Sisterhood or Nah?

As of late, there’s been rumblings of Facebook groups that are geared towards exposing men of their infidelity. “Sis is this your man?” is the name of the new group. First thing I want to mention is the irony of the title. SIS? Really?? Whomever created this group or series of groups is mocking the hell out of sisterhood by the mere mention that she is your sister. Naturally if she was, you’d be more careful with her heart than to publicly/within a private group of spectators, oust her and her man.

Real quick in case you don’t know how to have that conversation if it happens to you, I’ll tell you. I’ve been on all sides of this so trust me, I’m speaking from experience. It’s best to first ask the woman how she’s doing, to tailor the tone of your voice to not sound TOO EXCITED about the news, maybe ask her how her relationship is, to gauge what’s going on with her and her mate. Then ask her if someone had some information about his dishonesty would she want to know. IF SHE SAYS NO. CHANGE THE SUBJECT. I’m trying to save you, because quite frankly, even if she says yes, she could hate you forever.

Anywho back to this group. I may feel differently about it later, but right now, my resolve for DUMBASS things that would only depress me about human nature, or women is very low. You can feel the anxiety, calamity, and anguish in these groups. Ladies are literally volunteering their men probably praying that no one knows him. Not only that, some of the single ladies are having a field day reveling in the amusement. So they can run to their perspective social media pages, and dog women for their stupidity and validate their negative feelings towards black men.  WHY YALL? Seriously are we really this unfortunate? Is this the state of black relationships in society? Tear down the ones that exist, in the guise that we’re helping each other. COME THE FUCK ON YALL.

You mean to tell me that in your years of infinite wisdom, you’ve never been her?  You’ve never been the side piece? I’ll answer for you, you have. So maybe we should find more constructive things to do with our time then to find new inventive ways to make each other feel worse? Just for a little bit.

I don’t expect you all to hallelujah hand clap off of this post. I really don’t, because what I’m saying is an unpopular opinion. I actually value sisterhood, I don’t spend half my day finding humor in pain and brokenness. I’d rather we do better as black women, I know we have a boat load of things that we go through outside of ourselves and with each other. But I think we should be able to meet in the middle on somethings, this is one of those things. Try not to call a woman your sister while you’re stabbing her in the back. Do me that favor.

Ladies, Make Him Act Right! (From a man's perspective)

So ladies, we have a tendency to get advice from women about MEN far more than we should. So I have a special treat today. We're going to get some advice on how to entice, encourage, and exalt a man from you guested it.. A MAN. I picked one, who speaks with the sole purpose to educate. So some of his language may be a bit harder than you're used to but.. you will not be disappointed. Capt SistaGurl Out!  Introducing Tikko Brohey  Ladies do you feel like “dudes ain’t shit” or “dudes don’t act right?” Have you ever thought about the things you do that contribute to that? The answer is probably not.  Now granted there are dudes out there who just ain’t shit, and that’s just what it is. Majority of men are good men. But his partner can often determine just how good he'll actually be. Every woman deserves to be treated like a queen, as every man deserves to be treated like a king. The disconnect comes from when there’s an argument all the King and Queen shit is out the

It's Not Love, it's Love Adjacent

It’s my thought that the heart and the mind take turns in sharing authority in how we pattern our personal decisions. They cannot both be in control at the same time, and I believe that there’s a celestial straw pulling to determine which will rule within each given moment. The dangerous part about this is, sometimes when the heart wins, we forget to use our brain . When this happens, we start making decisions that are completely passion driven, hunger driven, and backed behind a receptor that shouldn’t receive as much showtime as it’s getting. Sometimes you fall in love with someone that is all wrong for you. They don’t feed you spiritually, they don’t feed you mentally, and maybe they don’t respect you. But they have ONE or two things on our list, so we keep them around. But by osmosis, all the signs that you saw in the beginning appear a bit less obvious, and now you THINK you love this person. Your heart is in control and your brain is taking a break, your brain has

RAPPER RESET: MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR RAPPERS TO TAKE A SOCIAL MEDIA BREAK

By Capt SistaGurl Once upon a time, in the age of a coke-induced Russell Simmons, rap battles were king, LL Cool J wore a Kangol, and the female rappers were fresh and diligently working their way up to the mainstream within the culture. As the years progressed, and Russell said no to drugs, and yes to very young women, the image of the genre changed, but one thing still reigned true.  RAPPERS RAPPED their frustrations in the studio and on rare occasions award shows and radio stations. There’s a period in between where rap was aligned to violence and our most popular rappers were at the center of a feud, but let’s leave this out for now because those times were outside of the norm. Except for that one time in the studio, 50 got jumped, Murder Inc got raided, and the beef spilled outside of the booth. But that’s really it, right? Well no, not really, it happened a few more times.  BUT PRIMARILY, rappers used their words for a primary pursuit of dominance and it was friendly, and lucrat
