Anonymous said: I'm black. Do you think it's bad that I wear weaves? I have natural hair but I get sew ins because I like the look/lengths. I like the versatility and the change up. So basically I'm asking, do you think I'm giving in to society's standards? Because I just prefer it, idk.
First of all who cares what I think? Secondly why would it matter what I think if I have natural hair and wear sew-ins too? Thirdly, we don’t exist in a vacuous space where our ideas of beauty and convenience are uninformed— they’re pervasively informed and guided for everyone, especially Black people whose ideas about themselves have been deconstructed. So who cares if you are succumbing to “society’s standards”? Why can’t you in that way if so is everyone that wears makeup and participates in capitalism etc. etc. especially if it’s something you like to do honestly don’t let people make you feel bad about it just stay positive. It’s not an indication of how much you love yourself or your blackness or even your hair because there are people that wear their hair natural 24/7 365 and still hate it less than someone wearing weave all year. So I personally say who cares y’know? I love you little angel

destroy this new idea that a woman can’t be strong if she cries over a man she’s lost. destroy the idea that you have to be cold and emotionally detached in order to be a strong woman
She asked how could I love her. She insisted she had holes. She insisted she was broken. So I asked her if she thought the Moon was beautiful…and if so, then did she ignore it’s craters? did she ignore it’s scars? The faults in it had no effect, how could she not see I viewed her the same.
