Big-eyed Girl living in a Crazy World

Just living life the best way I can.

Anonymous said: I'm black. Do you think it's bad that I wear weaves? I have natural hair but I get sew ins because I like the look/lengths. I like the versatility and the change up. So basically I'm asking, do you think I'm giving in to society's standards? Because I just prefer it, idk.


First of all who cares what I think? Secondly why would it matter what I think if I have natural hair and wear sew-ins too? Thirdly, we don’t exist in a vacuous space where our ideas of beauty and convenience are uninformed— they’re pervasively informed and guided for everyone, especially Black people whose ideas about themselves have been deconstructed. So who cares if you are succumbing to “society’s standards”? Why can’t you in that way if so is everyone that wears makeup and participates in capitalism etc. etc. especially if it’s something you like to do honestly don’t let people make you feel bad about it just stay positive. It’s not an indication of how much you love yourself or your blackness or even your hair because there are people that wear their hair natural 24/7 365 and still hate it less than someone wearing weave all year. So I personally say who cares y’know? I love you little angel

boys can be hot without a six pack
girls can be hot without a hairless body
boys can have hair down to their waists
girls can have stretch marks, curves and back fat

gender doesn’t determine what you can and cannot enjoy, what you can and cannot look like or what you can and cannot do
