the "can I touch it?" thing doesn't just happen with POC. I think it's predominantly a curly hair thing. Old ladies won't stop trying to grope my head.
Ok. But it’s not the same. You cannot ignore the history of black bodies being disrespected and devalued and how that is tied to white supremacy. Well, I guess you can ignore it.
It sucks that people invade your personal space and touch your hair without permission. It’s not the same experience as women with Afro-textured hair. When talking about oppression, false equivalences are disrespectful. How many times does this need to be repeated?
Are you guys for real? It happens to everyone really. I get it all the time and I’m white and have straight hair.
You’re being willfully ignorant and you know it. Please re-read my reply. I didn’t say it doesn’t happen. I said IT’S NOT THE SAME. I can’t with ya’ll.
