Jada Pinkett-Smith is aware of the critics that frown up their noses at the way she raises her daughter, Willow. Willow cuts, dyes and styles her hair as she pleases, a fact that bothers many who feel girls shouldn’t have that much control over their appearance at such a young age.
Jada decided to address the criticism in a Facebook post:
“A letter to a friend…This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete. The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.”
I’m pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but seriously this is something we should be teaching all our children. Their bodies are theirs, not ours as parents. As soon as you tell someone their body doesn’t belong to theirs you take away so much from them.
I haven’t done one of these in a minute. Oops.
For the first time, I’m in a relationship that didn’t start with me being in Need. I’d always found myself in a moment of distress (damsel and such) before I started a relationship with someone, and they’ve ended in disaster. Every single time. They’ve started on this high of ‘Thank god you’re here” and somewhere in the middle we start to hate and destroy each other and then it ends in .. I don’t even know how to describe it. Chaos. Tears. All of that.
I can’t even explain how incredibly ..different and amazing I feel knowing that I’m in a place in my life where I’m taking care of myself, and I only need him because I love him and nothing would be right if he wasn’t around, if I wasn’t able to talk to him.
For the first time, I’m at a point in my life where everything is where it’s supposed to be and I feel like there’s nothing holding me back from being in this great, amazing relationship. Not even 7.000 miles.
One time in class we were talking about abortion and most of the girls talking were pro-choice and it was a generally calm discussion then one of the pro-life boys used the phrase
“if a girl is stupid enough to get herself pregnant in the first place-“
…he didn’t get to finish the sentence
im laughing so hard because of that gif.
