mybeautifulambitionx said: I'm not against natural hair because I'm 100% all natural! I straighten my hair because it's easier to work with. I understand what Beyoncé is doing to blue ivy hair! I'm all for it. I just wish I could see some cute lil twist, or some protective braids. Cause you know at the age of two lil black girls hair was braided up with some beads! Lol I'm not saying bey has to do it, but I think that's what black women wanna see In blues hair. Now I love me a good wash and go fro with some good moisture!

She does do protective styles with Blue’s hair as seen here:

We hardly ever see Blue. She’s probably wearing these styles regularly. If her hair wasn’t being properly maintained, it wouldn’t be as thick and long has it is now. I haven’t seen many two-year-olds with that much hair.

"Cause you know at the age of two lil black girls hair was braided up with some beads" — Yeah and a lot of those little black girls now have thinning edges and short hair. Just because it’s done a lot, doesn’t mean it’s good thing.

And she’s only a baby, her scalp is sensitive. Wearing tight twists/braids and barrettes all the time is going to pull out her hair. And think about this: Why does her hair need to be in “cute ponytails" or "beads" as you’re saying? Do little white girls or Asian girls or Hispanic girls have to wear their hair like that? No. Black girls should be able to wear their hair out in that same way if they want to. It shouldn’t have to be pulled back. And where is this "not moisturized" assumption even coming from? The only way you’d be able to tell is if you’ve actually touched her hair.

I appreciate that you’re trying to be natural but you need to do more research on the natural hair movement and black hair care.

👏👏👏👏

Isabella’s Hair and How She Learned to Love It is a children’s book by New York author of Afro-Boricua descent, Marshalla Soriano Ramos.
Ramos, who is also an English as a Second Language teacher, poet and Mom, wrote Isabella”s Hair and How She Learned to Love It “out of a desire to respond to the issues surrounding self image within the Afro-Latino community and to contribute to multi-cultural protagonists being represented in children’s literature” [x].

I knew I matured when I realized every situation doesn’t need a reaction. Sometimes you just have to leave people to continue to do the lame shit that they do. (via cutely-perverted)

No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html

"But womenz are so oppressed! "

You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.

yeah I mean when men beat their women it’s probably because she overcooked dinner or something what a hoe she totally deserves it just like this guy

Just like all those 18 other people she assaulted instigated her! </sarcasm>
Open your fucking eyes.

truest feminist you’re the dumbest thing to walk this earth.stop calling yourself a feminist, because you’re not.
the facts are, that bitch crazy, and she should not have gotten off, whether it’s because she’s a woman or not.
it wasn’t self defense, there was no reason to ever get violent in the first place, and to stab him (IN THE FACE).
so yeah.
he deserves his justice.
cause had this been reversed, shit would have hit the fucking FAN.

nah she is a feminist.  this is what a lot of feminists and women in general think that committing violence against men is acceptable. 
Which is why I will continue to say that feminism is not an answer for black women because white feminists are crazy as bat shit. 

no.. she isn’t a feminist.
what are you talking about?

feminism isn’t about letting women finally have reign over men.
nor is it that “feminism” is now about wanting to be treated like a man.

feminism is about being treated human.

feminism
is
about
equality.

and she may be batshit crazy, but that’s why i ain’t having none of it. 

she, like any other person that takes that woman’s side, is choosing to ignore straight facts that were put out there. the same way some folk are ignoring hardcore evidence of the mike brown case.
she is taking that woman’s side because she is a woman. and that isn’t feminism.

open your eyes and do some research, because i fear your information and/or knowledge of feminism isn’t correct. black women need true feminism just as much as every other woman, if not more, to help us move along and closer to a better path of equality.
