bald woman holding head

“Ugly is a field without grass, a plant without leaves, or a head without hair.”
Ovid “The Silent Woman” The meaning of being bald as a woman: “What does it mean to be bald as a woman?” One possible sentiment might be “Oh, she is beautiful!” and as exampled in the following quote, typically this comment is reserved for the woman who lost her crown to the fight against cancer: “A bald woman on chemo is beautiful.” Yes, being bald as a woman often represent sickness, or maybe just getting old–er. Then there are those of you who are more forward thinkers and can rattle off the names of beautiful iconic bald-headed women in the entertainment industry who are not cancer survivors such as Amber Rose, Megan Fox, and Erykah Badu. Many of whom a shaved head is a matter of style or stance and choice… [Read more]

Maybe I’m odd, but I can honestly say I have never looked at another woman and wanted to copy or steal her look. Sure, I see women from time to time and give them a mental thumbs-up for on-point fashion sense, but I’ve never wanted to take a picture so I can transform myself into a carbon copy of any of those women.  When I express this to my female relatives and friends, they tend to look at me with slightly raised eyebrows. They think I’m not telling the truth. I hear things like “Come on, Dani…you mean to tell me you’ve never ripped off someone’s look?” And because of this cliché response that I get from them, I’ve come to realize that it is a common and prevalent thing for women to imitate each other’s appearance/style. Despite it being a common occurrence, I still… [Read more]

Not so long ago I was a hardworking, successful entrepreneur who wanted nothing of women in my life. Odd to write this as much as it is to look back at it but sometimes as men we get so sick of the bull that we choose to become happily single. Of course many of us know what comes with a life of single-hood especially if you have money; you get a bunch of nosy “normals” in your business trying their best to figure out what is broken in your gears. People like this tend to call young successful couples with money selfish for not wanting kids and guys like myself gay for not being married or having a baby mama of some sort. It’s true. Being who I was, the threats of nosy assumption and thirsty nieces of mom’s close friends was not enough to deter me… [Read more]

You all know the narrative, a weak good guy gets burned, swallows the Red Pill, vows to stop “lovin’ dem hoes” and becomes a cannibalistic wolf to future women. Though this happens a bit to both genders, when a man gets burnt it’s a lifelong scar that he never recovers from… isn’t it? Well Issa Rae has started a web series to tell the tale of the Wolf-kind in a very funny way (I know I was laughing watching it) so we felt it only right that we shared this little gem of a show with you. One time for the poor SOB who got put to sleep at 5:21, somebody throw some cold water on that boy and tell him to get back in the fight! No seriously, this is a funny take on a very real transformation that happens every day. Dogs aren’t… [Read more]

It was Charles Laughton as Quasimodo the Hunchback in The 1930’s Hunchback of Notre Dame that made me swear to myself that I would never be a part of a “mob”. My Alpha Mentality makes it hard for me to be one of those people spurred on by others to “burn the witch”, picket the building, or lynch the —– wait never mind. It’s all the same to me, a bunch of simple people being led by a single thought, forgoing individuality to become a mob. No thank you, unless I am at the head of it all, I want no part of it. Mobs don’t think, they react and follow In The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Quasimodo was a broken hunchback bell ringer for the church. His master, a high ranking church official saw a beautiful gypsie girl and orders the hunchback to kidnap… [Read more]
