Jada Pinkett-Smith is aware of the critics that frown up their noses at the way she raises her daughter, Willow. Willow cuts, dyes and styles her hair as she pleases, a fact that bothers many who feel girls shouldn’t have that much control over their appearance at such a young age.
Jada decided to address the criticism in a Facebook post:
“A letter to a friend…This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete. The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.”
I’m pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but seriously this is something we should be teaching all our children. Their bodies are theirs, not ours as parents. As soon as you tell someone their body doesn’t belong to theirs you take away so much from them.
White people in a non Euro centric history class
Well, the boy IS right. White people didn’t collectively decide what to do.
The point is: White people eradicated the Native Americans. Something that is often very much glossed over to an abominable degree. It’s not about blaming ALL white people. It’s about not taking stock and reflecting on the huge atrocities that took place and knowing who was really responsible for them.

Money’s tight. Time to WORK.
- The prices listed are not set in stone. Pieces that are simpler such as busts I could consider adjusting the price for, versus requests that include armor that I would be more inclined to price higher. The more complicated, the more the price will go up. I’ll give you a quote based on what you’d like from me. But I’m flexible!
- I will draw most things. I am not super familiar with NSFW stuff. Case-by-case basis.
- I’m very flexible with style. Please let me know if you have something particular in mind.
- Lineless art is also available. Send me an ask for a quote.
- If something needs answering here, let me know.
First 5 commissions can get one of the bonus options for free! I’ll make sure to note when they’re all taken.
I’m only taking 5 slots for now, with an extra 5 for a waiting list. I can usually do one or two pieces a day depending on my work schedule and how complicated it is. I really appreciate anybody who even considers commissioning me. If you can’t afford it (I know I can’t), reblogs are extremely appreciated! Thanks!
! Buy all the art! :0
If you see something like this, DO NOT CALL AN EXTERMINATOR!
Call a beekeeper, they can relocate the hive instead of killing them. Bees are dying at an alarming rate, please do not contribute to that! They are so important for our ecosystem!
yo fuck this i aint gonna call no beekeeper i’m moving before i’m dead
I’m going to call an exterminator so the exterminator can kill them. I’ll be able to sleep at night knowing that there are less bees in the world.
No bees = no food.
No food = no life.
Congratulations on destroying the world.
Because you seem to not understand that bees pollinate flowers and literally bees are the reason we have food.
Did you guys even watch bee movie
you really really must call a bee keeper!
My family’s house had it’s entire attic taken over by bees one year. They slowly started appearing in the house, and then they were everywhere. We called a bee keeper, and he removed what he said was the largest domestic honeycomb/bee nest he’d ever seen. I was so terrified I’d gone to stay with a friend. My folks called me to meet the bee keeper, and he led me on the most magical journey through the house. He explained the bees were harmless if you move calmly through them and don’t swat at or harass them. He was only stung once because he accidentally put his hand down and smooshed one. The bees landed on me, walked a bit, then buzzed away. All honey combs and bees were safely removed and relocated. Call a bee keeper, they are awesome!
