In the wake of the suspension of Tomi Lahren due to her appearance on The View, Friday, March 17, 2017, where she admits to being “Pro-Choice” as an extremely Right-Wing Republican (which is a HUGE no-no), I began to analyze my own political views and concepts of femininity through the lens of a former battered women, feminist, and Black Millennial Woman.

Modern Girl Monday: Unwritten Rules of Undies

Hey GIT Girls! Modern Girl Monday: Unwritten Rules of Undies is here. I recently stumbled upon a NYLON article entitled, “How to Wear Underwear Like A Grown-Up,” and it most definitely got me thinking, contemplating, and FREAKING out. Apparently, I, my friends and plenty of other newfound adulting women are DOING. IT. WRONG.!!!!

While we’re busy figuring out what to buy in order to present ourselves publicly…

Sex Health Saturday: Body Positivity – What Does It Mean to You?

Hey GIT Girls! Sex Health Saturday: Body Positivity: What Does It Mean to You? is here! The idea is based on self-love, acceptance, and empowering others to feel comfortable in their own bodies. However, this can get skewed in the mainstream media, and especially in marketing techniques. There is this perception that one must feel or look a certain way in order to be body positive – or, it’s simply an excuse to be lazy and not better yourself. Sex Health Saturday – Body Positivity: What Does It Mean to…

Modern Girl Monday: HOTEP

Hey GIT Girls! Modern Girl Monday: HOTEP is here! Modern Girl Monday: HOTEP FAKE NEWS has become an epidemic in America and, unfortunately, misinformation trickles down and has even more regrettably become an infectious disease in the Black Community. In light of the disbursement of “Alternative Facts,” I’d like to address knowledge vs fake knowledge, i.e. stupidity, in relation to the HOTEP brethren and their evolution from their FUCKBOI predecessors.  See, the HOTEP bruh is a whole different type of fuckboi.

Hey GIT Girls! Modern Girl Monday: Blackface – Notes On the Blacklist is here.

The Vision by Boogie Breezy

The Vision by Boogie Breezy

Hey GIT Girls! Over the past few years, I’ve noticed a surge in vision board making. From inexpensive to ridiculously overpriced workshops, seminars and themed outings – the vision board has increasingly become a part of the “lifestyle branding” that so many of us crave.   Personally, I have been pretty skeptical in regards to the purpose of a vision board. I do understand the importance of goal setting and I try to make a habit of keeping/achieving small goals/aspirations, but I just have a hard time hopping on the…
