society wants you to be timid, silent, and docile. i am informed, opinionated, and boisterous. i am that sista with the voice and these ladies are thee perfect caricature of my soul.
"I’m not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me."
This has been a public service announcement by Common
well maybe i dont fucking want to get a guy. maybe i’m not even sexually attracted maybe i wear makeup because oh, i dunno, i fucking LIKE it and it has nothing to do with YOU. maybe what i chose to do with my appearance as a woman has everything to do with what *i* want and NOTHING with what you want, you judgmental self-satisfied jagoff.
fuck off this body policing and slut shaming and misogyny wrapped up in pseudo hip hop consciousness. bullshit is bullshit no matter how much gil scott heron you quote or how much patchouli you burn. miss me with that.
i love you common, but fuck off. so many PRO-black woman messages you could be sending in a clearly misogynist industry and instead you choose to preach about “dont wear makeup or fake hair”. gtfoh. you work in the entertainment industry. even YOU wear fuckin pancake on your face everytime you go out. miss me w this shit, indeed.
"[M]y point is that sex is vastly more than physical attraction. It’s feeling, mood, interest, excitement, sensation, surprise, and intimacy. So guys who think that the best possible sex is with the most physically perfect specimen are idiots and are missing out."
"When you try to stand up and look the world in the face like you had a right to be here, when you do that, without knowing the results of it you have attacked the entire power structure of the western world"
"I couldn’t get myself to read the want ads. The thought of sitting in front of a man behind a desk and telling him that I wanted a job, that I was qualified for a job, was too much for me. Frankly, I was horrified by life, at what a man had to do simply in order to eat, sleep, and keep himself clothed. So I stayed in bed and drank. When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn’t have you by the throat."
"Your task is not to seek for love but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
"No one would take me just as I was, no one loved me; I shall love myself enough, I thought, to make up for this abandonment by everyone. Formerly, I had been quite satisfied with myself, but I had taken very little trouble to increase my self-knowledge; from now on, I would stand outside myself, watch over and observe myself; in my diary I had long conversations with myself. I was entering a world whose newness stunned me. I learned to distinguish between distress and melancholy, lack of emotion and serenity; I learned to recognize the hesitations of the heart, and its ecstasies, the splendor of great renunciations, and the subterranean murmurings of hope. I entered into exalted trances, as on those evenings when I used to gaze upon the sky full of moving clouds behind the distant blue of the hills; I was both the landscape and its beholder: I existed only through myself, and for myself… My path was clearly marked: I had to perfect, enrich and express myself in a work of art that would help others to live."
Um, who is this hot bitch?
the roundness…so aesthetically pleasing…*sighs*
"“acting like a lady” doesn’t change men’s behavior, because an asshole is an asshole is an asshole. telling women that they can control how men treat them is like telling women they can prevent rape. no. your behavior is not someone else’s responsibility. anyone who says otherwise is full of shit."
