Decepticons: The Jason Collins Story and Wasting Years of Your Life Waiting on Him

Long-winded title, but hoping you get the point. Maybe you’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve been blissfully unaware of the hullabaloo that’s dominated the mainstream media for a couple of days. See, what happened is an NBA baller (snicker) earned his 15 minutes of fame by declaring that he is – wait for it – wait for […]

Black Women: When All Else Fails In Heterosexual Relationships, Become A

Did I get your attention? I’m warning those of you who are very tender and sensitive to be aware that the next few paragraphs will be no-holds barred, non-politically correct, coming from my perspective and experiences (off-line). So, this isn’t something I gleaned from reading anyone’s comments, blogs, Facebook profiles, or having a third eye […]

What Kind of Black Woman Are You?

I thoroughly enjoyed the following comment by Stacey, so I decided to make it a post. By the way, the post title is a general question, not aimed specifically at Stacey. The following continues the discussion originating in the Black Actress Review: Just Wright – Big Boned Gurl Gets Good Guy Balla post. Stacey says: Ok, I must […]

The Jeremy Lin Show

NBA: Same Ol’ Same Ol’ It has been years since I’ve followed sports, basketball in particular. I watched the Knicks when Ewing played for them, that’s how long ago it’s been. And if you want to know how out of it I was, I’ve never watched Michael Jordan play. I’ve never tuned into his games. […]

Note: Let me put my caveats up front. This post obviously does not apply to each and every black woman, since some of us are flexible, flirtatious, and at ease with white and other non-black men. The Swirl Imperative: Becoming More Social There is no shame in lacking a flirting game or being a bit […]

Our Cinderella Has Blossomed: Monae Gives Us An Update

I love good news. I love to hear when things are looking up for young black women. Monae is a contributor  from an older thread, For Black Women: Why White Men are a Better Choice. She asked for help and received a delightful outpouring of advice. Here’s an update from our young lady: OMG, it’s […]

Rant: I Need My Own Cyrano De Bergerac

Granted, I can be a decent writer when I’m angry or in an especially good mood. I think my writing is even superb when I work at it. But I’m thinking there’s something off when I write a personal ad or even a resume. It’s odd how I put those two together, but they both […]

When Black Women Choose To Date Inter-Racially, They Are Not Abandoning Their Race

The following quote comes from Womanist Musings Blog. She is so on point. The first love of a Black woman’s life should always be herself. We have been taught to devalue ourselves because this strengthens not only the Black male patriarchy but patriarchy in and of itself. Any man that refuses to treat you like […]

The False Lure of Sexual or Reproductive "Freedom"

I believe women have the right, and I wouldn’t criticize it, to fornicate with any number of men, women, and animals (where legal) if that is what they want to do. I believe the same rights also apply to men. This applies, obviously, to consenting adults, whatever age society believes an adult is. And as […]
