healthy black woman

We see movies in which people are represented as being in love who never talk with one another, who fall into bed without ever discussing their bodies, their sexual needs, their likes and dislikes. Indeed, the message received from the mass media is that knowledge makes love less compelling; that it is ignorance that gives love its erotic and transgressive edge. These messages are often brought to us by profiteering producers who have no clue about the art of loving, who substitute their mystified visions because they do not really know how to genuinely portray loving interaction.

I’m so sad/angry/bitter that Pitch got cancelled. And I knew it was going to happen, I knew it, but seeing it confirmed, *deep sigh*.
It was so, so good. I mean, the first female pitcher in the Major Leagues!! A show that handled themes like sexism, mental health, rape culture, among others in an amazing way! A diverse cast! Healthy, platonic relationships! A BLACK WOMAN AS A LEAD! And people just slept on it. I’m going to be bitter about this one for a long time.
