This bitch was checking in with my LiveJournal people (love y'all like crushed ice on a hot summer day!!) when I stumbled upon a post linking to this fucked up shit.
My Afro is a corporate fashion don't?
Because a fashion editor from Glamour magazine said so?
Oh, hell no!
They also say that the diner orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally was embarrassing, so obviously they don't know shit.
Confession - a bitch doesn't read Glamour. I find that it doesn't speak to me, so my ass would have completely missed this shit if a certain LiveJournal diva hadn't picked it up from Jezebel.com.
My favorite bit was the connection between natural black hair and "political hairstyles".
I fucking love that!
Hell yes, my hair is political. But I can personally testify that straightening my hair back in the day only earned this bitch a sore scalp and an empty pocketbook (wince).
But hey, now I'll have something to dish about with the sistahs tomorrow night at the natural...make that "political"...hair shop.
A bitch plans to add a touch of color to my anti-corporate political statement after a trim and deep conditioning...
