Woman. that word holds so much in it. my sex. my identity. both a label and a literal way of being. a controversy. a package of roles to ascribe to. a performance. am i less of a woman if i don't cross my legs when i sit? if i don't cook often (and i don't enjoy it)? would i be less of a woman if i never bore children from my womb? if i chose to never be a parent? if i never got married? am i less of a woman if i don't defer to a man? if i am independent? if i can provide for my own wants and needs? if i am loud, passionate, bold? the point of today and feminism in general is to let women decide for themselves, by themselves, who and what they want to be. so, i am...loud, passionate, sassy, outgoing, outspoken, smart, and independent. i don't always shave. i wear make up like twice a year. i'm "ratchet". i speak culturally, not academically. and i, too, am a woman. #internationalwomensday #blackgirlsmatter #blackgirlmagic #aintiawoman #feminist
Today jay became the first rapper ever to be listed in this category. how's that for some black history?! 💁 #blackhistorymonth✊ #blackexcellence
I grew up on @iamjojo. i wanted to be her. she was sassy and unapologetic and bold (she still is). her music was 🔥 and her voice was hand crafted by heaven. as a kid i sang her songs, not being able to relate but acting like i knew. she seemed sooo much older then (we're 2 years apart 😝 ha!).i've lived alot of life since then. now her songs make sense. tonight, she was singing my life with her words. sinus infection and all, she powered through and served us vocals like she was ascending into the pearly gates. and with the most positive attitude and happiest face i've seen in a while. thank you! for your spirit and your professionalism and badassery and empowerment. thank you for not giving up. thanks for being jojo. #madlove.
