Brothers, it appears the women folk are tired of our shit. They are mad as hell and they aren’t taking it anymore. At least, that’s what I gather from the T-Time Today blog entitled “Ladies, Stop Playing Wife If Your Man’s Not Playing Husband.”
In it, author and good friend T.S. Johnson lays out a few choice tips for women who cook, clean, fuck, kowtow, beg, and plead — among other things I personally approve of — in order to ensnare men who aren’t as equally reciprocal. Johnson chides these women, calling them desperate and claiming that they are “making it hard” for the rest of them. What does this mean for us, brothers? Well, I’ll tell you.
Johnson is calling her sisters to arms. She proposes that it should take more than charm, intelligence, and overall sexiness (all traits that I possess) to get the drawers. She posits that a man who questions a woman’s culinary abilities should be made to go hungry. Furthermore, she scoffs at the notion of a man’s birthright to have a beautiful woman on his arm, regardless of his financial status. And bootie calls? HELL NO. You can forget all about bootie calls. Why should a woman be at a man’s beck and call in the wee hours of the morning? To satisfy his sexual desires? Pssshaw. You must be out yo’ rabid ass mind.
So, brothers, it seems we must step our game up even further. We’ve got to stop being selfish, oafish, lazy ne’er-do-wells and treat our sisters as equals, not as property. As Johnson states:
If you want 150% from me, then you better be giving me 150% in return. But don’t expect to operate on 10% and expect me to give you 150. If you’re operating on 10%, I’m operating on 20 and that’s just because I’m nice–sometimes.
Ouch. Disregard those “Cater 2 U” fantasies you’ve heard so much about, brothers — after all, Beyonce sure as hell ain’t catering to us. And perhaps it is our turn to cater to them.
Or, we can just turn to white women.
