Okay, so I’m tired of the egotistical hypocrisy powered by male dominance. I read several articles trying to explain to women how to reach an orgasm. They kept reiterating that the clitoris functions like a penis and swells and extends like a penis. They stated the clitoris has over 80,000 nerve endings like a penis and the labia is similar in structure to the scrotum sac, just like a penis. They were trying to convince women that their clitoris was just as powerful as the male penis. My problem with

As a psychology major I have studied transgenders and gender identity disorders. I just read WebMD and although it is probably not the most credible source of information, I did find it informative. Being transgender is synonymous with gender dysphoria. However, it should be noted that gender dysphoria is not a mental disorder and is instead discomfort related to one’s strong desire to be and look like the opposite sex of their biological genitals to an extreme that it creates distress, depression and anxiety. I’m just going to leave that

True Love

I’m starting to understand what true love really means. It’s an involuntary act of genuine concern. When you love someone, you are in love with their entire being. You care about their feelings, their level of contentment, their state of happiness, their personal well-being, their endeavors, ambitions, goals and desires. You are attracted to their very essence of life. You are compassionate towards them and consider them when making decisions. They have the ability to alter your behaviors because of how much you care about them. You are influenced by

When I was younger I thought integration was the perfect solution for racism. Now as an adult I realize it was probably the worst thing to ever happen to African Americans. I understand the concept of equality and having basic rights to live like a normal human being, like drinking out of a water fountain and having the right to vote, but these human rights are drastically different from identity and culture. In my opinion, the lack of identity and culture is precisely what is wrong with Black folks. Many

Although I’m a social media junkie, I consider myself a hybrid.  I still call and interact with my friends in real life just as much as I do on social media.  I joined facebook when it was first introduced to my college campus back in 2003.  I have always used it as a communication tool, but now it seems to be a way of life.  Even when you get annoyed with facebook and threaten to deactivate your page, you feel like you are going to miss out on something.  The

This topic has been on my mind for years, but it really hit me in a different light when I saw Rihanna’s dress at the CFDA awards in 2014. My initial thoughts were quite common like why do us women feel the need to be nude and naked to sell ourselves? Why do we feel the need to expose the most intimate parts of our bodies for a fashion statement? I thought about the example we were leaving for our young women and then a very human thought dominated all

My friend tagged me to this post and I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I read it. But after reading it the first thing that came to mind is that marriage is not for the individual, it is for the partner. I think too many people feel that they will be fulfilled when they finally marry and unfortunately those are selfish reasons. If you are not already happy, content, satisfied and financially savvy by yourself, no one else will ever be able to provide that because they come

I stumbled across an interesting article on Facebook titled, “Undecided? 5 Reasons Why Going Natural is a BAD IDEA!” I have been wanting to write a blog on natural hair for a very long time but wasn’t sure how to present it in a neutral manner. I didn’t want to make any woman feel bad or guilty for her hair decisions and simply wanted to empower women to be natural. This article gave me the perfect platform to present my case. Now, I realize people are entitled to their opinions,

While writing the precursor to this blog I realized my perspective is quite skewed. I guess it makes sense that I present things from a female’s POV (point of view) considering I am a female. Being around men reminds me of just how different men and women are and how much we will never fully understand each other which honestly is what keeps us intrigued by one another. However, I want to be very careful that my biased perspective is not intended to tear down women or single mothers by

Why not?! I truly believe natural black women have taken this stance way too far! When I hear black women with this attitude, I don’t feel like they are preserving their blackness, instead they are making it appear that their hair is better than someone else’s. What makes your hair more untouchable than the next persons? People want to touch you hair because they like it or really just like hair. Me, myself am a hair fanatic! To the freaking core, do you hear me! I love hair, all kinds
