Twitter, Black Women, and Graduate Education – a place for a dispersed community

DNLee headshot 12

I know about a little over dozen African-American Women with or earning a Ph.D. I count both real life friend and on-line associates. When I list them in a Twitter #FollowFriday list it looks like a lot. (BTW, you should follow @TheNaturalHaven, @DrFayOnline, @Lachelle_Dawn, @LuceliaCherie, @DrRubidium, @astroholbrook, @artfulaction, @alondra, @dr_tindall, @BlackDocs, @CoquiNegra, @artcoholic, @meinhermitage, @katellington).  But it’s [...]

Feministing Friday: Why does the F-word bother some men?

Men who wear big diamond earrings are bitches Tariq Nasheed

That word would be FEMINISM. (click on images to embiggen and read) Late night on Monday, January 14, the day before Dr. Martin Luther the-King Birthday I happened upon a Twitterbeef.

Feministing Friday: Obsessing over my look and what to do with my hair

I'm trying out professional natural hair style options

My relationship with my hair has been tenuous my entire life. Like most little (black) girls of my generation (X) there was much hullabaloo over length, softness and coarseness.  I liked my hair as a child.  It was long, soft, thick and ‘good’ – a ridiculous term to describe the relative curliness, waviness and ease [...]

Feministing Friday: On Marriage & Name changing

Pictures of some version of this tweet have been circulating around the interwebz , greeted with all kinds of co-signs and Amens.  My reaction to it was repulsion. Change my last name? Why would I want that? I can’t tell you how many times this topic comes up among  adults I know.  Whether it be [...]

Feministing Friday: Why Serial Monogamy is bad propaganda for women

Feminsiting Friday is a series of posts dissecting hip-hop and pop culture for its sexist influences and/or portrayals on women and girls. Offering insight as an evolutionary biologist, I promise to be analytical, scathing, and downright snarky.  I began the series at my previous blog, SouthernPlayalisticEvolutionMusic on the Southern Fried Science Network.
