Ok. So today I was talking to my girlfriends about wanting to dye my hair like a honey blonde or maybe red. Now, none of my girlfriends are black lol but one of them says “you won’t be natural anymore if you dye your hair”. I said “yes I will.” and she said “No. You won’t.” Which at that point started to irritate me for some reason. I explained to her how I see it - how most of us naturals see it. I said “being natural is wearing your natural texture. It would be different if I said I was relaxing my hair but I’m just changing the color” and she just wasn’t understanding and it was really pissing me off because she kept insisting I wasn’t going to be natural if I dyed my hair. Am I being too quick to anger over this? I’m trying to understand that she doesn’t even know anything about it (even though she has half black siblings with natural hair) (and HER hair is dyed too so I wanted to read her ass just based off of that but I resisted lol) but she ended the convo on “I guessssss” which almost had me slapping her into next Tuesday. Like idk. She was so smug about this conversation. Like she knew it all and in my head all I could think was “i know this white bitch ain’t trying to tell me about MY damn hair!” I needed to woooooosssssaaawwwwww and vent somewhere and we have a lot of natural followers on here so I figured this would be the best place lol
Thanks! I mean, I really thought it was obvious that I was joking lmao. But yeah, well…can’t please everybody lol
Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.
People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.
- Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
- Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
- Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist
- She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
- Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage
Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore….
Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.
How are you guys forgetting Susie? I mean her mom was a doctor and her dad was a writer for a famous Children’s TV show. Not to mention Kimmie was anything BUT submissive.
Remember when they had episodes that hit hard to issues kids might be dealing with? Chuckie only had his Dad on Mothers Day, Tommy had to deal with being outshadowed by a new baby brother, Phil and Lil were constantly being mixed up and then they had a couple episodes where they each found that even as a twin they were their own people.
Man Rugrats was the shit.
if she like jhene haiku
