Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless.
"What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)

We should also note that Black Women are perceived and fetishized as hyper sexual. Which is why mainstream feminists willingly call Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, and Katy Perry revolutionary and in charge of their bodies meanwhile demonizing Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce.

“As I was watching [Beyonce’s visual album] I felt very conflicted. I felt her message felt very conflicted in the sense that on the one hand she is putting herself in a category of a feminist, but then the camera, it felt very male, such a male voyeuristic experience of her.”
Not even kind of shocked that Emma Watson said this. I had a feeling she didn’t really get a grip on feminism, and now I know she doesn’t. 
Women can have and celebrate their sexual identities without being objects for men.

Women can have and celebrate their sexual identities without being objects for men.
And the fact that all Emma saw in the video was a woman acting/dressing/dancing a certain way to ultimately please a man, proves she has a long damn way to go. She hasn’t even retaught herself how to think and see women.

And more importantly: Black women can be sexual beings and celebrate their sexual identities without being sex objects for men. caitlinflavurd:

Please stop complaining about people’s thick accents. They learned an entire language, allowing them to communicate with you; the least you could do is respect that.

someone at my school has lots of time on their hands!!!
it says

“Here’s some food for thought:
you are not beautiful just because you are ‘thin’ or ‘thick’ or ‘perfect’  by society’s standards.
You are beautiful when you *respect* other people’s bodies and begin to love your own! 
So lets all start to love one another and make this world a little brighter!”


i am so in love with this

☮

This might sound lame

but it feels awesome to know that there are so many people who respond positively to me and my fiance as a couple. Because there are so many people who said that we wouldn’t make it this far because we met in high school. That I would look at him differently as we got older because “your first love never lasts”. I don’t tell a lot of people that I don’t know personally that we met when I was sixteen and he was seventeen, because I know they’ll probably have something negative to say about it. My family members would quote statistics to me about young marriage and how the numbers are even worse if you’re black. I’m not saying that we’re a perfect couple (we’ve been together for six years and that takes work). I’m saying that it feels nice to know that even people who don’t know us, who have never met us before can see how much we care about each other and how happy we are just by seeing a picture of us.

We’re both working really hard to build a foundation for our future family and it feels good to know that other people can see that too. You don’t need to always worry about being taken seriously as a young couple and I’ve been doing that for too long. I’ve been trying to prove to my family that our relationship is “real” when I don’t need to because I know it’s real. And it feels good to know that even strangers on Tumblr can see the love between us.
