I don’t ever, ever, ever try to convey me having it all together because I f*ck up all the time. I’m definitely as flawed as they come. I think me putting myself out there as some role model would be completely a false misrepresentation because you don’t see when somebody pops off to me and I pop off and I’m like, ‘That was so [not] mature, bring it down.’ It’s always a work in progress but I really, really do consider myself a student of the world and I’m always asking a bunch of questions to people who seem to have it even 10 percent together.
WOMANISM. Oh and realize she was speaking of structural power’s impact on gendered abuse which is disproportionately men abusing women. So this song is not the place for "but women and people who aren’t men say ‘bitch’ tooooo." Spare me. Context. The song is on domestic violence, street harassment etc. And the song was about Black life. It can be about Black life without "so, no one else abuses?" hyperbole being inferred, as it’s obvious that’s not true.
I know some folks don’t like context but I am here for it.
"Until you do right by me…"
