I’ve been going to Yehia for basically ever—through perms, two big chops, keratin, coloring my first grays to going back to my natural curls.

I don’t work at Jezebel and despite being under the same general media company umbrella, don’t feel compelled to align my reporting with theirs. But to be clear: in the article above, I referred to the Mail as a tabloid, not the Times.

If you’re the first black woman to do it (which adds a whole other element of danger), I suppose you should alert ABC News, since that’s Nabongo’s claim to fame.

That’s a very good question, and perhaps a bit of both, though the character in question was definitely a main character (if not the main character, though she’s often rendered silent).

Fair—although Hypebeast did call it a collaboration, and I’ve worked in fashion since the ‘90s. As I wrote, it’s still unclear how much influence he had on the collection, but perhaps the collab in question is the cross-promotional agreement.

Ohhhh...I didn’t realize you were commenting from Asia. That makes a lot of sense, because they’ve definitely sized up those styles for the American market (case in point, the gang of animal-printed styles I got this sprint In extended sizes).

I’d be inclined to agree with you (and do on American Apparel), but Forever 21 actually has a fairly extensive and well-marketed plus-sized range (including window displays). In fact, I know several plus-sized women disappointed by this news, because Forever 21 has long been their go-to.

First of all, this is about how women are self-reporting their own first sexual encounters, so your statutory rape angle is irrelevant if they are saying those encounters were non-consensual.
