Are the negative characteristics that some associate as just "how black women are", attributed and/or associated with the lack of a positive male role

In a conversation with a friend last evening, we got on the topic of my next show...(What Do Black Men Think of Black Women", 7-27-07, www.blogtalkradio.com/sassyentertainment @ 9pm, call in 646.716.7414) and inevitably I thought of another topic.

He stated that the problem with black women is the lack of a positive male role model in their lives currently and/or in their past. He said that because the black man has neglected his duties regarding parenthood and because some men would rather run game on women, that the women have developed these so called negative characteristics that seem to be indicative of black women.

He doesn't agree that this is the reason why brothers date women of other races...he does however, believe that this is the reason why black women can appear mean and negative to some...and vulnerable and easy to others.

It got me to thinking about his statement, and having grown up with my father, and having a come from a loving background whose parents are still married to this day, it never occured to me that this could be a reason why some sisters harbor some resentment towards men. Is this the reason why sisters are alone? Is it because they lacked the proper male role models that they constantly end up in negative situations?

I have to ask are they subsconciously finding men that have the same unsavory characteristics of the men that weren't in their life? Are the men that they choose seen in the light of more of a father figure---one that can give guidance, as opposed one that is loving and nurturing and willing to be in a positive committed relationship?

Personally, I seek men like my father, protective, strong, responsible, intelligent, committed, and loving, to wit these are characteristics my brother embodies...not to mention the countless uncles and cousins that I have that shows me that men are caring, responsible, and loving. I understand that if one wishes to marry and/or be in a positive committed relationship, we are going to have to compromise (nee submit) to achieve that. For some sisters the word "submit" means a total lack of non-thought on their part, which is wrong, to submit to your man, IMO is the understanding that you love and support him to do that which will enhance your lives together. You understand his goals and are totally supportive of his endeavors. That doesn't mean that you support illegal or unmoralistic activities, but it does mean you have to be supportive and positive...it doesn't mean a woman has to totally compromise all of her values, but she understands that compromise is key to ALL successful relationships...

So are the negative characteristics that some associate as just "how black women are", attributed and/or associated with the lack of a positive male role model in their lives? Are women choosing men like their daddies be it good, bad or indifferent?

I'm interested in your thoughts...

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so horny...it hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came here...to you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Women Are Emotionally Retarded

The topic on women not listening sparked a madddd debate between a friend and I.

I am of the belief that if a woman is interested in a man and that man she is interested in or in lust with doesn't reciprocate her feelings she should move on. She should remove herself from this man and also ensure that he is no longer in her immediate inner circle/core of friends, but rather on the outer fringes of her life. I was told that by my saying this, then I believe that women are emotionally unable to handle rejection and therefore must cast their net out to others hoping that someone else will bite. Rather we (women) should keep this man around as a friend and not involve ourselves with other men, just because the man that the woman is interested in is not interested in her. He went on to liken it to a woman shooting buckshots until she shoots and catches someone.

I went on to state that if women find themselves in this emotional quagmire of a situation with a man whose feelings aren't …
