i am waiting for you to put something on here that is encouraging to women. something like ‘why men have unrealistic expectations of women. maybe men call the shots when it comes to relationships, possibly because there are more women in the world and a few good men, supply and demand, marketing blah blah blah, so women end up taking what they can get instead of the best. i’m tired of women being portrayed as stupid, desparate, and all of the above video, just because they are single. its unfair and unfortunately life is like this. there are more negative things to say about the single woman than positive. can you PLEASE explain this Sir Nige. Stop putting single women down. there is nothing wrong with wanting a bit more for your life, actually its probably the men who cannot deliver who complain that women expect too much. anyway, i’ve had my moan for the day. cheers,
Knowing me as you do – is it in my character to put ANYONE down generally especially women (remember I have a sister)? Sharing this video along with eveything else on this blog is meant to stimulate a discussion or a debate as is the case now. I apologise if you find this video offensive. That was clearly not my intention. In fact I am currently drafting up a write up on my thoughts regarding this video.Stay tuned and let’s keeping talking about this. Thanks for your response though.
>i am waiting for you to put something on here that is encouraging to women
There are a zillion websites that say encouraging things to women. go to one of those sites if you want your butt kissed.
Oh Sir Nige, i was not offended at all. its just that so many women who are single are put down all the time. its as if life is not worth living if you not married. huh. so i’m just sticking up for the sisters and i know you do too. stay blessed
I’ve watched this video several times now and I have to say that I don’t think her focus is on single women alone.I think she merely uses single women as an example of the various people she’s talking about. I wouldn’t have posted that divisive kind of video had she been attacking any particular group in society.Divisive actions in my opinion don’t build communities. However the message I walked away with was that ‘we as people needed to look inward BEFORE we accuse someone else of anything’. That was the message I got from what the young lady had to say and I could be wrong.In my mind this message applies to both men and women.
I certainly disagree with this statement ‘i am waiting for you to put something on here that is encouraging to women’ and even challenge you to show me another post that supports this sentiment.
I thought the video was refreshing actually, being a woman myself i thought she mde a lot of sense. The consistent message in the video is – how can YOU (meaning anyone both men and women)expect a different outcome when YOU make bad choices or if YOU are not doing anything about a situation. look to yourself first before you look to others and place blame on how jacked up your life may be.
Black Dove thank you for stopping by.I totally agree with your thoughts…it all starts with YOU.
