– One. When Tupac states, “I swear I’ll never call you
bitch again, believe me”, was he being honest? Does he reassure his girl that it was purely by
mistake and not by intention. Did he reiterate that he sees her as more and not as less than? And for those exact reasons
he takes back what he says. Does he reevaluate her
role within the context of all the other important
women in his life who played a major role in
his flourishment and success and all I am saying is,
I want someone to love me as much as rappers love
calling women bitches and then later in life apologizing for it. Two. So when he calls you a bitch, don’t blink, don’t fight, don’t frown, don’t excuse his poor use of language. Smile, smile, but don’t
blink, say thank you, say you’re so sweet, say you have all the
women before you to thank, that you’d like to thank your momma, tell him you have little
boys like him to thank, tell him being a bitch
didn’t come easy to you, tell him you had to work at it, tell him being a successful
bitch takes a lot of effort. Let him know we bitches
don’t just wake up like this. Three. When I wake up drenched in sweat because I went to bed in
lingerie and a fur coat I am instantly reminded that life is not a raunchy music video and I am not a professional video thottie, I am not fried meat and
I am not sweet candy. I am the survival of
generations of women before me who did not have a fuck to give. They gave me life and
hips and tits and advice. Advice that did not end in words like, “throw that ass in a circle”. Four. For argument’s sake, throw
that ass in a circle. Become so engulfed in the
way your body can move that you forget about how they tried to marginalize your beauty or
trivialize your proportions while in the same breath
whitewash your culture. Remind yourself that you
are built like a goddess and it’s not their fault that
they forgot how to worship. So take them to church,
take them to the temple show them a miracle, give them your salt. Tell them to come closer and get a taste. Five. Last week I took myself to Red Lobster. Six. Dating in 2017 be like, “We not together “don’t be blowing up my phone “but you not messing
with no one else, right? “Not that I care ‘cuz we not together”. New phone, who this? Hey baby can I waste your time. Old phone, who this? Text me, DM me, but whatever
you do, don’t call me. Seven. Last week I wrote an article called, “It’s not you Reverend Run, “it’s your ridiculously
antiquated way of thinking” this and “29 other things wrong with men “who like to give women
advice about how to be a woman “as if they had any fucking clue”. Eight. Momma forgot to warn me
that we women are still objects of obsession. Still considered the fun sex. Still thick and sexy,
still exotic and tasty, still meaty like meat. Like flesh, like an open
wound that won’t heal. So ladies, when he tells you he can mend your scars that he can remedy your broken heart that he will build you up
and not break you down. Say, “No thank you”. Remind him that, we women, we got the skin made for war. Thank you. (cheering and applause)
