The other day, when I was scrolling through my Twitter timeline, I came across a thread by Feminista Jones in response to “Patriarchy’s Princess”, Ayesha Curry (you can read the thread here). Ayesha had been effectively shaming women who dress in a way that shows more skin, because she likes to keep her body covered for her man.

On the drive to Sun City from Johannesburg, you usually have to stop at this one flea market on the way. It’s very hard to miss, and it’s definitely a huge tourist trap. For a long stretch of road, there’s African clothing markets, trinket shops, restaurants and fruit stalls on the side of the road, and when I went a few weeks ago with my family and saw the beaded Zulu necklaces, I was glad to finally find a place where I could get one!
