When confronted with something out of their comfort zone, like me and my boyfriend in full drag dancing down the road, muslims like all British people get flustered and over compensate with being overly polite -- a bit like Hugh Grant.
When finding out you have been dating your boyfriend for 5 years your muslim neighbours will be disgusted that you haven't proposed. You hear "get a civil partnership -- for your mothers sake" a lot.
The media stories about islam meant that I was genuinely a little nervous about moving in across the road to a mosque. What I have learnt in the four years since I moved is that the ridiculousness of British culture is universal. We all love tea, are really polite and tut rather than saying something, no matter our religion.
