What It's Like Being A Black Woman In A Dom/Sub Relationship With A White Man
Black Female Masculinity in Toni Morrison's Sula
It had been over four years since my last relationship, and I was tired of the long stretches without sex. I was worried I didn't know how to be in a relationship any more and that I'd lost my skills in the bedroom. So when I finally activated an OkCupid account in the spring, I didn't expect so many white men to reach out to me or for them to move so quickly into revealing their fetish for black women. One guy even referred to me as an "ebony girl," as if I belonged in a tag on a porn site.
Abstract: This paper portrays female masculinity and the position of black women in Toni Morrison's Sula Women in this novel reconstruct their selfhood through rebelling on social norms and traditions. In their resistance, they act more like men than women. They work to create their selfhood and identity through rejection of the conventional gender roles, which women play in the community. Morrison's women contradict the stereotypes of black women in African American fiction.
This historical reconstruction of the experiences of African American women in America from slavery to the present exposes the prevailing and enduring system of White male domination. From White men having control of their reproductive choices, to conspiracy to withhold the right to vote, African American women were victims of both sexism and racism. Later, as a result of the myth conceived by White sociologists of the super African American woman, further divisiveness became apparent in the African American home. As African American women took advantage of educational opportunities only to find that there was a dearth of similarly educated African American males to marry, increasing numbers of African American men were reported as parties to violent acts, drugs or illness. All of these variables are conjectured as impacting on the African American woman's experience.
