Is it easier to have a personal season of change if you are a part of a particular demographic? For some folks, it would be easy to read this article and scoff at the notion that Black women have it harder than any other group of women when it comes to being soft (sending so much love to butch lesbians), but there is truth in the thought that sometimes, women can't be *just* women. If you're too "soft", you're playing into gender roles. If you're too "hard", you're a stereotypical black woman/lesbian/tomboy/etc. Where is the medium? When do we stop caring how other people present? How do trending seasons of change effect the way in which certain demographics are able to process generational trauma?
