The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness.
Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.

aro!clint is actually a p serious headcanon for me. everyone’s always telling him he sucks at relationships and pushes people away, he has a girlfriend in the fraction comics but she isn’t really featured and it feels like it’s a relationship he’s confused about and isn’t sure what to do with, he’s not sure how to define how he feels about his ex-wife, and the most profound and comfortable relationship that he has (though of course it has its ups and downs too) is his completely non-romantic relationship with kate
it just, it feels like a portion of clint’s relationship disasters are because people expect something of him that he doesn’t understand or feel capable of giving/feeling, but he feels like he’s a failure if he doesn’t give or feel it, you know? he doesn’t feel like he’s allowed to say “this isn’t what i want” and so he tries to fake it and fucks up and ends up alienating people
and in my headcanon world clint realizes this, maybe with some help from kate or natasha or bobbi, and starts getting more okay with saying, “hey, friendships are really special to me and sex is cool sometimes with certain people but romance isn’t something i do” and he surrounds himself with people who understand that
one christmas kate gets him an arrow with the aromantic flag on the end and they call it the “aro arrow” and hang it over the mantle
aro!clint surrounded by people who love him and who he loves and who still get mad at him because clint’s kind of a train wreck regardless of whether or not romance is involved
I was so nervous talking to a man that I have admired for twelve years of my life. The man who let me know as a child that miserable things happen and that’s perfectly normal. The same man who helped me overcome my fear of reading after being screamed at by my teacher that I would never be able to read anything my grade level, only to have a college level reading skill by the end of sixth grade. My motivation to write and keep doing whatever I want because no matter who tries to bring me down, I know that I can overcome it just like I did those years ago.
I blushed and stuttered, barely getting out a ‘this may sound dorky, but thank you for everything you’ve done for me’. I hadn’t told him the tragedies that had gone on in my life in specifics. I thanked him for giving me a chance when so many adults did not and how I found it ironic that I still love a series about miserable children when I practically went through the same thing. And even though I’ve heard ‘I’m sorry’ so many times about every death, every terrible thing that has happened, I have never heard one so sincere.
Here I was beating myself up about failing to convey myself in front of this wonderful man. How I missed my chance. Putting my things away, I grabbed my book and peeked inside to see this. And I began to cry.
This is a man who I have never met before. A man I have only dreamt of meeting since I was very small. But yet in one small sentence he has managed to move me entirely. A sentence that has needed to be said for a long time now.
‘To Bridget, who has suffered enough.’
