The Genesis Feminist is a blog devoted to embracing biblical femininity in a post sexual revolution world. As a young black woman in America, I am told I should have certain political views and particular opinions on certain social issues. I tend to not fall into that “should” category and as a result, my blog doesn’t either. I try to not let my demographics define me. I am a Catholic millennial that believes in Franciscan spirituality. That means I am working to live in greater harmony with my fellow man and with God’s creation. Caring for animals, respecting the planet, and loving my body have challenged me to adopt a high protein vegan diet which compliments my spiritual joinery for peace.
It is my belief that authentic femininity is found in our complimenting of the opposite sex, supporting all people (especially the most vulnerable), and being a good steward of our resources. Too often we hear women in the modern “feminist” movement putting men down, rejecting the beautiful gift of life within them, and ignoring some of the most spectacular parts of being a woman. We are dynamic, passionate, fun, loving, kind, supportive, inclusive, bold, strong, compassionate, and nurturing. These are the things that authentic feminism is made of, and these are the things The Genesis Feminist is about.
In my tiny slice of the big bad world of digital media you will find my struggles and triumphs as I attempt to brave the world of womanhood. I invite you along on my life long journey of spirituality, relationships, and service to the people and planet around me. I have a variety of interests and The Genesis Feminist reflects that, you will find everything from faith to fandom, family life to fashion, and most importantly–FOOD. I hope you find something here you enjoy.
And always remember to try and leave the world a little bit better than the way you found it by having a sparkly day!
