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.

download.jpegThis isn’t a rant for “men haters”, this isn’t a “women rule the world”-Beyonce combo, this isn’t to possey up and start a mob to start killing them off, this is to establish knowledge about what’s going on, in 2016 where a female can’t be too sure about her life’s state when a man approaches her. 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!

When Will They Learn?

Soon all of the big names in Hip Hop will be one big family, literally! It seems that everyone’s exes and baby mommas/baby daddies are swapping ex partners! What in the world is wrong with these people?

Well, this time Tyga‘s ex and baby momma Blac Chyna is– reportedly–dating Ciara‘s ex and baby daddy Future. That’s not even close to the juicy part. According to Buzzfeed, Blac Chyna has gotten a tattoo that may shift that reportedly dating to definitely dating. This weekend, she got Future tattooed on her hand. Not only that, but the two have only been dating for around 2 weeks! This all seems so familiar. Didn’t Tyga get a Kylie Jenner tattoo? Is this payback? Who knows.

Blac Chyna captioned the picture, “thought it was a drought,” which Future can be found rapping on his DS2 album.

Is this all just a coincidence? Is she simply referring to her actual future? Do people really think that cursive tattoo font actually looks good? 

Blast-A-Thon: Tyga’s Secret Transgender Lover

Always remember…what’s done in the dark will always come to the light!

Since the dawn of Caitlyn (Caitlyn Jenner that is) it seems that many of her transgender fellows are breaking their silence- even one who has allegedly been sleeping with Tyga.

Yup, you read it right…Tyga has been blasted for allegedly having sexual relations with a transsexual!

Transgender model Mia Isabella is pouring the honey, reporting that she’s the woman Tyga’s been sleeping with behind Kylie Jenner’s back. According to Mia, she and the Pleazer rapper had an ongoing relationship for just about 3 years since her move to Los Angeles. In those three years, the actress confirms that she’s been riding with Tyga even way back when he was with Chyna.

Interesting enough as means of covering their tracks if the public were ever to discover their dirty little secret, the two agreed that using her career as a fashion stylist and a consultant for his brand was a great excuse to bridge their connection. Ha! She still put their business on blast so was there really a need for the secrecy?

Mia confirms that their relationship is no secret amongst her close friends as the two have been seen together during their private time with invited guest. LB Scott reports, the 25-year-old rapper is willing to risk it all after recently making place to spend time together just a couple of weeks ago.

Rumor has it Mia was featured on an alleged sex tape with her former roommate model Capri, who was once tied to Charlie Sheen.

I must say Tyga is very ballsy especially through a baby mama and a young girlfriend he surely did play his cards well with keeping this secret discrete. Well maybe not too well seeing how he had to have pissed off Ms. Mia Isabella since she’s just him on blast or really maybe she just wants some attention.

Oop, you know we had to drop a little honey in your tea!

Poor Kylie! Somehow some way drama just seems to always find Tyga. How will he explain this one?

I don’t know if i’s just with Mia, but if you ask me Tyga’s sense of conversation is whack. What do you think about this sticky situation?

 

 

“Fake” Drake Retaliates

Don’t send for Drake because when he comes for you he may just hit you where it hurts.

If there’s one thing that Drake knows its industry beef! Especially since he’s beefed with many big named artist like Jay-Z, Kanye, and Kendrick Lamar. Well this time his problem is with Tyga.

Yesterday, in a straightforward interview with Vibe, Tyga held nothing back when he  confessed that he doesn’t like his former label mate, Drake, because he was “fake”. He went on to say that his relationship with Drake, and Nicki Minaj, was forced because they were on Young Money together,  and they never really clicked.

This morning Drake had no problem with retaliating by doing one of the worst things a man could ever do to another man, especially when messing with his territory – he doubled tapped Blac Chyna’s Intragram pics! Five to be exact.

And now we see just why Tyga may have never rocked with Drake from the start! But could Tyga’s disinterest in Drake steam from more than just their different personalities?

Back in 2010, Drake released a song titled “Miss Me” where he mentions his desires for Blac Chyna:

Call up King of Diamonds and tell Chyna it’d be worth the flight
I’ll be at my table stacking dollar’s to the perfect height
Work something twerk something basis
She just tryna make it so she right here gettin naked
I don’t judge her, I don’t judge her
But I could never love her cause to her I’m just a rapper
And soon she’ll have met another

Whoa there, did he really say that? He sure did!

The irony of this is that a year later, at Tyga’s 22nd birthday party, he and Blac Chyna publicly they were dating. However, according to Nicole Bitchie, just six months before that Lil’Wayne and Drake reportedly made it rain $25,000 on Blac Chyna and her King of Diamonds co-workers Memorial Day Weekend.

This isn’t the first and probably won’t be the last time that Drake beefs with another rapper because of a girl. Remember Serena?

What do you think about this sticky situation?
