What is Feminine?…

Note: This post is meant for women who want to be more feminine in the old fashioned sense. It’s really not about being a male-identified woman or about arguing whether being feminine is right or wrong. Women are free to make the choice to be old fashioned feminine. This is somewhat of a tutorial of a specific type of femininity, not all forms of femininity. This is not meant to pressure you to be something else or dictate what you should wear or behave :)

‘Beasts of the Southern Wild': Quvenzhané Wallis Steals the…

The movie is based on a stageplay called Juicy and Delicious written by a non-Black woman so yes, I was wondering if they chose to cast this role with a little Black girl because imagining a little White girl enduring this level of neglect and abuse was impossible.

One Blogger Says, “Feminism Ruined Courtship”…

Feminism has left a relationship vacuüm resulting in confused women who do not know how to interact with men thus making them more vulnerable to exploitation by relationship predators. This ideology has attacked femininity in women and promoted misandry. Instead of equality, this movement created a gender war between men and women.

Niala: Dress Smart Like a London Lass…

Walking the streets of London is equivalent to walking down a haute couture runway. When I leave my flat, I have to keep up with the well-dressed women (and men) of London that constantly have me flipping through the glossy pages of my fashion magazines.

400 Pound Woman Makes Easy Target for Rupert Murdoch…

But, and this is just me thinking out loud, with black women leading the pack in obesity in America, we just make it too damn easy for men like Rupert to take shots at us. We walk right into those stereotypes, Doritos and Twinkies in hand. And…AND…she’s 32, walking with a cane. Three-TWO. She is way too young to be that big, I don’t care if she is just five inches shy of seven feet tall.

Why Do Some Black Women Reject Self-Improvement?…

  I’ll warn you right now that this will sound harsh but I hope that you can hear the caring message I’m trying to send. I think Black women can do better and be better because we are much better than the world and many of us believe! We need to stop having low standards […]
