We don’t need to replace our history with myths to validate ourselves and our cultures. Keep it real.

This is literally why I get super annoyed with all those ridiculous ancient egypt memes like pls shut the fuck up and stop using dead people in your bs respectability politics

She just forgot to add Northern Sudan as home to Nubians in addition to southern Egypt. Also Nubians still exist to this day as a distinct linguistic and cultural group, so it’s more appropriate to speak of us as contemporary, living and breathing people facing the same modern human condition, rather than just reduce us to this absurdly mythologized existence. Sure we have this great and often overlooked history but TODAY our communities struggle with poverty, racism, land thefts, marginalization, political instability. But they also go on living just like everybody else. Africa’s history is more than just ancient Egypt and Nubia. There’s Axum, the kingdoms of Mali, the Funj Sultunates in what is now Darfur, the various Amazigh kingdoms and dynasties of North Africa, the Yoruba, Hausa and Ibo states, empire of Songhai, empire of Ashanti to mention a few .

SEE THE THING IS, he said, BIG GIRLS LEAVE MORE SPACE FOR ME TO GRAB AHOLD OF
but
i’m not your handlebars

SEE THE THING IS, she said, BIG GIRLS ARE BETTER THAN SKINNY ONES BECAUSE MEN DON’T LIKE BONES
but
other girls are not graveyards

SEE THE THING IS
a baby girl isn’t beautiful because somebody is gonna hold her
i mean we all wanna be loved but i want her to
love herself
first

a baby girl isn’t beautiful because a man’s fingertips can dig
bruises into her hips, she’s beautiful because
she just is

in nature we don’t say a flower is beautiful
when somebody wants to pick it

in fact we say that nature’s beauty is at the height of purity
when it would destroy you to even touch it

SEE THE THING IS
i would rather be an ocean of danger and deep black and
thick mermaid thighs rather than
a body you want to cruise across
i would rather be the night sky and crush ribs with a suffocating sense that we are all small and purposeless
rather than a landscape of freckles someone happens to think
are akin to constellations
i would rather be storms and lightning and a bright sun rising, i
would rather make you quake in your boots than get your heart
pounding,

i would rather be beautiful like a cold spring stream:
not beautiful because you said so
but beautiful because
i am me.

Don’t really wanna be your girl? Just wanna belong to me? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ /// r.i.d (via inkskinned)  (via marfmellow)
