Episode's 2017 Diversity Standards


#219

People VERY seldom like something if they’re always covering it up. That’s just the truth.


#220

Do you know what weave does to your hair? It protects it. Clearly you don’t understand what weave does at all, so please do not call out people if they wear weave they cannot be Natural hair positive. And covering? I cover myself all the time and I am still body positive. Every body should be appreciated. But you can support that and cover yourself. Again, your point doesn’t make that much sense.


#222

Every body should NOT be appreciated.


#223

Cut that crap out.
We exsist wether u like it or not this is NOT some trend or game or joke. We just want wellmade stories with ppl who look like us. Stop stirring the pot. And no POC dont hate white ppl u are misunderstanding. We want race representation.


#224

Which I don’t understand at all.


#225

We can wear weave and wigs but still be natural hair positive. Weave protects hair. It’s not hard to understand, your just making it hard to do so


#226

I’m not against it, at all. I’m just saying, people wear weaves/wigs, but then are talking about natural hair positivity. I’m natural hair positive, too.


#227

And I’m saying you can do both. I do both. Wearing them doesn’t dismiss you from being positive about Natural hair. It matters if you take care of it, which we do.


#228

People have different preferences for themselves. For example, although I shave/wax my armpits, doesn’t mean I’m not “body hair positive” (if that’s what you would even call it). If they don’t wanna shave, good on them! I’ll still “support” that even though I don’t do it myself.


#229

:ok_hand:t5: :clap:t5:


#230

I understand that. I do. If I offended you, I apologize.


#231

I don’t want to get into who should use what or wear their hair in which way. But there are ways to discuss things without being mean and dismissive. And even if you agree with someone else’s opinion, be sure that they are expressing it in a respectful way before whole heartedly approving their statement.
Let’s be kind to each other.


#232

I’m not judging that. If a girl wants to not shave off her hair, cool. If she wants to do so, cool. I’m not gonna punch someone for that.


#233

I can never say, correct, or address anyone without being deemed as rude or mean. Smh :woman_facepalming:t5:


#234

I’m not sure you get what I mean. I was comparing wearing weaves/wigs and preaching natural hair positivity to shaving and preaching body hair positivity to make it more understandable. The message I was trying to convey was that it’s up to the individual on what they want to do with their own hair. They can do whatever with their own hair and still support what someone else chooses to do with theirs, even if it’s different. I wasn’t actually bringing up the issue of body hair lol


#235

Oops, sorry! But yeah, I get what you mean. And I totally agree :slight_smile:


#236

A reminder. Please ONLY flag post’s that violate the forum rules. Excessively flagging posts that do not break the rules will no longer be tolerated and will be handled on a case to case basis. Thanks all.


#237

Thank you for the info.


#240

What don’t you understand?


#241

What are you talking about? All I see is you throwing a tantrum.
I know what I’m talking about, you don’t seem to know the reality of the issue.
