I said type 4 hair is prone to tangling. Yes, all hair tangles, but my hair type will tangle quicker without having to be left alone as long as straighter hair types. There's nothing wrong with that. I said that.
My statements weren't directed to any particular person. My issue is that I think many black folks struggle with the natural properties of kinky hair...the frizz, the fuzz, the puffy roots, knotting....and all the rest. It's a constant point of contention. When you ask many us why the word is so distasteful, it seems that it's often because the word reminds us that we don't have "silky", "smooth", "flowy" hair that "behaves" well in hot, humid weather. We're embarrassed. Not everbody who hates the word feels that way. But I'm convinced many do.
Just because you have an understanding of how type 4 hair looks/behaves, and your're comfortable with that doesn't mean everybody has the same understanding/level of comfort.
Of course folks take issue with jacked up hair, and it's easy just to say that.
