The Black Community and R. Kelly

I’m disgusted by the Black community’s reaction to the “Surviving R. Kelly,” documentary. Instead of considering how serious this issue is, people have resorted to jokes. Instead of supporting Black women, Black people went to stream R. Kelly’s music. Instead of speaking out against sexual assault, Black people jumped to R. Kelly’s defense. I’m disappointed...

Black Women Are NOT Your Superheroes

I’m over Black women being painted as superheroes, saviors, and goddesses. You would think these images would be flattering. But they’re not so flattering when you really think about it. Often in the Feminist and Pro Black Community, Black women are called these names when it is convenient. But both communities have a habit of... Continue Reading →

White Feminists and Hoteps

Lets talk about two of the most annoying self proclaimed activists: White feminists and hoteps. I always considered them one in the same. They are both 50% privileged and 50% marginalized.

The Pro-Hoe movement is about sexual liberation. It’s about getting rid of the stigma surrounding women and sex. I’ve seen men and women try to reduce this... Continue Reading →

Stop Slut Shaming

It’s 2017 and women’s bodies are still offending people. This is getting really old. A woman has the right to cover up her body and she has just as much of the right to show it off. We can have sex or we can choose not to. That is no one else’s business. Men post... Continue Reading →

Women Don’t Owe You Anything

(If this offends you, it’s probably because you are guilty of these beliefs. Get over yourself and do better.) Women are not here for your satisfaction, to make you feel like a “man”, or to turn you on. We should be able to reject a man without fearing for our lives. Stop invalidating our feelings...
