Self absorbed Bitch.

i’m a bitch because i can recognize that i’m not ugly, that i can laugh at someone calling me unattractive for reasons as petty as hair on my legs which EVERYONE grows?

She is most definitely not a Bitch, but yes, self absorbed I’d say from the copious amounts of selfies she takes.

"Girls are raised in a society where flattering clothing means clothing that makes you look skinnier. Where fat is an insult more often than a noun and not just a physical description but a reflection of personality. Where “you look healthy” is what you say when a girl gains weight, but “you look good” is what you say when a girl loses weight. Girls are raised in a society that teaches them it is their own responsibility to be as small as possible because they do not deserve to take up space."

Where twerking originated

muthafuckas need to learn

I hate when people say it’s not the same thing. Like sure the social context may have changed but the style of dance is the same. A lot of the things we do today got passed down and we don’t even realize… Like sucking our teeth out of frustration is a habit that comes out of west Africa.

Other things include

Rolling in an entourage. In my culture it is taboo to go to events e.g to visit the in-laws without an entourage. You have to take your people. A person without people is unheard of. Just taboo.

Speaking in rhyme and using metarphors. Using metaphors is also  sign of respect ‘hlonipha’. You can’t just blurt out things, you’ve got to couch them well.

Pouring libations. Honour for the ancestors.

Name checking and calling out your bragging right. An age old African tradition, Everytime we went to visit my grandparents they’d welcome us at the gate and they’d invoke the answers by name checking and bragging about their feats.

Twerking has it’s roots in Africa however, because twerking is a very provocative dance, a lot of it was done in private specifically amongst fellow women , for example the coastal women of Kenya only do it on the eve  wedding night when they’ve gone to keep the bride company and to advise on tings and tings..y’know girl talk and how it gets raunchy.

yup! rolling with an entourage:because people can truly tell who you are, by who you chill with. and theirs a Nigerian proverb that says that better XD

"Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another man more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest."

The Sociological Cinema

There was actually research that was done that found that women who used an “I have a boyfriend/husband” excuse to reject unwanted sexual attention and harassment by their bosses were more likely to be left alone than those who used any other excuse (including “I’m not interested”)

Because men respect another man’s property (and that’s how they see us) than a woman’s autonomy.

WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW, GENDER ROLES?

This is actually probably the best way to do things.

that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.

Always reblog.

I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.

I love that last gif.  She looks so frustrated.  Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”

She does have a point though..

Kids who are smarter than adults though.

This is how you handle getting your privileged called out. 

Not “reverse racism!” Not “heterophobe!” and all those other dynamics that don’t exist. Just recognition. Recognition of privilege (and hopefully continuous self-checking)

These people told me I should lose a couple of pounds (60 pounds to be exact) for boys to like me and if I want to wear pretty clothing and it's made me really scared to eat.

F.U.C.K. T.H.E.M.

LISTEN HERE, YOU STUNNING BABE. YOU BY NO MEANS SHOULD CHANGE YOUR BODY TO “MAKE” BOYS LIKE YOU. ANY BOY WHO WOULD BASE HIS AFFECTIONS ENTIRELY ON YOUR APPEARANCE IS A BOY WHO DOES NOT DESERVE YOU. ANY PERSON WHO BELIEVES YOUR BODY IS THERE FOR BOYS TO LIKE IS AN ASSHOLE. YOUR BODY IS THE VESSEL FOR YOUR SOUL, AND YOU SHOULD DO WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT WITH IT. WEAR CUTE DRESSES AND DYE YOUR HAIR BRIGHT PINK AND GET THIRTY THOUSAND PIERCINGS AND LOVE YOUR BODY AS IT DESERVES TO BE LOVED. IT IS THE CONTAINER FOR ALL THE GALAXIES YOU HOLD AND YOU MUST FEED IT AND CARE FOR IT AND CLOTHE IT AND DISREGARD EVERY FUCKNUT WHO TELLS YOU OTHERWISE.

YOU ARE MADE UP OF CELESTIAL LIGHT AND YOU SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID.
