    A really extra way to announce you got a haircut

    Or a very inspiring way for a popular Black British actress many people look up to to reveal she cut off all her damaged, processed, hair (the part many of us fear the most) and decided to start her natural hair journey, at the age of 40 (yes y'all she's 42. I don't see it either).

    But then again if you don't get that, the post wasn't for you anyway, so that's fair. That's fair.

    Also, as I mentioned this post is two years old but things are going very well 😍

    I went to a bookshop and I got dizzy at the amount of books on stuff like “astrological feminism” “reclaiming womanhood through numerology” and all that shit…… One was called “cosmic fanny” or for my french speakers out there, “foufoune cosmique”. I think the fight against patriarchy is going really well

    “But I didn’t and still don’t like making a cult of women’s knowledge, preening ourselves on knowing things men don’t know, women’s deep irrational wisdom, women’s instinctive knowledge of Nature, and so on. All that all too often merely reinforces the masculinist idea of women as primitive and inferior – women’s knowledge as elementary, primitive, always down below at the dark roots, while men get to cultivate and own the flowers and crops that come up into the light. But why should women keep talking baby talk while men get to grow up? Why should women feel blindly while men get to think?”
