Jada Pinkett-Smith Addresses The Problems Facing Today’s Women And Men In Relationships

So Jada really went there…and I’m not mad at it.

Jada Pinkett Smith has obvious concerns about the state of relationships between men and women nowadays and has posted a long blog to her Facebook page to address them.  In her latest post, Jada talks about how the true inner beauty of a woman over time has taken a backseat to superficiality of “weaves and red bottom shoes,” while men use money as a status symbol and as a way of buying love. Jada also believes that women today have no voice and have been reduced to being just pleasure toys. She states that our culture promotes women looking good without saying anything meaningful, and men have become so frustrated with insecurity that it often leads to domestic violence in the home.  Jada also says if one person in the relationship is lost, then the entire union is doomed because the couple are supposed to balance each other out..

The war on men through the degradation of woman.

How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.

I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection. There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer. He doesn’t recognize that the create of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize. He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.

When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.

Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.

May we all find our way.

kinda ot but rme at straight men who insist that women hold the power because we can control them with our love and vagina. i hear "men are the head but women are the neck" so much on facebook (lol), it's tiring.

Ugh..ikr. And it's not like that thought process helps us women out anyway because it just makes men resent women more for feeling powerless.

it's frustrating when some women eat that shit up. i mean, it's great that you feel sexy and powerful, but just how much power do you really hold when you're still catering to the straight male gaze? :/

I have had so many arguments with my ex about this sort of thing. He claims I'm always spewing my 'feminist bs'. He's all like 'Oh you don't understand. You can get with any guy you want all you have to do is offer him sex, but it's so hard for us dudes blah blah' and it's like wtf. Yeah if all I wanted was sex from guys, then I could easily use them, but that's completely not the point.

whenever i complain to my husband about catcalling, he's all, "you know, men would love to have that kind of attention." ugh it's not always about you men. my hubby's a great guy but he really doesnt get it sometimes.

Wait, on what planet is a woman's vagina the be all end all of an actual RELATIONSHIP? If this were so, no one would have ever coined the phrase "hit it and quit it". Or maybe that never happened and I've hallucinated every scenario ever where the guy dumps the girl after he's had sex with her.

"men are the head but women are the neck"

That has to be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. Also sexist. So women are dumb, but we can control where men go? or something. What BS.
