Reply to "Would Black women choose, date, or marry a brother who perms or straightens his hair?"

The reason that a sister won't date or marry a brother with a perm is because there is a presumption that he is effemanate or is gay. I certainly know that's what I'm thinking when I see a brother with chemicals in his hair.
I agree.....

I've had a natural for 6 years now and I love it. However, I don't get much play from the brothers. That's ok. Even before I let my hair go back to its natural state more West Indian and African men were attracted to me than African-American men. This hasn't changed since I changed my hair.

That's funny... (as in unusual)....

I received more attention from African men when I wore a perm..... (perhaps because westernized versions of beauty are becoming more and more entrenched in the culture...)

I've received more attention from African-American men and Indian men since I've been natural....

I always get asked where I'm from..... it seems that men prefer an exotic look... or at least that's my experience....


Peace,
Virtue
