A Twitter thread sparked debate over the weekend. A Twitter user suggested women should raise families together — even if you’re not “attracted” to other women.
“Women, even if you’re not “attracted” to other women, I promise it’s worth it to take a moment and deconstruct the standards of “family” / consider co-parenting with your friends, look up compound living, etc. we really can imagine and implement a new way of life.”
Her followers noted Black women have raised their children with sisters, aunts, mothers and grandmothers.
The Black community is worse off as a result of the plethora of female-headed households.
It seems pointless to encourage more female-headed households.
What we’re doing so far isn’t working for us.
