maybe i should send you a bill for all my time you wasted
"Have you ever heard the phrase cockblocking? You know, you’re at a bar, talking to a girl, and what happens? Her less attractive friend comes over and ruins everything. Cockblock. Well I have to tell you something guys: I have been the less attractive friend, and you were NOT cockblocked. I was following orders from my better-looking friend that she did not wanna fuck you. …Girls have two signals for their friends: ‘I’m gonna fuck him’ and ‘HELP.’"
The number of “get me out of here” tactics women have developed and shared to help each other escape from overly-insistent-to-borderline-predatory dudes in public places should probably be enough evidence of the existence of rape culture all on its own.
"We want to appear more truthful and knowledgeable, so we look for things to study or unusual experiences that will bring us prestige. We adorn ourselves with titles and awards. We are all deceiving each other. Deep down we feel there is nothing good, beautiful, and true in us, and at the same time we are desperate to show other people how good, beautiful, and truthful we are. And so we deceive ourselves from generation to generation."

"You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all."
What the hell is Good Hair?!
This is a rant. A rant because it’s annoying that Black people continue to think that unless you are a ‘mixed chic’ you can’t have ‘good hair’. WHAT IS GOOD HAIR?!
All hair types are good, it’s your treatment of it that makes it ‘bad’. There are white people with tacky unkept dry hair, same for the Indians and the Douglas or other mixed chics. So what’s your point?! Only a black girl can have bad hair?
I’ve made it my duty to post these pics of one of my gorgeous friends who has NATURAL BLACK GIRL HAIR. She decided to do a blow out and flat iron of her hair and it is so extremely beautiful. This proves how versatile, healthy, pretty, thick, shiny, long and ‘Good’ a black girl’s hair can be.
This isn’t to throw any hate out on persons who aren’t wearing their hair natural but a wake up call. Can the ignorant, condescending and down right foolish remarks about good hair vs bad hair stop.
Thank you :)
