"Here are women who sing about sex. Sexuality. Contemporary womanhood. Wholeness. Arrival. […] The record dismantles the idea that marriage, commitment, or monogamy ruins one’s sex life. It challenges the notion that a woman’s life should be lead in complete service to her child. This album is widely successful because it makes women feel good about themselves. I can see how that might be confusing for some […] Detractors decried the album’s explicit content in typical "Won’t someone think of the children?" form, seemingly forgetting that the singer is 32 and under no obligation to parent any child but her own. BEYONCÉ introduces Knowles as a sexual being, not a being sexualized by industry. She communicates her proclivities in her own certain terms. And yes, that may sometimes involve a duration on her knees. No, you may not watch." - From Janet To Beyoncé: Why It Matters When Black Women Sing About Sexuality

Yea I feel the same everytime I put hispanic on the application. I wonder if I put black and white will I get the job. 

i doubt youd get it if you put black. 

we go through the same discrimination 

Yea do not put Black. I know Latinos and Hispanics get shit on, but I really don’t understand how so many of yall are convinced regular Black folks don’t too. No its not an oppression contest, but it does genuinely shock me. I applied for at least 50-75 jobs before I decided to put mixed on one application. My name is already “white.” I got a call back within 24 hours and an interview within the week. I had a straight weave in my hair that I extended for an extra week cause I knew I probably wouldn’t get the job if I had my natural hair out.

Kids please don’t think that it’s unusual or special to be dating someone with whom you can watch netflix and eat pizza and hold hands and also have hot sex with

It concerns me when I see millions of notes on a post that’s like “fuck me hard but also be sweet with me”

Like what kinds of relationships are you in that you think this is a revolutionary thing to ask

No relationships, that’s what. As in single. As in “#foreveralone.” I think that’s the point of those posts, no?
