It seriously depresses me as a woman when I hear conservative talking points. The number 1 point on the agenda is “The Family”. I have no problem with encouraging happy families. The problem comes in with what they would like to do about it and limiting the options of people that do not want what fits into their traditional family mold. That and it seems to always have to do with punishing women that don’t do what they want. Their solution to the number of out of wedlock births is to make it harder for women who already have children. Otherwise they would be for making contraception affordable. They would rather have women and children suffering in poverty to scare other women into towing the line. They never want to scare men though. An equally horrible position would be to force men to live in poverty or marry the mother of their children. No support for that. Even though child support enforcement lowers out of wedlock birth rates. Nope, have to punish those evil sluts or risk civilization.
I just love this song by Missy Elliot! Apple of my eye!
APPLE, APPLE APPLE OF MY EYE HILARIOUS!
I admire Oprah keeping her poise in the face of so many haters. I cannot stand Oprah haters. The basic reason is they hate her over untruths. If you hate celebrities and their self absorbed lives, I can get that.Usually, though, when I have had a conversation with people that hate Oprah, their reasons are, she hates black men, hates men in general or some variation of that claim.
I’m not an unreasonable person, I absolutely reconsider my ideas when confronted with proof. In Oprah’s case, I looked from some proof. I used to watch her show when I was younger, I recall no man hating from Oprah. I went through all the online videos of her show I could find and found nothing to cause concern. So she funded a leadership school for girls.
She has also helped fund many other schools that were not just for girls. I suspect the real issue is not something she has specifically said or done but a woman that seems to have a fulfilling life without the bulk of that fulfillment being totally focused on the man in her life. There are times it hurts me to think that if a black woman cured cancer she would be hated by black men if she dared be successful of her own accord.
Why can’t a sister get the least credit for something other than what she may do for a man or children? A woman’s success outside of that does not equal a man’s failure at anything. There is nothing wrong with any woman if she has extra aspirations other than the traditional gender role box they are trying to stuff us in.
Opah making a hater look stupid—-APPLE OF MY EYE ALL DAY! The hater, of course, gets the stink eye.
There are time I find the need to give myself the side eye because of thoughts I have or media I enjoy that is problematic. On those occasions I will create a self side eye post. In this case, the reason for the post is the fact that I like the song Lie about us by Avant. The melody is nice but if you really pay attention to the lyrics it is just so many levels of wrong going on there.
If I knew a woman in this situation I’d tell her run for the hills from this cheating piece of shit. Getting involved with someone in a relationship is just a recipe to get your heart broken, even if they do leave the other person for you. And of course who’s to say they will not be doing the same thing to you within a few months or a year?
I saw a trailer for an action movie Tyler Perry is in. I’m aware Tyler is on some list of supposed black men hating/black women stereotyping hated negro list that seems to only include him and Oprah.(and occasionally any black male actor that dresses in drag) The problem is I’m starting to become of the opinion that this type of attitude limits the type oftopics of movies black people can make or be in.
If any negative character role a black person is in is precieved to reflect on all black people negatively there is gonna be so limited a scope as to limit movies with blacks in them to biopics. And apparently biopics of black men cannot show anything about the black women in their lives. (Tuskeegee airmen) This is one load of BS I thing black people need to get over and damn right quick.
The fact of the matter is you could make every single damn black character in every movie from now on a super intelligent geinus of some sort and that’s not going to change one bit the minds of racist motherfuckers out in the world. Why is it movies with other races of people can just tell compelling, action filled or funny stories without them getting into a bitch-fit on how such and such a character is making their race look bad.
I know black people can tell the difference between fiction and reality…I’m starting to wonder. Well I for one am not going to be a part of this BS. I’m going to call it out for what it is whenever I encounter it. A turd. I give the stink eye to these numbskulls on this hot load of BS.
