Like don’t sit here and claim to be a feminist but you’re tearing down young black girls because you think they’re ghetto.
Bitches are hating wayyy too hard on Bring It for no reason other than it’s a show starring young black women.
Happy Black Woman. In pursuit of Justice, Love and Truth. Living, learning and growing. Taking it one day at a time.
ibarelyknow asked: Wait, what's wrong with Ass Whoopin? What am I missing?
My personal opinion goes like this:
- Perpetuates violence as the only form of discipline within Black families.
- Perpetuates the idea of violence being the only way to show loving discipline to children.
- Like in the Vine video, it immediately shuts off the creativity of children for them to be proper.
- Which, y’know, only comes from the fact that Black parents have to police their Black children’s behavior so strongly at home because Black parents know what happens when their children turn into Black adults: their society will actively kill them for stepping out of line in the slightest of ways.
- I don’t think you have to beat a child senseless for them to learn right or wrong, which is what ass whoopin’ implies.
There are more arguments I’m sure, but this is the basic gist of mine. Keep in mind, I don’t have kids, (which you know, but other people don’t,) and my opinion is just from being a survivor of child abuse and trying to undo abuse narratives in my own life.
sometimes people who are sad dont always need the “it gets better talk”
sometimes people just want to hear “you are sad, you are trying your best, and it’s okay. you’re okay and you’re alive and that’s a big accomplishment”
because i know for myself unconditional optimism gets really fucking annoying. sometimes i just want to be sad and have it be okay that im sad.
don’t make me feel weirder than i already do in my own skin.
