Feminist. An invisible tattoo branded on select groups of women. Bold and prominently displayed on their body, but one I've become custom to hiding. As a young woman of color who is trying to figure out, and in some cases not figure out, the world, the word feminist has always an uncomfortable one because of its complexities and multi-meaning said to crusade for the same issues. My discomfort for the word isn't rooted in a deep, profound way like not wanting to live life without labels and not feel forced into the confines and borders of a title. More so the discomfort comes from the hypocrisy of the word: feminist has never meant equality from my experience.
I open my own doors. Carry my own bags. And pay for my own Uber. But, am I too independent?
I vowed to never have a baby with a white man not as an act of being anti-White. Declaring to never have a baby with a White man was my way of taking a stance on my own happiness and to never let the thoughts and opinions of others change my perception of my self-love nor what it love looks like in a partner.
For some, the election was America getting it wrong. For others, it was just another day of disappointment.
As a woman with a thick, buxom, voluptuous, full body, clothing automatically fits me differently. That large gap that sticks out in the back of your pants because of your small waist. Hips being accentuated because of a form fitting outfit. Automatic cleavage despite what bra you wear. The list goes on and on when it comes to the complexities of having a fuller frame, which can be interpreted as attention seeking, thirst trapping, or, in particular in this case, being a slut.
Your 20s, and 30s to be honest, is a time of self awareness and exploration. A stage in life often associated with dating, courtship, and weddings. For some this is the time to create a foundation to build on and begin the lifelong journey of love and happiness, while for others, the journey is filled with more bumps and obstacles in the road.

Despite religious preference, part of being human beings, and shared inhabitants of this world, means understanding and respecting one another. This means understanding each others cultures and practices and also being aware of what practices and observances mean.
For the entire month of May, my challenge was to call myself a different variation of the word beautiful on a daily basis. This may seem mundane, or even tideous, however the psychological method behind the madness made me not only accept my new challenge but also say it and mean it.
Arrogant. Obnoxious. Offensive. These words and more have been used to describe Ronda Rousey, but the the first UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion and Olympian’s accolades and accomplishments stretch beyond a few harsh words used to describe her talent and confidence. The core of Rousey’s criticism, along with a large quantity of women, is the continuous label of being “masculine.”
I hope it's not too late to say sorry
I owe an apology to the person that I've hurt the most
