@wokeprincess you ain’t slick either

 

my response to: https://plushbabe.wordpress.com/2015/12/06/ayesha-curry-you-aint-slick-boo/

i read your post, it was well written but i disagree with you on several points and as a black man i will voice my opinions. a little back story: Ayesha Curry tweeted about this “trend” of women wearing less and less while she decides give show the goods to the one who matters (her husband Steph). i recommend you read @wokeprincess post about the tweet but she blew this way out of proportion. i go to “feminist twitter” and see women, like the previously mentioned, equate what Ayesha tweeted as “sexist” “misogynist” and “prude”. while her critique has formal reasoning, it was an attack on black men clothed in a rational tweet by a successful, happy, classy woman, Ms.Curry.

i wouldn’t consider myself a feminist but i agree that women should have the same rights as men, women should do whatever they want with no restrictions. sleep with whomever, dress however, and speak however they want BUT my issue is that our generation has gone TOO FAR. the essence of what Ayesha was tweeting is this “value yourself, don’t let everything show, be unique, be different, don’t follow trends” plain and simple.

this is why @wokeprincess blog post was wrong and invalid. if she calls herself a true feminist then she should support what Ayesha tweeted rather than claim that she was slandering all “liberated” women. if you look at social media today most women are out there twerkin for likes, posting nudes for attention and thirst trappin for validation. ass shots just to claim they got a “fatty” when deep down they’re just an empty vessel (peep my poem before this post). at some point we must stop this bizarre standard. where a woman ain’t poppin if she has less than 500 followers, booty pics and 30 guys in the DMs. we as a generation are infested with the celebration of hoes and the rejection of good women. y’all are quick to worship Kim K or Kylie while ignoring Malala Yousafzai, Elizabeth Ho,ms, Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

why is it more poppin to be a “Bad Bitch” (Amber Rose wrote a how-to manual) rather than being the next Oprah? this is why black men are backing up Ayesha Curry. thee rational men out there see this trend, we don’t go out of our way to slander women who are sexually liberal, we are against this counter culture. this hate and disdain for women who don’t wanna look naked on IG. nowadays women would rather be thotting around than be something…actually achieving something instead of hitting up Dr. Miami or the genetic lottery. these women would rather trap a nigga with their looks, ass titties rather than a damn personality, intellect and nurturing spirit.

this is why @wokeprincess ‘s post is a problem, on the surface it reinforces the problem of slut shaming. but it uses a terrible example by attacking a classy woman. It projected an angry attitude towards the select few women who chose to be different, who chose to go against the grain. men regardless of race agree that it’s better to have a diamond than a pebble, a classy woman over a hoe. diamonds are special, they’re rare, they’re class, they’re hard to get, while pebbles are easy to find. i encourage women to speak up against this over-saturation of hoeness.

i have two younger sisters and seeing this message reminds me of the dangers that they’ll face. they will get bashed for choosing to be different, for going to university, being positive, being confident, showing class, restraint and having the integrity to stand out in  sea of “bad bitches”. i’d rather see them become the next Oprah than IG models, more Ayesha Curry than @wokeprincess

An Empty Vessel

Everyday we stare at a screen

viewing things that have never been seen

Colors florescent, bright, undertones of green

We look and stare

At the wonders and interactions that come

that unites and divides some

a forum for us to invent

to fill our hearts content

yet we look back at the time spent

we look and stare

our minds have a hunger so deep

that torments and disturbs our sleep

our instincts and our interactions that creep

and we seldom hear or see the grim reap

but

We look and stare

At the constructed lives on display

all the fake attention we pay

the false reality we call “social media” today

we turn on, shut off mind and stay

where likes validate, break, create, affirm, destroy your worth

where you can Instagram fame, facebook tragedy and snapchat birth

where conversation lies through the movement of thumbs

rather than the airways, lips and movement of tongue

necks made to bend down, heart made to stay out

attention made to give up, reputation made to get clout

yet we are

looking and staring.
