My parents are Turkish and Muslim, and I was born here. I feel like Im falling in love with American culture as I have normally identified quite strongly with Turkish and Islamic culture. Im thinking of changing my religion, too, and start dating, and be okay with drinking alcohol (when Im 21 and up), and feel like an American only. What do I do?



I think its a pretty sad indictment that you don't feel its possible to identify as an American muslim. Like you said in your other thread you want to convert to Judaism just because of this.

This is why it makes me laugh when we're told by the usual suspects that Islamophobia doesn't exist.
