Aside from being my birthday month (Pisces season, what what), March is also Women’s History month, and an important time to be reminded of how much patriarchy affects almost everything in our society.
In a post on her Instagram account last night, singer, Janelle Monae, re-posted a post originally shared by Transgender Activist, Anastasia JL. You can access her facebook profile HERE. a not-so subtle reminder to men who might see fit to refer to a woman as a “heaux.”
And while the original post was targeted at black men, Janelle Monae made sure to include everybody.
….This also applies to the word “bitch”, “slut”, etc AND is not limited to just black men. #NeverForget#WomensHistoryMonth repost and share

Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
