too comfortable in your own body
taking up too much space
The short of it? LIES
The truth, though, your beauty is undeniable. That’s where the too’s come in. We’ve been denied the right to be because the others fear what cannot be boxed and labeled to their standard of comfort.
Black woman, you are perfect.
Black woman, you are the closest fleshly definition of perfection. And Black man, you are right there beside us.
