The other day I was talking to my mom, blabbering on and on about how oppressive/abusive our culture is. She was mostly agreeing and uh-huhing at appropriate times, so I got the impression she was just letting me vent. I finally stopped and was like, “anyway mother, I won’t bore you anymore with my womanist rants.” To which she responded, “you have no idea how much I have learned and realized everytime you talk to me about these things. In some ways it’s been healing.”
That made me so happy.

When I saw this article from takepart about Black &SexyTv I got really excited, because their show are the TRUTH! And I wish some of them would make it on tv. These show are everything B.E.T needs.
Black and Sexy TV was founded by four filmmakers—Numa Perrier, Dennis Dortch, Jeanine Daniels, and Brian Ali-Harding—in 2011 and takes its name from Dortch’s 2008 feature, A Good Day to Be Black and Sexy, which showed at the Sundance Film Festival. Though the channel began with just one program, it has grown to include six: The Couple, Hello Cupid, That Guy, Roomieloverfriends, The Number, andYellow. The series are each distinct but are grounded by a through line of authentic black experience, especially regarding love and sex.
Here’s a list of show from YouTube not all from Black&SexyTv you should check out when you got time.
The Misadventure of Awkward Black Girl
Dear Future Wife
Brothers With No Game
The Unwritten Rules

TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom.
Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.
