@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

  1. You’re reinforcing the idea that 1. Ayesha Curry’s model of life should apply to all women. 2. That those who are not “classy” are automatically deemed as “hoes”, “thots” and the like, 3. That society has a place in policing what women do with their bodies & how they do it. I do think Ayesha’s message and intent was good. But she implied just like you are implying that women who choose to dress “provocatively” or less modestly is not classy or doing it for the attention of men and not for oneself. You can’t deem wokeprincess or any other woman less worthy of respect, love, attention just because they disagree with Curry’s viewpoint or don’t express themselves in the same way. You don’t even know her. How does one define they concepts of “classy vs trashy”, and “hoe v housewife” anyway? I think the true message is that we stop defining womanhood within those binaries and realize that women have the power to define it for themselves. You can be Amber and Ayesha. You can also respect Amber and Ayesha’s viewpoints and choices!

    1. What I’m saying is that women deserve to be more than hoes, they should aspire to be more than just vessels for men to ejaculate in. woke princess can feel however she wants to feel and write however she wants to write and so can you. BUT me and most other men should take a stand and appreciate the classy women, rather than bash them which is what woke princess did. I respect opinion, that’s why the internet is so great, but we can disagree…i wrote this post to remind people that the acceptance of hoeness is getting out of hand. thanks for reading my blog tho 🙂

  2. “i wouldn’t consider myself a feminist but i agree that women should have the same rights as men”

    That’s literally the definition of feminism. Social, political, and equality of the sexes. If you agree with those ideas, then you are a feminist. Why is it so important for you to disassociate yourself with the term feminist even if you believe in their fundamental ideas?

    1. Just because I believe in the fundamental idea doesn’t mean I agree with the way its carried out. I see feminism as a one sided coin that ignores “otherness” more specifically men’s issues and even BLACK women issues. You can call me a feminist if you want but I’m on the side of equality, true equality

      1. I think you’re not seeing feminism holistically, as “true” feminism (I feel uncomfortable using that word, but it’ll do for now) care about men’s issues, too. And yes, there is a problem with white feminism ignoring the plights of WOC, but again, there is a strong presence of intersectional feminists who acknowledge the different struggles WOC of face. It sounds to me as if you’ve only been exposed to mainstream feminism, which isn’t at all how most feminists think of the movement.

      2. I’ve taken a feminism course in university but I won’t pretend to know what most feminists believe. What I’ve seen, heard and learned is that feminism is a great concept but I see too much internal debate…that’s why I even wrote this post…self proclaimed feminists attack another woman for expressing herself

      3. They weren’t attacking her for her opinion. If she wants to cover up, that’s fine. If she doesn’t want to cover up, also fine. But saying that women who cover up are classy and those who don’t are trashy is the problem. A woman who chooses not to cover herself is not lesser than a woman who does, but Ayesha’s imply that the former are lesser.

      4. Hmm the problem with women who wear less is that the VAST majority do it for male attention rather than “just for themselves”…obviously woman can do whatever they want but I love what Ayesha said and I salute women like her

      5. What evidence do you have to support your claim that women wear less for male attention? Furthermore, why is it a problem if a woman wears less to garner male gaze?
