“Having a flat belly. I’ve been insecure about my belly for 15 years, when it was slender, when it was flabby, when it was postpartum, when it had stretch marks, and honestly, I just want to be able to exist without going insane because it’s not flat.”

“From a black woman’s perspective: Our hair. It’s never good enough for anyone. If we grow it precisely how it grows out of our scalp, that’s wrong. 

If we say okay, let me braid it, that’s also wrong. I’ll cover it with a wig; that’s also wrong. If we straighten it, that’s wrong. Everything is wrong, no matter where it comes from, fellow black people or other people.”

“Women’s shoes. Our dressy shoes are high heels with no support. They’re uncomfortable, and they are hell on the knees and spine alignment. Men’s dress shoes are flat soles with wide-toe boxes. 

We cram our feet into too tiny and pointy shoes. I quit wearing these shoes, but it makes me sad. I liked the way they looked, but the price was too high. Women have so many back and feet problems wearing them.”

“Perfect eyebrows. It seems nearly impossible without going to a salon, but people act like it’s so important. It’s hair. As long as the eyebrow doesn’t trap small insects within the hair for food, it shouldn’t matter.”

“Double standards. I would never make a derogatory comment about a woman’s figure, but I’ve had offensive comments made about mine in the workplace, and it was treated as just a joke.”
