The -F Word *covers mouth dramatically*

Yes! Two posts in one day! Who knows… it may be three. I keep trying to convince you guys I’m not in control of my thoughts. Well now I want to keep it simple and discuss…. feminism. *gasps* yes. the -F word that sends trembles through even the strongest people, but that’s where people have it confused. People equate feminism with man hating, she women who think that we can lift cars and fly or some other super human insane things.

Okay well if I put enough thought into it… I’m sure I could, but come on people! Feminism is simply believing EVERY person is equal regardless of race, gender, sexuality, etc. Although many believe that will never be possible… if we STOPPED thinking in terms of outward appearances maybe it could be. The same goes for women. We can’t one day say “I’m a woman treat me equal”, and then the next say “I’m a woman, treat me as such” Sorry I’m all for contradictions, but let’s put that one back in the top drawer and close it back, lock it, flush the key, and never go look for it again.

Feminism is not about hating men. In fact I appreciate our men. I appreciate what they do for us. I completely agree we should be equal across ALL spectrums but I must say I appreciate my black men for raising black women to believe they are just as equal as every other woman because society does not equate them as such.

Now, next time you drop the -F bomb… let’s not picture “she-man men haters” but let’s picture everybody of all races, genders, and sexualities holding hands and singing kumbuyah! Pretty nice image right??

Until next time guys 🙂 Nikki Ouuuuuut 🙂

Have you thought today?

Who knows how often I’ll blog? Some days I have a million things going through my head at once. But I do have a challenge for my readers! Take at least 7 minutes out of your day to think! No one around, no phone, no TV, *possible music* and think! Just bask in all the thoughts you have. I’m not talking about any heavy meditating or anything, just thinking. Don’t control your thoughts. Just let them come. Who knows? You could come up with something great? A poem? A new idea? A paper idea? a career move? It’s just your time, and great thing about it you can do it anywhere, now I wouldn’t advise you to do it in class but say you’re riding the bus, put in your headphones (cover your purse) and go into your own mental paradise.

I tend to do this alot, more often than not. I have a really interested mind I can tell you guys that. I think my thoughts would throw the grumpiest old man into a fit of giggles. Sometimes I imagine a gang full of butterflies attacking the person sitting slumped in the corner and wrapping themselves around her in a hug making her bust into a smile, but it’d probably be my luck she’d be terrified of butterflies and then my optimism wouldn’t be of benefit… but it’d still be kind of funny.

Well I leave you with this today… Have you thought today?!
