"Male Shortage" vs. "Bad Choices"
Sister Powerflower, since you just joined our discussed, I will provide a brief synopsis of what our seven page long thread has been about. The male posters are arguing that Black women are not having satisfying relationships because they make "bad choices." Women posters are arguing that if decent Black men were plentiful, then Black women would have more "better choices" from which to choose. Male posters are denying charges of there being a "male shortgage" and female posters have spent the last seven pages trying to convince them that it is true. So sister, which side are you on? Do you believe that there is a male shortgage or are Black women naturally bad daters who make bad choices.
one of the reasons why the black man shortage myth is just that is because not all of the women in that 'ratio' are desireable or seeking positive men in their lives. Women are quick to eliminate men who are non-degreed, but never eliminate women with kids. Which is a 'harder' dating situation?? dating a degree-less man or dating a babymomma? I think the babymomma is harder because her kids must come first in her life and require a great deal of her time. Also, what if the kids don't like the new man? ['you not my real daddy!!'] Can he marry into that situation??
As for 'bad choices' I will take back my comments...you all have convinced me. Dating and mating with in and out of jail drug dealers are the best black men available. I encourage the continuation of this for many more generations to come
