Girls are told to be skinny but not too skinny and to wear makeup but not so much that guys can tell and to dress in revealing clothes but not too revealing or else you’re a slut and a hundred other contradictory standards so I think guys can deal with being made fun of for wearing fedoras
Yup. And small penis comments.

can’t trust you if you aren’t happy for successful black women
I keep seeing (mostly White) men saying ALREADY “The only good thing about people listening to Beyonce’s album is the reference to Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche’s TEDTALK in Euston”. They are assuming that Black feminists don’t know our own information. This just like Hipster culture to try and take claim to knowledge about Black feminists thought or the feminists themselves in order to assert some sort of superiority or “dominance” over the audience to which the thought is directed. FYFI (for your fucking information) most Black women already knew about Adiche’s TEDTALK from April. You’re fucking late. The GIF sets have tens of thousands of notes on this platform so please spare me the self-righteous bullshit. These same White men are the ones who, if you go on Youtube right now and check the comments section, are the same people saying that Adiche “didn’t quite prove her case” for why we should all be feminists, and that she “did it wrong”, etc. I just wish for once that people would stop posturing Black feminism, Black feminists, and Black feminist issues to use in their game of upmanship because they don’t actually give a flying fuck about any of the three.
