Since Slim Thug made the statement “Black women need to stand by their man” and a host of other comments that now has his foot in his mouth, everybody is sounding off. We posted the comments from an educated black man’s point of view on Freddyo.com on Wednesday in response to Slim Thug, now Aubrey from Dannity Kane has sounded off. According to Vibe.com, this young lady has a lot to say on the issue. Please, let us know what you think, because this is another hit in the jaw for Slim Thugger. Yeah, this story is FAR from over. Ladies sound off…
Please. Drop the delusions of grandeur, gents. We see right through you! This paper-thin layer of unjustifiable â€˜swaggerâ€™ and pseudo-confidence is simply masquerading the vulnerability and self-doubt of the modern day man. The subtext is clearâ€¦ spineless men of all creeds are waving the proverbial white flag of defeat. Unable to cope with the demands of a new class of empowered, strong-willed and fiercely independent women, theyâ€™ve resorted to projecting their insecurities on those that, god forbid, expect them to live up to their potential.
Letâ€™s be clear. This is not a race issue. Itâ€™s yet another twist on the age-old enigma that is gender relationships. Despite what you may have read, Iâ€™m a White girl that couldnâ€™t cook to save her life, treats no man like a king and certainly doesnâ€™t obey dictatorial male ego, even if it means my jobâ€¦ but I certainly can cater to deserving men who are secure enough to take on the challenge of a strong woman. We can be loud, opinionated, and rebellious, and we make no apologies for it. Itâ€™s not a Black thing, or a White thing. Itâ€™s a women thing, and trust me when I say that the sooner you men come to realize it, the better off youâ€™ll be.
Hollow diatribes like this, reeking of machismo and senseless boasting, are nothing new. Just a transparent attempt to silence the collective female voice. Itâ€™s telling that what the author likes best about his Ivy League educated girlfriend is that she â€œdo all the shit that I say.â€ Sheâ€™s apparently a â€œsmart girl, too,” but no surprise that that he ranks that trait a distant second behind obedience.
And, sidebarâ€¦ Whatâ€™s it mean to â€œstand by your manâ€? As far as Iâ€™ve witnessed from thinkers such as this, its simply code for wanting their women to sit idly by as they lie and cheat their way through the relationship. Please me, but donâ€™t bitch when Iâ€™m pleasing your sister and best friend, or blatantly lying to your face about the weekendâ€™s captivating conquests! I suppose itâ€™s our fault for not â€˜standing by youâ€™? Forgiveness is one thing. Asking women to turn a blind eye, and â€œbow down,” is quite another.
No woman wants to be a manâ€™s pawn. Relationships are meant to be a joint venture, not a form of employment if only fitting the appropriate â€˜wifeyâ€™ credentials. Iâ€™d shudder to think that all men harbor the views championed by the Thug named Slim. Iâ€™m waiting for a knight in shining armor to prove me wrong, but after reading an article like thisâ€¦ once again, I wonâ€™t hold my breath.
