As a 4b, do you at all feel alienated from the 4as, 3cs, and above?

On almost every natural hair website, it seems like there are almost no 4bs whatsoever. The ladies with long hair in their fotkis never have the same hair texture that I do. Plus, sometimes, some 3c ladies will complain about that "rough", 4b coily patch in the middle of their heads and say how they can never keep it moisturized and soft. Well, how do they think it is for someone with hair like that all over their head?
It's really not that bad, but they make it out to be like it's the end of the world.
So, this leaves me to the question...where are all the 4bs? I find it hard to believe that 90% of black women only have 4a or 3c hair.
Could it be that the 4bs are just the least prone to go natural?
And to answer the question, yes I do. I feel left out when people are talking about "defining curls." What curls? lol. But at the same time, it's a relief, because I just have to worry about keeping my hair healthy.
