Why is it so acceptable in society for BLACK MEN to wear their natural hair and not for BLACK WOMEN?

I wear my natural hair(in braids like my avatar). I get compliments from it from everyone

but i heard some black women tell me that many black men look down at black women that wear natural hair, and they don’t find it attractive. I’ve never heard a black man tell me that….BUT if this does happen, then why don’t those black men relax their hair too!

I think that’s not so much a matter of race, but one of fashion-victims and gender.

I’ve got the impression that in the past ten years it was fashionable to have straight hair, whereas before that everybody wanted to have wavy hair and in the eighties the mainstream ran around with very tiny curls and large backcombed bangs.

And I guess the reason why they criticize you is that women have this tendency to force everyone into looking like a fashion clone, whereas it usually isn’t expected of men to follow all trends. And actually most men don’t care whether a magazine says that their favorite hairstyle has gone out of fashion or not – and they’re right doing do.

So, just stay the way you are and keep your hairstyle. Imagine everyone ran around with straightened hair – it would be pretty scary and boring. Those women who criticize who just haven’t got a sense of individuality. And as you can see from the reactions of the men around you: being attractive isn’t a matter of hairstyle.
