WHO IS THE WHORE IN THIS EXAMPLE?

This is awful.
my first reaction to the Curry/Rose what makes a good woman contraversy
It insults me as a woman and as a human being.
my second reaction
How about a woman doesn’t have to give a good gotdam about what a man or some other woman think about how she dresses.
If and when you judge men by these same archaic and superannuated standards, I will right you off as crazy, until then you are just a slave to the patriarchy.
This reaches back to when women were property of a father or a husband and not of herself. how black people can sign on to this nonsense is …

Why is the sexuality and fashion choice of a woman up for review?
Because a man’s sexuality and fashion choice isnt up for review.
Just no and stop.
It is not old fashion any more that white supremacy is old fashioned. it is wrong and dangerous.

…and putting the woman down for being a former stripper… wtf?
I pray that if called on to support myself and family with WHATEVER skills I possess I have the uterine fortitude to do so.
women lay different parts of our lives on the live everyday… but it doesnt count if you are not in a suit, married to a multi millionaire.
everybody whores to something, for something, trust.
I whored for my kids. after the divorce I cared for them like there was still two checks and and work to make it spend like to checks and I did it with a suit on, but the grind is the grind and some of my clients made me take vodka into the shower to feel clean…
This notion that sex is a transaction.
someone giving.
someone taking.
How long have we been walking upright that we still cosign this bs basic thinking.
try this on.
A woman has her father’s name until she marries when ownership is transferred
“Who gives this woman to be wed?” to her husband.
“Man and Wife”  not “Husband and Wife”
presumably the woman is a virgin so that the man can be sure that his sons inherit his property.
so the father keeps his daughter as chaste and safe as possible to get the best bride price, dowry, on the contract.
the husband is looking for a presentable uneducated innocent virgin and some land and goats. and we ‘condemn’ or shame women who don’t fall into this narrow category. really.
the Bride is the item… a thing…

Now we can dress it up in fairy tales and white dresses and receptions.

but you put a ‘ring on it’ because you own it.
