I keep seeing articles
and you tubes about
how black women are not feminine
how we need to settle down get married
be someone’s wife
yes I said we
because I am a black woman too.
I question femininity because
I don’t know what that looks like
not dissing my community but the whole
society as a whole.
I cannot be a damsel in distress
if the only time I feel feminine or deemed
feminine is when a male can see or feel
in-between my thighs
like sex is just a daydream
treat the woman good
its not being treated good
its being used
her like a dirty piece of wasteland
once the deed is done.
parents need to fix up
we got a whole mix up in here
young girls seeing mom and dad
at war fighting throwing punches
girls at school as young as 4 having themselves
being touched in the wrong places
but society didn’t teach her yet
how wrong this is.
You see when a young girl sees and feels all of
these things why should she grow
up accepting things
that made her uncomfortable.
Then you see all these Articles on how Femininity
is Killing the black Families
well it starts from home
if you cannot protect
to teach your child
then whats wrong in Society are
