"I am not an Independent Black Woman"

We as Black women love to profess how independent we are. But are we? No one is truly independent. Everyone needs someone or something. Independence is a myth, a lie, an illusion as far-fetched and unreal as the tooth fairy. We love to prance around and brag about the jobs we have, the cars or the clothes we buy ourselves, all while belittling our men. We make everything a dick swinging competition, then wonder why we’re single. A straight man wants a woman, not a competitor. And don’t even chime in with that “I’m too strong for most men” bull. No one wants to be in constant competition with people that they support and are supposed to support them. 

So I’m not independent. I can’t do this by myself, and quite frankly, I wouldn’t want to.

I’ve never felt so alone. I know there are many people pretending to support me, yet hoping that I fail.

I present the most badass gifset on Tumblr.

Legitimately turned on by this

This is the best thing.

Oh my god

I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.

Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.

Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so fucking cool.

(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best damn Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)
