Joy, KC the Alchemist and Clo delve into this age-old, tired
trope of the "masculine" Black woman. We are STILL having this
conversation, sometimes without saying a word, in the year of our
Lord and Savior, Black Jesus 2021. Black women are also socialized,
for the most part, to get a job not a
husband. And to be able to provide for ourselves. But we get called
masculine or too hard if we're too independent. Then
conversely, we get called needy or gold diggers if the expectations
of a man are too high. Listen, we may not need a
man but most of us want a man in our lives. We
may or may not need help with the lift, but it sure would be nice!
Let's keep pulling this thread. Men, what's up? Add your two
pennies as well.
