Baseball, Dating, and Future: Dear future wife, it is okay to be strong and independent and be vulnerable at the same time. FB/IG:@Blackcitygirl So what if a man falls in love with what he does and gives to a woman?! How does THAT affect everyday life for you, a single woman busy dating yourself and paying your own bills, what men do is none of your business right? Wrong. You see a lot of women have become so independent that when MEN offer to GIVE and DO for them they dismiss their offers, as if all men have an ulterior motive. For instance in the work place, she'll be carrying something heavy and he'll ask "do you need help?" she'll quickly say "no I'm fine" or he'll offer to open the door and she'll say "hey I can open my own doors" what this translates to him is "STAY AWAY FROM ME" whereas in your mind you're just showing how capable you are as a woman. Add to the fact sometimes you're tired and stressed and have on your screw face 😑I'm totally guilty of this btw so a few weeks ago no word of a lie, I decided to do an experiment, every time a guy offered to help I showed him a smile and instead of snapping I said "yeah sure thanks" let me tell you ladies the results have been ASTOUNDING in one month 1. I was carrying like 5 grocery bags on my way home, wearing no make up and a baseball cap and it was raining and a guy asked if I needed help w- my bags, normally I'd roll my eyes and think "he just thirsty" but I accepted and once he'd dropped off my bags he said "I've never done this before" 2. I got into an argument in a cheap hardware store over my headphones and a random guy intervened on my behalf, normally I'd have "given him the side eye" but I smiled and said thank you and he bought me a new pair of headphones 3. After smiling and getting into a convo with an older man one lunchtime, mid way through our convo he asked "what do you wanna eat I'll get you" I was floored!!! None of the guys above asked for my number! Nope there was no cleavage bearing "wink wink" sexually suggestive behavior, this was straight me being a warm and friendly version of myself. As strong and educated as you maybe it pays to be VULNERABLE in the presence of men. You may not need help and that man may not be your future husband but being open to men giving and doing for you starts in your SINGLE SEASON. Blackcitygirl

Apparently, Complex, and Doctor: why l support body positivity (featuring Purple Bikini Girl fro my Bikini Body lustration) Wonderful series by @asurelle Β· There's a lot of confusion around what "body positivity" or "fat positivity" means and represents. It doesn't mean "everyone should eat unhealthy food and never exercise." It means "hey, you should love yourself and your body, and if you want to alter your lifestyle to change how you look, that's cool (and if not that's also cool!) but you shouldn't hate yourself in the meantime." This is not a complex concept, but the idea of a person not hating themselves when they have fat (gasp!!) is apparently a very horrifying concept for some people. Body positivity is all about loving yourself and taking care of your body. It's not your place to judge other people's lifestyles or assume that the amount of fat they have means they're lazy - unhealthy - etc. You can be skinny and have an eating disorder, you can be skinny and just have a great metabolism but be eating fast food every meal. You cannot make assumptions about a person's health from their weight. And even if you could, unless you're their doctor, then it's none of your business. When a person is saying they love their body and you think they're overweight, you're saying that they need to HATE their body until they lose 20 pounds. That is the kind of thinking ("I hate myself") that leads to eating disorders, overexercising, obsession with appearance, mental health problems, and more. It's so unsolicited and inappropriate to look at someone's weight and make all these assumptions about their lifestyle and tell them they should hate themselves. It is possible to love your body but also want to eat healthier! Or love your body but want to lose weight - bulk up - etc. Fat people are shamed so much for just living their lives, when really everyone just needs to focus on themselves and move on. Don't pretend you're concerned about healthy food when you judge fat people who eat at McDonald's but not skinny people. Don't act like you care about fitness when youre only demanding that *some* people must exercise and work out.

Dad, Family, and God: THE PAKISTANIMAR HASTEWART Your MCM thinks you should be fasting even while you're on your period. I promise to you, all jokes aside. I'm not making this up. But you know what? I don't blame males who think this or the ignorant ones who think they catch you red-handed on the days you're not fasting. Then you have that awkward altercation in which he refuses to leave until he gets the reason why you're not fasting. You come up with a million reasons, but when you realize he's not leaving you irritably tell him your menstruating. He grimaces and walks away and pretends he never wanted to ask. Yeah we've all had that confrontation. I wonder why my mom always made me go to my room to eat, why I would lie to my dad and male family members "Yeah I'm fasting". I mean they had wives, sisters and other female members in their life that menstruated right? Wasn't it obvious why I wasn't fasting? Why did I have to leap through several hoops to make sure I didn't get caught eating. It's natural, my body was made this way, there's a reason I was given a perfectly legitimate excuse to not fast by god, so why try to censor it like it's a sin to even speak it? It's because of this censorship, that most men grow up completely clueless on this knowledge and the etiquettes of talking about women and their menstruation and how it affects them not praying or fasting during it. Also a newsflash, even though we get those few vacation days during Ramadan, we have to make them up. So no, I'm not lucky. No I don't get an easy break. I have to make up for the days I didn't fast. So think twice before asking a girl why she isn't fasting, and even if you do catch her eating or not praying, just move on. Quite honestly it's none of your business to ask anyone why they aren't fasting. Perhaps there is a health reason? Perhaps they aren't religious? Perhaps they fast some days and perhaps they don't want to? Whatever the case, this was just a three second lesson for those who honestly didn't know, or knew and didn't realize we have to make those days up. So try to make the second half of Ramadan less awkward, for all of us πŸ˜‚ Post inspired by @iamhamdaawan experiences πŸ˜‚and @binti.period
