penis-led: Defines men who are unwilling or unable to hold themselves accountable for managing and controlling their sexual urges.
poonannie: The Grown Zone adaptation of the term punany or punani, originally used in India and later popularized in Jamaican/Caribbean culture to describe the female sex organ. Our spelling of the term was passed down to Zara by her father, Sam Green Sr., and expands the definition to all aspects of feminine sexuality.
Poonannie Principles: Rules and guidelines established and taught by Zara Green, holding women ultimately accountable for governing access to their bodies and powers of procreation, with H.E.R. as an uncompromising standard.
rachet: Originally popularized in urban culture and used to define people, conduct and situations that are trashy, lacking in class and/or social appropriateness, rude or crass.
rachet TV: Used to define a particular genre of television programming, such as certain reality show franchises and talk shows, which offer people participating in rachet conduct, conflicts and situations as entertainment.
Sam Greenisms: The teachings and philosophies of Sam Green Sr., a self-educated entrepreneur and barbershop owner and the father of Zara Green, delivered in raw, straightforward language. Veterans of the Grown Zone are familiar with the unadulterated wisdom of Sam Green, which Zara has culled from raw, uncensored discussions between her father and his customers in the barber shop, as well as from their heart-to-heart father-daughter talks aimed at preparing her for life, including understanding the motives, predispositions and thinking of men.
sustainers: Those characteristics with a high correlation to a person’s capacity to establish, build and sustain healthy relationships, but are often of secondary considerations (after attractors) when considering potential relationship partners. Most of us have been conditioned to automatically (usually incorrectly) associate sustainer characteristics with people who have one or more of the socially desirable attractor characteristics. Sustainer characteristics include the capacities for respect/admiration (appreciation), compassion, forgiveness, fidelity/loyalty (trustworthiness), acceptance/tolerance and physical safety/emotional security.
unhealthy: In the Grown Zone, this is anything or anyone that blocks, undermines, restricts or diminishes your capacity for learning, self-love and personal growth. It also defines those things that deprive relationships and relationship partners of honor, esteem and respect (see H.E.R.).
