- Me: Est-ce que tu aimes le sexe? Le sexe, je veux dire : l'activité physique, le coït. Tu aimes ça? Tu ne t'intéresses pas au sexe ? Les hommes pensent que les féministes détestent le sexe mais c'est une activité très stimulante et naturelle que les femmes adorent
When will I stop belonging
to this hungry thing inside me?
What no one ever talks about
is how dangerous hope can be.
Call it forgiveness
black women breathe flowers,
we are taught to grow them in
the lining of our
quiet (our grandmothers secret).
does not mean
we do not swelter with wild
we soft swim.
we scent limbs.
we just have been too long a
garden for sharp
and deadly teeth.

"This patriarchal capitalist society is designed to keep us unhealthy. Specially all these white supremacist ideas that make people believe that conscious mooning is a white hippy thing, that giving birth to a baby under a tree is white, that gardening organically is white, that meditating is white. I really think that these false ideas create barriers to health that make many of us believe that these practices are so ridiculous and stupid so we end up doing the opposite of so called “white” things and end up hurting ourselves. We start believing that ancestral practices are not ours and we start seeing them as foreign. I refused to use any “eco-friendly” mxnstrual products for years because you know, that was such a white thing to do. I think there is this untold fear of becoming white for some Migrant Brown People, some of us are secretly scared of not being Brown enough."
This whole essay is gold so go read and the entire thing.
