AFRO| QUEER is an online magazine for the Afropolitan Queer Woman. This magazine aims at providing compelling content meant to inspire , inform and invigorate its readers.
The politics of the word “female” and it’s common usage in everyday conversation is something few people take the time to consider deeply. Woman and female are often used interchangeably with little thought or regard the way in which misogyny is embedded in within language.
Men are men. Women are females. This conceptualization reduces women to their anatomy making womanhood something that is bound up in biology- which is both reductive and sexist.
While female is not in and of itself a bad word -the ways we use in everyday language is both cis-sexist & patriarchal.
After all not all females are women and not all males are men and absolutely nobody is just a sack of body parts.

Please give people a moment, just one moment to find quiet. so they may hear their truth. so they may hear your whispers of love in everything, including each other. So they may find their true happiness!
Did you ever wonder if the person in the puddle is real, and you’re just a reflection of her?
