I hate it when men make unsolicited comments about a woman’s body. Like “she’s got a nice shape but she needs to tighten up her stomach”

How about you tighten up your lips and never speak again you ignorant shit.

Wow maybe you need to accept constructive criticism jesus christ.

Men telling me (or any other woman) what I need to do for them to find me sexually attractive is not constructive criticism.

I normally would NEVER comment on something like this, but this makes no sense.

She is right it isn’t constructive criticism its someone stating their personal opinion. We all have those, at what point in time did it become a crime for men to have preferences?

A man clearly stating NOT to the woman but to someone they know their own personal views which is made obvious in the original post isn’t reason to say “never speak again you ignorant shit”. If women didn’t feel this way also and have their own personal views then that would mean they would be attracted to every man they saw or that approached them.

This is not a man saying what a woman needs to do for them to find her sexually attractive he is stating his opinion just like people do when they say “oh he cute but he doesn’t have a job”, or “he’s cute, but he can’t dress”, “oh he’s cute, but he______”.  Lets be real and not act like there isn’t a reason women go for the “bad boy” for the most part. Women gravitate towards a certain type of man just like men do to a certain type of woman.If you don’t say it out loud you think it. Lets be real and not act like ya’ll have never stated something you didn’t personally like about a man to someone else.

Never ending cycle that needs to be broken. #MisdirectedAggression #Misogynoir

Black power is for black men. 

im glad someone said it

this is a strawman argument that NEEDS to be broken and dismantled. Absolute fallacy.  
This is the same tactic Gloria Steinem used when she created Black Feminism forty years ago. “Black men don’t care about Black women so why should you care about them period.”
Nah sahn we are not about to repeat this cycle. 

That’s not what she is trying to do. She is simply summing up her perception of things. I agree with her 50 percent but I also know that there are black men out there that still love us.

From her own text, she is making a generalized statement, charging Black men, in general, of at the very least neglect. 
You would not accept a generalized blanket charge against Black women 50%,40% or even 30%.  
It is equally unacceptable to let this fly as well. Because I will tell you what it is doing, it falls in line with feminist practices of making all women victims and thusly all men are the villains.  That is the conclusion of this line of thinking. Black people operating within this paradigm will continue down a road leading to Black annihilation for the most simple fact that Black men and women will not even trust each other.
This is before we even get to the point of how do you draw a correlation between protesting police brutality and murder of black men AND women to say that Black men don’t care about Black women.  It’s a statement without any logical framework, it’s an emotionally charged statement based on a strawman argument. 
Dead that shit yo.

The Measles, Mumps and Rubella #Vaccines can already be implicated in the rising rate of #Autism in #AfricanAmerican babies, so its not a far stretch for me to say (not assume) that vaccines are being used in #Africa to wipe out her populations. Africa’s mineral resources are of utmost importance to the maintenance of #WhiteSupremacy, and the regions in Africa with the highest rate of disease mirrors the places with the highest level of commodities…coincedence?!? I don’t think so. Africa doesn’t need #ForiegnAid…it needs to be left the fuck alone. by thewelldressedvegan http://ift.tt/1ldipHs

Trigger Warning
Image Credit” UniteWomen.Org
In 2005, 19-year old army private LaVena Johnson,  was the first woman from Missouri to die in Iraq, according to the Army, of suicide. Only after her family insisted on seeing photographs taken at the scene of her death did they realize she was found in her tent with a gunshot wound to the head, a broken nose, black eye, loose teeth, acid burns on her genitals (there is speculation that this was done to cover up possible sexual assault), and a trail of blood leading away from her tent. The army ruled that her death was a SUICIDE.  Her father, a doctor who has worked with military personnel for more than 20 years, believes his daughter was raped and murdered.  A documentary, “LaVena Johnson The Silent Truth,” their attempts to uncover the truth was released in 2010. There is a website with updates, LaVena Johnson and a petition asking Senator Claire McCaskill to investigate her death. As Cilla McCain, founder of Military Families for Justice asks, would this case by taken seriously if LaVena Johnson were not a black woman? Her parents have established a scholarship fund in their daughter’s name. Donations can be made to The LaVena L. Johnson College Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 117, Florissant, MO 63032

When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.

Say it!

They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”
