A Man’s World… Or is it

What kind of world do we live in? Who established these social norms? Why has our culture manifested itself in the way that it has?

So many questions, so very little answers…

As a female in today’s society it’s not rare to get barked at by males, be  reduced to the color pants we’re wearing at the current moment, or even be thought of as sexual objects. Unfortunately this is a normality for so many.

Sure, some may argue that if females didn’t wear tight skirts or revealing blouses or the fact that they curled their hair and put on makeup, they wouldn’t get treated as they do. amber-rose-slutwalk-la-october-2015-bellanaija0003But…why does a woman’s attire and physical appearance represent her sexual standing? Too often today do women find themselves in a position that they couldn’t or shouldn’t have imagined that they’d be in. For these reasons, it’s people like Amber Rose that have started the “Slut Walk”, the no-shaming protest to end the rape culture and the dehumanization of women. If a woman is a bit more promiscuous than that of a nun, she’s every name in the book. The cruelty and slander is horrendous.

 

To make matters worse, our potential president-unfortunately, Donald Trump, has been interviewed, quoted, and filmed one to many times about his opinion on the female. Some of his many claims are that women are a distraction; their menstrual cycles, pregnancyy3hcusvl8wkq4l6f7xzgrdl72ejkfbmt4t8yenimkbvvk0ktmf0xjctabnaljim9, and emotional mindsets are far too chaotic, inconvenient and disturbing much less to be considered in any place of power or as president of the United States, referencing Hilary Clinton.

We know the setup, “what’s your name, what’s your sign, you got a man” etc. a timeless opener for males to entice a woman, but if theres a hint of sass given or an attitude underway we’re automatically the worst things walking this Earth. Sure, being dry or straight to the point  may not be the nicest thing to do, but if i’m simply just not interested or don’t want to be bothered why does that make me any less of a person. At a social event, a female was shot, SHOT, in her chest because she declined to give a man her phone number. Though she’s doing alright, it was such an unnecessary measure taken. It’s unclear of how nicely or rudely she may have declined his request, but why would that even be a factor? Why does a woman need to be a gentle lamb just to preserve her life in these types of occurrences???

It sort of reminds me of the senseless killings by the police officers. A man selling CD’s though thought to be suspicious or his activity even illegal, it doesn’t justify his death.He was shot several times at close range while being held down by other police officers.  If you’ve seen some of the comments of the videos that have gone viral you’d see some of thie ignorant nonsense people have posted. “If he wasn’t selling CD’s he wouldn’t have been shot, If he didn’t resist, if he didn’t talk back, if he didn’t stand there, if he didn’t blink, if he didn’t smile, if he wasn’t black….” so many hateful, blood-boiling statements that bring me back to the thought that no one deserves the treatment that society bestowes upon them. Whether it be a woman with tight fitting clothing that drank too much and thus gang raped or an innocent man hustling to feed his family shot and killed, there are no justifications for their resulting consequences.

On a Saturday night out with the girls, all dolled up, men approach you and no matter how nice or rude you try to be it’s like they don’t get it. On a particular occasion, a man bumped into a young woman and was very touchy as he apologized, she requested that he not touch her, and he turned into another person aside from the one that was just trying to apologize so affectionately. “You must think you’re hot S***, you think you’re bad, well you’re not you ugly little b****, that’s why you…”, the slurs, profanity, and insults continued as he walked away. When these types of things happen it makes me wonder if it’s even safe to go out anymore. Who knows what could happen if a male approaches a female now of days.

Males are using whatever tactics they can just to save face and their pride. Chloroform cloths are being heavily used on women, along with date rape drugs- Rohypnol or Roofie, as well as tazers, guns, and other weapons. It wouldn’t be shocking to know that women actually feel some sense of obligation to comply with men and their requests no matter the circumstance just to maintain their safety. To no surprise, campus crimes have increased. A couple of girls walking back to their dorms from the library meeting with their study group, and a male thinks that’s the perfect time to take advantage of the situation. As women, we’re made to feel so small, helpless, weak, and insecure that we need to carry our purse pistols, a shank, mace…and not that that’s a bad idea at all, but why has society made us feel so fearful that we need to utilize these strategies just to make it back home safely?

Recently, well-known, socialite, Kim Kardashian was tied up with taped mouth and blindfold and robbed by two men dressed as police officers while in Paris for fashion week. Kanye West happened to be having a concert in the city that week and when he heard of the news he immediately canceled the show and went to be with her. People were outraged by the cancelation and took it out on Mrs. West herself.  People trolled, made accusations, and called Kim all sorts of names and legitimizing the reason she was robbed claiming that she shouldn’t have “all that money” anyway. Love, like, hate, or indifferent, no one should be made to feel so less than that anything they have can be taken rather it be physical objects or other things. This scenario isn’t too far off from what happens to women everyday.

It’s all too surreal that our grandmothers were treated like queens when they were young. Given flowers, dated gentlemen who  thought they were lucky to have even have known the lady…times have definitely changed and not for better. As women, we definitely need to be aware of our surroundings, not caught up with capturing the “right light” while trying to take a selfie or other matters. It’s time to get serious. There are hotlines and helpful websites available. Talk to your mother, sister, grandmother, and other women. Talk to the men in your life too. Life is too precious and much to short to have it conflicted due to pride-hurt males.

Stay safe! Stay in the know!

Amber Rose had the internet roaring soon after her ex-hubby to be posted the pic.

The model wasn’t so subtle about showing her gratitude for the alluring sight he posted for us to see.

Does this mean the bald beauty may be rethinking the divorce?

I hope so! These two were so adorable and the amount of fun they had just gave us so much life.

Since recently divorcing Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, Hollywood star, has surely found high interest in focusing on his management endeavors – especially with new client Amber Rose!

Sources confirm, the Nickelodeon host took on Amber as a client prior to her breakup with  Wiz Khalifa late last month. According to reports, Cannon and Rose were linked at an event in LA a few days ago!

Nick Cannon appeared to support the bald beauty at the XXIV Kart Sparkling Wine Launch Party in LA on Thursday. Speculations surfaced as the two appeared to be inseparable at the event. “They were sitting very cozy in her booth. He wouldn’t take pictures with her,” In Touch Weekly states.

No matter how clever Nick tried to hide the truth it was quite obvious that he didn’t want people to speculate on their relationship. Even if it is just business, hmmm!

“We’re super excited about her brand. I feel like she’s one of those people who are truly an icon when it comes to fashion, style, and even just someone in pop culture,” Cannon says when asked about his upcoming plans for Ms. Rose. “I want to help her develop a lot of things and the first thing we are starting with is a book. We just did a huge book deal that we are really excited about.”

At least we know one thing, Nick Cannon and Amber Rose are handling business. But wait! What could she be writing a book about? A how to on twerking? Or maybe, her life with Wiz? It’s a mystery to the mind, but we’ll be sure to keep up with Amber’s progress.

“We kind of came up with a lot of the concepts together, but it’s going to be something where I think it’s going to shock a lot of people. I think it’s going to be really good for her brand and launch. My plan is to [begin with] the book then television, and so many other things. You’ll see, it will be out soon,” Nick states with excitement.

Well, we are definitely excited to see all things great about their new project.

Before leaving Amber was sure to confirm that her and Nick as a couple “Ain’t Happening.” What’s done in the dark will always come to the light.
