Hey, assholes earlier in this thread?
Look at this list of words. Really LOOK at it:
Aside from arguably the word ‘fragile’ there’s not a goddamned word on that list that indicates a lack of strength or personal conviction. There’s nothing infantilizing there - unless you’ve already bought into the belief that femininity is inherently infantile.
And Fragile? Know what fragile in this sense indicates? WORTH OF CARE AND PROTECTION. If you think that something that’s fragile can’t also be strong, or that even if it isn’t also strong that it’s not worthy of respect, you are a horrible human being.
What the OP wants is access to the same variety of available identities and social attitudes that white women have access too.
To be motherfucking dainty
And yes, Fragile
Because blackness should not be a fucking special and marked category of femininity.
WHY IS THAT SO FUCKING HARD TO UNDERSTAND?
omg that last post yes!!!
