sooo i was just randomly thinking about how the world will never be satisfied with Black Womxn’s freedom + choice to wear their hair how they want. if it’s natural, it’s seen an unprofessional, distracting, dirty, too loud, exotic, and for “creative” or “artsy” purposes. if she wears it straight, she’s trying to be someone she’s not & of course, it can’t be hers if it’s long n shit. if she wears weaves n’ wigs, she’s fabricated, fake, self-hating, and ma other shit. and let’s not even mention the people (esp. entitled ass dudes) who talk ma shit about BW being fake for wearing weaves n wigs then go and make fun of bald womxn, womxn with nappy hair, womxn with short fros n hair, and/or just make the comments that natural isn’t for everybody. i know there’s more to this, but this is all i got righ now.
