How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Who makes the rules?
Being aware of the tricks and attempts at manipulation sent your way is certainly a must, but this doesn’t require you get angry or fearful. Simply side-step these persons and keep walking. How emotionally invested you become in the efforts of black trolls is often an indicator of how far removed you actually are from these constructs. If they have the ability to tap into a high level of your emotion, you are NOT free. It’s as simple as that.
More artistry from our favorite BB&W poet…
House Republicans think rape is negotiable. I think it’s safe to say all is lost…
This may be one of the THE MOST INSIGHTFUL infographics for the single ladies…lol
It isn’t enough to pretend that your being with one guy is enough to save your life and your womb. Because it’s not. Get tested often, and always use protection. Monogamy isn’t a condom.
“I do strongly suspect that this behavior is a sadistic attempt to encourage black women into a mentality and lifestyle that “protects them” from being feminine little girls. Because there are too many predators in the black community who don’t see a sweet little girl. Instead, they see a wet hole just asking for it because she’s a ho anyway.”
Speaking of shaming…
What women do with their privates is no one else’s business and it doesn’t harm anyone as long as the sex is consensual and safe right? I disagree. I think some people are oblivious to the fact that there are sexual norms (it’s intro social psychology and sociology). Sometimes these people even propose that “anything sexual is normal as long as it’s consensual”. They don’t realize that they are establishing the new sexual norm of ‘anything goes and everything is okay’ and that there is something ‘abnormal’ about you if you think otherwise.
The Pentagon wants to allow women on the front-lines of combat. But, do the ends justify the means?
Jenn breaks it ALL THE WAY DOWN!
Ever had someone declare your anger? Without your input? Well, that’s because you’re an angry black woman, a Sapphire to be exact. Melissa Harris-Perry uncovers this stereotype as the third and perhaps most dubious image in the crooked room.
Was Caroline Wozniacki being racist when impersonating Serena Williams? How should Williams have responded?
Ever since BB&W regular, Law Wanxi, wrote to me with an uncomfortable truth, that women are pretty much on their own when it comes to birth control, the more I believe he might be right. That’s why I got excited when the geniuses at the University of Washington have created a dissolving female condom that not only protects women from unwanted pregnancy, but is said to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS.
You’ve heard about the “crooked room,” now meet the characters posted on the walls. First up, the Jezebel.
Does it seem like women’s reproductive rights have been at the forefront of virtually every senatorial, gubernatorial, or presidential election debate thus far? Well, maybe that’s because as the parties polarize, more extreme views of social issues become the norm. So, what does this mean for the epic Roe v. Wade? Only time will tell…
Why can’t the grown up have a night of mischief, too?
