So someone sent this to me after my last post about wanting men to walk in women’s shoes and feel what they feel when they’re being harassed on the street. It’s about a woman who turned herself into a man for 18 months and what she learned through that experience. I’m sorry but I found most of it to be bullshit and I don’t see how it compares to what I and most women...
I just wish that men could walk in women’s shoes for one day. I want them to understand what it’s like to walk home at night and have a guy follow you to try and get your number even though you show no signs of interest. I want them to know what it’s like for a guy to just grab you because he wants your attention when you’ve never met him before. To be cursed out because...

Attention to all those voting for Obama!!!!!
studsensation: Do NOT choose “All democrat” first because it takes Obama off and he will NOT get your vote. So vote for Obama FIRST and then you can select “All democrat”. Do NOT be fooled by this “glitch”. Smh That’s only an option in 14 out of 50 states AND the only state that requires you to pick the presidential candidate separately is North Carolina. Also, if you read the...
I was talking to a girl today about church. She told me she believes in God but doesn’t go to church every weekend. Then she talked about her friend who found Jesus and started going to church more often. That friend started to push her away because she wasn’t Christian enough (mind you the girl is one of the nicest, well behaved, 18 year olds ever). So the girl decided to go to church...
I accept my church’s doctrine… but I refuse to impose it on others.– Vice President Joe Biden Amen
What do I love? Books! I’ve been addicted to reading ever since I learned English and my parents took me to the library for the first time. I used to get in trouble for reading too much because I would be up reading instead of sleeping, I would bring my books to the dinner table, I would be reading and watching tv etc… I always wanted to be part of a book club but I never found one, or...
Always Progressing: One Year →
julz2natural: So it’s been one year since I got my last perm. I can’t believe I did it. Well I’m not sure what the exact date was but I know I got a perm 2 weeks before my birthday and today makes 2 weeks before my birthday. When I got that perm I regretted it and I told myself that it would be my last. I had…

preachdotcom: One amazing feat regarding the Presidential elections that many people are not aware of is early voting. Some candidates actually prefer that people use this mechanism to give them an idea of where they stand in the elections. For example, in places like Iowa you do not have to wait until November…

UPDATE: Gabby Douglas leads Team USA to the Gold. →
crunkfeministcollective: I purposely titled this essay to highlight Gabby Douglas’ leadership of the USA Women’s Gymnastics Olympic Team, which she led to victory yesterday, by capturing 33% or 1/3 of the total points the team received. You heard right. This kid, who commentators continue to suggest is “unable to handle the pressure,” was the only member to compete in all four events —...

Why black women should date white men
I came across a post about why black men prefer white women today. I read it and was not amused (it was meant to be funny apparently). I wondered if the men would find it as funny if I wrote some as offensive reasons to date white men instead of black men. Probably not, but here you go! Their list is on top and mine is right under in italics. 10. White girls can get their hair wet. It’s summer...

I’m not getting into this. I…

Why I can't be a Republican
I’ve been thinking about my decision to be a Democrat and not a Republican or even Independent because someone asked why like a week ago. I think I just joked on iy or dismissed them because I didn’t feel like talking about it. I decided to become a registered Democrat because I can’t afford to be anything else right now. I feel like because of who I am and at this stage in my...
A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.– Gloria Steinem
Feminists hate men
I despise the fact that people automatically categorize feminists as men haters. One thing I’ve noticed among my peers is that many of them think that feminists are lesbians who hate men and is anti anything men do or say and want to see men suffer so that females can be on top and in charge. Excuse my language but that shit is very annoying. Most feminists I know do not hate men. They do...

This is a rant My last post was about how terrible Fifty Shades of Grey is and I’m back to writing about these books. I only started reading it because everyone recommended it and my co-workers especially were pushing me towards reading it. One day we’re at work and there is nothing to do so everyone pulls out their book and starts reading (me included). I’m reading and thinking...
