you're a strong woman that don't need no man

Can people please stop going on about how black female characters need to stay single so that they can be strong and independent and your beacon of feminism? Stop. Seriously stop that shit. A black woman on the show being the only one to not be in a romantic relationship is not progressive. It’s not empowering. It is not empowering to turn on a tv show and see that character constantly be in the background when everyone else falls in love. Not when you’re constantly having studies coming out saying that black women are the least attractive, least desirable, and least likely to be married among their counterparts. Saying you need to see someone be single and proclaiming that it hasto be the black female character is gross. Stop it. Stop it. Stop it!

anonymous asked:

You are a strong, independent woman. I know that's a term used a lot nowadays but it's true:) no one, especially not a man, can make you feel inferior/sad/etc without your consent. Hold your head up strong and someday the right guy will be the one to stand next to you and lift you up when you feel down. Don't let this one boy make you feel down. You're so damn wonderful and funny. I hope you know and believe that, darling. xx

AND I DON’T NEED NO MAN, you are so cute ily

That feeling
The feeling all the poets talk about.
The feeling when I hear your name, the feeling when I look into your eyes.
Oh your eyes, they are like heaven to me.
That is why the poets continue to write. 
That is why I have loved you.
When you look at me I feel like I have swallowed 10,000 butterflies all at once.
I understand the concept of being lost in your eyes. 
I can’t make eye contact with you, I know I will melt into a puddle of affection and I’m a feminist and feminist don’t melt!
I'm always having to tell myself “I AM a strong independent woman who don't need no man” but you're my snowflake dear
