But I think boxing people out who are your advocates and who you are like-minded with is not the way to go.Her argument about the various stigmas associated with different types of natural hair. The Philippine Culture is a mixture based on ancient aboriginal tribes, 500 years of Spanish colonisation, 50’s America and the 80’s disco era. Spain brought the Catholic faith to the Philippines in the 1500’s.
Conversely, Asian men are viewed as “soft” or “feminine” by other racial groups. The masculine stereotype attributed to black people benefits black men when it comes to interracial dating, and one can suggest the data supports this.
Back in the day this would have really upset me and resulted in a long, apologetic and sad post.
But I’m looking for acceptance anymore so I instead, decided to share what this commenter had to say on us referring to mixed hair as natural.
A study released by Columbia Business School revealed that race is often assigned a gender along a spectrum.
Black people are viewed as “masculine,” regardless of whether the subject is male or female, and Asian people as a whole are viewed as “feminine.” Within the heterosexual dating market, men tend to prefer women who personify the feminine ideal while women prefer men who embody masculinity.
Galinsky showed that men are more attracted to Asian women relative to black women, while women are more attracted to black men relative to Asian men.
Even more interesting, the more a man valued femininity the more likely he was attracted to an Asian women and the less likely he was attracted to an black women.
Read my post THE REASON WHY I AM STATING THIS CLAIM IS..
FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU WERE TO WALK INTO A SOCIAL EVENT, OR INTO PUBLIC WITH YOUR HAIR NOT CHEMICALLY OR HEAT STRAIGHTENED, IT WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED STRANGE, AKWARD, OR GROSS.
BUT IF A WOMAN WITH KINKY TYPE 4 HAIR WALKED INTO THAT SAME SITUATION, SOME WOULD CONSIDER HER HAIR TO BE UNATTRACTIVE, TOO KINKY, GROSS, UNPROFESSIONAL, BEING DIFFERENT, OR SOME OTHER NEGATIVE VIEW, ESPECIALLY FROM BRAINWASHED BLACK MEN.
I don’t want to diminish her feelings because they are real and honest.
