A study in the Washington Post says that women have better verbal skills than men. I just want to say to the authors of that study: ‘Duh.’
I just like to have words that describe things correctly. Now to me, ‘black feminist’ does not do that. I need a word that is organic, that really comes out of the culture, that really expresses the spirit that we see in black women. And it’s just… womanish.
Some men have a silly theory about beautiful women – that somewhere along the line they’ll turn into a monster. That movie gave them a chance to watch it happen.
From sixteen to twenty, all women, kept in humor by their hopes and by their attractions, appear to be good-natured.
