Black Feminist Trap Godde$$. Phenomenal Woman: Anti-Lady.

quote

You’ll probably notice that men tend to sit widely, with their legs open, and women tend to sit with their legs crossed or together.

Why is this? Obviously women aren’t born with the instinct to sit with their legs together, nor are men born with the instinct to sit with their legs apart. It’s socialization.

The ways in which we sit are gendered (like pretty much everything else that we do) and is something we learn through observation, or perhaps even direct education. Have you ever had someone tell you to “sit like a lady?” That’s socialization.

When you hear your mom talk about how fat she is or your uncle make a sexist joke; when you see diet pill commercials on television or listen to your babysitter call someone a slut – these instances don’t just go over your head, as many people like to believe. In reality, you’re taking in these messages.

And although one of these moments might not seem like it can make much of an impact, thousands of them will — and do.

These messages will not only become a part of how you think and perceive the world, but how you think and perceive yourself.

That is, in short, how internalized misogyny becomes an involuntary part of your thinking.

For the people that don’t understand what internalized misogyny is, this article is great (via goddess-river)

 i never sit with legs crossed, and neither do my female friends. actually no girl/woman i know sits with legs crossed… maybe it also depends on countries?

I detect no lies.

It really angers & disgusts me the way black women’s bodies are demonized and white women’s bodies are a sign of all that’s pure. The amount of hate that Nicki Is getting (especially from black men & women) for this image is astounding. But, like she clearly illustrated, had it been a white woman it would’ve been all good.

I’m here for black women, whether they wanna be covered from head to toe or completely ass nekkid. It’s their choice & they all deserve respect.

Nicki Minaj speaking up about the backlash she received for her “Anaconda” cover. There will forever be a difference in how black bodies are viewed even when being marketed the same way. When black women show their bodies they are hoochies and hoes. But when white women show their bodies in a similar or even more revealing manner it is ART or fine. It can be sold in stores, seen in households without a second glance. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with women showing skin but pointing out there’s no difference between the two. Intersectionality is real. Hard out here for black women. Feminist movement never claimed us.

Shoutout to Nicki Minaj for pointing out how Black female sexuality is hyper-policed at all times.

Did anyone else found this scene strangely added in as a clue? as to what might happen later on in season 4. Why would Stiles dad be hiding mail in his work office not only just any mail but a letter from Eichen House where Stiles was held in season 3 part 2. My theory might be that Stiles is probably going to end up in the Eichen House again not sure why but it probably is going to have to deal with what might happen with the killings or maybe they might just end up going back for Meredith remember who he met in Eichen House where Jeff already said that she was a banshee and remember Season 4 is suppose to have Lydia’s story involved somewhat. What about Claudia Stilinski being well and alive? Have we ever thought of that. I just found it weird that everyone skipped this really large clue that was added in.

Teen Wolf Season 4

This week’s episode was so funny! As strong as last season was, I really missed Stiles for the funnies. Also I hate when people say something in the show is unrealistic…bruh its a show about werewolves. The whole thing is unrealistic. 

Anyway, why……was there a soundproof room in Lydia’s lakehouse and faces in the walls when she played the record? And how was the password to unlock the code Allison? Does that mean that these new hunters are seeking some type of vengeance for Allison’s death in the name of the Argents? 

Shoutout to the introduction of a new black female character because idk what happened to the other woman (related to the vet).

Um….Lydia is probably really really going through a lot I hope they explore. The death f her best friend and it seems like her family is having financial troubles.
