I’M NOT YOUR JEZEBEL!
I’M NOT YOUR PROPERTY!
I’M NOT MEANT TO BE OWNED!
I’M NOT HERE FOR YOUR SATISFACTION!
I’M NOT HERE FOR YOUR APPROVAL!
I’M NOT YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE AT TWO A.M!
As a black woman, my positive attitude towards sex is always conflicting with the “Jezebel myth”. I’m expected to say “yes”to anything involving sex.
SEX. SEX. SEX.
It’s all that seems to roll off the tongues of a culture built on the exploitation, degradation and subjugation of individuals who don’t fit the socially constructed image of white Anglo-Saxon males and women.
Its ok to say “no”, its ok to say “yes”. You are HUMAN. You are not someones property, you are not owned, you are not their to satisfy anyone’s needs, you do not need someone else’s seal of approval. You got your own! And lastly you are no one’s guilty pleasure at 2 A.M. when they cannot find the bright orange cantaloupe they so badly would like to dig their fingers into. You are not a piece of fruit meat to be scraped out and tossed away.
