoming increasingly difficult to recover from and has become next to impossible. For example: As shown below, the art on the homepage has the same off white color in the background that is a perfect match for the backdrop of the page, yet the attackers have changed the color making the border of the image visible when it used to invisible. I used to able to change it back the way it should be yet for now it has become impossible.
Sustaining physical injuries that left me scared for life and struggling to get back into costume almost completely ruined me. Several months of taking cyber damage while attempting to clear the destruction left behind has been nerve wrecking. Being forced to take the site down when it could have been avoided has been heart breaking. Being left feeling like people are trying to find fault with me to justify the lack of help has been crushing. I have done no wrong, although I am far from perfect, I have done nothing that justifies how I am left to struggle on my own. English is not my first language and I am mortified of saying the wrong thing like never before. I feel sick to my stomach of being left feeling like people are more interested in finding fault with us to make themselves feel better for not helping. Even if I sold all the art and became rich, I can never trust another human being ever again. I feel sorry for the people who will try to do good with their lives because this is our fate and we are at a disadvantage for wanting to do good... While those who do not care, those who have not been barred from facebook, and those who have not sustained any injury are liked and seem to have no difficulty. I am not sure how long I can hold on for... Oh dear God... Please help us... And please forgive me if I had let you down...
