Don’t Confuse #BlackGirlMagic & Manic Pixie Dream Girl

FACT: Black Women are magic! FACT: Manic Pixie Dream Girls are not. They’re #irritating & deeply problematic. Black women can be eccentric, eclectic, quirky, and flighty (if we want to be), but we do not solely exist to enlighten a man’s purpose or fix his flaws. In this episode, Alana & Jacklyn have a quirktastic convo about why you should never conflate these female labels.
