The dude who abused, cheated on, and went back and forth between his two exes and another dude who has like 4 kids with 3 or 4 different women really made a song called “These Hoes Ain’t Loyal.”
And folks let that shit cook. smh
I hate when people say “but pussy doesn’t do anything to degrade women. It’s short for pusillanimous!”
You know DAMN WELL that until you randomly came across that word, you associated “pussy” with the female anatomy. You know you placed weakness into a word you keep at a parallel with women.
I’m pretty sure if you survey 100 people 98 of them would say they think of women and weakness/fragility when they hear “pussy.” The other two will be avid tumblr users who saw a text post once and are trying to convince themselves that whatever comes out of their mouth is non-offensive because of an “official etymology” rather than the most obvious modern day definition.

White women (and a lot of non-Black WOC) would be better off recognizing that the only reason they get so offended when hearing “Black is beautiful” is because their entire self-image is built around being to epitome of beauty (and thus womanhood).
You are literally built up as the epitome of beauty/womanhood while Black women are positioned as the antithesis of it. To hear the group you believe (and most often this belief is subconscious) to be the antithesis of beauty, actually claim ourselves as beautiful (and thus worthy of love, respect, humanity) is shattering to your very fragile egos.
That’s why y’all stay in folks inboxes (on anon no less) talking about “we’re all beautiful.” But I don’t see you protesting Calvin Klien or anyone else in the fashion/modeling/makeup industry for more inclusivity of Black and Brown women. But we all beautiful, right?
