I have heard many people who diss black women say that we are not feminine enough.How is it the way we dress, walk, or talk?What makes us seem unlady like.I've asked many people this question who put us down but they never respond to my post.

I know, I am about as ladylike as they get! I am a Mac make-up, heel wearing, lady that walks w/a switch and talks w/a bit of a southern accent. How lady-like is that?

Honest truth. Black women don't respect the black man's authority. Black women have absolutely no problem listening to their white male boss, but they will continually fight with their black male husbands.

Of course this is a stereotype, but you asked a stereotypical question. Black women continually fight with black men and have the nerve to call this continuous fighting "strength."

Hey Queen. I think it's mainly because of the way how some of AA women have attitudes (which is masculine thing to do) and act like dykes, whereas everything else you mentioned isn't the cause. I also hear how some non-blacks consider dark skinned women masculine looking compared to light skinned and medium skinned and this is what makes you appear unfeminine in the eyes of black men and non-blacks.

How do you know that black women fight with their black male husbands.Have you lived with every black woman to know this?Black women just don't take no crap.Maybe thats why so many white women get abused by their husbands is because their afraid to stand up

If they don't respond to your questionn it's because they have no plausible response.

Sister, you're no less feminine than any other community of women.
But perhaps those men should be queried as to what the hell they mean by "feminine."

Its the attitude thing. Black women are very oppionated. Especially African American and Carribean black women. But African women are taught not to talk in this way to men. But after African women have been corrupted by the sisters they become like the sisters.

Black women tend to be loud, obese, and masculine in dress and appearance. Other races of women tend to be more petite and have pleasant personalities. I’m a black woman but even I have to admit that on average, we are not very feminine.
Also, many black women have harsh features. Big broad noses, huge lips, short nappy hair, dark skin, and a large fat body just aren’t feminine. It’s okay to have some of these features, but all of these features together aren’t cute. All black women do not have these features but many do. We need to lose weight, smile more, and take better care of ourselves in general. Women of other races put more value on physical appearance. I see black women getting their hair and nails done every week but are morbidly obese, dress poorly, loud, and rude. Black women need to work on the total package.
Stop pretending. You know what people are talking about when they say black women aren’t feminine. How often do you see dainty, petite black women with bubbly personalities? Most are obese, loud, and angry.

I have no idea myself, for some strange reason, non-blacks see dark skinned black women as masculine. I hear in some societies, that dark skinned men are considered the manliest of men compared to light skinned men, and I think that this philosophy some how applies to dark skinned black women as well. I've seen some very pretty and feminine looking dark skinned sistas and some masculine looking ones, so I guess ignorance and jealousy explains why non-blacks view dark skinned black women as masculine.

I see this a lot. Black women are much more aggressive than other races of women and coupled with the looks that many of them have (i.e., super dark, bad weaves, harsh features, fat), just isn’t attractive or feminine.

This is exactly what we are talking about. You ask a stereotypical question and got an answer. What is your response?

"Black women just don't take no crap."

Please stop the charade. I've been with enough black women to know that all your "toughness" is nothing more than an illusion.

LOL!

It's ashame, but true.

The bad weaves and fat are the one that really stand out for me as far as looks. I swear I grit my teeth when I see a black chick wearing her "Beyonce" blond hair weave dragging down to her ankles, you look ridiculous.

To me nothing is more sexier than a fit black woman in braids or in some kind of natural hair style.

Yeah say what you wanna say because you haven't been with me and you don't know my personality.Maybe you wouldn't be putting down black women if you didn't keep chasing after the wrong ones but no you want to come up here and bash us by putting us all in the same category.How would you like it if I said all black men are dead beat dads, all do drugs, all black men rob, kill and do other things.You wouldn't like that.Maybe you need a white you woman to tell you about your self
