It’s insufferable to talk to my dad about “women” issues. Today at lunch, He was talking about a football player that was recently charged with domestic violence and how Stephen A. Smith made a comment about the matter that was along the lines of: “Sometimes the woman provokes the man and it’s not entirely the man’s fault for hitting the woman if she provokes him.” And instead of saying Stephen’s A. Smith’s comment was dumb as shit, my father instead said: “Stephen shouldn’t have said that because all of the feminist would jump all over his comment.” And I’m just sitting there like: wtf?
I just don’t understand people who think like this.
And they don’t even think about it. Don’t talk too loud, don’t make too many requests, don’t complain too forcefully about shitty service, put up with weird ass slightly racial compliments. And sometimes we joke about it like “lol! Better not do (normal human thing) cuz then people might think we’re uncivilized niggers” but it’s a painful constricting way to live. And not a type of way of living that non-Black people will understand.
