Are non-black people not able to see the difference??? Black people don’t simply stop washing and grooming our hair to achieve locs. Locs (and EVERY OTHER STYLE WE WEAR including, but not limited to, braids, twists, afros, and even wigs/weaves) are the complete damn opposite of what white folk tried to tell us for hundreds of years was true. We are not, and have never been, a dirty or unkempt people. We have always taken pride in our appearance and our style has always been FAR more intricate than chunks of matted yuck! White people with dreads is top tier white privilege. 😖
I don’t wanna die before white people just let us be great. I want that to happen sometime in my earthly life. I want our hair and skin and lips and hips to be acceptable and not just sexualized. I want movies about Egypt to cast black folk as the slaves/servants AND the Pharaohs. I want black kids to go to the corner store for skittles and make it home in one piece, and if they DON’T I want whatever weapon formed against them to be found guilty.
Sex workers get so much shit and deal with more than the rest of us and are more likely to be in dangerous situations and experience abuse and all you greasy fucks have to say that they don’t have respect for themselves. Oh yeah? If you knew and understood what they do and why they do it then you’d support them more than glorifying racist bastard cops.
support young girls writing mary sue stories. support girls who create spaces for themselves where they can be anything they want. a world where they can be strong and smart and beautiful and everything else society tells then they can’t be
I see more pro-choicers advocating for comprehensive sex education, how to have safer sex, and providing information and resources for contraceptives, and yet, I don’t see any pro-lifers providing information to their followers on how to prevent pregnancy and have safe sex, other than “don’t have sex”, which is serious malarkey.
