- Twitter users are debating a controversial topic
- Some people have suggested that black women need to become more feminine
- However, many black women strongly dispute this
Twitter users are sharing their views on whether or not black women need to become more "feminine."
Most black women on Twitter strongly dispute the notion that they need to prove their feminine nature, Briefly.co.za gathered.
A pro-black womanist, Bella Goth, referred to this notion as "misogynoiristic, cringeworthy, and annoying."
In subsequent tweets, she explained that black women are not "robots" and that they have to keep a balance between femininity and masculinity.
Bella also expressed pride that throughout history, black women have always been strong, brave, and fearless.
Another Twitter user, Ashia Monet, pointed out that black women are rarely cast as "pretty" characters in films.
Another commenter said contrary to the popular view, black women are the "softest, kindest women."
Bella further explained that black women are worthy of love, respect, and protection regardless of whether they are in touch with the masculinity or not.
Finally, one commenter thought that black women sometimes show their masculine side as a protective mechanism.
