a god.... heavy word.... yes.... loaded with meaning.....

but these women aren't crack pots.....
some of them use this word..... because of the strength attached to it.....

This shows me the importance of certain qualities....

This also shows me the desperation to see this aspect of manhood played out......

So much so..... that they'll even turn towards a thug to receive it.....

Peace,

Virtue, thanks for articulating such a foreigh (to me) point of view - theirs, not yours. Wink

Time is tight for me today so let me cut to the chase (I don't have time to read all the other responses, so apologies for that)...

First, just to clarify - you are intimating that these women date thugs because they see thugs - and their relationship with them - as say, 'sticking their middle finger up' at societal controls - in particular (or exclusively) at white priviledge and control?

If that's the case, I can almost see why women who are more educated do this - because although I am guessing - perhaps despite all their education... as black women they still feel a lack of control in their lives, and feel disenfranchised.

Two questions please...

1. are these women aware that is what they are doing?
2. and, if so, are they also aware how detriental this behaviour/choice (conscious or otherwise) is to them, their potential mate, their community and their sense of self-worth?
