A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

So my last perm was in January - since then I’ve been relaxer free, transitioning to natural. Obviously, this has forced me to RElearn how to do my hair and figure out all these styles that work as I wait to chop off my relaxed ends.

But because of this, everytime I change environments [from college, to home, back to college and now back home again] I have to brace myself for constant “your hair looks different!” “why does it do that?” “why isn’t it straight anymore?” “can I touch it??” “are you still not straightening your hair?” “where’s your flat iron??!

I still have a week and a half till break to prepare myself.
