*There are thousands of women in the dating world who won’t give a man the time of day unless he drives an expensive car, owns his own property, can fuck like a porn star and will agree to pay for outrageously-priced manicures, elaborate weaves, late rent, clothes, and cell phone bills.
These expectations aren’t necessarily wrong. But what makes these woman any different than men who impose unrealistic physical expectations on the opposite sex? Don’t give yourself a brain aneurysm trying to answer this question. It’s very simple: there’s absolutely no difference at all.
Ladies, calling a man “sexist” is like calling the sky blue — you’re pretty much stating the obvious about 90 percent of all warm blooded males walking the earth. But what often goes unnoticed is how materialistic and sexually demanding women tend to be.
I browse the web regularly and almost daily I come across a story written by some ticked off journalist who believes misogyny and sexism are encoded in a man’s DNA. But rarely do these columnists acknowledge how women often use men as objects of financial support and sexual stimulation.
Janelle Monae, who I like, recently encouraged women to abstain from sex until men begin to respect the “vagina.” That’s a way to go, but it appears that she’s ignoring how often women disrespect and belittle men. It’s been going on for decades.
Let me take you through a brief timeline.
(Ahem) This began way back in the 1982 when Vanity told the world in her song “Nasty Girl” that a man needs 7 inches of dick or more to satisfy her in bed (that sounds like sexual objectification to me). Without feeling an ounce remorse, women often tease men who come up “short” below the waist (that, ladies, is an example of “body shaming”).
Madonna came next in 1984 with her song “Material Girl”, perpetuating the idea that men should be equipped with certain financial luxuries to be eligible for a woman’s time.
Fifteen years later, in 1999, TLC dropped the classic single “No Scrubs”, encouraging women across the country to dismiss guys that don’t own their own vehicle and live at home with their mamma. The lyrics are:
“No, I don’t want no scrub, A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me, hanging out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride, trying to holler at me.”
Continued: “But a scrub is checkin’ me but his game is kinda weak, and I know that he cannot approach me, ’cause I’m lookin’ like class and he’s lookin’ like trash, can’t get wit’ no deadbeat ass.”
That same year, Destiny’s Child dropped a single called “Bills, Bills, Bills”. In a nutshell, the song encourages single women to drain men for all they have financially. Apparently, a man’s supposed to empty his back account in order to qualify for a woman’s affection. These are just a few of the lyrics:
“Can you pay my bills / Can you pay my telephone bills / Can you pay my automo-bills / If you did then maybe we could chill.”
Seriously!? That’s a bit much.
And let’s not forget Nicki Minaj who makes references to the size of man’s Penis in just about every one of her songs. She also makes it clear that any man who wants her attention must be in possession of wealth, notoriety, and once again, a massive Johnson. I’m sure these standards have been adopted by many of her female fans across the US and beyond. That’s called “indoctrination.”
So here’s the 5 dollar question: Since women obviously feel comfortable imposing unrealistic standards on men, why isn’t it okay for men to impose expectations on how women look and carry themselves? Is there a difference?
Once again, the answer is NO! — there’s no difference whatsoever. But of course, many of you will disagree. That’s called “a double standard.”
It’s a vicious cycle. Most women feel pressure to look a certain way to attract the opposite sex. On the flip side, men generally believe that catching a woman’s attention requires a flashy car, a sizable bank account and an even larger Penis.
But while throngs of enraged feminists continue to point fingers at “insensitive” “disrespectful” men, it appears to be unlikely that a counter-demonstration will ever take place (although it should).
I’m not the only man who feels this way. But unlike most niggas, I haven’t been hypnotized by the power of pussy, which I admit, deserves respect. The only reason why men aren’t in the streets protesting right now is because they’re afraid that women will respond by putting a lid on their vagina. If only we had to strength to resist long legs, supple breasts, big booties, and of course, the V.
(Sigh) Too bad we don’t. See Janelle, not only do men respect your vagina, we’re evidently terrified of letting it slip through our fingers. Advantage women.
