Re: Why do men hurt us?????

Your topic is endearing...Virtue! Black men are hurting, too! Some feel the hurt more than others. Societal pressures [seen or unseen] are there nonetheless. I'm not making excuses, 'cause I really do think that Black males need to work harder to treat the Black woman as the Queen she is...

It's because the "good guy" is too accomodating. Your analogy is correct, they do see him as their own "private eunuch" because that's the way he behaves. He literally acts as if he's been castrated. If you examine these so called "platonic relationships", you'll find them to be heavily one sided. He's just too happy to be there, to have the little bit of attention that is thrown his way. Would he be spending so much time with them if he had some romantic engagement to attend to? Of course...

Wearing a scarf or a yarmulke for strictly religious reasons is a long way for wearing head gear because of gang associations. That said if they truly treat all head gear including the yarmulke as the same then fine. But I believe that if a person of Jewish faith wore his they would probably find a way to get around the rule.
