It is just one of the many facets of being a girl. A privilege the male gender doesn’t get to enjoy due to the rigid criteria of being masculine in western societies. A little girl can aspire to be beautiful and the object of a young prince’s desire to a medical doctor (Doc McStuffin). I see no conflict.
As a young girl growing up on military bases I enjoyed these many facets. Many times my female friends and I played dressed up and pretended to be princess. It wasn’t too much later that our male friends knocked on the door to invite us to climb trees with them which we gladly obliged shedding our princess wardrobe.. I also played a mean game of marbles and was a formidable foe to any who challenged me.
Still to this day I enjoy crawling on my belly in red clay to go caving in the Ozarks to dressing up to impress the male gender. That’s just me.

I finally bought a white pair of jeans. Just $19 at Old Navy. I'm thinking a red stripped shirt would really rock with the jeans.

I just bought that tee a few weeks ago at Target. It's definitely a wardrobe staple and quite versatile. Oh Tanisha though I'm into vintage, please note I appreciate sporty as well. In my case it's more sporty is more practical.
Reading this article and comments has given more incentive to eat healthy and exercise. I in no way want to be burden to my daughtes in my latter years. Much love and prayers to those of you who are now or will soon be a caregiver to a family member.

Wow as I increase my increments each day I can really feel the burn. This is good. righ? I did 110 squats this morning and was breathing heavily afterwards. I know it's good to give the ole heart a workout, however, I may have to do a set of squats in the morning and then the rest in the evening.

White men are stealing all the Black women that Black men want.”
I didn't realize black women were the property of black men.Who is even saying these black women want to date black men. As if! ( valley girl's voice)
These particular black men are playing a pissing game with white men in their heads. I doubt Mr. Anti-Everything had anything negative to say about all the black men "stealing" white women. These black men feel they are winning some type of game by dating and marrying the white's man prize possession (white women). But when the prize "possession" is a black woman, they cry "foul" and want to change the rules of the game. Now black women should suddenly be available for their choosing and happy be about.
Black women who choose to date non-black men realize they have options just like everyone else and Mr. Anti-Everything and his ilk need to get over their narcisstist, nefarious,and hypocritical attitudes
I'm so excited that publishers are giving black women a "voice" to express the many options we have including dating.

Many women and men because of these experiences then make a conscious choice to love OTHER.
THIS! Love is a choice not something that just happens as Hollywood would have us to believe.

I guess once interracial relationships are viewed as the norm, then such articles (and beliefs) will become obsolete.

The catagories also can be fodder to those who are against interracial marrage and believe there is a pathological reason to those of us who do seek to date and marry interracially.

I fall under several of these but I don't think it is by choce but maybe default. I'm somewhat of an Outcast because I grew up around whites and have adoped most of their norms. When I married I moved into a predominately black neighborhood and soon realized that many of the beliefs and norms were "unique" to how I had been raised. It was and has been diffiuclt to fit in with my own race.
Now I am an Adventurer. I am seeking to datie and marry a white man because I need to release the "white girl" in me. I love to go skiing, swimming, caving, canoing and want to experience parasailing. I have expressed wanting to parasail and skydive on my Facebook page. From my white friends I get "wow that's cool" or "you are going to enjoy that, we did" From my black friends "better you than me" or "really?"
I don't fault my black friends, they just have never been exposed to anything outside the so-called black collective mindset. New adventures to them is "acting white" or "for white people."They show no signs of exploring beyond their quaint neighborhood or family.
I just left hair shop and the stylist and patrons were buzzing about Scandal. I know the show is popular with the Beyond Black & White community, I just didn't realize the magnitude of the show 's popularity globally.

I used to back in the day too, only I had two afro puffs to complement the outfit. The white guys in my junior high class used to up behind me and pretend they were the handles to motorcycles making that annoying reviving sound.
