Jessica Simpson in the sand looking hungry

“It was like napalm, sexual napalm” – John Mayer about sex with Jessica I am sure you have heard about, or read the allegedly racist comments John Mayer made in his interview with Playboy. While I do agree that the man has zero brains when it comes to foresight for backlash when you make dumb jokes to the press – calling him a racist is not going to be exact science, and it will be based on who you are talking to. I could care less what John Mayer thinks about black women or who he chooses to run up in when the groupies come flooding backstage for him. I’m not sure when being a sexualized object became a standard to aspire for (speaking to the women who are now pissed at him for dissing them) but the man apparently has a flavor – in… [Read more]

Man vs Spa

by Senior Editor Nia Syrah
Man getting his face shaved.

There was a time when men going to the spa was considered a gay activity, so I can understand where the man’s man would want to argue the validity of him laying in a chair with someone rubbing his feet. However, lately, there has been an influx of men who go to the spa to the point that they now make up about a third of the spa population. The places to go are no longer catered to women where the man feels out of place, but they have gender neutral atmospheres and special treatments just for him. MANicures As a woman with soft skin, being touched by a man with callused hands definitely does not feel as good as it should.  I love a hard worker just as much as the next woman, but hard workers can take care of their hands just like… [Read more]

The things children do to one another follows them for life

“The things we forgot about being different in the Public School system.” My friend’s young daughter has had issues with school, she is smart as a whip and extremely polite so as you can expect academics aren’t the issue. Although she is 22 years younger than myself I can understand what she’s going through. Blame this on me being an enormous 6 foot child mentally or the fact that my childhood memories are still pretty keen. Either way, the aspect of “fitting in” is starting to really grate on her young nerves as she battles the name-calling, the unsupportive people who look like her (more on this later) and the adults who lack the imagination to see things from her side. It’s a struggle that I remember well, and I hope for her sake that she is as strong a child as I was. If… [Read more]

Telly Savalas a playboy and a man's man

I fear for the future, I really do and for frequent readers of my blog, this will seem like a dead horse that has been kicked, molested and kicked again but I have legitimate concern and so I write. It seems that the strong surge in feminism has caused men to tuck their tails and run for the hills in this new age. Common sense would decree that a woman can be treated fairly, be allowed the same freedoms as men and fight for respect and understanding without it imposing on a man being a man. Yet somehow it has become evident that as women succeed in these endeavors, outperforming, outmaneuvering and outdoing former women in terms of salary, success and equality, the men have resolved to dispose of characteristics, roles and behavior that at one time classified them as men. To put it bluntly,… [Read more]

Dating a woman with children is never easy

Kids can be great bonuses to meeting someone new and they can also be nightmares just as easily. When a man gets older he realizes that the chance of meeting a childless woman thins dramatically and the question of “how” may come to his mind in dealing with a child that isn’t his. The single parent dilemma is felt the hardest by the children, and as a product of such a household I am lucky enough to have this insight in my dating life. Many guys just don’t know how to deal with a child that isn’t theirs and it becomes immediately evident to the child, even when the mom is disillusioned into thinking that the guy is perfect. Advice to The Single Mothers Ask your Teen: If you have a teenager it is very important that you get their approval after an introduction or… [Read more]

A Crying D-Bag does not a man make

Women I know you are moving to blur the lines even more as time goes on but please for the love of god accept our machismo and stop trying to change it. When a dude doesn’t cry over a breakup or runs to a blog to spew a whole bunch of “bitches ain’t shit” that doesn’t mean he’s insensitive, or cold, it means that he’s a man. When men as a whole start crying because their women dumped them and start bemoaning how much they miss their exes I think it’s time for the UFO to come whisk me off this little planet because at that time we have completely tapped out. The death of the Alpha Male was a hard loss to suffer but for the red blooded gangster male to die too, I just don’t know if that would make anyone happy –… [Read more]

The Pimp God has given man the Golden Cuffs

Hey ladies, the game has changed. Let me repeat that, the game has changed. While you were being drilled by your unhappily married momma to go get your education, a secure corporate job and a man who has done much more than you to play hunter/gatherer. The game up and changed itself into a six headed hydra that has got you all hustling backwards in this relationship thing. It’s made for some good reading as the new buzzwords of “black, woman, hair, single, anger” in no particular order has brought many a blog instant attention and success due to the reactions that come with it. For the jilted men of the past it has become a relative badge of honor to tell their friends how they dissed a woman, especially if she’s fine or accomplished. Guys who are in their 30s and can account for… [Read more]
